    Violet and Cozy

    A few years back, I had to weird habit of picking up one single skein of yarn at my LYS because I thought they were pretty or I was curious or whatever. Of course, having only one skein somewhat limits you when choosing a pattern … hence these lonely, single skeins lead a sad, sad […]

  • Mystery Yarn

    Mystery Yarn

    Do you sometimes wonder why on earth you bought a certain yarn? In my continued efforts to reduce my yarn stash, I dug out one skein of this greenish cotton, Lana Grossa Cotofilo. I’m not a big fan of working with cotton and I never wear this colour. It’s a mystery why I thought I […]

  • Owls! (Birthday/Christmas Presents 3/10)

    Owls! (Birthday/Christmas Presents 3/10)

    This is the other hat I made for my goddaughter; she’ll probably get this one for her birthday and the other one for Christmas. The pattern is the utterly adorable Who? – and for the records, yes, these are owls, even though not a single member of my family recognized them as such. They are […]

    Astronomer (Birthday/Christmas Presents 2/10)

    I adore knitwear for babies and children! But I’m too slow for it. Everytime I finish something for my goddaughter, she has already outgrown it or will in approx. 2 seconds. This time though she’ll have to try very hard, because I can wear that hat! It’s unfortunate that it ended up being so big, […]

    Turquoise (Birthday/Christmas Presents 1/10)

    At the end of every year, I’m stressed. As it happens, all of my family and friends that I give presents to have their birthday either in November or even December. That means I have to come up with two different ideas for presents within a month. I’m really bad at thinking of good presents! […]

  • My first cardigan!

    My first cardigan!

    I finally did it! I finished my first knitted piece of clothing! You see, I’ve been knitting hats, scarves, shawls, socks and whathaveyou for years now, but I’ve never been brave enough to tackle a cardigan or sweater. What if I made it too small? Too big? What if I made a mistake in the […]

  • Butterfly Shawl

    Oh boy, taking pictures of this thing was a major pain in the ass. My camera was all like, let’s make this as blue as possible! When the original’s colour is more like a red-violet. Even the pictures below aren’t entirely correct, but they’re close enough and I can’t be bothered anymore. It’s the second […]

  • Tátra Utca Shawl

    Tátra Utca Shawl

    The pattern is just for a kerchief; it was smaller than I had pictured it, so I added another repeat of the stockinette pattern to make it bigger and use up all the yarn. (I have quite a huge collection of leftover yarn. It’s usually too much to throw it away, but too small to […]
