A bed jacket for the evening

I don’t actually like to wear pyjamas for sleeping. Instead I prefer oversized t-shirts, or nightgowns if I want to be fancy. Problem is that it can get cold lounging on the couch in the evening like that, or when getting up in the morning! I had looked for a suitable cardigan pattern for a…

Lilies and Bees

I’ve been silent here on the blog, but I haven’t been idle in real life! Last year I had a moment of major frustration with my knitting and sewing and needed a bit of a break. Instead I decided to concentrate on one project where I’d take it slow. Besides, I don’t need to craft…

Sunday walks in the countryside

I took the cardigan with me on the train ride to Vienna, and I guess because of all the travel chaos I was absent-minded and didn’t read the pattern properly.…

Burda Sleeping Mask

I made a sleeping mask. I don’t need a sleeping mask. At least not for its intended purpose! It was actually my mom’s idea to sew myself a sleeping mask. I told her that Oscar would slap me at night to wake me up, and that I was scared he’d accidentally hurt my eyes. He’s…
