  • The art of being alone

    The art of being alone

    I had the fabric for this top cut out and ready to go for quite a while, but only came around to sewing it on a day this August when I was completely, blissfully alone. I know I sound like an asshole to some people when I say that I like being alone so let […]


  • August Review

    August Review

    August 2022 saw my return to this blog, after my efforts in this area had been sporadic to say the least for months. I did some knitting, I did some sewing, and then I documented the results for all the internet to see! Why yes, I’m patting myself on the shoulder here. More importantly, it’s […]


  • Body-positivity, or: putting yourself out there

    Body-positivity, or: putting yourself out there

    I wish I were super body-positive all the time. (Don’t we all?) I guess I’d take body-content as well, or try to shoot for body-appreciative at least. It has taken me so far in life after all! I’m at the point where I take care of it by trying to eat healthy and exercise regularly, […]


  • It’s summer

    It’s summer

    … and I’m walking around the countryside in a longsleeve jersey jacquard top because apparently I like to sweat. Well, I don’t really, but I’ve taken two weeks off from my thesis and I’m trying to catch up on fun stuff like reading, crafting, and this blog! I’ve finished this top at some point in […]


  • A bed jacket for the evening

    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

    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 […]


  • October WIP

    October WIP

    I’m embracing slow crafting even if it doesn’t make for a regular blog schedule. The Sage cardigan is on a break because the pattern of the two front pieces didn’t line up. I’m taking a breather until I can return to it without stress or anger! I’ve started sewing this box jacket using the fabric […]


  • Sunday walks in the countryside

    Sunday walks in the countryside

    We took a Sunday walk to the new observation tower near our town. There’s a hot debate regarding its design, usefulness, and construction costs raging here, but we’ll leave the local affairs out of this blog post. I actually quite like the light wooden lattices on its walls, and think it’s a fitting piece of […]
