    Salut Manu

    Sometimes you work at things for a long time and they just come out … meh. Like this cardigan. I started it at the beginning of December and finished it a couple of days ago. It was a technically challenging pattern for me. It took time and effort and staying power. And it came out […]

    February Works in Progress

    I’m still working on the Manu cardigan. I’ve finished both sleeves and joined them to the body. The yarn (DROPS Baby Alpaca Silk) is gorgeous! 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. […]

    I’m working on …

    I’m knitting the Manu Cardigan by Kate Davies in DROPS Baby Alpaca Silk right now. I’ve finished the body and started working on the sleeves. As is always the case with Kate Davies’ patterns, Manu is well written and easy to follow. I’ve made a lot of cotton cardigans lately, so it’ll be great to […]

    So what’s new?

    I’m super excited about celebrating Christmas season in our apartment together! Technically, we already had Christmas in our apartment last year, but we had moved in only in November and pretty much everything was still a construction site! Now we’re settled in we can actually enjoy the holidays here and start some traditions of our […]

    Me-Made May ’14 – Summary

    I know May has been over for a while now, but I still wanted to post the promised MeMadeMay ’14 roundup – life has just been very demanding. First a gallery with every garment I’ve worn in May! Click on one of the pictures to enlarge it. I really have to thank So, Zo… for creating […]


  • Me Made May ’14 – Week One

    Me Made May ’14 – Week One

    I finished the first week of Me-Made May and let me tell you, this is haaaaaaaaard. I’ve actually got to think about what to wear in the morning, and I’m not big on thinking at that time of the day. Usually I just blindly throw on something and hope it looks good. It has been […]


  • Kate Davies: owls

    Kate Davies: owls

    After I injured my ankle the second time at the end of last year, I was in pretty bad shape. That’s why I decided I’d use this spring break to make my body stronger. I figured if I trained the muscles in my foot, the injury would be less likely to happen again. My preferred […]


  • WIP Wednesday: Plans, plans, plans!

    WIP Wednesday: Plans, plans, plans!

    Like most knitters, I have an incredible backlog of unfinished projects. You know how it is: you get frustrated or bored with something, there’s a new shiny thing that seems so much more interesting, and then you end up with a bunch of half-finished stuff packed away in boxes everywhere. And don’t get my started […]
