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.

July Works in Progress

This summer’s been heating up over here, and I’ve been a bit lazy crafting-wise because of the temperatures. To be honest, I haven’t touched my Sage cardigan in weeks!

Hemlocks 1, 2 and 3

I really enjoy simple projects right now, among other reasons because they’re usually more suitable for everyday use – consequently I get more wear out of them. I’ve seen a few Hemlocks around, but it was Anushka’s Penitentiary Pyjama version (so fun!) that made me download the pattern eventually. I bought three different jerseys at…
