What’s in the box?

A few weeks ago The Sweaty Knitter asked where our WIPs live, as well as our assorted crafting supplies. My WIPs usually live in plastic bags, but my knitting and sewing supplies do have a more romantic home. I found this box in my Grandma’s wardrobe full to the brim with vintage gloves. While I…

Lola, Honey, We Need to Talk

I’m completely obsessed with the A Stitch in Time books by Jane Waller/Susan Crawford, and the number of finished objects from them reflect on that obsession. My only problem is that I don’t have suitable seperates to wear with my vintage jumpers! If I don’t want to show my belly to everyone, that is. I…

A Stitch in Time: This one for parties

I was fairly overdressed when my friend Peiyi and I met up for lunch at the local Falafel restaurant this Friday. I had donned red lipstick, my black oxfords and my new sparkly jumper and felt quite fabulous! Afterwards we went and snapped a few pictures of the whole outfit; even though it was a miserable,…

A Stitch in Time: To Wear With A Summer Suit

I wish I could say I finished this sweater in the time between posting my Such Flattering Puff Sleeves sweater and today.

A Stitch in Time: Such Flattering Puff Sleeves

This yarn traveled long and far to meet me, all the way from China. My Chinese friend Peiyi, who’s studying here in Germany (although we met sharing a room at summer university in Budapest), brought it back as a present for me. Isn’t she the sweetest? This was such a great gift, and I was…

A Stitch in Time: It Cannot Fail To Please

I’ve been looking forward to showing you this jumper for weeks now, but somehow never got around to taking pictures! It’s mostly because I’ve become a perfectionist when it comes to photoshoots, but I think I’ll have to learn that the photoshoots I have in my head (in this case I pictured a lovely retro…

A Stitch in Time: Cable Bolero

Do you have that ONE project? That project that caused you nothing but pain and suffering pain and also did I mention the pain? I bought the yarn approximately four years ago. I recently learnt it’s the colourway “erika”, which I find very pretty for a yarn that came from the deepest pits of hell…

A Stitch in Time: Made So Quickly

My best friend and I finally went to see Frozen. Usually we’re terrible hipsters and only watch obscure indie movies in dingy little theaters with about two other people present, but we both can never resist a Disney movie. I think it’s a first for Disney to put the relationship of the two female leads in…
