I am done with knitting water. No more! Over and out! However, here are pictures of the dark blue water for you to see. As always, J is modelling for me and – again – he prefers to be a bird … Continue reading →
J under (knitted) water. I have finished the blanket – yay! At the end, there was not enough yarn left to knit the last corner … Hence, I decided on a “cuddle corner” made of a fluffy yarn in matching … Continue reading →
Time is up – J is coming home tonight! My little son has spent the last 15 days together with a friend in France (where the friend’s grandparents live). 15 days are an ETERNITY when you’re 10 – remember? (They … Continue reading →
Remember I made a blanket for Peter? Finally last week we met and I must say: he is adorable. I don’t think I have ever seen such a pretty little boy (other than J of course) with so cute little … Continue reading →
Still working on water, occasionally knitting squids or making jam when tired of crafting. Amy is busy bringing the huge red octopus into being. Same old, same old … J has been gone for a week now (he is in … Continue reading →
Last week, M saw it first and handed me the paper: close to where we live women are beautifying a long abandoned water well by lining it with blankets – crocheted or knitted – in all shades of blue and … Continue reading →
It’s been a while since I finished Elise – it’s about time I show pictures. The minute I was done crocheting (of course on a Sunday with all shops and stores being closed …) I wanted to wash and block … Continue reading →
Just like every other kid, J wanted to watch ALL the games and of course I would not let him (too many, too late). However, he got to watch quite a few and soccer would resume power in our house … Continue reading →
Three weeks ago, my cousin had another baby: “boy N°3.” His name is Peter and the cousin asked for a blanket for her little son. (Isn’t it always nice to be asked?!) Of course, I started crocheting at once :) … Continue reading →
The first attempt (knitted) was a total failure, the second (again: knitted) was better but sagging and not at all what I had wanted it to be. The third time’s the charm! Here is the tunic I have made: It’s crocheted … Continue reading →
No tunic! Ever! And I DON’T want to talk about it! Well …, in fact I do. Is there a pattern you would recommend – preferably crochet – maybe with granny squares (or the like) at the bottom hem? Something … Continue reading →
Usually, I have no problem (anymore) to knit or crochet in public. Actually, I love to keep my hands busy in cafes or when using public transportation. So when M suggested we’d go to Hoppegarten (the racecourse outside Berlin) on … Continue reading →
Last year, I bought three of those bags at an appartment shopping, hosted by a young designer. Two of the bags are made from fabric Sara has bought in Africa. Originally, each of them had only one string but that turned out to be unfunctional. Luckily, the pink lace was long enough to cut into halves (which is what I did). The green and silber bag has shoe laces now :)
The turqouis bag has been with me for almost 10 years now. It was given to us when J was born (it came with a bib if I remember right).
The blue and pink sack is my favorite. It has tiny little white dots. At present, it holds the “less loved” WIP though. A black lace wrap made of a thread thin as surgical silk (…) that I may never finish …
I much rather knit the green merino wrap in the green and silver bag. However, somehow the orange sack gets to come along with me more often than its silblings. Right now, it is keeping the white Elise shawl.
