That’s the way I like to knit

That’s the way I like to knit

I came across this article about knitting while watching Netflix. Total recognition. I’ve red about people who read and knit at the same time. For the life of me I can’t combine those two hobby’s.

WIP-Wednesday: Craftfulness shawl

Anyway I bought 2 skeins lovely merino (80%) wool, 100 gram/400 meter in the color ‘Waddenzee’. (Waddenzee is a part of the North sea … Continue reading

WIP-Wednesday: my first blanket

WIP-Wednesday: my first blanket

I was knitting with my Knitpro interchangeable needles when my cable broke. So I went online, searched needles but with only € 3,- for a cable I didn’t want to pay postage costs. In a whim I went to a semi local yarn store on the small change they still did sell Knitpro cables. And … Continue reading
