SWEET DREAMS: RUNNING A KNIT AND CROCHET SHOP

Now that my thesis is one of the last obstacles to tackle before I’ll graduate, I find myself being questioned by family and friends all the time about what it is that I’m gonna do after. Truth is, I don’t know. Yes, I’d love to have a job or PhD position in my field (= ancient Greek read more »

EYECATCHING CROCHETED BASKETS BY DARLING BE BRAVE

Since I’ve been making blankets on order now, I’m even more interested in new and surprising things to knit or crochet (move over scarves and beanies). Even though there are a lot of amazing and talented knitters/crocheters out there, I think many designs look really old-fashioned and outdated to me. This is probably due to read more »

LET’S START A WINTER BLANKET SHOP

This is really, really cool (I think): I finished this prototype winter blanket in black-grey-white marl yarn and SOLD IT to a happy customer! Which makes me a happy crocheter, ‘cause it means I’m not just crocheting for my own fun and on my own expenses, but also for someone else’s fun and on someone read more »

CROCHETED BLANKET

Finished my very first crocheting project since I was… nine years old? And already, it’s quite a big one! A few months ago, I promised my bestie to make her something for her new home (which is completely mint-themed), so when I saw this acrylic wool at Zeeman, I knew I had to crochet her read more »

OZETTA BLANKETS

The last couple of days were just like fall here in The Netherlands. Or actually, just like a typical Dutch Summer: rainy, windy, grey-ish. Sounds not so fun, but on the brighter side: it makes me wanna cuddle up on the couch with lots of yarn, knitting or crocheting scarves and hats and blankets. Lately, read more »

@MISKUNNN KNITTING INSPIRATION

Now that Summer holidays are here, I finally have time to pick up some knitting needles again. It’s a shame knitting still has this granny-feel to it haha, because LOOK AT THIS INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT. I’ve been on the lookout for some great inspirational knitting accounts, but this one really tops them all. Love the precious read more »

WINTER IN HOLLAND

I’ve always said that if I can’t find a job after school and my career turns out to be a flop (chances are high), I’d start a knit store. I’d be knitting scarfs and blankets and pillow covers aaaall day, selling them online to those who love handmade craftmanship as much as I do. Dream read more »

KNITTING IDEAS

DIAGONAL PINSTRIPE SCARF I must admit that for yesterday’s post, I accidentally ran into this blog by Purl Soho (a knitting- and sewing shop in New York) while searching for cool knitted blankets. In the process however, I got completely lost in between all the cool knitting ideas that are to be found on the read more »

KNITTED BLANKET

When I see a knitted blanket like this… my hands start to itch to buy myself a shitload of a wool and start knitting something huge! It’ll probably take forever (taking into account my knitting speed), but – as I mentioned earlier – I just love timeconsuming projects. For now, I’m busy finishing my friend’s read more »
