MERINO TWEED KNITTING UPDATE

Almost a month ago, I told you about my knitting wool order, of which this gorgeous Katia Merino Tweed was part. This yarn was chosen by a friend of mine, because I promised her (as a birthday present) to knit her an infinity scarf. It’s basically going to look pretty much like my last creation read more »

KATIA MERINO TWEED AND MORE

Knitting-time! Last week I received my Wolplein order with some brand new knitting wool. The reason for this order was the b-e-a-utiful grey Katia Merino Tweed, which I’m going to use to knit a birthday-present-scarf for a friend who’s just as fond of grey (and black and white) as I am. Since Wolplein delivers for read more »

MY FIRST INFINITY SCARF [AND HOW TO KNIT IT]

Here it isssssss, the long expected pictures of my first hand-knitted infinity scarf! If you follow me regularly, you might know I’ve been working on this for quite some time (and I’m working on more scarves in the meantime), so I’m pretty proud of my first creation!

BASKETWEAVE STITCH KNITTING PROJECT

Since my first scarf is finished (the result will be published sooooon, I promise!), I started a new knitting project (again, a scarf, of course) in basketweave stitch. This is a super easy stitch, but it gives a really cool pattern. I’m using a cheap, grey, acrylic wool from Action (where would I be without Action?) read more »

Well, I’m still going strong and I’m going to show you my first-scarf-creation very soon, but here’s a small update on some new wool I ordered! You probably know I love to shop cheap yarns at Zeeman, Action or Big Bazar, but sometimes, read more »

KNITTING WITH A BLACK-GREY-WHITE YARN

I’m in love with this black-grey-white knitting yarn from Zeeman. It was supercheap (and no, it’s not real wool, it’s acrylic), but it’s a nice yarn to try out different stitches (on different needle sizes) with and see how the colour patterns turns out. I started knitting in a “regular” knit stitch with 3-5mm needles. read more »

KNITTING PROGRESS AND IDEAS

The amount of knitting-related posts was dropping to a dangerously low level lately (=p), so I thought I’ll show you my knitting process again. My fuzzy infinity scarf (below) is expanding like crazy, haha! I still love working on it: the two yarns and the stitch make it interesting and I can’t wait to try read more »

WOOL AND THE GANG INSPIRATION

Here we are, Wool and the Gang has made me talk about knitting again. I told you about this amazing gang earlier and showed my favourites of their designs here, but now it’s time for some good old inspiration. When I see this, I just can’t wait to become a knitting expert, get a job read more »

SEED STITCH KNITTING PROGRESS

You’re probably getting crazy because of me blattering about knitting all the time (I even introduced a new category on the blog, called ‘knitting’, haha). But you’ll have to admit I’m doing a good job! These were the first pictures taken from my grey-scarf-to-be. Right now, it is much longer already, but it shows very read more »
