Let's knit!

Okay, so I've finally bought myself a pair of knitting needles! Yay me! I´m so excited to get started, but I´m terrified as well! Will I be able to teach myself how to knit? Or will it be so difficult I´ll almost immediately give up on it and stick with crocheting?

One thing I know for sure: I will not find out just by pondering on it, so I'll just have to try!

Here are a few projects I'd love to make once I've mastered this skill ;-)

Are you trying different and new crafts at the moment?
Or do you have a knitting pattern for me you'd like to recommend?
I'd love to hear from you! Have a lovely week!

The Joy of Slouch!

Recently I've crocheted two slouch hats.
My Happy Hippy Grey (free pattern here):

And my Joy of Slouch (free pattern here):

We've had a cold-ish summer so I've been excited to wear these, but somehow the weather has been warm the last few days! Yaay! But... now I can't wear my hats! Bummer..

I'm also a bit thrown off crocheting because it's that hot.. What do you think? Should I think of a summer project to crochet? Or should I just enjoy the weather and not crochet? Do you make a summer project lately?

C´est les champignons!

It feels like we skipped the summer weather this year. We went from winter to spring-like weather to fall! I love the sun and the warmth and everything about summer! So I´m sad! On the other hand it inspires me to craft!

Based on this tutorial I made these cute mushroom-babies!

I love my Mom

I love my mom. And her birthday is coming up. I'm not sure what to get her! She's one of those persons who has everything already! And she'll probably won't LOVE something handmade.. After all, I'm not 6 anymore ^_^

Although... I probably could make something. Something lovely. But what? I already crocheted a shawl for her last christmas. She did love that..

What have you given your mom on her last birthday? Did she give you hints what to give her or did you think of it yourself?

I'll need to think about it.. In the meantime suggestions are welcome!

Isn´t life sweet..

The other day I made this cotton candy bally for a friend of mine:

But I never dared to expect such a lovely reaction from her. She said nothing at first but just gave me the biggest hug! So sweet! Isn´t life sweet? I think it is!

Here´s the pattern link! (free!)

Oh My!

It has been eight months(!!!!) since my last post! I can't believe it has been so long!

To be honest, I needed a bit of time. Time for me. I won't go into detail because well.. I just won't. Everybody has rough patches in their life, and I just went through one I think. I wasn't able to post messages, I wasn't able to read other blogs. But you know what? I can now! I'm here writing this message! Yay!

Next message coming soon! ^_^
