Needles, yarn, comfort and sadness

…or how I got back to knitting. First of all, this weather we have here is crazy! It was about 20 degrees for a while, and now it’s considerably cold again, with heavy rain clouds and in some parts of the country – snow! So what does sadness have to do with it? A close…

We are “go” for launch!

…or how I couldn’t resist knitting up a NaNoWriMo mascot. For those of you who don’t know what NaNoWriMo is, let me introduce you to a month of writing furiously, often ignoring your family, friends, bosses (well…maybe not so much), all with the intention to write at least 50 000 words throughout November and, thus,…

Creative update

….or how the things are piling up! Warning: photo heavy! First up we have those little bags finally put to use. One of them holds my medical supplies, the other one stamps, ink and other small stuff: Then we have the big laundry bag, my newest FO, in action as well: Yes, it’s that huge…

Bye bye Etsy

… or how nothing is a perfect option for everyone. Let’s face it: Etsy’s a magnificent site for all of us creative people, from all walks of interests, and I will never dispute that fact. But likewise, Etsy isn’t ideal for everyone, and there comes a point where you need to just stop, observe and…

Ugh, I can’t…

…or how I will never knit a log cabin again! Seriously! Never would be too soon to work on it! There’s this blanket for a baby I was telling you about, with embroidered companion cube symbol in each of the blocks from which the blanket is made of. There are 12 blocks in total and…

… or when they make you feel so grateful you could cry! August was my birthday month. This year, after manifesting a particular laptop that I liked being fixed FOR FREE, I said to myself and honestly meant it that I don’t need another gift. That was quite enough, thank you very much. But my…

Patreon account went live…

…or how I feel so proud of myself, even though I’m still a work in progress when it comes to making videos! To keep matters as simple and as fair as possible, I’ve put all my videos on Patreon for free along with parts of PDF that are following the videos, so that you can…

Changes, changes…

….or how my Patreon project is going to pan out! Remember how I told you a few days ago that I’ll put a PDF file here on the blog, and link my Patreon page for potential patrons to see the video? Well this wouldn’t be quite fair, would it? So this is how it’s going…

Some big news…

It’s funny how sometimes the only thing you need is a little nudge in the right direction. That nudge creates a stronger and stronger roll down the hill, and it gains more momentum.

Away for a while…

…or I have so many knitting projects! Most important of all: Shleeves! When I first saw the pattern I knew I had to have it! I never usually buy patterns, if I did I’d be broke, but this one was just calling to me! It took me about a week overall to finish it, but…
