Sooooo I should really finally watch Star Wars, huh? (Well, technically I did watch Episode III, but only because the movie we wanted to see was sold out or something, and I have basically zero memory of it.) My personal nerd failure aside, these mittens were too awesome to not make them for my friend Jasmin,… Read More Confession: I still haven’t watched Star Wars.
Now I’m not sure if I should claim that this project was inspired by Twin Twin’s Eurovision Song Contest contribution. On the one hand, it’s a very fun song – on the other hand, our poor neighbours lost abominably … … but in the end, I started this pullover weeks before I even heard this… Read More Moi j’voulais une moustache

I made up the pattern as I went along (well, it isn’t that complicated, is it) and used yarn I had left over from other projects.… Read More Last-minute presents! Or, how to make two gifts within 24 hours
I adore knitwear for babies and children! But I’m too slow for it. Everytime I finish something for my goddaughter, she has already outgrown it or will in approx. 2 seconds. This time though she’ll have to try very hard, because I can wear that hat! It’s unfortunate that it ended up being so big,… Read More Astronomer (Birthday/Christmas Presents 2/10)
