Although I have been quite busy with my knitting (happily busy, I must say!) I just made visit cards for my project to spread around Utrecht and the Netherlands in general:) I’m quite happy with the result… What do you think?
I have already managed to do some small promotion in a very “gezellig” coffee place, and they even alowed me to expose some of my pieces there. It’s time to get creative and learn more techniques!

Old scarf new scarf

Standard

Some months ago I knitted a bulky long scarf which in the end didn’t turn out as I planned. It turns out I’m a fan of infinity scarfs… So I finally had the courage to undo it, do it again as I thought I would like it more aaaand! here is the final result! Scarfs are not so expensive to make plus they make you warm without necessarily needing to wear more heavy clothes. I think people underestimate scarfs in the knitting field because it’s considered the basic of knitting, and after that initial period you should move on to something more complex. I might do a post about that in the future, as I quite don’t share the same opinion. For now I’m too excited with my new warm piece. It’s getting cold in the Netherlands and I’m well prepared! 🙂

Another work in progress – a crochet scarf

Standard

I’m currently working on a crochet scarf that a friend of mine ordered. I want to finish soon so that I can focus on other things and try some different yarn I have at home.  Although, of course, I always enjoy doing crochet;)

I’m also planning on giving knitting/ crochet workshops in February and would like to plan them carefully.

For now here is an image on the scarf, which I hope to finish this weekend!

A work in progress!

Standard

This is something I’ve been working on for a while… It’s a crochet blanket with wool I bought in Portugal at an old small wool shop. It’s quite fast to do and I really like how it looks! I crochet big squares as in the upper right picture and then I sew them. What do you guys think? would you like one for yourself?

I’m so excited about this blanket!!!!
I will keep you updated;)

Hat!

Standard

The biggest part of the hat was made with Estonian wool offered by a friend. I’m glad with the final result, although I really should start on working on slouchier hats ahah.
