Knitted sweater inspired by a dream

I dreamt that I met a witch. A proper witch with supernatural powers. She oozed power, I felt rather intimidated. But her power was good, deeply rooted in nature. I met her in a blossoming apple orchard, she had short

Knitted Icelandic sweater, ehm, for the indoors…

My childhood in Norway was kept warm by pretty, though bulky and itchy, hand-knitted sweaters. After knitting a few warm (and less itchy sweaters, thank you new yarns) sweaters myself, I realised I often didn’t wear them…. as too warm.

Traffic safe beanie and scarf

Granny crochet cardigan – with a modern twist

I fell for this ‘simple’ pattern by Phildar: a crochet cardigan, with granny lines instead of squares. I opted for colder colours though. It’s a pleasant summer cardi to wear, in cotton. But it took me a whole year… a
