Fern Lace Shawl

This is going to be the last one of my "Christmas present"-posts. But I still want to show this shawl to you because this was the present for my mom! (And I'm still in winter mode because we have so much snow! :) )


Asymmetric Alpaca Shawl

I'm happy to show you this absolutely beautiful asymmetric alpaca shawl that I made as a Christmas present for my grandma.


Vintersol - Sweater for my man :)

It's been a while... the new year has come. First, I want to wish you all a happy and healthy 2015!! :) I hope you had some quiet time over the holidays, a nice New Year's Eve of course, as well as a lovely start with this first week in january.

The days were busy before Christmas, a lot had to be prepared and organized and I also knitted some gifts for loved ones that I want to show you in the upcoming posts. Because, finally, I CAN show them to you! :) (it wouldn't have been a surprise if I had put them up on the blog before...)

I want to start with my favorite one and also my biggest Christmas project: the Vintersol Men Sweater! :)


Christmas Present WIP - Joining a Sweater for Raglan Shaping

My sweater project can see the finish line by now! :)
In this post I want to show you how you are putting the three parts (body and sleeves) onto one circular needle. This can be a bit confusing, and so I want to explain to you what you should look out for.


WIP-Wednesday: HOW TO use Excel to Calculate Knitting

Today I want to show you how you can use Excel for some calculations you need to make when you are designing or knitting a garment. And of course I'm going to show you the progress of the sweater I am knitting for my man, as well as how you can knit the pattern I use for the sleeves.
