It’s that time of the year again: it’s winter sales time. In the last couple of weeks I’ve updated the shop with items that you have seen on my Instagram and maybe also here, during the months of November and December, and that I didn’t put on sale. Now they are out and also with […]
One of the notions that I use the most during my knitting is the magic loop. It is very helpful when you need to knit in circle a small number of stitches and you don’t have a small cable to do it. Of course, you can use double pointed needles, but I know that they […]
I will close this year reading list at 82 books. I’ve read some amazing books, others were just fine and others still didn’t even made into the list after reading a couple of pages. I don’t think I can find one favourite book of the year, let’s just go with this selection.
