A trip to the beach 


My summer in Swanage blanket is coming along nicely. It’s my first time working with this yarn the scheepjes color crafter. It’s really soft and nice to work with. The beach is done and I’m working on the sea. I love this pattern! It’s worked with two strands of yarn and the finished blanket will be so soft and warm. I’ll post more pictures when I’m closer to the finish line.

Summer in Swanage

So now that mandala madness is over I’ll go on to another project on my to do list. This time it’s the Summer in Swanage blanket. I fell in love with this blanket at first sight. The colorful beach huts and the sand and ocean. I absolutely love Dedri’s patterns. The way she writes it just feels so familiar and comfortable. And her designs are so beautiful. As you can see on my top 10 projects Sophie is number one and I actually missed following a pattern from Dedri. I have had the yarn pack sitting in my stash for some time now. And now is the time!!! I’m so excited! 

I have already made the first beach hut and working on number 2. I love it.

The madness has come to an end


Last part is done, ends are sewn in. And of course I had to take advantage of the morning sunlight to take some pictures. 

It has been an existing journey that now has come to an end. 

I have another mandala that I had to stop working on to try and keep up with the cal. But due to hot weather I didn’t manage to keep up with this one either. But the second one will have to wait a bit. I have some other projects I really want to do. And I just decided to make another Sophie. 

I hope you like my spring mandala as much as I do. 

Thank you for following.

Diechspielerei shawl


I have had this yarn cake from Wolltraum sitting in my stash for some time wanting to turn it into this shawl. The pattern is from the Facebook group Wolltraum-fan-group. I love how it turned out. The yarn color is paradiso 3ply from wolltraum.

Skull shawl


I bought this really soft yarn but it didn’t fit the project I had in mind. So I made this skull shawl instead. I really like it. It was a nightmare to block and it’s not perfect but I’m happy with it 😊 and I think I need to make another one later. 

I made the eyes separately but next time I think I’ll try the other method described in the pattern to maybe get a smoother surface. 

This is the pattern:
