Are you ready? Because here we go! We will start today with the pattern of the big blanket.  It was so nice to see how you worked on the practice piece. For most of you the start was a doorstep that had to be taken,  but almost everyone agreed that once you got it how to do this, it wasn’t very difficult after that. So if you still have doubts, or if you didn’t manage to do it yet, please don’t give up. And maybe you will succeed with the new video’s. A slightly different way of crocheting row 1 In the first video ofRead More →

Today is the day! We will start! Months of preparing, trying things out, designing, drawing and crocheting, thinking of how to setup the video’s, how I wanted to do the tutorials for the website pages, making pictures, writing pattern descriptions, today is the release of all that work.

When you’ve already started with something new, your focus is usually with the new stuff, but if you want to end a previous project with a good feeling, you will have to finish these last ends. This is true for crafting projects, but also when you make video’s. And this was also the case for the video I released today 🙂 . You may have seen I’m busy with preparing a CAL, and that is so fun to do! An amazing lot of work, it really is, but so fun to do! But I told I would also do a video aboutRead More →

Here it is: The Freedom, not Perfection shawl! I am so pleased with this shawl, how it turned out! The colors, the drape, I just love everything about it! And so far I’ve heard only very enthusiastic responses on it. Sounds a bit, ehm, well, you know, not so very humble, but I would lie if I would say I’m not proud of it. I will not do very much talking about it on this blog post, because I wrote  all I wanted to share about it on the page here, or look for it in the crochet patterns menu. So go there, you will findRead More →
