With spring coming in a few weeks, there will be lovely days to sit outside. In the beginning it will be a little bit cold in the evenings, so a nice blanket will give you some warmth. With this in my mind, I started knitting a lovely cable blanket.Continue reading “Knitting a beige cable blanket (DIY)”
In winter I always like it to sit on the couch, watching tv and at the same time knitting or crocheting a blanket. Mostly I’m working on a couple of projects and it’s sometimes not easy to really finish a blanket. The knitting is not the problem, but after that all the loose ends need to be fixed in the blanket. And I really don’t like that. And I also want to share the blankets with you here on my blog. For now I have two plaids (with this one) finished to blog about and two blankets that need some loose-ends-work and also writing a blog about. And two new ones are on their way, which more than halfway with the knitting part. Oeps a lot of work to do then (while I first have to work on my Master Thesis to get that finished too).Continue reading “A new warm blanket with pattern to knit (#DIY)”
Knitting and crocheting a blanket, but also making it from fabrics, I Love it! I have no idea what I will do with al the plaids that I make, but for now they are fun to use in my photos. And they look cosy in the house and they can of course keep us warm on cold days. This Black and white blanket was in my head for some time. So a couple of months ago I started this project. But as usual I started a new one when I was halfway and after that another one. And I was already working on two others…. So finally I decided that could only start with a new one, after I finish one from the todo list. By the way it’s not that I never work on a partly finished plaid. I try to knit or crochet some rows of all the plaids every week, except when it’s too hot. Then I skip the winter plaids. So because I wanted to start with a new summer plaid with cotton, I had to work hard the past few weeks to finish this Black and White one;-) Do you also want to make this Black and White plaid?

A couple of weeks ago I bought this beautiful teapot Theo from Stelton. A real beauty and it was on my wishlist for some time now;-)
The teapot is black, altough it looks a little bit more like dark grey. On the inside the teapot is made of ceramics and on the outside is a layer of cast-iron finish.
For a while the Bottle Vases from FoekjeFleur are on my wishlist. Lately you see these vases more and more on Instagram, what made me even more enthousiast about the Bottle Vases. So two weeks ago I thought it was time to finally order a Bottle Vase at FoekjeFleur.Continue reading “FoekjeFleur: Bottle vases that look like cleaning bottles”
