Personal update: we’re going to the USA!

    2018 is going to be an exciting year with many changes I am looking forward to. Also regarding traveling. After months of preparations I can finally share our plans: Koen (my boyfriend) and I are going to the United States for a few months! We will fly in tomorrow (Thursday) and return somewhere in April. I can’t wait to shop daily at amazing craft stores like Michael’s, JOANN and Hobby Lobby. A promising start of the new year!

    Connected Bows Shawl

    Connected bows shawl free crochet pattern scarf wearable

    A new shawl pattern for the cold winter months! My mom came up with the idea to make a very wide shawl with a small detail in the middle. Simple but not too simple! By making the shawl extra wide, you can wear it in different ways: like a normal scarf around the neck or like a shawl around the shoulders.  The pattern is easy to follow and a good project for beginners as well.

    For this design I worked with a new yarn cake called ‘Romance Merino Silk’ from the Etsy shop Wollelfe. The shop owner Katrin is from Austria and dyes the yarn herself. Katrin ships worldwide and has many color options available. If you want to work with fingering yarn, she has two options: Merino-Silk and Merino-Twin. The Merino-Silk blend is perfect for items like shawls, wraps, etc. It drapes really wonderful and has a nice sheen because of the silk content. The Merino-Twin is perfect for sweaters and things that are washed very often. Continue Reading
