Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The name of this pattern is a movie quote, of course. And while I was forced to watch said movie significantly more often than I would have liked, snow and ice are something I long for. And as we do not get any, why not at least knit my own personal flurry of snow for my feet?

Knitting: Cowl
Sometimes inspiration strikes from the most surprising places. The colourwork pattern used in this cowl comes from a house in the game Overwatch. Set in a fictional version of Venice, this house has a beautiful tile pattern that lends itself perfectly for knitting. While I don’t even enjoy playing the game, it is a lot of fun to watch and has w...

Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
The knitting community is incredibly generous at any time, but when it comes to sharing yarn with each other, we shine. The fabulous yarn for this design was given to me by someone called Emma, so obviously, this pattern had to be named after her. Erma is the name today’s Emma probably derives from and I would not be a good medievalist without ...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
There are many things I’m on the fence about: Contrasting cuffs, heels and toes on a socks, for example. They always tend to look scrappy, as if you ran out of yarn to do a complete pair of socks. But with just a tiny but of colourwork for the transition, it really looks beautiful, don’t you agree? These almost vanilla socks work up very quickl...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
A camera obscura bends and twists rays of light in angles around themselves to produce a picture that is mirrored and upside down. One of them is exhibited in Edinburgh, which I have passed many times but never entered. Outside the building, several mirrors are installed that bend your reflection in weird shapes. These socks explore the path of...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
A friend brought some Mondim yarn from a trip to Lissabon qnd I knew two things: It had to become socks, and they had to include a lot of colourwork. The colours reminded me of the sea I live close to: green seaweed, dark blue sea, white foam. A swarm of fish surrounded by green weeds, lots of easy to remember colourwork and frequent colour cha...
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
John Oliver imagined the Scots thinking the only flower they might pick for their country would have to be one that could pierce an Englishman’s throat. While this totally is something to be expected of them, the actual beauty of a huge variety of purple flowering thistles in the dark pine woods of the Scottish Highlands should not be overlooked.

Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Having a horse can be challenging at times, as it forces you to go outside in every weather. At least against the cold, we as knitters can do something! This is where these mitts or halfgloves started. Knowing I would work at lot, stuffing hay into feeding nets, holding leading ropes, handling grain, I wanted my hands warm and cosy, but my fing...
Knitting: Cowl
Inspired by the brown and grey of a forest in winter, when all the leaves have fallen and been covered by snow, this is a close fitting, warm cowl with an easy stranded motif. Using sportweight yarn and rather large needles, it knits up quickly and makes a wonderful gift.

Update 23. October 2017: I have rewritten the instruction to hopefully make them a lot clearer as my experience has grown. I also finally included the instructions on how to make the thumb which have been missing so far.
