Looking up from my knitting needles


It has been a little over 2 years since I first picked up knitting. I vividly remember my very first yarn I bought and I wrote about it way back when I just had started this blog. I was so captivated by yarn and knitting and soon enough I decided that I wanted to demistify this mesmerizing craft. And so I did... Over the past 2 years I have absorbed knitting knowledge like a thirsty sponge. I found myself buying all kinds of yarns, needles, notions, patterns and books... so many books! I have been extremely focused on knitting and all there was to learn about knitting and yarn. Sure enough, several months after I learned how to knit I even knitted my own little fingerless gloves. And soon after that, I started to write out my little glove patterns. books glove plethora BW3 I have explored lace knitting, sock knitting, sweater knitting, intarsia and cables. firstbookmodernlace easy cruising heelflap1 Lana Grossa Royal Tweed Heck, I even started to design and write my own sweater patterns... Finished Choli Choosing Venezia Cascade Worsted Allthough knitting still is my passion and absolutely #1 craft, I find myself pulled towards some other beautiful crafts out there. You may have noticed that at times, I buy fabrics and sewing patterns: Vintage Patterns1 Dogwood Japanese Fabric And as of late, I am very much drawn to paper... that looks like fabric. Inspiring Paper Cutting out Shapes2 Uh-oh... I am in deep deep trouble... I can already see a paper stash and a fabric stash growing in my yarnroom! What is a crafty gal to do, eh? Without exactly knowing where this all is leading to, I can say this with certainty: all of these mediums, yarn, fiber, fabric and paper make me happy. It truly lifts my spirits when I set eyes on these wonderful, wonderful materials. And I am going to focus on that what makes me happy and I am going to pursue that what ignites passion within me. One last thing: Knitting still is my number one passion and always will be. It is just, that lately, I have been looking up from my knitting needles and I have noticed that there is so much more out there... camelia Thank you for reading and untill the next entry!

Life is so short, enjoy everything while you can !
Er is toch niets mee als je doet wat je veel voldoening geeft, het zijn tenslotte ongevaarlijke hobby's ! Hoewel ....?

I want to get into sewing,

I want to get into sewing, but I don't have any good fabric stores near me. =( I'm interested in seeing what you produce.
