  • Heya!
Today I started experimenting with different patterns to find the right one for thin ngs I have in mind.
What do you think, would this look good on a scarf? (not these colours even though I actually like them together)
Otherwise it was a very slow Sunday here at my house, the hubby was out with the kids so I got some things done and could enjoy some silence after a night of indulgence and far to little sleep 💤💤💤
So for me it will be an early night and some more thinking on things to come 😉

Take care, Christina

  • Heya!
This one doesn't have a name yet. The little miss calls it "Häschen" which is German for little bunny.
I was lucky enough to be allowed to test the pattern for it 😍 (which is very nice btw).
For me it was a very nice opportunity to reduce some of my mini yarn balls and the tiny bits I had left from my little box of crochet projects - the little miss loves the many colours (and the wee one now wants one in blue).
I think you can get the pattern from next week in @meerwolle s shop (ad unpaid).
As I have finished something I am allowed to start something new am I not? 😂

How are your WIPs going?

Big hug,
Christina

  • Heya!

My little miss isn't really that little anymore... Very soon she will start school and I am very excited and a bit shocked how fast time is flying.
In a few weeks we will attend my cousins wedding and she already has a very cute dress and a matching shawl for it. I am glad it is not just pink and more pink but blue with colourful flowers (swipe to see the dress) and that you find the same colours in the shawl again.
I actually don't know how many things I made for my kids so far... But I always love it when they enjoy them 😍

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Take care,
Christina

  • Heya!
It is so warm here at the moment that refreshments feel so good (I could live on ice cream for example).
We were telling you about sustainable things we made before and here you see a part of my bathroom (handmade deodorant, my safety razor, some oil and my crocheted washcloth).
Just cleaning your face with water in the evenings feels so much better 😂
How are you coping with warm temperatures?

Take care,
Christina

The weather in Hamburg is amazing at the moment 😍 I love this beautiful city.
Today was the last day of my holidays but as we have a long weekend ahead of us and I don't have to work until Tuesday, work still feels way off...
So today was for getting my hair cut, riding my bike, some swimming in the local lake and some shopping. I don't just go ahead and buy things but try to just buy what I need (and I really needed a new pair of shorts - the others are too short for me and between 5 and 15 years old 😉) And tonight I will keep working on my cocoon shrug.

What are you doing this fine Friday?
Take care,
Christina

There are still 5 1/2 rows to go (one taking about 30-45min) and I am struggling with it... Finishing is never really easy. Starting always is. But I really really want to wear it, soon because it would be perfect for those nice summer evenings where you just need a little something to wrap around yourself.
I really want to make another one, too, but the next time with the right yarn and neddles size 7, not 4 😂
Now I enjoy myself on the balcony and maybe get another row done... How are you finishing things??? Are you better at breezing through? 
Take care,
Christina

  • Heya!
Sometimes you need to take the things you love outside to make you feel special.
A few days ago it was still gloomy and raining a bit but we went to the seaside anyways.
I love the ocean and the fresh air so for me it doesn't matter what weather is around me.
I am still very happy with my jumper and started with another version that is a bit more suitable for warmer weather (today was a T-Shirt and shorts kind of day) but it will take some time.
At least the big chunk of trial and error I had with this one is already done and I will (probably) not have to undo half of it (crossmyfingers).
I hope you have a great weekend!
Take care,
Christina

After meeting up with the girls today in a very British setting (I loved that wallpaper) I am actually a bit further along on my new sweater... But - as always - I did not write down what I am doing... So this will be a no-pattern wip as well... 😂 Typically me.

How do you work with new ideas in your head? Are you planning and writing things down or are you working it freely without any plan at all?

I am going to keep crocheting now and have some me time with Netflix 😉

Take care,
Christina

As you can see I am still not done with my #cocoonsweater... But every row takes me forever right now and I just measured and found out that I still need 10cm more, which equals 11 rows... 😂
But I am on holiday for the next two weeks and I really want to have it finished by then!
Luckily Sarah dyed more than just two balls of that gorgeous beige colour so I have some left.
But my hands are itching to really start something new, there are so many ideas in my head that I want to try out. Do you know that feeling? So much to try out, so little time... 😉

I hope you are well, I am enjoying my time off with some crochet time and audio books 😊
Take care,
Christina

  • Heya!

Do you have favorite tools for your different projects? Here are some of my go-to things from chaotic bag of all things I might (or might not) need.
Even though I rather crochet than knit I have sooo many knitting needles - most of them wooden. I do not like the sound metallic needles make while knitting 😂
I love wooden crochet hooks as well but one of my favorite ones is the green and white one you see in the picture (it's from addi and I bought it myself years ago, as I did the others).
Ever so often I see beautiful crochet hooks and want to buy them but every time I think "I have enough!" but they do vanish in my project bags and I am always missing a hook size 4 😂 always...
What are your favorites? And do they inspire you to make new things?

Take care,
Christina

  • Heya!
This weekend was a family weekend for me, I was visiting my parents and as the kids and I were going by train I did not take any crocheting with me... (crazy, I know, it just didn't fit anymore).
So what I am showing you today is a source of inspiration for me: things in my grandma's house.
I did mention her before and she just turned 93 and isn't able to crochet anymore (because of her eyesight) but has all the lovely things in her home.
The picture above is of the things I found on her coffee table.
When you swipe you can see her sitting with a spinning wheel, about 35 years ago - I never actually realized she would be a good teacher for spinning for me until yesterday. Sadly there are 400 km between us so learning by doing is my kind of thing.

Do you have people in your family that inspire you to be crafty?

Take care,
Christina

Not much progress to show you on my #cocoonsweater, but I will get there eventually 😂
Sometimes life just runs full speed ahead and you don't have time to stop and do the more enjoyable things. That's what happened to me during the last few weeks. And today it kind of climaxed so I am done and feel bone tired.
What makes me extremely happy though is my new cute friend: the little alpaca my hubby bought me (isn't it cute?) So tonight I will enjoy some me time and calm down to refill my batteries.

What helps you in stressful times?

Take care,
Christina

Today was Katharina and my first try at spinning wool... And it was hard - very hard. Might be the spinning wheel or me not being able to do so many things at once without practice...
Katharina was better at it than me (she will keep practicing).
So this is her work as well and we had three little ones running around us as well.
It was a wonderful afternoon today.

What did you do today?
Take care,
Christina

The weather is getting better here in Hamburg and I actually had time to sit on my balcony today. I really enjoy crocheting there, it is one of my favorite spots in spring and autumn especially. 
When you Swipe you see my little apple tree, which is in bloom now 😍
I am still working on my #cocoonsweater but not so much further. I love the colours together... And it feels like a little blanket on my knees 😂

I hope you have a great weekend!
