As I have already mentioned in my latest post, a couple weeks ago we dropped our apartment to the marked and sold it. Our buyer asked us to move out in three weeks, so we didn't have enough time to find the next home. We got packed our stuff as quickly as a wink and moved to my parents's house.
We spent the last few weeks with intensive home searching. I guess I spent at least houndred hours on the web browsing houses. We also took a few house tours and this week we made a deal for our new home.  We still have to wait two or three months to move in, but feel overjoyed about the house!
The house needs some basic renovation work and I hope that a few things can be done by our hands as well. Anyway I love this new chapter of our life! All those hours spent with planning and dreaming spice up our relationship. It is such a huge step for us. 

I don't knit too much lately, I have a bigger project on my bedside. I have started working on this cardigan: Lace Back Hoodie by Mari Tobita. I had been eyeing this beautiful pattern from a while, but found it too challenging. Now I feel the ability to complete it. I am just very slow. I made a few major modifications on the pattern: I work in one piece from top down and want to get a more fitted garmet. 

I hope that in next few weeks while waiting to get the keys, I will have a little time to knit, share and now I start digging for the best DIY project ideas around the house. 


  1. Good luck Hanni !!!!!

    Nice new project!

Simple beret crochet pattern

Do you know my Little Red Riding Hood Beret? I am releasing the new version of the original pattern. It is simplified, but a little bit tighter than the sample one was. The first sample of this hat has been made with 3.5 mm hook and DK weight yarn, the number of stitches were divisible by 16. This version is simplier. I used 4.00 mm (G hook) and worsted weight yarn for a fitted looking, the number of stitches is divisible by 12. 

Here is the newly made simplier version of this beret. This time in creamy peach color:

Difficulty level: easy – for beginners too (ch, dc, basic decreasing and increasing technics) Finished measurements: fits to an average women’s head
•worsted weight yarn (approx. one smaller ball)
•crochet hook G/ 4.00 mm
•stitch marker (if you feel more comfortable with it)
•tapestry needle (to weave the ends)

Abbreviations: ch  chain dc double crochet dc2tog  decreasing two stitches with double crochet sl st 

Crochet purse for the Summer

Yippie, I have made my very first summer purse! Okay, actually it is not a new project,  a couple weeks ago you could already see some WIP pictures of it, but on the past weeks I was obsessed with sewing. That's why I deferred publication.
So time to show you one of my favourite crochet object. It is finally something for myself!! After several baby hats and simple amirgurumis for my family, I made a bag for myself... just for fun... You probably know what does it mean: when your family and friends discover 'your talent',  you don't have time to create just for yourself.

You could have already seen these squares and here where I promised, that I would make a bag from it!  So I kept my promise. It wasn't easy to turn the granny into a bag (or bag-like) shape. After several tryings with flowers and different shapes I found the simple chain loops the easiest way to turn the square into a bag.
It is not a big purse, I am sure that I won't take it for shopping, but…

Crochet Frog Applique {pattern}

A few months ago my cousin sent me a picture from a pair of baby shoes with frog applique, that she wanted for Lili. I made a quick google search for a pattern, but didn't find any. So I tried to figure out how to crochet the applique. I must confess, that the shoes are still not ready, because the first try turned out too small for Lili's feet. And now as she is learning to walk, she needs for professional shoes. So I will use these frogs later for another project. If you have any tip what should I make with them, share with me!

Materials:  - a few yards of DK weight yarn (or any weight by your choice) in green, white and red
Tools & notions: - G / 4.00 mm hook - safety eyes
- needles
