This time I will start with a story about why this creature was brought to light 🙂

Chunkeanie and its many faces


, , , , ,


I admit at once – this hat (model, color and yarn) was chosen by my hubby for himself. But what he didn’t know was that this exact color to me is like a magnet and I am just waiting for a perfect moment to CO with it 😀

I started adding pompoms  while knitting  – and the hat was like new with each new one!

My hubby didn’t want one, but he agreed to have it added for the photo shoot, and now I am not sure he is going to get it back 😀 The hat I mean…



Polar Bear pullover pattern is now available


Hey fellow Knitters,

today I have great news – my Polar Bear pullover pattern is now available on Ravelry. It has lived through my writing and re-writing it,  survived the sharp eye of the tech editor and now is eager to be knitted and warm somebody up 🙂 And guess what? You can get it with 20% off the regular price until the end this Sunday – 23:59 (UTC +02:00).

And the story how this fuzzy cutie was born can be found here 🙂



20160827_135612I might be repeating myself, but socks are something I simply have to knit when the time comes. Autumn is approaching and soon my not so little anymore prince will be splashing around after rain and exploring damp forests with his rubber boots on. And as the temperature gets nearer to the zero (Celsius) home knit socks is a big advantage! In fact, last year he went on with his rubber boots and socks even with a little bit below zero (Celsius), and only got into his snow boots when it was really really cold, or – as the name suggests – after the snow fell.

So here I am, getting ready for Winter. I thought I was making these socks with some room for growing feet, but looks like I will have to make a larger pair, as these are tight fit now. And I’m talking about width, not foot length which is easily adjustable 😀 I will have to CO more…

You might suggest buying a pair at the store and getting on to some more pleasant (for me) knits. But those store-bought socks just doesn’t make it right. Besides, while knitting my little boy manages to entertain me. E.g., I put those sock with needles in them to measure how much do I need to knit for foot and ask him whether he likes it. “Yes, very much, especially the spikes. Please, leave them in”. Do I need to tell You the spikes are my 2.5 mm sharp DPNs? 😀 Luckily we came to an agreement for removing those spikes after all…

So that’s my day-to-day knits while waiting for the most colorful season of the year. And a hat, fingerless mitts are queued, and definitely something else will pop up. And who says I’m not working on something for myself? Oh, and my mother already has introduced me to her Christmas wishes 😀 How many WIPS do You usually have going on?
