Just a short and sweet post, as I am excited to tell you I finished knitting another sweater! This is the Toulouse Pullover from the Knitscene winter 2012 edition. I fell in love with the style while browsing through my sister's copy of the magazine, so I decided I had to make it. One E-magazine…

Remember this post? No? I don´t blame you, it´s been over a year. BUT I´ve finally finished my plaid half-circle skirt! That´s why I call it a FFO – a Finally Finished Project. The irony here is that making a circle skirt really doesn´t take a lot of time. But you know, winter came and…

Some progress

I’ve been kind of busy the last couple of weeks, with little time for sewing. I took some time this morning, though, to make a little case for my knitting stuff, like stitch markers, pens and such. This is the result: I’ll be back with more exciting projects as soon as my workload is under…

Keeping it cozy.

A backlog of unblogged craftiness is rapidly increasing here at Casa delfinelise. I have another pair of corduroys to show you, I’ve nearly finished a coat, and I have ventured into the magical world of shiva sticks, all without sharing it with you! What I have been most occupied with though, is knitting. I have…

Happiness is…

First of all: Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my birthday! They all made me smile when I read them. 🙂 I am happy. I am beyond happy.  Thrilled! And excited! Is it because Me-Made-June is drawing closer? Although that will be a lot of fun, that is not the main…

Off to the fair!

I am so sorry for the recent radio silence, but after a week of illness always comes a week of crazy catching up (and in this case an exam as well). But. Last Saturday, I managed to get out of the house, jump on the commute and head for Stockholm International Fair and the biannual Syfestivalen.…
