whats coming to etsy…

I know i’ve been talking about getting things on etsy and nothing has come of it, but i’ve just been so incredibly busy. Having said that i can finally show most of what is going up on Etsy when i find the time to load it. I’m also currently working on the Troldmand sweater but theres still a sleeve and the rest of the body to go. Anyway, you can check out my mini autumn collection below.
Let me know what you think!

the grønland sweater

Hey folks and a happy Saturday! !
I’ve been consumed in my knitting over the last weeks. I only wanted to  learn to knit so i could make sweaters and socks, that was the whole point and i felt like giving up so many times, but Jack told me to keep at it. So after years of knitting random pointless things, swearing and tearing my hair out — i’ve finally arrived at my goal. And thus its no surprise that i’ve been living with my needles full of new projects recently. This is the grønland sweater knitted with 100% roving yarn in ice and stone — my 3rd sweater this year! And i’m pretty excited because its my first real yoke sweater! It’s knitted from the bottom and upwards. I made up the pattern myself. What do you think?



new horizons

Has it really been five days since i wrote my last post?
Sheesh — well as you might know from my Insta-stories i’ve been really sick, and Jack too. Thankfully we’re almost back to normal and i’ve managed to catch up on my knitting. Finally the first sweater is finished and ready to be posted on etsy once i get some pictures of it. I love making things and being creative but realistically i can’t wear everything i make because that would be insane. I don’t like having a lot of belongings and clothes. I’m always trying to donate what i don’t use or need. Anyway i figured posting some things to sell on Etsy and getting a bit of extra money here and there would be a fun venture. I tried using the platform before, as some of you may recall, and sold a few items but i’ll try my luck again now that i have a bit more of an idea what i’m doing and i have more confidence in what i’m making. I’ll only be making Sweaters, socks + the occasional scarf when i fancy. I think it’ll be interesting to see how it turns out.
Anyway, i just wanted to update you all and let you know i’m still keeping on. I’m planning on making a youtube video pretty soon — not sure if its a vlog or what, but i have it in my brain i just need that last little push. 

Happy Monday !

I just purchased some new tags for my sweaters and i’m in love with the little added detail.
A buffalo pillow i made for our big leather chair.
The first sweater that will be going on my etsy in the next week or two! I’m currently softening it up ready to be worn!
Pimples and sweaters.

my sweater

I wanted to share some pictures of the sweater i recently finished. I’m so pleased with it.  The colours and pattern are perfect. It wasn’t easy just because it could become quite tedious and it sucked when you messed up a single stitch 10 rows ago, but it was very much worth it. It’s made from alpaca wool which means its ridiculously soft — one day when i can afford it i will make a sweater of bison wool. That will definitely warm my cockles out on the plains by the fireside.
This was part of my self-therapy.
This is my Basil Sweater.

I can’t get over how LONG my hair is now.

This pendant is the Native sign for “raven,” my spirit animal.
They follow me wherever i go — and i always see two, Huginn & Muninn.
Guess they’re watching over me to bring news back to the big guy with one eye.

Jack gave me this necklace the first time i came to America and i haven’t been without it since. He has the other half which is the native sign for eagle. Together they make a heart.
