Still plenty of renovation is going on in the house. We choose to work instead of taking a holiday with good things as result (a first room is finally finnished, hooray!). And we played tourist in our own country now and then. Even though we are so small, there are many hidden gems, like this one.

Maria | Headband AW15/16

Here it is - a new collection for Autumn and Winter.

It took a while to figere it all out, find the right stitch, the right fiber and so on... but I'm so glad everyhting worked out in the end.

Headbands to keep your ears warm when the first cold strikes us. I feel Autumn already in the air and the leaves are already changing here and there. Hand knit and hand worked with pure lambswool in a delicate lace pattern.

Named after one of my grandmothers. The woman who gave me my love for knitting. Both love to make knits to take care of us in Autumn and Winter. A tradition that I like to give to you!

Availability is always very limited since I only knit with the best fiber I can get my greedy yarn hands on.

Find them online in both the shop and Etsy.

One of my favorite places to go lies just outside the city center. While we are counting our last days of our 'renovation' vacation it's the perfect place to relax after a whole day of sanding and painting.

Winter knits in Summer.

I'm one of those that can't stop knitting. Even with the heatwave from a week ago you will still find me working with needles and wool. Here are a couple of personal knits I finnished these last weeks/months. All in an unintentional neutral color palette.

KNOP, an interesting quick and modern knit
Henriette from Alice Hammer, I'm a big fan of all her patterns
• Puff clutch, my own design. I made this one for a wedding and I'm in love with the alpaca wool in combination with the leather.
Maybe I make this in to a small collection one day.
Textured Shawl, never thought I would ever knit a shawl but this was a fun knit with a nice texture.

I'm always on the look for modern temporary knits so if you have some tips for me please share. And you? Do you like knitting in Summer or are working on a Summer-project?
