A walk in the woods, part 1

A day off and a long walk in to the woods was just what I needed. We found a new hidden gem outside the city. A 15 minute drive and you can make a walk between these beautiful giants. I love the foggy weather, which made everything look so magical and mysterious. Searching for mushrooms and collecting pretty leaves just like you did in primary school (remember?). Don't forget that great smell of fallen leaves and pines. And now I want to knit some more and prepare myself for Winter.

Dutch Design Week.

Again it has been much to quite here. I made plans so many times to update this space of mine on the web but it never came to that. It seems that so many people switched there blog to instagram, just like me. But here I am trying again. Hope somebody would still be interested.

Last weekend I had a date with sweet girl Marlou at the Dutch Design Week. We walked and talked a lot and felt very inspired by everything that we saw. Eating yummy pie at Piet Hein Eek and admiring Liekeland's beautiful print (the one at the bottem is now mine). Here are some details in pictures for you to see.

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.
