The Postman rings twice and.....Humanus is here!!!!

I have been searching for this spinning wheel for so long!!! Humanus, made in Switzerland. Truly expensiv but as I have heard over an over one of the best. Very easy to use. I'll try it and tell you more about it. Found it in for little money. Was bought in 1982 but looks pefect and as I can see it works.

If everything goes well I'be selling my ashford traditional, which is also quite fine but I do not have enought space for two so... watch out.


I have been on this Kaffee Fasset for an eternity. I'm making it for my husband who actualy chose the most dificult model for men in "Kaffe Knits again". I will not do the back like the front, it will be a sourprise for all of you, just wait.


A friend is expecting a baby due for February, not much time left and if you consider that most of my girfriends are over 40 the chance I'll get to knit baby things are getting smaller and smalller so let's do it right I thoght and grabed my Zimmerman evergreen.

Waiting for the Monsoon

For the ones interested in the slow clothes movement, this is a quite good podcast.
The crafters revival is coming and also increesing respect for all handmade. I have observed that slowly the people get to understand that crafters do not need to be compared with the industy and are no longer seen as a cheap and unefficient option to the industrial production. Crafts are slow because they are thoghtful. It sometimes needs slowliness to get the best out of something.

The cat, the wool, and the pan

Our cat seams to love wool. This was alpaca, handspun. I bought it from chilean highland indians.

I had to wait until Nube got tired and finally went away for his nap. After that I couldn't find him anymore. Thought he might be ofended but then I found him sitting very happy in one of the kitchen cabins.

Stegosaurus Knitting

Adapted from a design from Lucinda Guy I made this Stego for my 5 year old Elias. He adores it ever since. Was not very difficult but he's got quite a big head so I had to redo the neckpart.
