Welcome on board



Tini is again knitting like crazy (thus no time to sew or energy to sew)
She is not surprisingly still working on “it cannot fail to please” from ” A stitch in time Vol 1″ by Susan Crawford and Jane Waller.
Yarn: Mystery yarn without label but has Bamboo in it.

She has finished a pair of vanilla socks, using the crystal heel from the crystal socklets by Lynn DT Hershberger. The yarn used is “Mayflower Strömpegarn” a Danish yarn.

More exiting is her newest “cowl” called Zuzus petals by Carina Spencer. A great pattern for using up small amounts of yarn. The yarn Tini used for her version is handspun Merino, dyed by Lollipop yarns. Now that she “got” how the pattern works, she cast on another one for a friends birthday (yarn Online 157 Tessa, overdyed by her).

Since it seems Tini has no yarn in her stash, she started a pair of vanilla socks using leftover sock yarn and the Blender Socks recipe by Heather Sebastian for blending in colours and the socks are SO much fun. Plus she will be able to delete 3 stash entries once the socks are done. Whoo Hoo!

Tini was also fortunate enough to do an interview with Martina Behm for her German podcast.


All sewing that has too place at chez Tini has been work on the 1973 Kwik Sew Jeans pattern No.  401 or so.

Oh wait, there have been leather slippers of course and there’s not much leather left. Whoo hoo again!

Maria has sewn tons of samples esp. for Jeans and has developed a new design, that will be published soon called “Tuesday night skirt”. She participates in me made may again.

For a class Maria has made a tube top.

It is Indie Sewing month and there are 4 big SAL, so head over and read about your chance to win cool prizes. And there’s a great interview with Maria at Sindbad and Sailor.
