My day could not be better today... My first order of Colinette yarns arrived! We put the yarns up in the Ikea roomdividers I bought last week and I think they look absolutely stunning and are SO inspiring! You just wanna grab them!

Colinette Perugino Throw

This is a "Perugino Throw" yarnkit I brought as a sample back from Colinette in Wales to ask our customers what they thought about it. My collegue Martine knitted it and I think it looks fandabbydozy! We now sell the kit in 3 colour schemes!

Crochet poncho inspired by Missoni.

I am kind of proud of this one. I took so many different colours and threads (three at a time) and tried to make a stunning poncho with a colourpalette a la Missoni. This Italian fashion house is one of my biggest sources of inspiration. Their use of colour is unique in the world and I am in great awe of them. Grazie!

Crazy Crocheted Bag #2

Another attempt to "crochet-pimp" a bag. This is a mailbag model, I just crocheted a granny square on a 15 mm crochet hook and had fun with the colours, then sewed it on a army look bag. Handwash only!

It was a great succes, organised by two determined ladies, there was a crowd of 44 people! We had great fun, looking forward to the next night!
