We knitted 4 soulful celebs!

About 2 years ago we accepted an order from Dutch fashion designer Edgar Stuurman to knit 2 "seventies style" cardigans that he had designed. They were to be worn in a soul music spectacle called "Big Black and Beautiful": Three FABULOUS ladies singing all those well known soul hits, in theatres all over Holland! Also appearing was a Dutch actor called Hajo Bruins and he was to wear these cardigans. I was very proud we got this assignment and even more proud to show the final result!
(Thanx for the Photo, Rocq-e !!) For more info on this show see www.bbb-onlinesite.com

José's Noro Creation.

José is one of our regular and fabulous customers. She took a Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton Noro pattern with Silk Garden and Iro and transformed it into this beautiful creation using two colours of Kureyon. I think it is a piece of art!

Classy Colourful Noro!

This lady is one of our valued regular customers. Some time ago she bought some skeins "Iro" from Noro. She came in our shop and showed her fabulous cardigan, we just loved it! She was very happy with it and came in for some more Noro as you can see!

Martine's summer holiday in Finnish Lapland.

Knitting away in front of a log cabin in Finnish Lapland! How cool is that? Martine (my highly valued and ueberstylish collegue) loves Finland. Especially Finnish Lapland. She also loves to knit, and has a taste for the coolest knits and yarns. Many of our in-house designs are from her hand. With her family she went on a summer holiday to this Nordic country. Normally they go in winter and enjoy the arctic winter, dog sled tours and so on.. How COOL is that!!!
