… the hat and the girl ❤

This hat was so much fun! The tassels are not only cute they also add weight to the hat and helps it to stay on her head.

As the Autumn is approaching, this cardigan was a must. It’s warm but still open for a breeze … The pockets are geniously constructed and really comfy – Looks cool, don’t you think?

Affordable Drops

I have a love and hate relationship to Garnstudio Drops Design. Maybe I’m a snob, but basically, I find Garnstudio very common – despite the fact that the quality of their yarn actually is quite good, and not to forget … payable(!) This is why I find myself buying their products again and again …

Drops has just reduced the prices for the whole range of their yarn, so now, you can get 50 grams of very soft fingering Baby Alpaca and Silk for only 36 DKR, not even 7 USD or one skein of worsted weight Wool and Alpaca for 4 USD. Yet another incentive to pick a skein of Drops.

My biggest problem when buying their yarn though, is the lack of inspiration when I have to choose between the colors! The Alpaca is allright, but for most of the other products the color range is rather dull and very predictable.

The blue in the picture is nice though …
