Cookies for a knit night

havrekakorWho can say no to some crunchy cookies? On our knit nights there’s always tea and some treats (if it’s not too hot outside 馃槈 ). Why not make some cookies, you can make them in advance and just store them in an airtight food container until serving.

Easy as pie

DSC_0672I wanted to knit a simple shawl and found this pattern (Easy as Pie聽by Marisa Fernandez) on Ravelry. But to knit you also need yarn, right? So I went to Copenhagen to buy some and I got really good advice on yarn shops from people in our knitting group. 聽Sommerfugeln (or the summer butterfly) is a garnshop not far from Str枚get, maybe a 15 minutes walk from the central station AND 聽they have a lot of things you want in that shop. Believe me or not, but I have only two ongoing projects right now so I can focus on finishing this shawl 馃檪

Bright Weekender bag: Day 0

I’ve always been a person who would rather make something than buy it. So when I recently came into possession of a sewing machine, I decided to make a big bag to carry my life around. I decided to use this pattern, but the fabric I already had didn’t quite fit. So I went back to our local craft store and got new supplies (among a LOT of other things. Let’s not talk about those). Here’s what I bought, which should be all the things I need to get started:

Supplies for a messenger bag

 

I’m going to get started today. Soon I’ll have some sort of process gallery up with the finished product!
