I bought it on amazon.co.uk and I'm satisfied. Good number of menswear patterns, for once I'm tempted to say, but that is my experience with Rowan. Some interesting accessory patterns too. Very nice fairisle throw by Martin Storey... So, this... Continue reading

Hej K.M., thank you for your comment. This one was very official, even had get my statement read aloud to me. Which was actually rather awkward as I hate being the focus of attention in such situations. I love being front-and-centre with stuff I do well, like knitting or spinning. I demand it from my pupils when I teach. But here, it felt wrong. Ah well, it's done now.

Been a bit quiet again lately, this time for a reason. I'm trained as an engineer, so under Danish law I'm allowed to teach at technical high schools. However, within two years of employment I have to start the so-called... Continue reading

I'm finally learning to recognize some of all those small signs my subconscious leaves when I'm getting stressed. Several of them right now, as there's a lot on my plate. So I'll still be posting, but with a bit more... Continue reading
