xs woodwoolstool

xs woodwoolstool

A shiny stool for the little ones, how cute...

The xs stool is one of the cool crochet projects, we make during the COOL CROCHET WORKSHOP in Marrakech. It's called the suitcase size stool, because you can bring it back home in your suitcase.

This golden mini cover I've made during the workshop in May and the xs stool is now for sale in my E T S Y shop.

d.i.y. handmade luxe looped cardigan

wood & wooly cardigan met mouwen woodwoolstool wooly cardigan rotterdam maas[bike]tunnel rotterdam 019

The handmade crochet luxe looped cardigan you can make yourself.

You can download the pattern in my Etsy shop.

Yesterday I came across a photo on the instagram account of Anthropologie...

A loopy cardigan that looks a lot like my wooly cardigan.
So I went to the Anthropologie webshop to have a closer look;

a hand-knit luxe looped cardigan for $580.00?!

I did not believe my eyes...

I made a loopy cardigan some years ago, even made some for others and after a lot of request I wrote the pattern.

You can make the luxe cardigan yourself and save some money for a nice city trip.
Haha, why don't you join one of the Cool Crochet workshop in Marrakech next year and I can show you how to work the loop stitch...

If you think the cardigan is too fluffy you can also wear it inside out. Here's a l i n k to an old 'inside out' blogpost from 2013.

I wear mine a lot and it is still one of my favorite cardigans. I always get a lot of compliments and nice comments when I wear it.

into the woods

Autumn walk in the woods.

After a long summer (early April to mid-October, because of my workshop travels to Marrakech), I appreciate the autumn weather.

If only for the stunning yellow ginkgo tree in the frontyard.
And for the winter wardrobe from the attic, your own 'old collection' suddenly seems new again; boots, cardigans (my favorites), sweaters, boots, warm winter coats...

For the time being, I'm still enjoying the season, knowing that soon I will be done with it.
