We are still blessed with amazing fall weather in northern Germany.

This past weekend we had temperatures up to 20 Degrees!

The kids are on fall break and we will go to Paris for a few days.

If you like, please follow along on my Instagram.

More MacroMonday always here.

Happy Day,

Things You Don't Know About Me, Upcoming Plans And A Winner

22 10 2014

... or you probably don't know about me.

Because I still don't have a proper 'About' page!

I don't know...just hope, I will surprise myself at some point and just get it done.

While I am still busy as a bee working in my jewelry/wool studio, you can - if you like - read a bit more about me over at other places:

&Magazine interviewed and featured me in their Blogscreen series (in german) and at the Roest Haakt Blog I share my favorite five yarns to work with (in english).

Super chunky hat

Upcoming DIY Plans:

I finally finally want to share tips on how to make a mega thick blanket like this one I knitted back in January and February.

Plus I developed an easy way to felt larger amounts of felt-ropes. Very excited about that and I am planing to write down the process in an e-book.

And now to my recent Give Away:

First let me say that I am totally blown away by your support! I would have never ever thought I will make it to the top of the newcomer finalists for the upcoming Designachten show in my neighbor city since two other finalists had a head start of me and at first it seemed pretty hopeless that I would be able to catch up.

But thanks to YOU I did and that's so awesome. One reader wrote to me that she forced all her work colleagues to vote for me :-)

Out of the 44 (1 was via e-mail) comment entries random.org picked no.1(!) as the winner of a knitted hat. Congratulations!!!

And again thanks so much to everybody who voted for me! 

Happy Day,

Anette
