Where To Get Those Crazy Big Knitting Needles Or Crochet Hooks??

13 12 2015 DIY

Well - this is a question I get asked a lot... 

Sometimes my customers are a little dissapointed that I do not sell big needles in my DaWanda shop along with the wool.

I did think about offering them but it would add just another piece to my business and to the already thousand things that come with it and that I need to take care of.

It's amazing what it takes to run a little business smooth and successful - if you are self employed you can relate... 

And since there are already great shops offering a wide variety of big knitting needles and crochet hooks I rather link to those.

My favorites are Knit Affair who offers beautiful handmade needles handmade in Berlin from sustainable wood - on the second picture you can see their straight 20mm knitting needles - and Handgefertigt-Berlin, who offers needles and hooks up to size 30mm.

That cool little bag on the last picture is from Dawanda Shop moon.moon and the feather print is from the danish Etsy Shop The Clay Play.

Happy Holidays,


Our Tropical Bathroom

02 07 2015 DIY

Well - it's not super tropical but hey, we have a Yucca palm tree and a pineapple rug and an elephant at the wall.

AND a hammock on the balcony in front of the bathroom! :)

Beside this, the bathroom is just simple and funktional.

The mirror cabinets are from Ikea and each of us four has one half of a cabinet to fill with stuff needed.

That way everything stays pretty organized and the counter is decluttered and easy to clean. 

The industrial light is from HKLiving and I crocheted the pineapple rug with a pattern by Wood&Wool Stool.

I modified the pattern slightly because I did not have enough fabric yarn.

The giant elephant (it is an entire elephant - I just wasn't able to get all of it on the picture!) and its small feathered friends are wall tattoos from KEK Amsterdam .

I love them and always have to smile when looking at them.
