This is a great pattern. Looks complicated but is not. Pick a lovely yarn and settle in to make a garment you will love. Practical and stylish!

I love this designer's wonderfully creative mind! Such interesting patterns you won't find elsewhere. Marleen is wonderful to work with...answering any questions you might have before placing your order. Check out her innovative creations!

I am enjoying making this capelet. The pattern is easy to memorize. Marleen taught me a new stitch. She responded quickly to my convos before & after purchase. Thank you for your excellent customer service.

About

Searching for a box of extra time....

I started designing knitwear and writing patterns in 2005, it first was a way of doing something I love and be a stay at home mom, but soon the business started to grow, my designs were published in knitting magazines and by 2010 I was selling at all the mayor trunkshows, selling printed patterns and my own brand of hand dyed yarns.
I still don't know how I managed to organise the household and the business...

Then real life kicked in...

Since 2013 I' recovering from a burnout and depression, I couldn't knit or crochet or do anything creative at that time. Around the same time I was diagnosed with autism and add. Not a suprise by the way, all 3 kids are on the spectrum and they needed to get it from someone ;)
So now I'm spending time in our community to raise autism awareness, special education and youthcare.

I'm very glad I'm able to be creative again, and this time no pressure, that's the main reason I don't do many custom orders and everything in my shop is ready to ship.

Now everyday is a day to do what I enjoy most: create...
Every piece you find in my shop is made by me with love and me having fun creating it for you.
