I had to restrain myself not to buy this adorable crooked kitchen cabinet. It's about 50 cm high but I really wouldn't know where to put it. There is no backboard 1 drawer missing and some chips of others pieces of glass missing as well. But for just 10 euros someone is going to be very happy with this pink delight  at #terredeshommes #leiden . . . #kringloopgeluk #whatididntbuy #pinkvintage #candyminimal #vintagelove #vintagekitchen #pink #thriftshop

#Repost @missminoes_destash      Hi all @missminoes_destash is my new account on which I will share my #destash mostly yarn and some fabric.  The Why: after my lumpectomy 15 months ago I have not been able to knit due to ongoing shoulder pain. I don't know how long it will take until I have recovered enough to pick up knitting again. But even then making custom orders will be too much a strain for the foreseeable future. I am not getting rid of all my yarn (yet)  but a destash is necessary…

"When in doubt wash" (Jennie - Paul Gallico) I love to see how Dita is a knot of paws when she's cleaning herself. It was a challenge to figure out whether I was drawing a front leg or a back leg.

Slip stitch patterns

A Treasury of Slip Stitch Patterns by Caroline Nelson Elaine Cater. Slip Stitch is one of the most interesting stitches that can be created on Knitting Machines. Through a little experimentation, the variety of effects obtainable seems almost endless.
