Tanja moved from Germany to Switzerland to be with her husband. In what seems like another life now she studied Chemistry at university. Miles and miles of stockinette or garter bore her to death most of the time. That’s why her patterns usually have lace, cables or color work and tutorials to go with them so every knitter can join the fun. When she‘s not knitting, she is playing the piano or on the computer, dreaming about moving to Scandinavia, reading, sewing, taking photos or cuddling her three cats.

Day 1

I’m pretty sure I’ve written this before about sewing (which I still can’t do), but the same seems to be true for spinning (and maybe even other things, who knows). If you don’t do it, you’re not going to learn it. And neither am I. So I’ve decided to challenge myself and spin every day …
