How to knit half fisherman´s rib


A short video tutorial on how to knit the half fisherman´s rib. We used this technique on our Bloom sweater. You can find the knitting kit here : Bloom sweater knitting kit

The technique creates a voluminous look for your knit, and looks like a mix between stockinette stitches and ribbing. Feels light and airy to wear!

The video is from the right side of the knit, row 1. Purl 1 stitch, knit one stitch from the row below (K1B), purl one, K1b until end of row. On row 2 you knit stockinette stitches across.

Repeat row 1 and 2 for as long as you like.

If you are knitting in the round you have to purl stitches on the wrong side/row 2.



New painted kitchen walls


Want some changes at home? Painting is a fast and fun way to give your walls or furniture a new look.

Our kitchen is white, and we used to have white walls. We were looking for a calm and colorful paint for the walls. After trying a blue-grey color, we were not quite happy, and landed on this beautiful peach color.

The color is supermatte, named “Blushing Peach”, from Jotun Lady. We painted 2 coats, and used a 3 liter can. Painted the floor list as well, but kept the top list in white, as the ceiling is also white.

On the kitchen-side we kept it simple with clean walls. We love to decorate with a lot of green plants.


All our chairs are old, from thriftshopping and secondhand.

The dark teak works well with the peach wallcolor.

On the opposite wall we have posters and family photos, and a DIY cabinet we made ourselves, painted in blue.

Lamp over kitchen table is from a dumpster outside a building area, another “upcycled” interior piece. From trash to treasure- we love it!

This cabinet is made from 2 old windows. Feet are from an old kitchen table. MDF board used in the back,

wooden boards on the sides and as shelves inside. The blue paint is a mix form different blues we had in the house.

We love plants and cactuses!

So many different shapes and personalities! Perfect way to add some color to your home

We also bought a light green color,also from Jotun Lady, that works well with the peach wallcolor.

The plan is to paint some of the diningchairs.

Ready for spring!



Lots of scrapyarn laying around? Wanting to make fun knitted toys and friends? Our new ocean friends knitting patterns are perfect! Includes three different patterns – two fishes and one octopus.

Use them for toys, interior decor, baby mobile or wallhanging.

As an example we made a wallhanging for kidsroom, or livingroom.

diy uro

You need:

Your cute knitted friends, thread, scizzors, a needle, wooden stick and some paint if you want to color the stick. We used acrylic paint on the side of this (available in most hobby shops).


Cut the threat in wanted lengths, and use a needle to pull in through the knitted toys. Tie it on top of the wooden stick, in different lengths. Use one thread for hanging, tie it on both side of the stick. Put a nail in the wall – and hang your beautiful DIY wallhanging on it!

A perfect one-of-a-kind art made by you! Perfect in the kidsrom or livingroom!


You can also put a “rattle soundmaker” inside and use for toys, for baby carriage or just interior details for example to hang on a door knob.

Old footstool made new with a cool dotty pillow case.


Bought an old footstool in teak from the markedplace for 50 nok. It was old and the fabric torn.

What a quickfix! This is how to:

Take off old nails underneath, fabric and foam. Repleace with new foam and the fabric of your choosing. Use something you have around the house like an old curtain, cloth or as I did, a pillow case. It is also quick to change if you want a new look.

Trekke om krakk

Cut the foam in size of the stool. The fabric needs to be a bit longer so you can attach it underneath. Use a nail gun and tighten the fabric as you go.

Ta- daa! A pretty little footstool – one of a kind !
