olympic blues


the city of vancouver is returning to it's old self after the 2010 winter olympics. what a party it was! even the people not so exited for the olympics admitted that the atmosphere was magical! the red knitted mittens were absolutely everywhere! can't wait for the paralympics starting on march 12!

In the mean time spring is not officially here, but the trees have blossoms and the narcissus are blooming. it truly smells like spring. that also means knitting with cotton and other spring-like materials starts. deciding what lace pattern for a new shawl is going to be the challenge. one of the red wood shawl pin is going to be responsible for the inspiration!

Imagine a day at work where you surround yourself with unique Swiss designed shawl pins, gorgeous buttons created in Holland, oh so precious yarns from the UK, and fabulous high quality felt and felting accessories, plus wonderfully, eclectic, full of life and spirit fibre artists. Knitting, felting and crochet it happens all in Pollika’s world. Just so you know English is my second language, here and there my fast thinking brain cells get confused and infected with my first language: Dutch. So, most posts are going to be written in ‘Denglish’. The will be accompanied by Lesley’s photography talent, that likes me to believe they will be clear, inspiring and bring a smile to your face!
