Hello my lovelies…I am back home! Well, I have been back for a few days, working hard on some long overdue changes to this, my creative space in cyberland…

The biggest change is the way I sell all those lovely Made with Loops goodies. Everything will now be sold directly via my brand new Etsy shop. I used to have all sorts of problems selling patterns via this blog. It was often very challenging to sort out all those technical issues, hopefully everything will run smoothly from now…fingers crossed.


As well as my patterns, you can find other lovely things in this new little Bazar of mine…

Yarn 1

…it’s a work in progress, so please be gentle and patient with me. There are various links on here for you to get to the Bazar directly, one is in the Menu bar at the top, and then there are a couple of links in the sidebar. Whichever way you prefer, I hope you will take a little look and let me know what you think, any requests are also very welcome.

Opening the Made with Loops Bazar also gave me the chance to have a little overall re-vamp of the blog, and I hope you like what I have done?

The other exciting bit of news I have to share: I have just officially launched the Sorbetto Shawl in Germany.

This is a co-production with my fabulously inspiring friend Claudia of Wollsin (www.wollsin.de). Claudia is the sort of friend who will enthusiastically involve herself in a creative idea and come up with the most amazing colour ways to support this. A master dyer and seller of Isager Yarns, she has come up with some fabulous colour combinations for the Sorbetto Shawl, which together with the pattern will be sold as a Shawl Kit via her website.

Should you not wish to purchase a whole kit, the pattern for the shawl is available in German and English at the Made with Loops Bazar.

I am really excited about this launch and hope Sorbetto will be loved on the German speaking market just as much as here.

There will be a few more bits of news in the coming few posts, so watch this space.

For today…I leave you with (from left to right):

Rosamunde – Violetta – Im Wald – Sommerrose – Strawberry

  • Thank you my dear Christine, I really am very excited to have my Sorbetto launched in Germany…fingers crossed it will do well xx

  • Beautiful, Heike. Many good wishes for your Etsy venture, and congratulations on the Sorbetto kit! If I didn’t have about 150 things to knit up in my cupboard, I would get one for myself…

  • Thank you Marianne, that means a lot to me. I had been thinking about the Etsy shop for a while, and as I was having more and more problems running a shopping cart behind the scenes of my blog, decided it was time to do something about it.
    I set it all up over the last few weeks and thought it would be good to announce it with the launch of Sorbetto in Germany.
    Fingers crossed that it will be a success.
    You must be getting excited about Saturday…so wish I could be at the launch. Have fun, lots of love Heike xx
