Warm and Cosy Knits, 100% Handmade by Ineke Visser from Heins Home
Some people don't like Autumn, but I love it. Of course the wet and windy weather is not always pleasant, but nature can be so pretty with its changing colours. How wonderfully refreshing to go for a nice walk (if the weather allows it), only to subsequently come home, light the fire, make a nice drink and snuggle up on the sofa with a warm, cosy wool blanket. I don't mind at all.
In fact, I'd love to snuggle up under one of Ineke Visser's chunky knitted plaids from Heins Home. I came across her via Suhka Amsterdam, a bit of a quirky 'department store' in the middle of Amsterdam with tons of inspiring design. They sell amongst others Ineke's gorgeous home accessories, an amazing range of crochet stools, knitted plaids, cushions, and really cool 'bottle warmers', all entirely handmade (in her own living room!) from mostly leftover yarns.

I'm someone who loves materials and textures, so the above examples are right up my street! Doesn't that proof that crochet and knitting don't have to be old-fashioned and for grannies, but actually can be really cool??
Ineke's husband is a carpenter and together they make a rather creative team, so it doesn't come as a surprise that they live in a beautifully decorated home, that I find really inspiring. I love the combination of rustic and design, so I simply had to share these pictures with you too!

So are you convinced yet by Ineke's crochet and knits yet? What do you think of her style? Her website translates into English, but I think you can only buy in Euro's from her. Perhaps if you drop her or Suhka Amsterdam an email, they may be able to send any items abroad.
Lots of love,
