Magic basket

Reading According to Matt yesterday morning, I realized I had a great bag as well : it is only used when I go the gym (that is to say not so often these days...Hum). So, one second later my bag was given a new but vital task : be the gardian of my projects! And as I'm going away for a few days, I REALLY need a big enough guy to hold all the stuff I can't possibly do without (ripple#2 -bad news about this one, but I'll evoke this later... - a new pair of socks to cast, my big scarf that needs to be a tiny bit...

Etole à torsade

Another first time : first cable!!! I chose a pattern from La Droguerie with a single, central cable and worked my way with a DPN (not having any cable needle). And you know what? It's kind of easy once you understand how it works. Ok, it took me a while to get it, and if I was honnest, I would add that I started this scarf all over again at least three times! But well.... It's finally : 1. finished 2. soft, soft, soft.... 3. warm, warm, warm.... Size : 100cm/30cm. I used 9mm needles and 250g Alpaga wool called Andes (from Drops,... [Lire la suite]

But what I haven't told you is that this thing about hand-knit socks, this kind of virus (because that's what it seems to be when you read posts across the blogo) was given to me by Mémé Toto. It wasn't my grand-mother, but my friend's from university, and I 've never even met her! But I wore her socks....I still own one pair -kind of worn out - for me, and keep another baby pair my friend gave me for Marin when he was born, 11 years ago.... In the meanwhile, when I went...

Week-end #1

Special Sunday at our place as I turned 40! I was absolutely spoiled : cards, presents, phone calls, "tarte Tatin" from Manu himself! Glorious weather (still extremely cold though), cakes, walk on the harbour. And so much love. My little one bought me some yarn (with the help of his dad!) and my tall one, some make-up! I loved the thoughts of these two!!! Manu designed a ring. It is being made. I love it. But, like me, you'll to wait to see it for real. I let my ripple aside for now because I decided to improve my knitting. A lot of... [Lire la suite]
