I finished the Mouchelette yesterday night. And Prune’s wearing it today of course !!! … I know, at first sight it looks exaclty the same at the first “prototype” but Nah.. scroll down to the aug. 11th post. See the difference ? The sleeves were too narrow, the top of the chest area was way […]

Yesterday we went on a little hike in the Aravis, the part of the Alps that sits just beside Annecy. So we went to the “confins” near the ski resort of “La clusaz”. Was super pretty, wide bowls (?) and sharp mountains, pine forest and dry grey rock. Plus the unexpected bonus of finding lots […]

My “rouet”

Huh Huh Huh !! See that ? I have no idea what you’d call it in english, but in french it’s apparently called a “rouet”. It’s been sitting in the family cabin for ever, and this afternoon my grandparents said they’re giving it to me. Yes, ME !! Ha, I still really can’t believe it. […]

Connection issues

Well it sucks. We’re having connection problems, so the connection goes on and off randomly. And it’s not even our ACTUAL internet connection, just our internal network connection. Like the other computer will work fine (the Linux one..) but not the one I have all my stuff on. So I keep on starting on something, […]

Ready for Round 2

Round 1 is over, I finished the first prototype. Looks promising, but lots of things to fix. I’m frogging it and trying again. One good point is that my 3-and-a-bit skeins are going to be plenty, so I don’t have to worry about that. :-) And I’ve been tagged by Christine. Like I said before […]

So I’ve started on a new project : a little raglan top for Plume. I’m using the Mission falls cotton Yahaira sent me and it’s fun so far. If the final result looks like I want it to, I’ll probably call the thing “mouchelette”, after one of my favorite songs as a kid (“mouche-mouchelette, moucheronette-moucheron, […]

First steps !!!!

Yesterday Prune made her first steps ! Woohoo !! We both were so loudly happy and proud (yeah, she even did it while her daddy was home) she got scared and nearly cried… Anyhow, she kept on walking today, little cautious steps, but still she walked, so I’m like WOW, entering a whole new world […]

I got this in the mail today: the awesome needlecase Melissa sent me, along with an assorted v. cool stitch marker. And speaking of stitch markers, I just started using one of these little guys yesterday, and I think I’m addicted ! Not that I NEED it – I’ve just cast on for a nb […]
