2008 Retrospective

Posted: Wednesday, December 31st, 2008 @ 8:16 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, FO, spinning | 6 Comments »

In a few hours it will be the end of 2008. This was a good year for me, with a lot of crocheting, lots of new designs.. and learning to spin too which was quite a revelation ! :-D Funny to see I only managed 2 knitted FOs this year ! Really crochet seems more […]

Books, and new pics for the Gallery

Posted: Wednesday, December 31st, 2008 @ 7:25 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, Gallery | No Comments »

This morning Maud & I went grocery shopping as the cupboards were starting to be dangerously empty… and I came back with this book. I’ve already read about half of the 350 pages, such an amazing book ! It seems it’s not available on amazon.com yet, so here’s the french link. Simply a beautiful set […]

Lovely day on the local mountain

Posted: Monday, December 22nd, 2008 @ 12:45 pm in Family | 1 Comment »

Yesterday we had a fantastic day : We went to the Semnoz, the local mountain to ski with the girls. … & of course I was wearing my new hat ! ;-) The bad side was I had to wait nearly an hour to buy the tickets, and by that time the clouds were hiding […]

Yay, new hat !

Remember that last pic I showed last week ? There was a lot of ripping and re-crocheting since, first because I didn’t have enough of the green yarn, and then because I had to change the numbers a bit… But now it’s done and I LOVE it !! I’m just so happy when a design […]

ChezPlum on the web

I am lucky to be featured on 2 blogs these days: While Lime&Violet featured the Vroomies pattern in their Advent Calendar, head out to Tina’s blog to read my interview as part of her Knitting Contrisstas series. Lots of cool other interviews too, so honored ! :-D Have started working on a new hat (until […]

Ugly little mitt, lots of snow and more fiber on the Hackle

Posted: Wednesday, December 10th, 2008 @ 5:10 pm in Etsy, Family, Fiber Prep, FO, Hackle, Knitting, review, spinning | No Comments »

Publishing 2 posts today but I’d just rather make the most of the free time ahead for once, with both girls asleep and hopefully recovering from the cold and ear infection they caught last week. They’ve had plenty of time inside and rest but I guess they’re just tired of this first trimester of school/daycare… […]

Playing with the Hackle, day 2

Posted: Wednesday, December 10th, 2008 @ 4:05 pm in dyed, Fiber Prep, Hackle, review, spinning | 1 Comment »

As Promised, here’s the sequel of my first tries with my new toy, the great Hackle from Laurel, aka CatskillMtnFibers on Etsy. This time I prepared some fiber in advance, and dyed some cormo (which Laurel had also so graciously sent along with the hackle) and fine Merino in a deep burgundy color. I also […]

Fiber calendar for 2009, what do you think ?

Posted: Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008 @ 10:59 pm in Knitting | 2 Comments »

So I never managed to buy a calendar for 2008 and really missed it this year, missing all sorts of meetings and generally never really catching up on things. So I knew I’d have one hanging in my kitchen this year no matter what. I bought 2 yesterday (including a beautiful one for Rebecca Dautremer, […]

My new Hackle !!

Posted: Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008 @ 3:52 pm in Hackle, links, review, spinning | No Comments »

I first met Laurel through Ravelry in the Fiber Swap Club. She’s the one who sent me the beautiful Merino roving I used for my mini-shawl. She’s lucky to have a very crafty husband who makes all sorts of tools, including hackles which Laurel sells in her Etsy store on top of her fiber goodies. […]
