A Malabrigo experiment, and Finished Orange yarn !

Posted: Friday, February 27th, 2009 @ 7:17 pm in Art yarn, Contest, Crochet, Knitting, Monthly Fiber Giveaway | 3 Comments »

There’s been some talk lately about Malabrigo Merino pilling like crazy. I’m not even going to try and argue about that, but was just wondering whether knitting it versus crocheting it made any difference. My friend Jette made her beautiful Violaine top with Malabrigo and she says it doesn’t pill. So I’m trying a little […]

New orange Art yarn, and February Fiber Giveaway

Posted: Sunday, February 22nd, 2009 @ 6:44 pm in Art yarn, Contest, Fiber Prep, Freebie, Monthly Fiber Giveaway, spinning | 32 Comments »

Yesterday I started spinning my Fiber Swap Art batts. As you can see, I love color ;-) Needle-felted some flowers, beads and oddments, and spun using the autowrapping and foreign objects techniques from “Sit and spin“. I love that the batts contain all sorts of fibers and textures (including chunks of locks) which renders beautifully […]

Last minute Birthday gift: a Headband

Posted: Friday, February 20th, 2009 @ 7:49 pm in Crochet, Family, Felting, kids craft, links | 2 Comments »

Prune went a birthday earlier today. That of course meant bringing a present for the little girl. But I don’t like buying yet more plastic and/or brand toys or dolls … So I just got a little HelloKitty booklet of cards and stickers, and figured we’d make something cute by ourselves. We started making a […]

Gallery updated: send me Your pics !

Posted: Wednesday, February 18th, 2009 @ 6:57 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Contest, Freebie | No Comments »

So I finally saw a feature on WordPress allowing me a choose a smaller size for my pics (or maybe the feature was added lately, because I really feel like I had looked and couldn’t find anything), so I finally took the time to update my Gallery !! :-D Which brings me to this: I […]

Vacations in the chalet, needle felting and other FOs…

Posted: Wednesday, February 18th, 2009 @ 3:42 pm in Crochet, Family, Felting, kids craft, SnB | 2 Comments »

Arghh, I meant to show you a little experiment I made with Malabrigo (basically to see if the yarn pills as much when knitted vs crocheted) but it seems I forgot the little mitts I made in the chalet !! :-/ I guess I’m always forgetting something when coming home from vacations !! :-P forget […]

Compagnons de la Marjolaine

Posted: Tuesday, February 17th, 2009 @ 10:24 am in french | 1 Comment »

A little french culture… That’s one of my favorite kids songs, and this version is really cute ! Plus it helps understanding the song, for once… :-) (Prune’s favorite is “La Tour prends garde“) We’re now back home, and it’s still snowing. Will post some pics tomorrow when I have some time.

Snowed in

Just a few words to say hi… We’re away for a week of vacation in Vercors. It’s snowing quite a lot, which is great.. You should have seen the smile on Laurent’s face while shoveling the snow from the driveway on our first day here… :-) Really we need to come living in the mountains […]

Scaphandre, my gigantic new cowl/capelet

Posted: Wednesday, February 4th, 2009 @ 10:40 pm in Crochet, Etsy, Felting, FO, kids craft, swap | 4 Comments »

I’m usually always SO cold when working inside on the computer all day. I’d be wrapping shawls and vests and things around my neck and bury my head in hooded sweaters… but I needed something more practical, and have been hunting Raverly for the perfect cowl/capelet pattern… As usual I found tons of cool ones, […]
