Granny square, triangle or pentagon ?

Posted: Saturday, October 31st, 2009 @ 4:18 pm in Crochet, WIP | 1 Comment »

Trying some basic granny square shapes to test a few ideas… We’ll see if I can get anything out of it. :-) The colors are pretty together, even though their totally different texture totally shows. Can you see how the purple yarn looks very slightly bouclŕ© with a very rounded and slighly undefined texture, when […]

Sometimes I’m amazed that despite all the testing and people using my patterns, some typos will show up long after the publication of a pattern. :-/ We were away for a couple days visiting my in-laws, and I visited their local thrifstore. Found great stuff there, and a few cute skeins of yarn. Including this […]

Winter accessories: My patterns for free ! :-)

Winter will be there very soon. We already had a very very cold week earlier this month, and I can tell you we got all the hats and gloves out of their summer hideout ! I love to see what you knit/crochet from my patterns, and I’d love to see more of my hats, mitts […]

Elf slippers galore !

Prune’s new slippers have been finished for a while, but I only added soles yesterday night. They’re kind of foam soles, and I’m not sure they’ll last long. But at least they’re anti-slippery so that prune doesn’t fall every step she makes ;-) Of course Maud asked for a pair too, which I made so […]

Thoughts on advertising on Ravelry, Crafster or Etsy…

Posted: Friday, October 16th, 2009 @ 2:35 pm in chezPlum Patterns, links, review | 1 Comment »

So my “featured pattern” thing on Ravelry is now over. I thought it might be a good occasion to share a few thoughts on results I got from advertising spots on different sites such as Ravelry, Etsy or Crafster. We’d all love to advertise for our indie business, but it’s sometimes hard to know what […]

Elfin slippers

It won’t come as a surprise that I love granny squares. I also love to think about all the possible shapes you can achieve with something as simple as a granny square. I fell in love with this design the minute I saw it. The instructions are very basic but once you know the basics […]

1000 hats !

Posted: Thursday, October 1st, 2009 @ 8:36 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, Published | 5 Comments »

It’s now official so I guess I can finally brag about it: my Altay hat was selected by annie Modesitt in the runners up for the book “1000 hats”. It’s great news for me because although I don’t really get paid for it, the pattern for this hat will be published in the book and […]
