Posted: Monday, December 5th, 2016 @ 11:19 am in Crochet, french | 2 Comments »

A few rays of sun today, perfect occasion to show you my new “Konk Kerne” shawl by french designer Vŕ©ronique Chermette/Barjolaine. A very light and airy shawl, featuring this superb lace pattern designed to imitate the fishermen’s nets from Concarneau in french Brittany. Mine looks smaller than the original, probably because of my yarn choice: a […]

Holidays are over, would you believe I hardly touched my hooks for about a month and a half ? No crochet, too busy to read, swim, rest and spend time with friends and family… I did wear a lot my newsest crochet shawl though, the beautiful “Lizard shawl” by Jasmin Rŕ¤sŕ¤nen: a bold mix of airy […]

After weeks of making pompons, teaching the basics of knitting and crochet to kids and adults during our wednesday free workshops at our local library, it’s been a huge pleasure to install the first pompom garlands and armchair cozies.

Fantastic day last sunday, full of fiber and spinning wheels and drumcarders, dear friends and new friends. We spun, carded, chatted, watched a demo of carding a super textured batt for art yarns.. And all this only 1 hour away from home in our little corner of France. It was a joy to be among […]
