My first knitting charts…

Posted: Wednesday, May 13th, 2009 @ 7:37 pm in Knitting, links | 1 Comment »

I’ve been working on a secret project for several months now, swatching and thinking A LOT about different issues involved with the construction. I’d be turning it around in my head during the night, still not fully satisfied with the way I had planned it. And suddenly I found the solution (ahem, let’s hope it […]

Taking it one step further

Posted: Saturday, April 25th, 2009 @ 10:01 am in Crochet, Fiber Prep, Knitting | 2 Comments »

Since I told my family about my new passion for spinning, a couple people said they’d ask friends/neighbouts about raw wool from their sheep. And this is what I just from my Sister in Law, about a pound of raw wool from one of her work colleagues !! So cool !! (I asked for no […]

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 […]

Working on the 6-yo-size Roselette

Posted: Friday, January 30th, 2009 @ 9:13 pm in Knitting | 3 Comments »

I worked on the Roselette‘s numbers, and am now crocheting a sample to see if the proportions look right. I managed to get Prune to try it on earlier today … so far so good ! This one is made with two strands of thrifted acrylic yarn. I like that look, and really want that […]

Yay, new hat !

Posted: Saturday, December 20th, 2008 @ 6:34 pm in Knitting | 2 Comments »

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 […]

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… […]

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, […]

ChezPlum was hacked !!

Posted: Friday, November 28th, 2008 @ 3:14 pm in Knitting | 3 Comments »

Argh, ChezPlum was hacked earlier this week, apparently due to a security hole in WordPress. :-/ Thankfully my husband managed to finally fix things today, reinstalled the last version of WordPress, migrating ChezPlum to a new server and re-uploading all the pictures. It will probably look all wonky for a while until we manage to […]

Girls-sized shawl

Posted: Wednesday, November 12th, 2008 @ 11:37 am in FO, Knitting, spinning | 2 Comments »

I have lovely models for my shawl around… :-) It’s now blocked and looking pretty perfect. I finally decided against the button closure. It’s just lovely, lightweight and warm around my shoulders… In fact I’m wearing it this morning as I type this post. Oh and I realised I forgot to add details. The yarn […]

I just left a comment, now let’s cross fingers..! :-P Finished my feather and fan mini-shawl yesterday. […]
