Quick update: testers wanted for new Mini marguerite cardigan

Posted: Thursday, March 15th, 2012 @ 12:54 pm in pattern testers | No Comments »

Heads-up: I have just finished writing and checking the pattern for my newest design, Mini marguerite cardigan, and am looking for a few testers. The pattern used Cascade Eco+ yarn (only 1 hank for smaller sizes) and instructions include 4 sizes from 18 months to 6 yo. For the Ravelers, you’ll find more details here. […]

More hats, and Armel hoodie

Per special request, my little Princess has a new hat. Don’t let her looks fool you, she loves it :-) I’m also working on adapting the Altay pattern for baby sizes. Therefore, I’m making yet more baby Altay hats, this time with Cashmerino dk: Yum, so soft and bouncy it’s a pleasure to crochet with […]

New pattern: Mama and baby Octopus “Poulpy” hat

Posted: Saturday, November 14th, 2009 @ 6:32 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, FO, pattern testers | 1 Comment »

Our friend Fabrice is a bit crazy, and we’ve been calling him “Poulpy” (poulpe= octopus in french) ever since he wore a dead octopus on his head during a costumed party. So about 2 years ago when he invited us for his birthday, I knew I had to make him something special, and thought of […]

Testing a hat pattern, anyone ?

Posted: Tuesday, November 10th, 2009 @ 10:43 pm in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, pattern testers | 1 Comment »

I have a new little design, ready to be revealed. Photos coming, I promise. Till then I’d love for somebody to double-check the pattern though. Would you be interested in testing a crocheted adult hat in Malabrigo merino worsted (or similar weight yarn), with a little surprise ? You’d need about 50g of a main […]

A whole new world

Material Whirled is having a Valentine yarn Giveaway. You gotta have a look there, first maybe to try to win the yummy skein of handspun, but most of all, to read all the fantastic quotes in the comments. (and another cool contest here, to win a beautiful nacho nuno-felted poncho) I have finally finished working […]

Tv or sleep ? – Spoiled !

Posted: Thursday, January 15th, 2009 @ 7:32 pm in Crochet, dyed, Fiber Prep, Hackle, pattern testers | 2 Comments »

Laurent and I used to sleep really bad, waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to sleep again until several hours later. Living in a really small place, we sleep in the living-room, so we first started with shutting down all the computers, servers and dsl lines during the night. […]

I am so ridiculously proud of my new mitts I can hardly stand it ! I’ve just finished typing the instructions for the right mitt, maybe I’ll have the pattern ready to send to testers tomorrow.. And I’d also love to make a third pair (pair # 2 has already found a new owner even […]

Second pair of Granny mitts

So I’ve finished crocheting all 4 Granny mitts, and am now starting the thumbs. I was a bit anxious about those thumbs but it seems the option I chose should look reaaaally nice ! I can’t wait to have them all done and show them to you… :-P I’ll try to write the pattern down […]

Knitting again…

Posted: Wednesday, June 11th, 2008 @ 8:36 pm in chezPlum Patterns, dyed, Knitting, pattern testers, spinning, swap, WIP | 2 Comments »

After just finishing one “bandwagon knit”, I’ve just started on another one: The moment I saw the February lady sweater by Flintknits the other day in my bloglines, I started looking for my needles and appropriate yarn ! When I started, there was 6 projects in Ravelry.. there’s now over a hundred, and it’s in […]
