New pattern, and a new cardi

Posted: Thursday, February 4th, 2010 @ 10:32 am in chezPlum Patterns, Contest, Freebie, Gallery, Knitting, swap, WIP | 63 Comments »

Late on schedule, let me present you my newest pattern, the Baby Altay hat ! Based on the same principles as the adult version, the Altay hat (soon to be published in Annie Modessit’s new book “1000 knit and crocheted hats”). I made tons of those little hats, and they are so quick to make […]

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, […]

Hand carders: the very beginning of the learning curve

Posted: Saturday, November 22nd, 2008 @ 3:41 pm in french, kids craft, spinning, stitchmarkers, swap | No Comments »

This week I received my brand new Ashford hand carders. Of course I had to try them right away !! The first tries were not great : from looking on Youtube I see I wasn’t doing it properly, will watch some videos next time I try!! I first tried to card some random white wool […]

Vintage spindles for trade

Posted: Friday, October 24th, 2008 @ 2:08 pm in french, spinning, swap | 1 Comment »

So I indulged in a lot of vintage supported spindles from Ebay last week, they’re so cool and pretty ! However, I don’t really need all 3 and want a pair of hand carders so bad (untill I can justify buying a drum carder, that is.. ;-) ) that I thought maybe somebody might be […]

Pattern download now thru Ravelry, and more spinning

Posted: Friday, August 1st, 2008 @ 2:55 pm in dyed, spinning, swap | 2 Comments »

I kept having troubles with the pattern download system so I’ve now moved it all so the downloads go through Ravelry. Don’t fret though, apparently there’s no need to be a Rav’ member to be able to buy a pattern (but is there anybody still not in Ravelry anyways ..? :-P ) If anybody has […]

Some knitting, and lots of spinning/dyeing

Posted: Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008 @ 11:14 am in dyed, Gallery, Knitting, spinning, swap, WIP | No Comments »

Hi eveybody, so I think I’ve fixed some things around here. For some reason there was some automatic rewriting of my main url (chezplum.com becoming chezplum.com/blog). Seems it blocked some feedreaders, and I’m hoping this was the reason for the bug in my pattern-download system. (if you still have any trouble uploading a pattern, please […]

Knitting again…

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 […]

Anybody for a Fiber swap Club ?

Posted: Friday, June 6th, 2008 @ 10:59 am in dyed, spinning, swap | 3 Comments »

I love colorfull rovings and would spend hours looking at all those lovely colorways on Etsy… I’ve been thinking about joining a fiber club, but argh, too expensive. Plus I dye my own, so in theory I could make my own in every color of my dreams. BUt then there’s the surprise-me factor… So I […]
