Argh, 3 shells !

Posted: Thursday, December 13th, 2007 @ 6:01 pm in Crochet, swap, WIP, Yarn | 3 Comments »

I had 2 skeins of Kureyon in that 147 shade. Hooked away thinking I could still make it a bit shorter as it’s okay-ish with 6 rows of shells. But I’m short of 3 shells to finish that 6th row !!! :-/ Would anyone have tiny remnants (15-20 g) of Kureyon 147 (lot A) by […]

I need more Malabrigo merino worsted for future projects… so I thought I’d try and swap/sell that HipKnits aran weight silk…. Have a look on Destash for details ! Also, look at my pink Scarflette in that “button up” Treasury !! :-)

More scarflettes !

Yesterday night I finished the pink scarflette: chose a set of pretty vintage buttons (they’re mostly glass buttons!) and sewed them on. Here’s the photos ! Far right picture is a (bad) preview of that new crochet scarf I’m working on. I have so many projects in mind with this mix of yarns… Not a […]

I used to read A LOT. As in I’d read any book I found in my teens. (and btw that’s how I read “Jane Eyre” in english when I was about 13, after having already read it in french.. Side note for all those who ask that “How come you speak such good english” question.. […]

I got this in the mail today: the awesome needlecase Melissa sent me, along with an assorted v. cool stitch marker. And speaking of stitch markers, I just started using one of these little guys yesterday, and I think I’m addicted ! Not that I NEED it – I’ve just cast on for a nb […]
