Brunehilde, to frog or not to frog ?

Posted: Monday, October 18th, 2010 @ 6:15 pm in Crochet, Knitting, WIP | 1 Comment »

Poor photos, but am too impatient as always. I am in LOVE with the collar… but not too sure about the waist triangles. I had planned smaller ones, but changed my mind and made them bigger. Maybe I need to frog a few rounds and go back to my initial plan ?

Iro: a new sweater

Posted: Friday, October 15th, 2010 @ 6:20 pm in Knitting, WIP | 1 Comment »

Last winter I fell in love with this Iro bulky/boxy cardi, indulged in some of the most expensive yarn I ever bought for a sweater, and started to knit. It wasn’t finished during the cold season though, and waited all summer in a corner to be finished. (there was only a sleeve missing or something […]

More granny squares…

Posted: Saturday, May 1st, 2010 @ 9:32 am in Crochet, WIP | No Comments »

I have finally decided on the colors for my grown-up version of Ermeline. But until the yarn arrives, I can’t stand those idle hands and HAD to start working on something. Anything. Of course, in that case granny squares are the best remedy. :-) I started with small ones to try the Sophie Digard style. […]

Plume’s Ermeline, and numbers

Posted: Thursday, March 25th, 2010 @ 10:40 am in chezPlum Patterns, Crochet, WIP | No Comments »

Working on Plume’s Ermeline cardi makes it easier to work on all those numbers, as I get to use them right away :-) The good feedback I got on Ravelry is also a great motivation. And yes, I am already thinking of an adult version: Of course I want mine too. With a hood of […]

Tiny booties

Posted: Thursday, March 18th, 2010 @ 2:13 pm in Crochet, Knitting, WIP | No Comments »

Plume said last week that the dolls they have at school didn’t have booties any more. Knowing that I knit and crochet, the lady apparently said (probably half joking) “you should ask your mum to make them new booties”. Which I did, because nothing is more exciting than a new challenge. Of course I have […]

Oh the joy of knitting with Noro yarns…

Posted: Monday, February 22nd, 2010 @ 5:32 pm in book review, Knitting, Sewing, WIP | No Comments »

I have a few Noro books. I even indulged in the latest Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton “Noro” book, tempted by the story on “the man behind Noro yarns”. Well that part was very interesting, but it was only a few pages and I can’t say I’m thrilled by the designs presented in that book. :-/ “Knitting […]

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 […]

Granny square, triangle or pentagon ?

Posted: Saturday, October 31st, 2009 @ 4:18 pm in Crochet, WIP | 1 Comment »

Trying some basic granny square shapes to test a few ideas… We’ll see if I can get anything out of it. :-) The colors are pretty together, even though their totally different texture totally shows. Can you see how the purple yarn looks very slightly bouclŕ© with a very rounded and slighly undefined texture, when […]

First days at school and new hat

Posted: Monday, September 7th, 2009 @ 9:18 pm in Family, Knitting, WIP | 1 Comment »

Both girls are now going to school here in Vercors. Prune loves her new school and Maud is doing ok (she even went all day today). That leaves me lots of time to work during the day, wow. We did the usual first-day-of-school shot, but of course miss prune can’t stay still so she’s all […]

Handspun cuff, purple Gudule… and Packing !

Posted: Tuesday, August 11th, 2009 @ 10:50 am in Crochet, Family, Knitting, WIP, Yarn | 1 Comment »

Last week we went away for a few days with the girls to my granmother’s chalet, as it’s hard to keep them busy here in our tiny appartment. I brought a few projects with me and although I didn’t do half as much as expected, I still have a couple (unfinished) things to show. I […]
