after the shock of the terrorist attacks here in France last week, i’m slowly getting back into work and enjoying the soft colors of life… 3 shades of Eco+ & Ecological wool by Cascade to make a 2nd sample of the hooded cardigan i recently finished for my daughter. this one will be for me, […]

WIP wednesday – hooded cropped bolero

Posted: Wednesday, May 27th, 2015 @ 9:21 am in Crochet, Yarn | No Comments »

A new hood, for a cropped bolero thought for chilly summer festival nights … Yarn is very “Magic wool deluxe” from Kuka/Ice yarns. 100% wool, single with long color repeats reminiscent of the Noro but softer hand. Loving it, can’t wait to have more to show :-D

On Friday I went to Gap (in the french Alps) with a couple fellow ravelers to see the exposition displaying dozens of Wools of Europe. With helene, the Icelandic knitter we chatted about designing and Iceland, while with Alice we petted all the different wools and talked about spinning. The expo was fantastic: imagine a […]

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 […]

Yesterday it was my birthday, and on top of a beautiful drawing made by Prune, I was spoiled by Emily who surprised me at our weekly SnB meeting with a skein of beautiful sock yarn (from the All raveled up Sock Club), the pattern for the Suprise jackets (both baby and adult versions) and a […]

On blogging and such…

Posted: Wednesday, May 28th, 2008 @ 8:56 am in french, Knitting, SnB, spinning, Uncategorized, Yarn | 5 Comments »

So it’s been a little over three years that I started blogging and my whole ChezPlum adventure now. Funny how things have evolved since… In the beginnings I made some good bloggy-friends, who now have totally disapeared from the blogosphere and I’ve basically never heard from them again. I used to hang out all the […]

Plying boucle yarns

So I did ply my single with a strand of lilac Aurore. I really like the outcome (and I got 92 m this time, Yay !!). So much so that I ended up listing it on Etsy (not as in “I don’t like it so let’s sell it” but rather as in “wow, it’s actually […]
