Baby Kimo

Baby Kimo for a friend's baby. I finished and offered this in December and I'm sure he's outgrown it by now.

Moroccan Nights

Moroccan Nights, my new favourite sweater. I finished this one a few weeks ago and I'm very pleased with the way it all tuned out. This was a very tricky textured knit: double moss stitch, increases, decreases and cables all at the same time. I had to write everything down and keep notes of what I was doing. I got stuck at one stage because I misplaced my little notebook and didn't know what I had to do next. So keep notes and don't loose your little notebook ;-)

If I should make this again, I will change the neckline a bit. I don't like the way the neckline rolls at the back. I was thinking of addding an i-cord to flatten it but another blogger suggested to do a row of single crochet, so I might just try that.

Pattern: Moroccan Night by Rililie
Yarn: Drops alpaca, 5 skeins for a size small
Needles: I used 3mm and 3,5mm needles

Cable detail on the sides

Today I had another post programmed to wish you all a Happy New Year but in light of the recent event in Paris,it just doesn't seem right to blog about anything or to make as if nothing happened. 
So ...

lundi 29 décembre 2014


I haven't had much time to blog lately, lots of knitting, sewing, new projects and many trips to Paris.  I've been trying to finish all my works in progress by the end of the year. I still have 2 days to go and it looks like I might just obtain my objectif. 

In a previous post, I was working on 3 projects. I finished my Avalon, which was a gift for someone. My Moroccan Nights is blocking at the moment and I just have to knit the band on my daughters Tea leaves.

Here are some pictures of my Avalon. This was a very easy project. I used Wollemeise 100% superwash in Spinaci with 3,75mm needles. I loved how this turned out. I made the scarf version but next time I will make the stole version.

Dinosaures grrrrrrrrrrrrr !

I made these dinosaures for my son's birthday party. The kids we're delighted and all the dinosaures got new homes. Due to many requests on facebook, I made a new batch of dinosaures and some of them are for sale on my facebook page.

J'ai fabriqué ces dinosaures pour l'anniversaire de mon fils. Les enfants étaient ravis et tous les dinosaures ont trouvés une nouvelles maison. Suite à plusieurs demandes sur Facebook, j'ai refais quelques dinosaures qui sont en vente sur ma page Facebook.
