Mini dotted rays 

Last month, I went to the yarn folk festival that was held in Whitehead in Northern Ireland. I wanted to find some yarn to make the dotted ray shawl. There was so many yarn to chose from and I purchase a few skeins.  I made the shawl with a sock yarn from Dye Candy called…

Pink Sweat sweater

As part of the KAL tricotelacommerachel, I knitted the sweater sweater from Marcelle et Clo.  I really like the lace mottif : it had interest to a simple construction.  The wool is Phil light from Phildar and the colour is called “Grenadine”. 

Dwyn shawl

The knitter magazine had published a beautiful pattern for a rectangular lace shawl a few month ago. The designer is Jennifer Wood. I had never knitted any lace before but I found the pattern too beautiful not to have a go at it ! With the help of lots of YouTube videos to explained the yarn…

Peacock feather blouse   

I sometimes buy the French magazine “Marie Claire idées” online but I had to ask my sister to get a hard copy for me last April when they a free pattern for the blouse I Am Joy from the pattern company I Am Patterns.  We had decided to sew together with my mum and my…

Crochet pot cover

We bought plants from Best Buds in Belfast to put on a high shelve in the flat and I made some cover to hide the plastic pots of the plants. I used yarn I had left from other projects to crochet them, including disco yarn and jersey be good yarn in blue demin from Wool…

Penguono jacket

I wanted to find a project to use my blue scraps of yarn. When I saw Nappy knitter post on Instagram, i wanted to do the penguono jacket in shades of blues. The pattern is from West Knits and it is very fun to make : alll the part are assembled while knitting so when you bind off the…

I have been going to a craft group that meet up every Tuesday evening in different coffee shops around Belfast (see the group Facebook page) and for the first time this winter, we had organised a CAL.  We all brought a copy of Mollie makes issue 74 to make a crochet cushion cover. The pattern by…

Wedding blanket

At our weddings, my family had asked all the guests to come with a bottle of wine and a ball of wool ! Such a great idea !  All the wool was different – different colours and different quality- and I wanted to keep it all together in a project that would remind us of…

2 bandanas = 1 shawl 

It is still quite cold and stormy in Belfast in February so I knitted a comfy and warm shawl to wait for spring to come.  I really liked the design for the “say wool be there” bandana but I knew it was going to be to small as it is and I would never wear…

Aime comme météore

I was planning to do another vogue dress using a soft jersey but then I came across the aime comme météore dress on Instagram and I changed my plan.  The dress is fairly simple : the original pattern has a zip in the back. However the fabric I had chosen is strechy so I did…

Amélie dress

Another Christmas present that was given to me was the kit to knit the Amelie dress from wool and the gang.   The dress is so confortable. It is however a bit see through so I wear it on top a black top and a pair of black jeans. 

Même pas froid 

My sister offered me a really nice knitting kit for Christmas. The kit is from Peace and wool and it is to make a giant snood. I love the colour she had chosen : a beautiful green !  It is knitted with 15mm needles and the finished snood is super warm !
