Pengweeno

2 years ago I made a penguno jacket for myself and it is one of my favourite things I ever knitted (after the wedding blanket). West Knit release the children version and it was fun to make it again. I made the size 1-2 year old for a little boy.

Red rompers

During the Wool and the gang sales last September, I bought the kit to make the round house rompers in coral crush. I know buying these kits from big company is not the most economical way the knit but I just found this garnement so cute that I could not resist. The kit comes with…

Tabular sweater

Last spring I knitted the tabular sweater published in Pompom quarterly issue 23. It was the third projects I have made from this issue after the Fluorite socks and the ephemeris wrap. I was buying way to much knitting magazines but not making much, so I decided to stop and bought myself a subscription to…

Million star shawl

Like last year, Rachel from Rachelsaysyepa organised a Knit along : “tricote la comme Rachel”. During this KAL, you could knit any designs that Rachel had already done and get help if you were stuck. I chose to knit the shawl “Million Stars” from NCL knit. I chose colours that remind me of spring. My…

Postmark socks

I have knitted the socks from issue 24 of Pompom mag. Each pattern from this issue is inspired by a stamp and the socks pattern is inspired by a stamps from Danemark. The chart however has a mistake and I ended up with a row of detached dots at the top of the socks instead…

Fluorite socks

My drawer are started to get full of knitted jumpers but I really enjoy knitted : it is a great way for me to relax. So I needed to find interesting projects that would take time but not as many space in my closet than jumpers. That is how I started knitting socks. I watch…

Ephemeris wrap

I have knitted the ephemeris pattern that was published in the Winter issue of Pompom mag. I have chosen a bright orange wool in contrast with a more subtlety sparkled yarn. The pattern is well explained and it was super interesting to knit as some techniques used in it were new to me !

Honeycomb hat 

I have knitted myself a new hat for the winter. I used a pattern from the latest Vogue Knitting magazine. I had starting the project with a beautiful hand dyed wool. However I did not like very much the color patterns produced by the yarn with the cables, it was too busy !  So I…

Men’s gloves 

3 years ago, when my husband was away for work, I had crocheted him a pair of gloves. When he came back and tried the gloves, they were too small. I was quite disappointed and it put me off of doing gloves for quite a long time. However my husband is always teasing me and…

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…
