In the last post you would have not have any idea on how big and crazy the shawl really is. I took some pictures of the finished object even though that day was horrible. Now the shawl is on its way to my lovely mum who I am pretty sure will wear it everyday of winter!
After the words of Westknits, brioche is the stitch of 2015 ! I actually believe that it is definitely the stitch of not only this year but also the ones to come. It has so many possibilities in terms of colour play and texture that you can not be put off by it but only be attracted to it! ok, to be fair it looks scary and like many new things it takes a bit of practice to get the hang to it :)
Another great design by Monsieur West! The knitting of penguono is an adventure. you follow a well put together instruction and you create something truly unique. The colour play is endless. You can make a mysterious penguono with some grey and black, a crazy bright one or a earthy one …. endless colour combinations that can suite any soul.
If you have to chose between being mortal or goddess, what would you chose?
I am not sure…. I think I would chose mortal, just so I live the day like my last one …It is so easy to say but so hard to do…and what about you?
Countess Ablaze new collection, The Odyssey Trail, the colours are, as usual, outstanding. When I saw “but are you mortal or goddess” in DK, my little crush on pink was singing to my ears buy my please buy me! I know that the yarns from this collection will never be repeated. So I had to buy it, right? so I did :) and I had a perfect pattern on my queue on Ravelry. It was made for the yarn or the yarn for it. The perfect relationship.
Hello everyone ! It has been a long time, life caught me and squeezed me hard, I recovered and now here I am. today, I want to present you a new, noteworthy, talented knitter who I encounter on the famous ravelry, Clare Divine aka Knitsforklipskaap.

I love blogging without expectation and I will share only passion. The other important part of blogging to me is the great feeling of snuggling into a mini space, a virtual one, where I am happy and free. I love taking pictures so dressing my pictures with words is just the cheery on the top of a gluten free cake :). So when I came across the love your blog challenge created by A playful day, I thought that it was a great idea therefore I decided to join the thread of love
When my mum came to visit, we had some great knitting time together. My mum is an amazing and fast knitter. she loves perfection and I have to say that my threshold for perfection is not as high as hers. When she stayed with us, she knitted 2.5 shawls (one pebble beach shawl from curious handmade, barndom from westknits, started rock island from Jared Flood) and a mini parachutey for my son! Here is her knitting adventure in pictures! Continue reading
A beautiful Grasshopper in fingering weight from Republic of wool, beautiful greens, beautiful texture and a delight to knit with. Another pebble beach shawl knitted, using another hand dyed yarn, this shawl has to be added to my collection of hand dyed pebble. I am traveling around the world through the making of the pebble shawl following a hand dyed trail. I went to the UK with the phoenix pebble made of Countess Ablaze goodness, I went to Australia with sweet pebble made of Skeinyarn and now I went to the USA with Republic of Wool and all this travel was through seeing and knitting the colours of a thread of yarn. I guess that was a cheap way of travelling :)
I organised a mini giveaway at the end of February and I was meant to tell everyone who was the lucky winner on the 6th of March, so 8 days later I am finally writing the mini story of the little giveaway. First I would like to say thank you to all of you who left lovely comments on both my instagram and my little blog . THANKS :)!!!!!
Who does not daydream ?? I certainly do. Sometime it is about work ( I know, it is weird but I really LOVE my job) sometime it is about pretty things, knitting project, impossible creations and design, I also day dream about fabric, Lego, Minecraft, vintage my little pony…. the list is long I am a real daydreamer. The thing is that when I am in this parallel world I can still function at almost 50% which is quite useful as I can still have an almost normal social life :).
My little blog has been nominated by blogcreatifa for the daydreamer award and I am very happy that she has shared this award with me! it is a sweet feeling ! so thanks again! You made me smile!
