Not fooling around

As you might now, I spend a lot of my time working at Espace Tricot, the knitting store extraordinaire in Montreal. Also, I have weekly posts on our blog which are hopefully entertaining and informative to the readers.

Now Lisa, Melissa and I are up to more wonderful things - we are co-operating in publishing patterns for you to enjoy! They are featured on our blog and, best of all, free for you!

I am aware that this blog is my 'personal space' but I do put much work and love into my designs, so I want to share them here, too. Have a look at the first: The Ombre Tank, worked in the absolutely beautiful Habu Tsumugi Silk. This yarn is crunchy, summery and yet very soft once blocked. I very much enjoyed working with it.

Watch out for more to come!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I tried something new this year for Egg's Valentine's cards. Needle felted hearts! The roving I had (ahem, I haven't spun on any of my spindles in FOREVER, so I won't miss a bit of that stash...) in various pinks and purples available. All you do is stuff some roving into a cookie cutter and start punching it with a felting needle until it is done to your liking. Fun! 

(Of course when we brought them to Daycare to be distributed they stuck out like a sore thumb between the Disney Princess and whatnot offerings of the other kids. I hope in a good way...)

How to find my way back?

Can you go back? Can  you reconcile with your neglected blog to get where you once where? I'm not sure.

Do or do not. There is not try.

Does everyone know now that I blog once a week here?
