crochet cats workshop

I was invited by a group of Femma-ladies for a workshop amigurumi's.
I suggested they'd make the crochet cat - and this is the gorgeous result !
It was a nice evening, thank you ladies !


Free pattern and photo tutorial are available on my blog.

retro beanie

I am knitting a cardigan for myself, in fair isle.  A work of patience, all those small stiches in a row.
Therefore, I need some distraction.  A small project, quick to finish.
And when something like this comes along on facebook, it was love at first sight.



I bought the pattern, and the babywool from Bergère de France and set out to knit intarsia.
Who remembers the little plastic fish - dangling on your needle ?  I has been ages since I used them. Probably from since the boys were little and I knitted them sweaters with footballs on, or Zorro.




Well, this is the result.  I love the combination of light blue / red.  It reminds me of something my mother knit for my doll, Mireille.  Those were exact the same colours. I am speaking of the 1960ies....

Now for a little girl who can wear this. The pattern included little mitts too....  aren't they cute ?

a warm hat for the cold days

In winter time, it's all about keeping the young ones warm.  This Ladybug hat is too cute, and I think it can be worn by a boy as well as a girl.




A lovely pattern I found in this book


It was knit up very quickly, and had some fun parts, like the flap is knit with Wrap&Turn technique, and the antenna's are Icords.  And I made the pompons with this plastic device I recently got in the knitting shop, and Lo and Behold, it actually works !

another little project I finished is this baby hat & socks.  It is knit in super soft baby merino, I got at the Knitting exhibition in Zwolle.  I love it....




Greetings to you all and keep warm !
