Socks sisters/Sœurs de chaussettes

As I told you before, my sister fell in love with my cup of tea socks. So I decided to knit her a pair. At the same time, I discovered thanks to  Fille d'hiver's podcast that there was a really cool KAL that was juste beginning on Ravelry called les 12 petons du Herr General : you have to knit 12 pairs of socks in a year. What a coincidence! I had just decided that 2016 would be the year of the Sock! So I suscribed immediately and this pair is my 1st of the 12.It is made with the free pattern my cup of tea socks with... [Lire la suite]

Yarn bombing #1 / Tricoffiti #1

For those who are not yet aware of it, there has been a revolution in the knitting world a few years back. It's called yarn bombing and it appeared in 2005.

My first pair of socks / Ma première paire de chaussettes

My sister came over for the holidays and it was GREAT! It was also the occasion for her to see my handknitted socks in real life, and she fell in love with them, so I'm definitely going to make her a pair. I also showed her the first pair of socks I've ever knitted. It was a few (3?) years back. I chose the pattern By the Seine river by Dona Knits (in English and in French, free on Ravelry) and used the yarn Perfection by Bergère de France in a bright pink coulour (they don't make it anymore). The socks knitted... [Lire la suite]
