So I’m just done blocking my second Laughingbird scarf this month. I never knit the same pattern twice, so I guess I really love this pattern.
I used Novena yarn by Lang Yarn, soft and easy to knit. Bought it in a little yarn shop in a little of nowhere, a french village with empty streets and a lot of rain. And the shop was closing, so I had to ask the lady to open for me before she said goodbye to her shop.
The colors reminded me of Froderick.
Froderick The Bat.
If you ever played A Vampyre Story, you might understand the pizza quote.
Tonight, I’ll be watching David Suchet portray Hercule Poirot, so I need to find a new knitting project…

Close up, so many errors showing up, but I like it anyhow.
I used Lang bébé yarn, that I bought in a little yarn shop in a small town in France. The shop was closing on the next day, so I bought random yarn to cheer up the landlady. Then I wondered what to knit with it. And now the project is already over !
I love blocking lace, the magic of the lace pattern appearing…
I love that pattern so much that I’ve already started another one, with stripes of light and dark purple.
How do you like this pattern ? What’s your favorite stashbuster ?
Just a quick word to say I’m really exited to be a part of l’Aiguille en fête, a fair gathering needles crafts in Paris. I’ll at stand G9.3 with Addicted2knit this week end. Come and say hello !
This year my resolution was to avoid buying fabrics and yarn and you know, all those lovely colorfull stuff we use for our magic. I’m pretty sure my will is going to yield, and I’m going to buy plenty of yarn this week-end.
How do you prepare for knitting fairs ? Do you write down a list of the patterns/yarns you want ?
So I decided to knit a new baby hat, using my good old garter stitch baby hat free pattern (I haven’t translated it in english yet, if anyone wants to do the translation please let me know. My laziness isn’t getting any better).
I used double pointed needles in 3,5mm, and Bergere de France yarn in Caline, using white this time. Here’s my knitting after just an jour and a half knitting quietly. I think this pattern is slightly to wide for a newborn, so I’ll probably try to knit another hat with 2,5mm needles to see the result.
So, at the moment I’m trying to look for goth patterns for baby clothes. There’s a baby on its way in a goth family that I love and I really want to make plenty of cute stuff. We won’t know the gender until it’s actually born, so I’m struggling to find colors.
Any ideas ?
Right now I’m knitting my usual family garter stitch baby cardigan in black and white stripes. What do you think ? I wanted to use red and black, but they ran out of red.
