What’s in my knitting bag? Oh, there’s usually no such thing! My projects are lying around half-frogged (as I stick to trial and error type of knitting). I always forget to photograph them, not even as FOs. Well, not this time! This time I’m going to knit properly: following a pattern, announcing a WIP and… […]
Here’s Jared. He’s currently staying with his dear uncle Bernard. Jared is difficult to catch for a photo shoot, as his days are full of various activities. I managed to take a picture from above while he was on his way to yoga class.
Christmas ornaments in May? It seemed to be an okay idea for a single sock. Because, you know, I don’t think I can make the second one of anything. But the idea to try knitting a toe-up sock had been haunting me for a while. I suffer from some unnamed condition : being unable to take […]
I already showed you a sturdy rope basket I crocheted. This time I was going to use the rest of that rope to make another container. I started with crochet to make the solid bottom of my future basket, working in spirals with single crochet stitches. Then I picked up loops for the knitted part. […]

Sometimes yarn looks so much better in skeins than in a finished product. Well, in my case that’s probably due to a poorly chosen pattern. There was a scarf made with variegated yarn, and it was mostly sitting on a shelf. So I frogged the scarf and tried to crochet what was supposed to be […]
Bernard has ventured into the world of start-ups. He thinks so, anyhow. I told him that hatching an egg in some sort of an incubator and trying to sell the chicken wouldn’t make it a business incubator (e.g. like those). He wouldn’t listen to me. I think I will have to keep him away from […]
My son thinks this is the most important sign of spring
I was crocheting a chicken, and it occurred to me that the best way to make two symmetrical wings was to create each one with a different hand. Did I tell you that I enjoy coming up with ideas and, especially, reinventing the wheel? I tried to crochet with my left hand (which is non-dominant). […]
This tulip photo is optimistic about spring. (On with my flower photo challenge)
