Crafting On: High Waisted Overalls

Joining Nicole at Frontier Dreams for Crafting On...

I just recently finished adding buttons (Wooly Moss Roots) to these High Waisted Baby Overalls so Evie could start wearing them. She looks very comfy in them and I love the high waist that keeps her core nice and warm. I think these overalls are adorable and super practical. I highly recommend this pattern.

Happy Crafting On!

Spring Days/Journées de printemps

We are currently enjoying spring in Montreal, taking long walks in the parks, spring flowers are blooming everywhere.  We've been having lots of rain too, which is making everything very green and it's good for knitting...

En ce moment, nous profitons du printemps à Montréal. Nous faisons de longues promenades dans les parcs. Tout est en fleur. Nous avons eu beaucoup de pluie aussi dernièrement, ce qui rend tout très  vert. Les journées de pluie, c'est aussi très bon pour le tricot...

Pondering what to make with gorgeous Canopy yarn by the Fibre Co. in sunny Mango (love this yellow!) while I work on my second Antarktis shawl in Fibre Co's Meadow. I finished knitting my Seashore Cowl as well as a little Marple dress for Evie. I'm really happy with both of these projects and thoroughly enjoyed knitting them. For the dress, I used Luna Grey yarn in lovely Blush colour. Luna Grey yarns are among my favourites for clothing.

Je réfléchis à ce que je vais faire avec ma nouvelle laine Canopy de Fibre Co. Je trouve ce jaune magnifique (la couleur c'est "Mango")! Je travaille aussi sur mon deuxième châle Antarktis avec la "Meadow" de Fibre Co. J'ai terminé mon châle Seashore ainsi qu'une petite robe pour Evie (Marple) et je suis très contente des résultats. J'ai beaucoup aimé tricoter ces deux projets. La petite robe est tricotée avec la laine Luna Grey que je trouve parfaite pour les vêtements.

Evie has been taking many long baby naps in her Snug As A Bug sleep sack. I don't think there is a more peaceful activity than knitting quietly next to a sleeping babe. Bliss!

Evie fait beaucoup de longs dodos dans son sac de couchage (Snug As A Bug). Je ne crois pas qu'il existe une activité plus paisible que de tricoter tranquillement à côté d'un bébé qui dort. Quel bonheur!

Crafting On

Glad to be joining Nicole again for Crafting On...

I've almost finished working on a Seashore Cowl for myself for spring/summer with yarns from my favourite Riverside Studio and Ginny's hand dyed fingering in Hopi red and Amaranth. Ginny's peachy pink yarn reminds me of a lazured Waldorf kindergarten room. I think this cowl will come in handy while nursing and the colours are nice and soft for baby...

I've also been updating my Ravelry page with lots of baby knits for those interested.

Happy crafting on!

Keep Calm Craft On: Blue Sweater and Shawl

Joining Nicole at Frontier Dreams for Keep Calm Craft On…

finished blue sweater for S, I'm so happy with it and the gorgeous Wooly Moss Roots buttons just pop against the blue yarn (I love this yarn and it's the most perfect shade of blue!)

and another finished shawl… Another gorgeous blue, mixed with rich browns. The colour is Vandyke and the yarn is my favourite for shawls, I've used it several times before. It's hand dyed Riverside Studios and her colours are the most amazing that I've ever come across. I tried adding a bit of Haiku yarn for the trim on this shawl, but then decided I preferred to just stick with the Riverside yarn throughout.

Happy crafting on!
