I gave in the temptation and knit a pair of Skew for myself. I love this pattern, innovative, interesting, fun, well written. Here is my version, in Schoeller+Stahl Fortissima Socka Mexiko Color

I really like the colour combination, and the Knit Picks yarn (Felici) is a joy to knit, super soft!

Introducing My New Pattern: Candy Toes

20 Apr

My Candy Toes pattern is now published on Ravelry.

Edited: this pattern is now available in French too
Modèle désormais disponible en français !

I designed these socks for those who are not keen on Fair-Isle knitting, so that they can enjoy colour-work anyway. Thanks to the slipped stitches, only one colour is ever worked on a particular row, making them particularly easy and quick to knit.

Really, believe me, they ARE easy!

Pattern costs: $1.99

More details on the pattern are available on Ravelry:

Size 1: Children M/L – Circ: 13.5 cm/5.3”
Size 2: Women S/M – Circ: 18 cm/7”
Size 3: Women L/Men S – Circ: 20.25 cm/8”
Size 4: Men M/L – Circ: 22.5 cm/9”

Knit Picks Independent Designer Program

19 Apr

I was super happy to find out that my Agate Capelet was pre-approved for the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program. This means that I now need to re-knit it in Knit Picks yarn to finalise the submission. I chose their sock yarn Felici for this pattern as I think it will work very well.

I have just started and it looks great so far, love it!

Une Souris Verte

14 Apr

There is a kid song in French called “Une souris verte”, which my boys love, we sing it every evening at bed time.

It’s the story of a green mouse (souris verte). Connor requested that I knit him a green mouse, so here it is.

Tabi Toe-Up Socks

13 Apr

I’ve just knit these socks as a test for a fellow designer and friend Shirley (Jardinrouge on Ravelry, her designer page is here). I love this pattern! It’s very easy to knit and customizable. I have made the leg part shorter than what the pattern calls for as I wanted a really low pair. I will be knitting more of these with different types of yarn. They are also a super quick knit.
