Yes, I have a confession!  I now have a stash ;-)  I've resisted long enough but lately, I've been spoiled with a few sweet gifts ;-) plus the Tanis Year in Color Club 2012 that I can't quite keep up with ;-) plus a visit at the alpaga farm ;-)

First, there was an early birthday gift from Andi!

Then, on my birthday, Chantal really spoiled me with a skein of Tanis Fiber Arts Blue Label Fingering Weight in color Thrills and a beautiful skein of Sephyra Life in color Grand'ma Pie:

I know what the first one will become (I have a good friend at work who is pregnant!)  and the second one will certainly become some beautiful socks!

Then the two last Tanis Year in Color Club 2012 haven't been knitted yet but they are beautiful:

The first one comes with a pattern from Jared Flood and the second one with one from Alana Dakos!  I really look forward to knit them!

Finally, I bought these two skeins of alpaga yarn from the Les Alpagas de la Petite Côte:

These will become a winter hat or mittens of course.  The color is natural and it is so so soft!
So all of this being said and shown, I'd better go back to my needles because there is a lot of work in the knitting area planned!
I hope you all having a wonderful weekend!  Thank you so much for visiting my blog! xx

FO: Andrea's Shawl

I bought a new camera yesterday!  Mine was broken and quite old I must say.  It's kind of difficult to get used to a new camera, but it's supposed to be twice as good so... ;-)

Here is my latest FO!  The yarn and the pattern was given to me by my good "tricopine"  (in French, it's a contraction of the words "knitting" and "friend") Andi from My Sister's Knitter.  Thank you so much Andi, I've really enjoyed working on that project!  You really made my day twice with those awesome gifts!

Really nice pattern, well written and very wearable in that color!


Needles: US 7 / 4.5 mm (circular)
Color: Impressionist sky
Start to finish: January 2012 - November 2012
For: Me.
Notes: Just made in one color (no stripes).
For some unexplained reason, I was very bad at keeping track of the needle size and pattern size.  When I picked up the project in October to finish it, I was so confused ;-)  Write Maryse write ;-)
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
