It's winter!

And I who thought that I had finished my hat too late to wear it this winter! Think again! Winter is not over yet!

But cold ears are gone now that I have knitted my very first tuque for myself! This one I keep!


You can see my project page on Ravelry for more details. I've modified the pattern to be less slouchy although I haven't knitted the slouchy version. I really like the end result.

I haven't washed it yet either. I'm always a bit scared that the size is going to change or the colors will be altered.

I've already made my calculations to knit a mini version for my daughter with the remaining yarn.

And since there will be more yarn left at the end, I may add some pom-poms...


To be continued :)

Good night!

FO: Peppa Scarf

Happy New Year!  I hope that 2017 is treating you well so far! I'm doing good. It's just that... time flies!

Last December, I've started a scarf for my daughter.  I bought the yarn from a new independent dyer who also happen to be a friend in my knitting group.  On Facebook, you may follow her as Colorista. The yarn I bought from her is really soft and the colors were amazing!  I recommend it!

Also, for the first time, I've knitted something without a pattern. I know, a scarf is just a scarf but still, I'm quite proud of myself. I searched for a simple scarf pattern for a baby/toddler on Ravelry and I was not able to find one I liked (maybe there are just too many patterns on Ravelry).  Just to know how many stitches to cast on and how long I should make it.  So, I've decided to write it down and share with anyone who does like to simply follow a pattern, no matter how simple the knitting is.

I have to say I really like it.  It is pretty and practical, soft and warm! I named it the Peppa Scarf if you would like to look for it on Ravelry!

I hope that winter will come to an end soon.  Scarves are great but summer is better!  Happy knitting (and mostly good night)!
