No FO :)

It's been a while since I posted without having an actual FO to show.  That was before my daughter was born.  Lately, I've had a little more time to knit.  Not that much more time but maybe I will also have more time to blog!

I'm not saying this is going to be a long post!  I still have to get up early tomorrow morning :)

So, recently, one of my high school friend visited me.  Last year, she went to Iceland and as she knew I love to knit, she bought me a beautiful skein of yarn!  I have no idea what it will become - probably a winter accessory - but I really like it.  Thank you so much Isabelle (she is not even a knitter and we don't see each other very often either)!

Then, last year, I gave away all my yarn leftovers to a lovely lady in Alberta.  I was really relieved because I do not like to keep things that I don't use.  In that same order of idea, I also try to knit all my yarn.  This is why I started the two following projects:

1. Aviatrix Hat with the leftovers from this shawlette:

2. Easy Peasy Newborn Sock Hat with the leftovers of these recently completed socks:

3. I did not cast on for this one yet, but my sister has asked me for a pair of socks for quite a while.  The other weekend, we chose the yarn and pattern. Here is the colorway:

I can't wait to cast on. I'm debating whether I should finish the two projects above before or at least finish one or knit all three projects at the same time :)

Well, this is all I have for now... and my bedtime has passed.  Sorry for ending this post so abruptly.  I hope you understand... Good night :)

FO: Plain Vanilla Socks

Summer is still here, in September... I love it!

And it allowed me to finish these socks and show them before fall comes.  These are the Plain Vanilla Socks in the not so plain Watermelon colorway:

What a simple pattern. Almost too simple!  Perfect for this fun yarn!  I've always wanted to knit socks in that colorway from Biscotte & cie.

It was fun to take pictures in the grass. We've had such a beautiful summer. 
Here are my socks sunbathing:

I hope you all had a nice summer and that you can also continue to enjoy it for a few more days! 

Happy fall knitting!

FO: Gespeg

Hello everyone! I just wanted to drop by with an FO I finished in February.  It has been a while since I posted. Some of you have sent me emails to know how we are doing.  Thank you so much!  
My little girl has been with the cold most of winter. She's very brave. I've returned to work in early January. Work and the routine keeps me busy.  This is great!  My sweet little girl makes me so happy!
Since my bedtime has already passed, I will go directly to the point.  Here is the Gespeg hat from Ariane Caron-Lacoste.  She has beautiful patterns!
This hat was knit for my friend Mélanie who is the owner of the Alpagas de la Petite-Côte.  Of course, the hat is knitted with alpaca yarn that they produce.  It is such a warm and soft hat.  I have enough yarn to knit one for myself for... next winter now!
It was the perfect pattern for someone who does not have as much knitting time as she used to :)

See my project page on Ravelry.
I've been reading your blogs.  I do not comment as much as I used to but I certainly enjoy seeing what you are up to and admiring your beautiful pictures.

Have a wonderful end of the week!
