On the needles: Squeezing in

Despite school and work, I manage to squeeze in some *small* knitting time.

Gespeg (here the prototype in some Cascade 220 leftovers from Émilien) is a crossbreed between a beret and a beanie. I love wearing hats, but berets have the unfortunate tendency to be useless in winter, and beanies don't have enough space for all my hair.

After finishing the Gespeg prototype, I wanted to test knit it, but with a truly gorgeous yarn. And, one of my knitting resolution this year was to buy some Madelinetosh for the first time. And so I did, I bought some gorgeous Madelinetosh Vintage in Isadora colorway. I love the subtle tone changes! And Isadora is a color that will be in this Spring!

Do you remember the German assistant who bought from me three scarves for Christmas? Well the recipients loved them, and now she wants one for herself! Since she's allergic to animal fibers, I'm using some Pure Cotton DK from Rowan for another Béthanie. I think I'll have to finish it soon, before Winter ends!

I'm also working on something that I can't show you... but it has a deadline!

I just love your photos! I might just have to buy the pattern for that scarf; it looks so cozy!

I am in LOVE with madelinetosh I am trying to finish up a sweater in the DK and I just finished a shawl in the merino light and a baby sweater in pashmina. I also have some Vintage that is set to be a honey cowl. Did I mention I love them?
