I have finished spinning and plying my Harlequin Bites from Fondant Fibre towards a baby blanket. I also started spinning on a mini from Hilltop Cloud to spin more for this blanket.
I have decided to knit the Pop Blanket, by Tin Can Knits, and have purchased some scrumptious undyed Cyrano from De Rerum Natura for the background of the squares.

  1. Bonsoir Isabelle,
    Je suis très contente d’avoir pris le temps de regarder ton podcast. Cela faisait un moment que je ne l’avais pas fait. Et voilà pourquoi maintenant je préfère ton podcast en vidéo plutôt qu’en audio. Cela “m’oblige” à m’arrêter pour te regarder et t’écouter. Bien sûr en même temps je peux faire un peu de tricot, mais je suis obligée d’être assise pour regarder ta vidéo. Donc ça coupe ma journée et me permet en plus de t’écouter plus calmement, et donc je comprends mieux ce que tu dis.
    Toutes mes félicitations à toi et à ton mari pour les petits pieds qui poussent. La couleur que tu as choisi pour son futur cardigan est vraiment très joli.
    Porte-toi bien ainsi que toute ta petite famille.
    Bises
    Nadia.
