The complete tools, finally

After years of frustrated desire, I finally got my own wooden yarn shift and winder. And I got them at the very best price possible. For the swift I bet on eBay and got one for 25,00 $, instead of the 50$ asked everywhere else. The winder, I got it from Knitpicks for only 19.00 $!

Both sellers where serious and fast so I'm pretty happy with my purchases and I spent all yesterday making pull-thorugh yarn balls! Happily ;)

The Yarn Addiction

How is that possible that every time I cross a yarn store, offline and online, I cannot refrain from buying loads of yarn? I don't even have space in my house for all those yarn balls!! Someone help me!

Are you like me too?

I've got a French Knitter

After a few videos on youtube I figured out how to use it, but I'm still not sure what can I do with it, any suggestions?

Back to knits

I've been absent lately but that's because it took me some time to adapt to the new Chicago life and now that I did, I can go back to knitting. As you can see from my Ravelry dashboard I'm up to some relaxing stuff, especially the lovely Shawl Collared Cowl, a simple yet very clever pattern by Never not knitting.

So, little by little, I try to get back on tracks. And what are YOU knitting right now?

Preparing for a sabbatical 5 months of knitting

Starting April the 3rd I'll be on a sabbatical leave for 5 months! In the last months all I could think is: what will I knit with all this spare time in my hands?

Well it's very difficult to choose, so I ask you:

-Shall I finish my Icelandic sweather I've started 1 year ago?
-Shall I complete an afghan blanket I've started 2 years ago?
-Shall i crochet a human-size amigurumi?
-Shall I start something very challenging completely new?

What would you do?

Ferragamo crochet dress

How lovely is this Salvatore Ferragamo SS 11 crochet dress? I love it! Sure on a model everything looks great, but I think this would fit lovely on everyone. Don't you think?
