Nouveau boléro, un super petit modèle qui a contribué à vider mes stocks de laine : Anthropologie-Inspired Capelet, trouvé sur Ravelry, et qui monte très vite aux aiguille n°10. J’ai usé tout mes restes de grosse laine finlandaise, un souvenir de voyage datant de 2 ou 3 ans.
New FO, an adorable stash-buster project : Anthropologie-Inspired Capelet, that I found on Ravelry. I used Pirtin Kehräämö Hahtuvalanka yarn, which was a souvenir from my trip in finland 2 or 3 years ago, and 10 mm needles. A very fast and satisfying project.
Par contre, pas facile de prendre de bonnes photos du gilet porté sans personne pour tenir l’appareil…
But taking pictures alone was quite challenging…
I just finished the boléro I made for my cousin’s wedding… 3 days after the wedding. It sucks. But the finished boléro is a lovely little lace wrap, perfect for summer nights and looks great with a dress or a skirt. I’m wearing it almost every night.
I used buttons I found on this website. They are really lovely, made of wood, and they were really cheap. I bought a lot of other ones.
I finished the first sleeve, but I wasn’t satisfied at all. My pattern is terrible, it’s the last time I’m making a boléro like that, but this cotton is just awesome (again).
It didn’t look good on me, plus the stitch was very time and yarn consumming. So I frogged it. I made a swatch with some leftover yarn from my mitts, and chose a new stitch. And the swatch ended up as a crown for my little monkey !
I just finished the body yesterday, only the sleeves remain. I made a picot-edging I learn on this amazing website. It’s in french, but with a lot of pictures. I really love crochet, and I’m learning a lot with this boléro.
A little wrap/bolero for my best friend.
I used spare yarn from the Acorn shawl and from the Celtic cabled jacket.
I went to La Droguerie for the buttons, and I just love those tiny acorns. It was so difficult choosing them among all the other cute buttons ! This wrap also was my first seamless knitting. I was measuring on myself all the time, but the problem was that Camille wasn’t as tall than me… Finally, I offered her the bolero for her birthday and it fitted her quite good. Ouf !
