THanks.. i've actually just finished a second one, with kureyon I got real cheap on Ravelry..  :-)
 
I made a small this time, but it may be a bit too fitted this time...

I love it already anyway, I'm sure I'll wear it a lot ! :-)

22  My latest FOs: Violaine top for me and a beret for her in Crochet: Completed Projects by SylvChezPlum on: March 06, 2008 01:14:04 AM
After making child's tops for my daughters, I have just finished an adult version for myself, woohoo !! :-)

I'm really so happy of how it turned out, after, let me see... ripping it 3 or 4 times !!  ;-P
Here's the final result:



And here are the in-progress pics, in between each ripping and restarting..  :-P

(it closes in the back with 2 oversized buttons, as seen in last pic)

I'm also really surprised that I only used 3 hanks of Malabrigo merino worsted for it !!  :-D

And next, here's a little beret I finished yesterday, claimed by my little girl. She just looked too cute in it, plus she really needed a new hat ! (It's a little loose so it'll fit her great next winter)


Hope you like them !

Love the first scarflette! Cute design!

Thanks ! I actually made a second one since, still with malabrigo. So warm and soft, I just LOVE this yarn (bought tons of it lately too in a large range of colors... Mmm !)

24  Banjo bag and tons of Roselette tops !! in Crochet: Completed Projects by SylvChezPlum on: December 04, 2007 12:11:58 PM
So, here's my semi-annual Crafster post..  ;-)
But I have a lot to show, can't stop crocheting these days !

First is my Banjo Bag, made in a mad rush before a deadline for a french swap (I'm french). I had thought over the design for a couple weeks though, but I'm still glad it all worked out well. Made it in 2 days, it was still damp when I posted it to the Craft fair it was to be showcased at in Paris...  :-P

The strap is just buttoned onto the bag. Funny how I find all sorts of idea to use up all the buttons I've been collecting lately !!  :-P

Then there's this little girl's top (I call it Roselette). I've already made 4 and am working on the fifth right now. They're so quick and enjoyable to make. Plus I LOVE how they look on my girls...   :-D


Hope you like them..  :-)

25  Dancing poppies scarf and scarflette in Crochet: Completed Projects by SylvChezPlum on: October 30, 2007 11:33:57 AM
Wow, I still can't believe I have 2 FOs to show, and only a couple weeks after starting or so..
I first had the idea for those several months ago after seing a similar circles motif on a very vintage bedspread. Then started on it, wasn't too sure of the edging I'd use, plus it kind of took forever with the yarn I used then...

Then suddenly this month I had the inspiration for those little "dancing poppies" and decided to use a heavier yarn and larger hook..

And Voil !! I first finished the scarflette, so soft, cozy and warm (I used Malabrigo "worsted merino" for both)


and then scarf took stlightly longer:
   

I'm just so happy with them !!  :-D  I've even started another crochet scarf now.. I'm just addicted to that "scuplural" aspect of crochet !

26  Finally some Cactus Mitts for myself !! in Knitting: Completed Projects by SylvChezPlum on: October 18, 2007 01:42:18 AM
I made tons of these last winter, finally a pattern I can't get enough of..    They're just so quick it's more than instant gratification !! Grin

Anywho, the other day I ran into this handspun yarn by our very own Rachel-marie on Etsy and the colors were SO calling my name I had to buy it !!

Then the day I received the yarn I couldn't resist and cast on right away... Of course I started knitting two right  mittenettes so it took a little more.. but Ta Da !! My first winter FO this year !!  Grin Grin
(I'm just so happy because I have so little knitting time this year..  Tongue )

Sorry for the funny look, I was holding the camera remote-control in my mouth..  ;-P

Specs:
Pattern  : Cactus Mittenettes by ChezPlum
Yarn: Handspun by Rachel Marie at KnittyDirtyGirl.com
Needles: US8 (5 mm) straight needles, + 4 same size dpns for thumbs (that's another reason why I love those so much, they're knitted flat)

They're super warm, and I have one hank left.. so I'm now planning a matching hat !!  Wink

27  My striped Baby Bolero from One Skein in Knitting: Completed Projects by SylvChezPlum on: August 19, 2007 11:44:42 AM
12 days ago my niece was born and I suddenly felt the urge to knit something for her... I wanted to try the Baby Bolero from One Skein, and after deciding the yarn and a couple days knitting.. Here it is !!



On top of the stipes I made a couple mods on the pattern; Changed the decreases and increases, no eyelet motif of course (busy enough with those stripes!), added some shaping to the sleeve holes (I hated how the original boxy look) and replaced the ribbing with a simple crochet edging...

All in all I loved making it, so quick and a nice pattern, and Love the final result. I'm sending it tomorrow to my SIL, I hope she'll like it too !

I don't think I would have had the guts to undo something I spent so much time on, no matter what I thought of it!
Ha, I guess it's become second nature to me.. I keep on unraveling stuff again and again each time I design something new.. like right this moment I'm knitting directly from unraveling my first time..as usual..   Tongue

29  Some Aussie fauna in Crochet: Completed Projects by SylvChezPlum on: August 03, 2007 05:01:44 AM
I finished those a month or two ago, all from patterns by Crochetroo.

 

They were really fun to make, and I still want to make a Salty Croc, maybe a full pair of the super cute Koala Booties.. Oh and I need to make another Gecko for my SIL too..  ;-)

30  Plumetis or the "finally-it-fits" cardi ... in Knitting: Completed Projects by SylvChezPlum on: August 03, 2007 04:40:29 AM
oops sorry for the huge pics, if sbdy knows how to make smaller clickable icons on blogger..? (haven't used them for ages :-?)

So about a year and a half ago I started working on a green cotton blend cardi. I decided on a lace pattern, basic semi-cropped shape, deep square neckline... and cast on.

At the time I was 6 months pregnant. I don't know what I was thinking but I figured I'd make it somehow a bit larger so it'd fit for the last stages of pregnancy + nursing..

 
But.. as always it took longer to knit than first planned and by the time I was finished my baby girl was born... And the cardi came out HUGE, didn't look nice at all (my partner said it looked like a potato sack on me..and I agreed despite the hard work !! ). Even the sleeves (meant to be nice 3/4 length) looked by butterfly wings.. but not in a nice way !


So this spring I frogged it all and started again, this time carefully taking all my measurements, decided on another shape & style in between... and TaDa !! This time it fits like a glove, I'm so happy !!
I think it's my favorite handknit garment ever..!!  :-D
