Looking for something else, I've just found this wonderful site for the vintage knitter that sleeps in us ! Yummy isn't it ?  Wink
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Ribbon embroidery pouch on: December 15, 2008 08:59:07 AM
I made this little pouch for a swap. I hadn't made any ribbon embroidery for about a year and I enjoyed it.

3  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / My first weaving project on: July 10, 2008 06:30:33 AM
Some women ask for jewels or perfumes for their birthday. I asked for a small loom. So my parent's gift for my 40th birthday last month was a 32' Ashford Rigid Heddle loom. I didn't manage to try it before yesterday. And this is my first scarf, pure acrylic as I didn't want to spoil nice yarn for my first go. But finally it's a nice fabric, very soft. I love the variegated yarn of the warp. I think I'll get more !

4  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / How many heddles do I need ? on: May 17, 2008 07:14:48 AM
Hi ! I'm planning to buy an Ashford RH loom very soon and wonder which heddle sizes are the most useful. I'll buy le second hedle kit, so i'll have to purchase an second 40/10 heddle. But are the over sizes (20/10, 30/10, 50/10) imprecindible (heddles are quite expensive...) . What do you think ? I'm planning to weave fabric for garments and purses, shawls etc. BTW I'm a spinner, so I'll use my handspun for weft (as well as commercial yarns of course). Thanks for your advices.
5  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / About diz on: May 13, 2008 03:40:15 AM
I am thinking of making a DIY diz, but I have never seen "a reel one". How big are the holes ? I heard something about 3 mm... Do you think using one of these stone "donuts" they sell as pendants would do it or would the hole be too large ? Thanks for your ideas.
6  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / spinning silk ? on: April 26, 2008 12:25:45 AM
I have some tussah silk roving (about 4 oz) and I absolutely don't want to spoil it... How should I spin it ? I mean : should I card it or spin direct from the roving ?
7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Help needed ! How much is it ? on: April 12, 2008 01:58:01 PM
Hello everybody ! I found a nice cookie recipe on the net. I'd like to try it, but... But it says "1 stick butter", and I have no idea how much is a stick of butter in the US ! I'm sure you can help me ! Thanks !  Smiley
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help needed with a Rowan pattern on: March 28, 2008 04:53:47 AM
My mom has the new Rowan magazine Nr 43, in french. I'd like to knit the Purity shawl, but I really don't understand the explanations. I'm afraid the translation is not perfect. Could somebody scan me these explanations in english ? Maybe I could understand it better... I would appreciate it a lot. Thanks for reading.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My almond green coat on: March 20, 2008 04:58:04 AM
Here is my new coat for the spring. Let's hope it will come soon (it's really cold today in France) !
I found the pattern in the winter 2002 Phildar catalog. It's only 2 pieces : easy and fun to knit ! And the chunky yarn goes so fast !

What do you think of it ?
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Vintage Craft Projects / a 1975 magazine on: February 14, 2008 02:09:58 PM
I bought this great french crafty magazine some weeks ago on Ebay. It's the issue number 16 of february 1975. I love the main title, slightly subversive (it says "beware of little girls who knit"...). I remember very well this magazine as my mom used to buy it every month (it has been published til the late '80s, about 1987 or so). It was really creative and modern and fun. Sorry to say that no other french magazine can compare with it nowadays. 

I posted more pics on my blog if you want to have a look. There's a wonderful quilted jacket and a very pretty coat. 33 years old and no wrinkle !   Wink
