It's Poncho weather

This winter is pretty bizarre. Since December I've traveled a bit around Europe always finding sunny days and warm weather. Last month, passing the Alps I couldn't see a bit of snow. How weird. I mean it's pretty cool, because the weather is really mild, but very strange.

Anyway all this warm weather makes me want to make plenty of ponchos!
And once again I go back to Viva Poncho looking for inspiration. What about the pinky one? And the beige with a collar? It's so hard to choose!!!

Crazy baby booties

It's a baby boom! Everybody around me is having babies, and I must find some new cute patterns for baby booties, mittens and hats. Do you have suggestions? I'm looking for something fast and funky, not the typical picot baby bootie.

I've had a look at Crochet Pattern Central, of course, and at this page and I'm trying different patterns, I'll post some pics asap, and if you have a sweet crazy pattern on your favorites, please post it here, I'd appreciate it!! :-)

Brushing, sandpapering and painting

After the Christmas rush I've put aside a little bit of knitting and crocheting, to concentrate on other activities. Here in Brittany we had such lovely days, with sunny weather and clear sky, that Vincent and I decided to seize the moment to work on Vincent's boat. In the last three days I've been brushing, sandpapering and painting it. So funny. Well it's a hard job, but I really enjoyed it. Doing this with my hands makes me feel good. So pardon me if I have neglected a bit our common passion, I'll start anew very soon, in the meanwhile, if you don't see me much online it's because I'm on the sea... painting ;-)
