fun stuff: sunny start

i started yet another one...
this time in sunny side of the colour spectrum
with lots of yellows, reds, oranges and occasional pinks.

i'm still at the stage of seeing if this combination works
and of feeling if i am going to like it enough to continue on.
ian has been reading these books for months now, 
and i have decided to finally pick them up and join him 
to see what the fuss is all about.
my friend at our library, was kind enough to extend our use of these books 
until the day after we get back home...thanks barb!!!

 also, i'm still working through 10 minutes of french a day
it has been really helpful!!

p.s.  i haven't spotted a single knitting shop in paris (yet!?!?)

joining frontier dreams and small things


  1. I like the warm colours - it would be a lovely late summer/autumn blanket.

  2. Pretty fiber and you need to get on finding that knitting shop ;) I bet when you find one it will be amazing.

  3. glad you are starting another one, why not? I hope you do find the lys, it's a necessity!

  4. Such pretty colors! 10 minutes of French per day will get you speaking in no time!

  5. Hello: I spent 2 weeks in Paris in May 2015. I found two knit shops in the fabric district at the foot of the
    Sacre Coeur area. Very small as compared to the USA standards however very interesting. Have fun,


thank you for your kind words... they really do make my day !!!
