Why the cupcakes?

It's the last day of the year 2010. Unconsciously, I did a summary of this past year. I say unconsciously, but hearing everybody around me doing the same helps! I heard that 2010 was a disastrous year. Well, I had a wonderful year! I opened my Etsy boutique (which needs a good lifting...), I published new designs, I got awesome readers and my knitting and my blog is doing great. I started studying german, which was a dream, I'm in love, I have marvelous friends, I like my job and the people I'm working with. Everything is working so great! And I can't thank you enough for reading my blog, making nice comments on my work and loving my designs. I love you too.

And so, my boyfriend is working today, he's coming back from work at 5h p.m., then we have guests for dinner and then it's off to the party! This is why I made yummy pear-cinnamon cupcakes.

Happy new year 2011 everyone! See you next year!

Notions Provisional Cast-On

There is no better way to end 2010 than with a new release. I am really, really happy to present to you all, my newest design, Émilien. I received a surprisingly big amount of positive comments in the previous post where I talk about Émilien, so I am very excited about this release!

Émilien is, in my opinion, the perfect boyfriend cardigan. The lines are slim and clean, the zip closure and the hood are practical, and all that stockinette keeps it simple.

The top-down construction and the stockinette stitch require not much attention. Perfect for an evening in front of the television. Since the cardigan is knitted with a worsted weight yarn, it goes quickly! Ideal for January and post holidays knitting!

Dear readers, this is my Christmas gift to you! I know I haven't been around much lately. I was planning on spending more time on my knitting and on my blog after my finals, but it seems that I keep myself busy even without school! So, I know I'm late, but Happy Holidays! Stay tuned, I will have a What's Hot on Ravelry post soon, and some new year's knitting resolutions....

Béthanie, Quentin and Phébée

You may remember that, in one of my last post, I said that I needed to make three scarves before December 15th, despite studying for my finals. Well, be proud of me people, because I made it, and with spare time! I had already knitted Béthanie when I made the post, but now Quentin and Phébée are also done! Yay me! As I am writting, they are on their way to Germany!

2.00 US

Let's start with a quick refresh of Béthanie, a stylish yet simple infinity scarf. I really love the way it stays right on your face, protecting you from the cold wind. The bulkiness of the Cascade Ecological Wool really makes this scarf a good, quick, appreciated Christmas gift!

Quentin is a really, really simple unisex scarf. This pattern is for the knitter who is running out of time! Knitted with a super bulky weight yarn, it is knitted up fast fast fast! The stitch used creates a smooshy, squishy fabric. And again, this scarf is a great unisex gift.

Phébée - infinity scarf


Phébée is a feminine, gorgeous infinity scarf, like its sister Béthanie. The concept is the same, but the delicate stitch used here creates a proper stylish effect. The Cascade Eco + makes it soft and warm. So, it's two birds one stone: style and winter protection!

The three patterns are available separately or together, in the French Canadian Knits Quick Christmas Gifts ebook, available throught Ravelry on throught my Etsy boutique!
