See you in 2017!

While on the blog you will read few more suggestions to make this Christmas even more Christmassy, today, 13th December 2016, is the last chance you have to order material goods from the shop.

Ordering by today will ensure you, hopefully, a Christmas delivery.

This year I have decided to stress less and close everything down until the New Year.

Beside the fact that we are leaving for holiday on Friday to a location with no easy internet access, I have also decided to give myself time off.

2016 was a difficult year on many fronts and I need to recharge my body and my soul. We are going to a faraway (for us) country we have always dreamed to visit, and take things as they are and as they come to us.

I am still pondering if to bring or not any knitting. 10 hours on a plane without knitting seems arduous to manage, even with books and movies…

The need of a reboot is this year more persistent than anything else. So maybe knitting will stay home.

Happy holidays!

And to a wonderful 2017!

Among the selections of gift under 20€ there is one I am particularly proud of 🙂

It’s a Travel notion pouch, designed with the travelling knitter in mind (aka me)!

Tavel Notion Pouch

I often travel with my knitting, to knitting festivals or holidays alike. And I often need a simple, small pouch to store all the basic notions I need in order to be prepared if I need to change needles, a quick yarn cut or to wave in ends.

In this compact pouch (smaller then a A5 agenda) you can easily store all your essentials: scissors, interchangeable needles and their cables. It is also perfect to store away your double points needles set.

Completely handmade by me, from concept to the final product, it is now available in a very small batch of 100% French cotton.

In 2017 I plan to make more and in different cotton fabrics, carefully chosen and assembled.

This neat pouch is perfect for a knitter, but also for anyone else: for pens, compact make up or anything you want to neatly store.

It’s a fun, thoughtful gift, handmade with love 🙂
