We're having spectacular weather.

At the Parc Bourran this Sunday (where I got a raging allergy attack. But, Spring!):

In knitting news, a customer wanted a close fitting cowl to match her Camila hat, and I came up with this:


I like it so much I'm putting it in the shop.

"A" for Apple Pie


Ah, winter. How I love thee! Because I get to use my oven. A lot. All the time, practically. When it's summer and you don't got an air conditioner and you live in France your oven takes a little break when the weather gets warm. But for now, the weather is poor. And I'm baking so much I've got flour on the ceiling.

Above, an apple pie. Your basic. Mine has an apple filling that contains sucre canne complet non raffiné (the sugar of many names: Sucanat, rapadura, etc...the one that is not refined at all and has some nutritional value to it) and a crust of white whole wheat pastry flour and 60% butterfat butter, something which I think does not exist in the States. No, it is not margarine. It is butter. Just made with 60% butterfat instead of your 82% (in France) butter, which makes me feel a little less guilty when I eat it. You can get the recipe at Martha Stewart, just make the swaps that I did. The filling is basically 8-10 granny smith apples cored and sliced tossed with about a tablespoon of lemon juice, some cinnamon, about 1/4 cup of sucre canne complet, a tablespoon or two of whole wheat flour and some small pats of the lower fat butter. It's still a rich dessert, but just a little bit better for you.

When I'm not baking, I'm obviously knitting. A customer ordered the loose braids cowl in cream and I thought you'd like to see it. Neutrals are fabulous, aren't they?


Order a loose braids cowl right here. If you want to make your own loose braids cowl, the knitting pattern is also for sale in my shop.

P.S. I joined Instagram. Find me here:

Where did my January go?


Spring is around the corner. Which I'm kind of looking forward to, because it has been raining in Bordeaux. That's nice if you like to stay indoors and drink hot chocolate, but not so nice if you're like me and like to walk everywhere, everyday. My hooded jacket and umbrella are getting some quality time with me right now.

Chit chat aside, I have a little treat: Starting today there is 15% off selected items in my shop. Prices are already marked down. You can browse all sale items here (more may be added over the next week):

Some of these items are in very limited edition or the last available. Even if I resurrect a design, it may not be in the same color or in the same yarn.

Wait, there's more. Until January 31 and if your order is above 75€, you can combine promotions by using the free shipping code HAPPYNEWYEAR2014. As an exception, this can be applied to both sale items and regular priced items. Yay.
