One down, no clue of how many to go

I'm finally done with the baby thing, a french grenouillère, and the baby hasn't even been born yet! I found some beautiful buttons at my LYS, turquoise mother of pearl. I must say, seeing the grenouillère hanging there brings the starfish-haired Maggie Simpson to mind. I sinecerely hope that the mother-to-be is too busy doing pregnancy things to be reading this blog.

Today is the day of the Colchique yarn procurement. After lots of consideration I've decided to go for a greyish/misty green which I think will bring out the best of the point fantasie. But before this joyeous event I have to pay my bills to be sure to afford it (like that would stop me) and read 70 pages of a book that appears to be quite boring. The thought of spending my Thursday night knitting échantillons will hopefully help me to keep the good spirit up. : )

Also, for the Cristmas lovers out there (yes Sofie, you), I've found some absolutely lovely Santa-girl (tomteflickor) kits at the hardware store next to my LYS. If I by any chance will have any money left after the yarn purchasing, this is what I'll spend it on. Adorable!

Where did you get the pattern for the french grenouillère? That is so cute!

Thanks! It's from a French pattern magazine I bought when I was there a couple of years ago. If you like it I could scan it for you, just say the word! It's quite easy, just knitting, increasing and decreasing.

I would love the pattern if it does not violate any laws there to distribute it. Alas, I am not very good with computers and I don't want to post my email address here, so I don't know how it can be done?

I am also knitting the Colchique, slowly. I am still on the back raglan decreases! I love the color you chose.

OK. Send an email to lili2874 at student dot uu dot se and we'll work it out. By the way: it's in French. Do you want it translated or can you knit in French?

And I'm also on the back raglan decrease, but I'm soon done! I can't believe knitting can make you this excited. : )
