Concours Mélusine Tricote!

Mais pourquoi est-ce que j'ai besoin de pelotes?

Pour m'évader bien sûr!

Attacher chaque brin de laine à un autre, les lier. Les consolider avec le crochet, faire une loooooonnnnggguuuueeeeee chaine au crochet.
Puis se croire au Texas, faire une boucle, faire tourner et lancer le lasso très haut, très haut pour attraper un nuage.

Un beau cumulonimbus doux et duveteux, assez grand pour être confortable. La partie la plus dure arrive. Grimper. Grimper maille par maille, pelote par pelote pour arriver aux pays des rêves. Se hisser sur le nuage, trouver ses appuis sur les éclairs, s'asseoir sur la rosée du nuage.

Se laisser guider par le vent loin au-dessus des mers, voir les baleines comme de petites mouches sauter et pulvériser de l'eau autour d'elles.
Aller à Hawaii, regarder les surfeurs, encore plus minuscules affronter la vague. Rendre visite à la cousine à Rio. Monter en Alaska et essayer de distinguer les ours blancs qui marchent lentement dans leur monde glacé... et craché sur Sarah Palin si l'occasion se présente... Pourquoi pas!

Et enfin, attérir après encore un long voyage sur les côtes pluvieuses de l'Ecosse. Lentement se laisser transporter par la pluie, un peu comme un toboggan. Et s'asseoir frissonante dans une salle bien chauffée avec un pull... fait de 12 pelotes.

amd with the march sun I come back

Hello everybody!

I've been soooo away these last days, weeks, months! No time and actually no energy to thinkof more than what does essential living (so that was loads of exam thinking in fact!)

I've still managed to keep an eye on your blogs, quite snowy still it seems, like at the Gephart! And that finally the Garden Bell has been flying south. Spring seems to come at Marigolds' and in the Attic24 too! Lovely! Hope you're all well and starting this new year with a great kick!

so, I have so many things to catch up, I don't even know where to start.

So since we talked last, I've been to Sweden, where all the time went to snowshovelling! It was great! And I came back yesterday from Valencia where we met the sun and the beach. It did really good!

Unfortunately no pictures (yet?) because they're all on my Iphone.

I did pass my exams too. 4.5/6. Not bad, I'm happy!

But what I have pictures of, is this big crochet project that is finished.

You know that some time ago I bought these amazing yarns for actually nothing, remember? Well I wanted to do something REALLY special with all this yarn! But what? And there was so much. So it had to be a big, time and yarn consuming project.

Then whilst surfing around on Ravelry I found the PERFECT project. But the tutorial was for knitting. So I started with my own little knowledge:

- The Ripple pattern from the Attic, that I've already exercised on lovely little Weeble (see 4 articles below)
- My body and it's tricky parts (a very narrow wait but large hips)

And then I started. Bottom-up. And it came out beautiful. I LOVE it!

Okay, I won't make you wait any longer! Here it is!

So I'll leave you with a last picture of my pride-project (yes I still can't believe that I made it :P) And I hope to see you soon again! Take care!
