Happy Thanksgiving !

Several years ago, I met some precious US friends who introduced me to Thanksgiving. I made a typical Thanksgiving diner for my friends & family the next year. It seems I’m very bad to cook Thankgiving meat… so now, I usually make only some Thanksgiving crafts… Sadly, I had no time this year. As a revenge, here’s the best of Thanksgiving projects found on Pinterest : enjoy !

#KnittingForBeginners – Knit a Wool Round

Hey there ! I remember when I started knitting… At first I was so enthusiastic. Few weeks later… I was totally depressed ! Basically, I could only knit (very basic) scarfs. Once I found a nice pattern on the web but I didn’t have the right needles. Once I didn’t have the right yarn.

In the mood for a White Christmas

No real project this week-end. Actually, I *love* searching for Christmas decoration ideas on the web (OK… I’m addicted to Pinterest !). However, I also like creating my own patterns. A pen and a paper are not very helpful. So I usually keep little pieces of yarn and beads in my “draft” box : that’s my main tool to create my patterns.
