    Nancy Marchant is THE QUEEN of brioche knitting. She did not invented it but she made it bright and shiny and what everyone wants to knit for the past few years. She has written several books about it but my favourite is this one. {Note: This post will be available to everyone one year from today. Until then, only Patreon subscribers can view it.

    One of the tool I use the most is my sock blockers. Do you need sock blockers? The true answer is no except if you’re knitted socks from non-superwash fibers or if you want to be able to make pretty sock pictures. Are the KnitPro sock blockers a good choice if you still want to purchase some? Absolutely! {Note: This post will be available to everyone one year from today.

    The WIP pile

    by Tisserin Coquet

    With all the designs I published these past few years, I did not had or take the time to finish it and kept knitting samples instead. Which means, I have A LOT of WIPs started years ago. Well, this ends now! At the end of the year, I want to be down to only two WIPs.

    I’m a true single-ply yarn lover. I think that actually at least 30% of my stash is singles. Maybe even 40%. So obviously I have quite a few skeins of Madelinetosh Merino Light in it as it’s one of the well-known brand and quality for 1-ply yarns! {Note: This post will be available to everyone one year from today.

    Eyeblink shawl

    by Tisserin Coquet

    Back in December, I wanted a simple no-brain one-skein knit. And for once, not a sock. While browsing Ravelry, I found the Eyeblink shawl pattern by Heidi Alander. Lots of stocking stitch, a simple increase rate to create the crescent shape, and a nice small lace repeat. Sounds lovely, isn’t it?

    Fiskars Scissors

    by Tisserin Coquet

    One of the oldest needlework tool I own is my Fiskars scissors. The little fabric case you see in the following picture was made by my nanny, so you can guess how old they are! Since then, I purchased several other scissors from Fiskars (all in their iconic trademarked orange). Are they as sharp as everyone says? Do they worth it?
