There is not a day without finding a way to knit a knit. I even saw myself knitting standing in the subway at rush hour! Knitting relaxes my mind using my creativity and decreasing frustrations of wasting my time. It is more than pleasure, it is a passion and an accomplishment. I love simple knitting patterns with a refined detail. The latter often allows me an interesting challenge and learning a new technique while still being able to do most of the work in public. I am increasingly interested in models that require little or no assembly and finishing. I like the natural and very soft fibers that age in beauty. Merino wool has my favor. For some years, I also discovered it with happiness mixed with cotton or silk. I like fine wool, but since the birth of my son in 2014, I more appreciate the worsted wool that has a fairly fine appearance while knitting quickly. One day I will have the time and experience to create sober and feminine models that will showcase luxurious fibers.
