See, sometimes, you've got things that are cute and they are tiny.
But sometimes cute goes XXXL.
Last weekend was the final round up of a French Art Festival (Pourquoi pas?) which had lasted since February. Obviously, it had to end with something extraordinaire. And so it did.
A huge marionette stamped through the city, incidentally looking for her father, the giant.
He left hints and traces where to find him.
There's a knife in that bus!
It is such a funny idea and I was amazed that such a "simple" show can lure thousands of people onto the street. I mean, in times of Godzilla digitally remastered and all. It was literally great!
I think, for a couple of days you can still follow this link to see the news footage on the giant little girl's stroll through town.
But back to the little things. These baby booties are made out of scraps from Regia rainbow stripes I received from Judy in the good old sock scrap swap (September 2005!).
The design is by Dorothee from d.knit, you can find a link to the pdf file on her site.
Aren't they sweet? My new friend, the neighbour's kitten, thinks so.
I also have some normal size knitting to show. Long way back when it was time for
Toasty Toes, I liked the socks I knitted for Cynthia so much that I decided to made myself a sibling pair.
Same pattern, same yarn (Kid Mohair/Merino Sock Yarn from Crown Mountain Farms) different colour ("More Teals"). They are almost too warm for May, even in our climate.
Talking about socks.. uhm, who is talking about anything else these days, anyway?
I have heard from my sockapalooza pal via comments but forgot to mention it the other day.
Hi Pal, thanks for reassuring me, there's somebody out there knitting for me!There seems to be some confusion this time with the contacting part. All the previous rounds have been quite silent and secretive on this matter, haven't they? But with over 1.000 participants it is quite understandable that people get nervous.
Okay Pal. Your comment is very much appreciated but please don't feel like you have to contact me. I know it can be a bit tricky trying not to give your identity away or you might just not be the secret message person. That's okay. Because, I know you are there now and trust in getting socks in the end ;-) Thanks.Before I take action in the sockapalooza business myself, I thought I'd sign up for a challenge.
To warm up, you know. I am going to knit a sock in a day! This sounds
