L’aiguille en Fete- Paris Exhibition

A wonderful but exhausting time in north Paris last week exhibiting at L’Aiguille en Fetes. Paris shows open until  pm so we had no time at night to do anything but eat dinner afterward. Managed to stuff in all my favorites however.

French clients were fabulous, most notably Francois who visited me on 2 different days and by the time I had returned had finished 1 pair of mitts with my new supersoft merino superwash:

formidable,n’cest pas ( my pigeon french..)

managed terrible french throughout- although I am still thinking numbers in French and can count to 100 quite quickly now. Hopefully will be able to pronounce ” la laine” correctly next time.

Unusually for moi, the trip passed without any major drama.  Am inordinately proud of the fact that I negotiated a right hand manual van throughout France without incident. In all, fun, fun ,fun. Debonnaire retournera!

  1. Thank you so much for the kind comment about me, and showing the left mitt. Your Merino Superwash is really nice to work with, soft and incredibly warm. I will definitely get more form you. And so.. see you next year in Paris 🙂

    (I’m probably the second guy you’ve meet, I didn’t made a mitten during this exhibit but I made lovely ponpon with your machine !)

  4. […] had enough with one hank to knit a pair of mittens that Erica displayed on her own blog! This is not my own design, I should put a link to it… Right-hand mitten in Merino […]

  5. […] écheveau m’a suffit pour tricoter une paire de mitaines  qu’Erica a affichée sur son propre blog ! Ce n’est pas ma propre cération, il faudrait que je mette un lien vers le modèle… […]
