Knitting Beginner with We Are Knitters

Hello DIYers,

A while ago, we had to opportunity to try the knitting kits from We Are Knitters. [Note: the company contacted us to try their products. As we were very happy, we decided to talk about it here (there was no deal with We Are Knitters, we could just have both a knitting kits if we wanted to).]
Marine and I both got a beginner kit in our hands and we reacted very differently to it. Marine tried but didn’t commit to it (she had to do different kind of stitches and what was supposed to be easy became complicated) when I enjoyed it (well, I had only one kind of stitches…). After many evenings knitting, I finally got something…

Curious to see how I did it? Discover the steps below…

Hey DIYers,

A few weeks ago, our friend Meggan from Fouettmagic was celebrating her upcoming birthday (it’s in 3 months but she wanted to take advantage of the summer this year, who will blame her?). She is almost 30, a perfect excuse to gather friends in her beautiful garden. As Marine wanted to offer a very personal gift, she created a special label to cover the bottle of a good sparkling wine she had bought for the occasion. As always, we wanted to share this with you. (Download the label at the end of this post.)
