Le Bon Fifi


After a long hiatus, I am back to my blog! Fortunately, the needles haven't been as silent as my keyboard.


First up, the new "Fifi". I had some Calmer languishing in the stash, and came across this pattern at a LYS. Check out the French Girl website, they have some really creative things. Anyway, here she is: I added about 2 inches to the length, to hide the mid-section pudge and it is still fairly cropped. I knit the size small, because they suggest going smaller for "negative ease"....which really means nice and form-fitting, if you like that sort of thing. (Which sometimes I do, sometimes I don't....) The Hub was impressed with how it accentuated my assets.....
This was my second try at knitting something from the top down, the first being Rusted Root, which I'll show off another day. Whaddya think? The best part is that I still have 5 -6 balls of Calmer left~! So much for stash-busting.....

Fifi is beautiful! I'm envious of all the Fifi's out there. I don't think I'm the right shape for one. But, you certainly are and it looks and fits great!
