My little knitting savant daughter was so excited that y'all liked her purse. She wanted me to tell you thank you.

Some of y'all who have been reading my humble blog for a while know that I love French Girl patterns. I re-discovered this pattern and yarn in my stash over the weekend and whipped it up in less than three days. I apologize for the sorry excuse for a picture. Here is a better one. I'm so excited to be able to carry the entire French Girl line. I think this will make a nice store display.

Pattern: Oceane by French Girl
Yarn: Rowan Linen Print #349
Needles: Susan Bates #19 staights
Comments: Gorgeous pattern, well written, and a quick knit. This would be a good first lace pattern. This pattern would be gorgeous in Kid Silk Haze using a double strand.

That is so pretty! Now, that is a more practical scarf for my locale than the big ol' wool thing I'm working on now! I seem to have delusions that I live somewhere cold.... I do believe I must make Oceane!

I didn't realize at first from the picture how big it is -- that's lovely! And just the right warmth level for you folks down in Texas. :)

very pretty! I'm looking forward to seeing the French Girl patterns at your store. The photos on jimmybeans website are too small for me to decide if I like them

It is so pretty. So an easy beginner lace, hmmm, me reckon I should try it. I even have some kidsilk haze that I am afraid to use because of its thinness and unwilling characteristic to frog

Ditto what Laura said. I can't see the patterns very well on the website. But I can already guess I'll be buying that pattern from your new LYS from your example! Your daughter is cute. Is she hitting you up for a job yet?

That's lovely. It's so cute--you already sound like a yarn-store owner (you know, with your "good beginner lace project," "also good in this yarn" rhetoric.)

Oceane is gorgeous!! Beautiful lace and the yarn is so pretty. That would be a perfect airy wrap for Hawaii, too. ;-) With all that you have going on, I'm amazed that you still find time to knit! You and Sheryl are amazing! Take care, Amy! :-)

It's beautiful!

Is there a french girl book? Or is it just a line of patterns? I thought you posted about a book once, but I can't remember ;) You've got me all intrigued now. =)

tres chic! =)

Interesting that elegance many times means simplicity married to delicate.

LAH-ver-ly =o)

Very nice! I love lace scarves. And your daughter's purse is amazing. I'm counting the days until Sydney is coordinated enough to knit (without killing herself or her brother with the needles).

Oh, I thought I commented yesterday but I guess it didn't go through - just wanted to say that the shawl is lovely! It's almost a shame that it has to sit in the store instead of being worn out. ;) Yours looks so much more delicate than the one in the original picture, it's sooo pretty!

Don't you just love stash shopping? Oceane looks great. You are a walking French Girl billboard! ;)

(I hope this means Yarntopia will be carrying these patterns.)

I sent my sister your website for the store. She is having kittens!!! She lives off Mason at Provencial. You will be on her way home. She is already promising pressies.
Let's in April? I will have to plan a spring visit to sis.
