I wish I hadn’t said anything! Last week I was complaining about the sun preventing me to take pictures, and there I am, stuck here because of the snow!

Let’s take this opportunity to show you another warm, cosy knitted dress made by my grandmother.


This one is definitely my favorite. The pattern is from a Phildar mini-book from 2007 with six dress patterns which are all really good (they are not all on Ravelry, they can be seen for example here). It’s made in Frimas (which means cold weather in French!), in the color Mûre, a.k.a. blackberry, yum. The Frimas quality was one of my favorites, it’s very soft and has kind of a tweed aspect. Guess what… Phildar stopped it too. Not only they stopped it, though, they also released another yarn named Frimas, but which is totally different! Phildar, seriously…


Sorry, I can’t find a photo of the back where it’s not covered in snow!


Anyway, even though I can’t understand Phildar’s strategy when it comes to yarn qualities, I have to admit that their patterns are great. This one has ribbing on the arms and under the chest which makes for a very flattering silhouette, and a scoop neckline with a foldover collar that looks great too. I love this dress, I really hope it will last long!
