Marabout – Bouts de ficelle…

creativity, Knitting

I grew up in France, singing a nursery rhyme which is about three little cats. Kind of.

The song is a succession of words that blend with one another (this style is called, I think Dorica Castra) as the last syllable of the last word sounds like the first syllable of the following word…

So it starts with three little cats and then goes on about a straw hat, a door mat, a sleepwalker… and carries on ’round the houses’ until it gets to the pieces of string – “bouts de ficelle”.

How to make a yoga eye pillow…

I’m very lucky, because tomorrow I will get to spend the day with Andrea Kwiatkowski for a Teaching Restorative Yoga workshop. I spent quite a while gathering the props I need to bring with me – and I needed amongst other useful things – an eye pillow!

I decided to make one myself, using what I already had lying around the house… and it was very easy!
