FO :: Audrey

….. oh,yeah,she is….


…. steamed and ready to be framed….

While cross stitching in these last two days an idea has come up to my mind … which includes a small filet lace, already woven in ends and blocked….


….. can you spot the rose in the middle..? After so much knitting I had a need to hold a hook for a while… I’m off to work on my new idea…since it foresees sewing, I’m already sweating a lot…. wish me luck,please…

A WIP and a new project

Hello, my friends!

There’s no need to tell you that I’m already working on new projects, is there….? 😉

I have already shown you the cross stitch Audrey pattern and stuff….well, this beautiful lady is taking shape on my Aida cloth…


This is the second time that I’m cross stitching her and the pleasure is the same as the first one…. 🙂 🙂 🙂

New day, new knitting project, new yarn…




 I will try to knit the following garment…. asked me by a friend of mine….

Per Betty

Hm hm hm ….. the only place where I’ve seen this tubular sweater is here … with no knitting directions….  I really hope that I’ll be able to reproduce well the pattern… I’m going to knit it straight, with neither increases nor decreases, following the shoulder lenght for shape the arm holes …. but I’m not quite sure if a garment of that kind would be wearable… well,I think that the dear friend of mine wouldn’t mind to test it… I’ll make the most of my skill and the yarn and, eventually, we are always in time to undo it and make something else, if necessary… 🙂

Off to make lunch….




PS: The grey yarn is merino while the white is a mix of wool and alpaca, both to be worked on a 8mm circular needles…. I’m in heaven….
