First FO, the fingerless mitten, do you remember her?
This is the third one and the last, the big Boss gave is approval, and i was very happy. He just had another request..... to make the match. OK that is fair. I will make the other mitten for the other hand.
Socks for Nicole.
Can anybody remember the first post about this. i can't, it was a long time ago:)
But done! FO in sight.
Next: the round pillow.
The back is Donne.
But now i have to study a way to close that hole in the middle. And i have to go and buy more wool, it is gone now. For the round finishing I've already know what to do. But the middle it is a bit difficult, any advice?
Booties for Angelina-FO
These booties were very easy to make and they seam to stay for much longer in the feet:)
I just have to put maybe some elastics in the cuff, to keep it tight.
And it was it, a week of projects Donne.
Can you see now the quantity of bags around me, calling me, and me, ignoring them.
Donne, Donne and Donne.
Yesterday, it was Fathers day. And what a great day he had. Presents in the morning, breakfast in bed, lunch in is favorite restaurant (spar ribs, of course).
When is it mothers day?
Last night:) I just started a new project.
Legwarmers. It is starting to be very, very cold around this part of the world. And some more for the kids. No, daddy said he didn't want:)
Just let me go and turn on the heater, sit on the coach and start working.

And he came with some food that is made in Portugal:)
There are some cans of beans, coffee, and some kind of sausages, I'm going to say the names in Portuguese and than try to explain, the first one is alheira, it is made with only birds meat, like chicken, turkey and some more, they are very good if you fried them, with some chips and eggs:)
I'M SO HAPPY
The next one you may not like, it is morcela de sangue, it is made with blood from the pig, it is very good if you put in the brie and eat them with bread.
The third one is farinheira, they are done by boiling in a big pan with a lot of cabbage and other veggies, but you can also put this one in the brie.
These kind of sausages are typical in Portugal. And are always homemade.
And those cans on the back, Guaraná, it is from Brazil, we drink that a lot in Portugal. It is a juice from a fruit. In Brazil they drink as much Guaraná as they drink beer.
So that was it, he came with a luggage full of some goodies that, where made there but were bought here. Isn't that ironic?
For today it is all.
I'm going to 'kill' my missing Portugal with food:)

It is a pity that one isn't very good:)
I happen to find a site where this ARTIST makes a lot of yummy food in knitting and crochet!
Go there and take a peep
Now here in South Africa, to be more precise in Cape Town, has been raining for almost 3 days without stopping!
Tomorrow I'm thinking in going to the sport shop to buy Hus a boat. Just so we can go out with out sinking:)
Over and out

I'm still digesting also.
remember the mitten in the last post?
Frog it. My dear HF said that i had to start to stop knitting in one side and go up in the other....I'm knitting in round, you can't just stop one side and knit the other side. Well for me it is not possible, so out with the mitten. so he choose another one, with fingers.
This is the one that he choose!
Every half hour i would put in his hand to try, and He would say, yes it is OK...
Yesterday it was finished.
He arrived home and put the mitten in his hand....and.....well you know it is very nice but the fingers are to long!!!!
I can't work nicely with the mouse in the computer!!!!
CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS:)
So today I'm going to frog it AGAIN. And try to do the $#$#$ mitten again. Seriously.
So after all that conversation, I just turn myself to the kitchen!!
To make some cupcakes. Well the girls loved it. And my little one even tried to eat it:)
For now there is no more frog news.
until the next mitten:)

Nicole was looking like....oh my!....
And Angelina was thinking.... is it time to sleep?...
At the end i could only take a photo of the old wild, the other one was already in her beauty sleep. But those curls were very pretty! And she was happy. So happy that nobody could touch the hair. Yes it is a big job to stay beautiful........
And now some news from my knitting.
It is Donne. The front of the cushion is Donne and it is lovely.
Now it is time for the back. I've chose to do the opposite colors. I will try to make it chop, chop.
But of course. i had to put this in the middle!
This is a mitten for my HF.
He's a IT, and spends a lot of hours in front of the computer.
In winter time his hand is frozen.
So i told him that i would make a fingerless mitten for him.
I've almost finished. So probably it will be an FO for the next post.
For now it is all from the land of the lions.
