Faster than a speeding bullet…

Another FO!
See Jayne, I did it! Thank you for your support.

This is a sock from a group in Ravelry. Barcelona from Mona Schmidt.

I’m really making some progress here, only one day for the end of the year and two WIP down.
Well, you know, got to go again!

Faster than a speed light...

I’ve been making an effort to finish all my UFO before the end of the year.
This is one of many, many in queue…

This pattern was taken from a shawl.

But since I only had 2 balls of this yarn, I decided to do a scarf. Very happy with the result, and the yarn is just fantastic.

It is from Sirdar, silky look. And this is the first and the last time that I will probably see this yarn, the shop where I got it, went on sale from night to day and closes the doors! Yes, good things always tend to disappear…

Got to go to my next project.

I must be losing my mind!

So this is the deal. I had some problems with the presents this year! Made a lot less that the ones that I was thinking, and the people that get them, wasn’t that happy about, I didn’t heard the ahhh, ohhh!

Next year I am going to give handmade things again. So I must start to plan them now, so I can do them big, so they can do a AHHH, and a OHH!

I just join in the Ravelry a group to do presents for Christmas the all year long. But I didn’t think it was enough, so I join a blog too, and then in a blog from a joiner from that blog made a post about two other Yahoo groups… This and this.

You may be confused now, but I was also confused then, so don’t worry :)
MG, I’m in so many groups now that probably I would pass more time posting and reading mails, then making things for Christmas!

But at the end I think it is going to be a good incentive to go.
So to who is interested go and check the links. There are a lot of ideas, good ones, and a lot of people tracking your work also! You may not go out of the track.
I think this is the first post without photos!

Sorry about that, I really don’t like to post whit out photos so here is something that I’m working now.

A rag rug got to find more damaged t-shirts to make the rag. If not let me take out some and then I will tell that they had a little hole! Where? There can you see it!

The Shinny Kitty

Finally it is done. Sorry about the quality of the photo, but I had to take this one during the night, so that Nicole didn’t see it. There are some beads at the front of the dress, i will try to take a better photo after Christmas. It is going to be one of her presents. Every time she sees the doll, she asks me if it is for her, shame. Now I can wrapped up and put under the Christmas tree.

Geometric Crochet

I just made two more Christmas presents. These are my little mini Geometric Pillows.

They just measure about 22cm; they are very cute for a girl’s room.

I’m not going to say more because the girls in question may read my blog, so that is it…
I made the same way has the Bobbles pillow, only this time I used geometric crochet to decorate the front.

Another purse that I made, this time no zipper, or Velcro. Just simple bobbles to close.

This is a pattern from Jezzeblog. You can get it for free and try. Simple, cute and very easy to do. I did mine flat, and with two colors, pink and blue. I guess I must try to practice the Turkish cast on, it is still a big confusion for me.

I would like to thank you all the people that answer me about selling my stuff. I know that it never gets paid, the time and the money that you put on the projects, but this is just for an extra cash to buy more yarn to make more projects. This is starting to be a round and round merry-go-round!
For now it is all.

Where can I get more time?

Well, time really goes quickly! We are so close to Christmas, and still I have so many things to do…

I’ve been busy with the mystery Socks, from the group in Ravelry, going slowly, for not more mistakes.

Probably they won’t be finished in time for me to post them in the group, but it really doesn’t matter. What really matters is that I prove to myself that I could do it, and I think that is the most important thing!

The Ivory coat for Nicole is going, a little bit slowly for my taste, but this is my first big small project, so I must be happy for that.

And now for some other things that I’ve been doing since the beginning of this week. Some extra Christmas presents, that just pop up. I’m still working on it.

So that is why the photos don’t reveal everything.

But I must say I’m very proud of what I’m doing, it is my creation, my design.

I’ve been thinking of opening a shop here on my blog. I would like to know from all my readers, what they think about it! And I also wanted to know, how you do it. Do you send an item already done, or just the pattern.
Let me hear from you….

Don’t leave a stain!

Here is a good idea for Christmas. Coasters...

Probably you’ve already saw it in the net, in millions and millions of blogs. But I’m going to post it anyway. Just because I think it is a very easy, fast and cute crochet work.
In the site you can also make in the knitting version.
I made many with some cotton. In the original pattern, they go with fabric underneath. I’m still deciding…

Got to go...

It's Christmas!

Officially, today is the first day of the Christmas season!

And with all the things that I have on needles, I arranged a little time to make this shirt, top and hat for my friend Barbie. I made some modifications in the pattern. You can get this pattern and 3 more dresses for Christmas in this site. For a quick search the numbers are 335, 336, 340, 341.
An update of my little garden!

So I wanted to present to you my best wishes for all this month.
Enjoy and have fun.
