Maria



Long time no post!



But there is a reason for that; I’ve been knitting and crochet, and keeping me away more from the computer. I am thirsty to see all my works done. The ones already in needles, and the others that are in my mind.



So without any delay I present you Maria!
In Honor to my Mother Maria



Now let’s go to the story…



This pink coat was made by my mother, many, many moons ago. I was still at school. I still have it, I still wear it, and I simple love it.







Since I like this coat so much, and since I had that thicker grey yarn, that I was trying to do the Gilmore vest with it, I thought this yarn was perfect just to make a smaller coat.
And using the new methods from today (like no seam).




I’ve made this one, first the sleeves, and then put them aside.



Then I did the body, starting at the bottom and went up to the neck, in the middle I joining the sleeves, and that was it.






I was worried about the yarn, if it wasn’t enough, but at the end it was more that I needed!


Purl1, knit6, Purl1, basic stitch pattern.
Made the raglan sleeves.





I like it. I like it a lot.
And I’m happy, since the weather here is still cold.


Next post it will be about some Vest in crochet that is almost done.

Stay tuned…
