Sundays are for…

Today é um post totalmente aleatório com algumas das coisas que fiz hoje… Today I woke up, and just got up when I finished reading “City of the Beasts” by Isabel Allende acordei e só saí da cama depois de acabar “A cidade dos deuses […]

Knitting for 2 years

Knitting for 2 years

Even though there is no specific day for the day I started knitting I thought that since last year the post was on this day, this will be the official day. Unfornately the giveaway I did last year won’t be repeated this year, at least […]

Record Like..

Record Like..

For me it was definately a record. Sleeves aren’t done but still. I was able to knit a sweater (without counting sleeves) with fingering weight yarn in 7 days! Right now I cannot knit because I don’t have dpns and here there isn’t any yarn store with one which means I’ve to order them online. So for me it’s finished as Ravelympic project. It was a total challenge, my hands were sore day after day but I feel great 😀 And I’m ready to start second semester of college! Para mim foi definitivamente um record. As mangas não estão feitas mas mesmo assim. Fui capaz de tricotar uma camisola (sem contar com as mangas) com lã fina em 7 dias! Agora não posso tricotar porque não tenho as agulhas de ponta dupla e não existe nenhuma loja de lãs aqui com elas o que significa que tenho de encomendar na net. Mas para mim está acabado como um projecto do Ravelympics. Foi um grande desafio, as minhas mãos doiam dia após dia mas sinto-me óptima 😀 E estou pronta para começar o segundo semestre da universidade!

Ravelympics

Ravelympics

I’m participating in the Ravelympics in Ravelry. And I’m totally challenging myself (maybe too much). I’m knitting a sweater in fingering weight yarn! I think I was crazy choosing this project. But I’m not giving up, at least not yet. And in the 22nd I […]

Sunday night I started to make this beret, but I didn’t do much because I wanted to do it as fast as possible. In Monday I knitted a little bit but nothing really special even though I made some progress. I wanted to do it […]

Learning

Learning

How was your week? It was a tough week for me, praxe is not being easy on me (learn about praxes here), all the pushups and many different things that I won’t talk about, at least right now ^^ Como foi a vossa semana? Foi uma semana dura para mim, a praxe é complicada, todas as flexões e muitas outras coisas que não vou falar, pelo menos agora ^^
Anyway… Friday my mom picked up her sewing machine (something was wrong with it so it needed a fix) so since Saturday afternoon I’ve been doing lots of sewing 🙂 I’m a total beginner on this but I’m learning. It’s so fun and so frustating at the same time, but I can’t wait to show off what I’m doing. What I was making is almost done but since I’m leaving today I decided to leave the rest for next week. Here’s me sewing: Passando à frente… Sexta a minha mãe foi buscar a máquina de costura dela (algo estava mal por isso precisava de ser arranjada) e desde a tarde de Sábado tenho feito muita costura 🙂 Sou uma completa iniciante mas estou a aprender. É divertido e frustante ao mesmo tempo mas mal posso esperar para exibir aquilo que tenho feito. O que andei a fazer está quase pronto mas como vou-me embora hoje decidi deixar o resto para a próxima semana. Aqui estou eu a costurar:

And while I’m on the bus I’ve been making booties for preemie babies, I offered to knit for charity and received some wool to make little things for babies. It’s a great way to help someone by knitting. And I also plan in try out new patterns to see what I like to do 🙂 E tenho feito botas para bebés prematuros enquanto estou no autocarro, ofereci-me para tricotar para a caridade e recebi alguma lã para fazer pequenas coisinhas para os bebés. É uma óptima forma de ajudar alguém tricotando. Também penso em experimentar novos modelos para ver aquilo que gosto de fazer 🙂 (there’s only one pair because my mom is still sewing the rest) (existe apenas um par porque a minha mãe ainda está a coser o resto)

And at last, I received this beautiful flower pin =) I made a banner for her shop and she sent me this, it’s beautiful right? Check out Oops a Daisy. E por fim recebi este lindíssimo ganho com uma flor =) Eu fiz um banner para a loja dela e ela mandou-me isto, é magnífico não acham? Vejam Oops a Daisy.

My cross stitch is also finished (since last week) but there are still some ends to weave in so I didn’t take a photo yet. Também já acabei o quadro em ponto de cruz (já a semana passada) mas ainda não rematei algumas linhas por isso a foto ainda não foi tirada.
And that’s it for today 🙂 I wish you all a very creative week! E é tudo por hoje 🙂 Desejo a todos uma semana muito criativa!

How was your week? Mine was full of beach volleyball and I’ve to say I was really tired, today I just rested, I did nothing in particular 🙂 But I took pictures of my finished Razor Cami and I couldn’t wait to share them with […]

Today I don’t have much to say. I’ve got lots of plans for future projects but I’ve been only working in my tank. I hope it’s completed by the end of next week 🙂 I frogged it several times until the ribbing because sometimes the […]

Knit = Stitch

Knit = Stitch

What have I been doing lately? Knitting and a little bit more knitting. First I did this: O que eu tenho feito ultimamente? Tricot e mais um bocadinho de tricot. Primeiro fiz isto:
cupcakepincushion3
cupcakepincushion1
It’s a pincushion with a shape of a cupcake 🙂 It’s a great way to use up leftovers of yarns and it’s super cute. Pattern here. É um alfineteiro em forma de queque 🙂 Óptima forma de gastar restos de lãs e super fofinho. Modelo aqui.
And I started a new tank for me 🙂 E comecei um top para mim 🙂 I ordered some yarn to make two things for me. The photo is on last week’s Sem Palavras. My mom told me I couldn’t touch the yarn until my exams were over and when I did the last exam I went home pick up my brother and my package was there 😀 It was such a coincidence but it made my day! Eu mandei vir lã para fazer duas coisas para mim. A foto está no Sem Palavras da semana passada. A minha mãe disse que eu não podia mexer nela até que os meus exames estivessem acabados e quando acabei o meu último exame tive de ir buscar o meu irmão a casa e lá estava a minha encomenda à minha espera 😀 Foi uma enorme coincidência mas fez-me feliz o dia inteiro!
I just took the picture and I love it. I know it might sound cocky but I think the photo looks amazing. Acabei de tirar a fotografia e adoro-a. Pode parecer convencido mas acho que a foto está maravilhosa.

I wish you all an amazing week! Desejo a todos uma óptima semana!
