Nothing like ice cream on a hot sunny day

One of my friend owns and ice cream shop in the village where she prepare homemade ice cream and gelato. When I saw the pattern in my new Crochet Today! I knew I had to make it for her, it took me a day and I gave it to her. She loved it!

Look at my souvenir from Portugal!!

I was in Silves for an afternoon of sightseen, we went to visit a castle and in the main entrance there was a lady wo was crocheting, she was making beautiful doilies. She only spoke portuguese but from signes, I understood that she was making them from the top of her head. I did not bring my work, I wish I did just to tell her that I was a "crocheter" too... I think it was a sign.

On our way back to the car, DH took a different way and as we walk down the little street I saw it... it was right there ... the most beautiful little LYS. I was so excited.DH saw a bench down the street and told me he would wait for me there... he knows better.

So here is a sample... one ball of each different kind I bought. I already made a shoo-fly thinghy with the blue and yellow. the white is for a Christening dress or romper, the blue was for the baby boy of DH's good friend but we found something else later during the trip so I will find something else and the other colorful ones, I was thinking doing shoo-fly thinghy but I will have to figure out something because right now this one id too big and the beads are not heavy enough. So here it is!

here it is! the spring, not so springy crochet

I finally got my courage together and I wore my creation to work on Thursday.

I got a few very enthusiastic comments, some that congratulated me and one that I don't know what to think about it... something like "Yea... I thought it was something you made" What does that mean?

Anyway, it was positive enough for me to wear it again

How to start the year right!

On the 1st, I stay home, DH was working 24hrs, watched movies all day and crocheted in the couch. I started a second hoodie over the Holidays because I gave it to my god daugther even if it was supposed to be for my friend's daugther. I finished all the pieces on the new year's day. I will need to get more buttons!

But... there is a but, shame on my I have not finished my "spring crochet" I guess that because it is for me, I keep on pushing it away... or it is just that I don't like to finish projects... that one is more on the target

Poncho for Eve

I finished my last Christmas project !

The pattern was in the Family Circle Crochet magazine. They recommended to use Cha-Cha and Disco and I found a substitute that was a third of the price. I added the pull-string for the hoodie because it was a little flare and flowers to make it pretty. I like what I see!

I can't wait to give it to her... Have I tell you? She loves pink
