Christmas moorning

So we had a very nice one today, and I decide to let go, and don't stay awake until midnight the night before finishing his gifts and better sleep with him, so I gave him some unfinished stuff, but he liked it.

Lindo bombón y el Hermoso

Here is his skeellie, wich I called Catrino and he called Lindo Bombón. he has a shirt, pants, a dress, a blanket and a bed in process. I got the fabric from here. And I wrote the blanket pattern here, even when this is not really a pattern I thought it may be useful for someone


Here is the sweater without the hood.


And some other gifts he got.

It was very nice, quiet and peaceful. hope yours was too.

Thank you for visiting here.

A ride to the hospital

So we finished our Holiday with a ride to the hospital, not a rush preoccupied one, just concern.

We went to a family party in the country and almost as soon as we arrived my son fell (he was wearing his brand new orthopedic shoes) and he hurt his ankle, he cried but not much, and then it was fine, but he could not stand or walk. We stayed at the party for several hours and he played on the grass.

When we left I decide to take him to the Hospital because he wont stand yet, and trying was painful.

We got lucky and there was no broken bones, but I got a bittersweet taste for all of it, and the funny thing is not that I was a little worry for him (I manage to get calm thinking the worst scenario, which I thought was a broken bone and a cast, and still that was not so ban, because there was no needles or painful procedures involved), it was the bad vibes I got since the beginning.

Do you have an unsporting person in your life? I think I involuntary always keep one on hand, because that my role model. So if I don't get disaprovement I'm not at peace. But I'm trying to change that.

Since I arrive to the place the comment of this person was that I had choose the wrong socks for those shoes, and then when he felt, that of course that was my fault for make him wear those shoes on grass, not to mention that I'm almost hypochondriac for taking him to the hospital.

And I think... so what?
If I'm exaggerating by taking him to the the hospital, then be supportive or don't be any way. I managed to make my kid get exited to wear those shoes, I mean, those ugly, heavy, Herman Monster shoes, that are good for him, he has the worst kind of flat feet, I'm trying to avoid a surgery, here, is that so bad?

I'm sorry if all this does not make any sense, but what do you do when someone you can't really cut from your kid's life is so negative about all the decisions you make?
Is anyone dealing with something similar?

I'm sorry, for all this, thank you for reading, tough, and for the record my kid will be fine and he was excited for the wheelchair.

Have a Merry Christmas to you all.

Merry Christmas

I hope you have had a lovely one, I leave you with a song my son invented, it says something like: When the sun comes out the kids are awake, and when the moon come the all sleep, tomorrow is Chritsmas and all are happy.

 Yarn Along

I'm still on the Pirate Sweater for my son, as he called it. It was much more easy than I thought but I did have to make adjustments because my yarn is thinner, I will update details here soon.

I'm still on One hundred years too, and happily surprised of how many English speakers have reed it, it's such a great book, I'm in the part of 17 Aurelianos already.

Last night I watch Le Concert, it was great, I even watched over imediatly, as I did with Garden State.

 What have you been working on?

We made a very simple advent calendar yesterday.

Thanks for visiting!


Now we are friends


The first snake I found in my garden scared me and I hurt her, now I have learn that they are good and we go visit them often, and I ask for forgiveness for my stupidity.

Here is more information about them.


Yarn Along, One hundred years of solitude

Yarn Along it's a day of the week to share what you are knitting and reading created by Ginny, you can add your post here every Wed. or to the flickr group any day.

My son is in need of a warm sweater for winter, so I let him pick a pattern, he liked this one for the pirate related thing with the skull, I like it because it has a hoodie, it's a free pattern, and it seams like is wide and can last a year, or at least I'm hoping that, this is the larger project I have ever made, I don't have black wool yarn so I will be using brown instead, details here.

Yarn Along

I'm rereading One hundred years of solitude by Gabriel García Márquez, I recommend it very much, it's incredible.


Is that time of the year

I've been planing since the last week of October, it gave me so much joy to arrange an rearrange the gift list, lo think of the best ideas, what will be the best gift for each one and also to make things to sell in this season, so I wont get any sleep until the last day of December.

I switch to sewing mode, so I'm not knitting that much and I think this year will be the year of the banners, I made one and I'm all hooked, love them, hope to sell some too.

This first one is for a lady who sells her pottery work at the farmer's market I work, I love her creations, and the colors she use, always on the blue green side. She made a mug for my son's the other day, just because, and I love it, so I wanted to thank her, and created this flag banner with the same colors, hope she likes it.

Here is another one I'm working on, it will say Buenas Noches (Good Night), I love to do things inspired by trees.

Banderita Buenas noches

I made one pant holder for a friend in Mexico we called Lu out of demin scraps, pants are always too long for me, alas the mane of my blog.

Bici urbana

And I love it so much that now I can't stop, I made this one for sell and this other one for my brother as a Christmas gift, this last one comes with a little pouch that can be attached to the bike.

Ciclista UrbanoCiclista urbano

I also made this little wallet for a friend. I love to create things, I just feel a little sorry that I'm so busy doing things for sell that I hardly have time for doing things for love ones, because I'm getting so many ideas.

But tomorrow is my father birthday, so I made this apron for my son to embellish and I love that the first thing he thought was to put a heart on it. And then he (with my help) wrote "for my grandchild". since they are always joking around about my son being the grandfather and my father being the grandson.

How is your gift making season going?


A site for my son

We don't have a t.v. at home but I do let my son play in some sites I found safe.

So I had created this site, so he can explore and add information as he learns it and along with his own interests.

It is Spanish, but he does not read yet, so I try to design it for any kid.

It's just a home project, but maybe you'll like it, and we will include drawing, photos or videos from any kid as long as consider appropriate (no commercial characters, no offensive content, etc.), so you can send contributions to nahuatlv@gmail.com if you like.
This is it:


Yarn Along, my first pattern on Ravelry.

This week I made a little hat for a baby and I end up publishing my first Ravelry pattern, I'm so excited, it's Veikko's Hat, you can find it here. It's a newborn gnomy hat, maybe too simple for all you experienced knitters, but an easy fast gift for the holidays or baby to born, hope you like it.

I'm still reading I curse the river of time, by Per Petterson and loving it.

Veikko's hat, my first public pattern

 I'm so proud to announce that I have publish my first pattern on Ravelry, here is it.

El gorrito de Veikko

It's Veikko's hat a very simple gnomy hat that I made for a Finn friend’s baby, Veikko. It’s a fast and easy last minute gift, also it needs very little yarn, so you can use whatever you have on your stash. I used some leftover from Restless Prairie Farm, an Etsy shop, I don’t know the brand of it but it’s organic and so soft.

You may download it here

There is also this little wallet.

Yarn Along and Homescholing

Yarn Along it's a day of the week to share what you are knitting and reading created by Ginny, you can add your post here every Wed. or to the flickr group any day.

This week I'm still on the sleepers for my son, from last week, and a pair of baby sock for a surprise gift.

The yarn on the sleepers it's quite old, my mom gave it to me about 3 years ago, but I remember how it was always in her stash, so I showed to her and we calculated it's about 20 years old. And the good news is that is not acrylic, but wool, she made a little burning test (I didn't knew about this), and showed me how it will became ashes and not a hard plastic thing and there is also the smell of burned hair.

Yarn Along

In the reading front there has been a lot of Calvert manuals being our first year and all the system very new for me, so I'm trying to figure it out, but today we had our fist lesson and we loved it, more on that tomorrow.

So what it's in you needles?
