I had many planned, but haven't been able to publish them.

After this one, I started my first pair of socks, at least following a pattern, Africa's Socks, here are my Ravelry notes, it is a great challenge for me, I didn't understood many word, but I'm happy to say that I finished the first one. The week Istarted I  Fukuoka book, The One-Straw Revolution: An Introduction to Natural Farming (New York Review Books Classics), it's about Natural Farming and so much more, I recommend it a lot.

After that I finshed the diaper cover while reading some mystery stories I enjoyed a lot.

Now I'm making the Plain Vest, I didn't had number 9 needles and used 10, It's so big that I think it fits well my skinny 5 year old, too bad the colors are all girly, so I will have to find another owner.

I'm not reading much this week, I'm more into movies mood.

I changed the blog a little, hope you like it, and no, that's is not a mistake, in Costa Rica winter is the rainy season, from May to December, and then it comes summer (there is only two seasons), and it's funny, because summer it's the non-rainy time of the year.

We have 2 seasons here, too - rain and rain with coldness. :)
Can't wait to see your finished projects :)

Cute socks. I checked out the pattern. I've never made socks before. I think I might try it soon. Would you recommend these ones for a first timer? I really like the colour of your diaper cover too!

Thank you both.

Yes, Amanda, I think it's a great pattern for a first time, as it was my first. It's important to make some research on terms, such as what is the gusset, heel flap and that. I found this useful: http://maverickcrafter.blogspot.com/2009/09/socktoberfest-parts-of-sock.html
