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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Veikko's hat



My little one is ill, we woke up 3 a.m. for vomit, and then again and again, this part of motherhood it;s the hardest.

So lots of tea and rest are in order, I hope he will get better soon.
