(another) mystery shawl

Mais um knit-along mistério, que parece ser a melhor forma de eu conseguir acabar um xaile em pouco tempo ... Não estava muito convencida de que iria gostar do resultado final até o ter bloqueado, mas ficou leve e  perfeito para usar nos dias mais frescos deste verão.

Another mystery knit-along, which seems to be the best way for me to finish a shawl in a relatively short time ... I wasn't convinced I would like the final result until I blocked it, but it ended up airy and perfect for using on those chilliest summer days.

bianca top #1

I only had one yard of this gorgeous fabric (Aviary 2 in Vintage Yellow, by Joel Dewberry), so had to choose very carefully what top to make. I finally decided to try Made by Rae's Bianca, a very simple but flattering pattern. I've been wearing it quite often lately, so much that I'm planning to make a few more ...
And a photo of me wearing it in beautiful Budapest a couple of weeks ago (photos and trip report to come soon)

tova #6

Quando vi este tecido (Winter's Lane Mistletoe by Kate & Birdie Paper Co.) achei que seria perfeito para mais uma camisa Tova (a #6). E mesmo assim, penso que não será a última ...

When I saw this fabric (Winter's Lane Mistletoe by Kate & Birdie Paper Co.)  I thought it would be perfect for another Tova shirt (#6). And I don't think this will be my last one ...

casaco de primavera :: spring jacket

E porque ela também estava a precisar de um casaco novo de primavera, decidi fazer uma nova versão deste modelo que fiz (e adoro) do livro Handmade Beginnings da Anna Maria Horner. O tamanho maior do livro já era demasiado pequeno, mas aumentei-o ligeiramente e ficou perfeito. É reversível, mas parece-me que a S. vai querer usar as galinhas do lado de fora quase sempre ...

And because she needed a new spring jacket too, I decided to make a new version of this pattern from Anna Maria Horner's book Handmade Beginnings. The largest size was already too small for her, but I enlarged it a bit and it turned out perfect. It's reversible, but I have a feeling she will want to use the chicken fabric on the outside all the time ...
