So happy about the results!

I made this cute cardigan or sweater for Baby Angelina, she my friend’s baby. She is not in this world yet, but she is coming this March.

I love to make this tiny sweater it was a lot of fun. When I finished it I thought it was missing something, it was so lonely, so I made a tiny pink hat, which looks adorable.
Pattern: my own
Yarn: Bernat
Color: Baby pink
Needles: US 4.

The same yarn, needles and stitch were used for the hat.

What a nice weekend I just had! I did everything that I wanted to do. I think I love Saturdays and I don’t like at all Sundays, if you ask me way I would say because I don’t like football! Hehehe. But it’s not only for that it’s just that Sunday’s are boring. I have to admit that since I started creating and knitting things, it’s gotten a lot better. This weekend we had people over and I made some pizzas they were delicious! I was so proud of myself; it’s nice the feeling when you cook and everybody likes it! Sunday I went to my husband job for brunch and ate way too much, but it was so good! Then after that we went to my friends’ house and drink some mate (Argentina’s national drink) with cake.
When I got home after that I felt in a great mood to create and it was there when I made some lovely Valentine's Day gifts for my shop!

By request I can make the Heart Brooch in different colors just email me or ask me, and I show you the colors that I have.
I just thought that made a really cute gift for someone you love!
for sale at my shop
I also was inspired enough to make a nice hand knit Hat, super warm it covers your ears perfectly. I made this hat with Argentinian yarn, half wood half acrylic. It's very soft. The flower brooch on the hat is totally removable, so you can use it in the perfect occasion.

Well I have to go to keep creating now!
I just want to say Try to be as happy as you can, and try to laugh everyday a little bit more!
(and just in case you're wondering? yes the one in the picture is me!))

Violet the mischievous little rabbit!

I would like to present you my latest creation on Amigurumis,
her name is Violet, she is a mischievous little rabbit who loves Spring time. Vilolet goes crazy when she sees a butterfly, she likes to play with them and just be happy.
Violet was handmade by me, I crocheted her body and long ears, and I made her face with fleece. If you are interested on her please visit my Etsy shop. I would like her to be adopted by somebody who would care about her.She will only bring joy on your life.
I do not recommend her for little kids because of her nose and eyes.
Violet says Hi Everybody!
For sell at my shop

So far so good!

I hope that everybody has started the New Year with lots of happiness!!
I had a great new years’ Eve. We went to my best friend party, She and her husband made a fun 80’ party! It was great, we had bunch of fun. My husband had to dress me because I had no clue about the 80’ fashion; well I’ve born in 1979 so I was pretty young in the 80’. My hubby lovess the 80’ he knows everything about it! Incredible.

Well as I might have said before I made lot of cute little presents for my girlfriends. I love to make stuff for other people. One of my friends was so exited about the gift I was thrilled.
I made a purple hat for Rona, with a nice flower as a pin, I also made a hat and scarf for Amy and a cream hat for Alexis, and finally for my best friend I made a Tote bag for her books (she is a teacher).
I was so happy they loved them!! It’s so nice to see the reaction on people’s faces when they open a gift that you have made. When I saw Rona’s expression on her face I was speechless, she said “ Oh my gosh, yess! And it’s purple!! And she had this big smile on her face!So far I only have like 2 pictures od the gifts, I'm going to publish the other ones later. The pictures don't look good because the lack of light, they were taken like 3:00am at the party, so I can't expect much. I wish I would have taken the picuters before wrapping them. They look so much better in person believe me.

I have to say that the most difficult present that I have ever made was my hubby’s scarf and hat(pictures are coming soon), well the hat wasn’t difficult, but the scarf oh boy! I finished it ON January 5th just on time for Los Reyes magos; it’s a holiday that we celebrate in my hometown. You are suppose to live your shoes and a boll with water and some grass for the camels under the Christmas tree and next morning the water and grass will be gone and on your shoes you are going to find a nice present something that you wanted. Well my hubby loved his gift. I was so so happy that all my effort and time were appreciated by a big smile on his face and huge hug! I love my hubby with my whole heart!
I have some picture to show but I’m shy, hehehe, so I still thinking about publish them or not? Well what that h… I will do it.

And finally I would like to say that I love my life and I really happy to share it!
