Happy New Year!

 I love to receive the New Year, it’s my favorite! I do all kinds of things. I have made clear that I am a very superstitious person. See, if you receive the year ready and in a positive way this are going to go better and easier.
This is hoe my day might be tomorrow:
1-     Cleaning the house is very important! Get rid of clutter, put everything where it belongs. When you vacuum do it from inside to outside like throwing all the dust out the door! You want to keep only all the good vibe, so get rid of all the negativity in the house.
2-     Water is great to collect negative energy; you should put one glass in each room in your house. If you see lots of bubbles on the water it means negative energy, do not drink this water, throw it out the toilet.
3-      Change your sheets and clean all the dust off the furniture.
4-     For yourself: Take a nice long shower scrubbing your body starting for your neck finishing on your feet.
5-     Think positive, don’t think how bad this year was, think all the good moments you had and think next year is going to be better.
6-     When you toast for New Year’s think of a wish from the deep inside your heart.
7-     I like to finish a pending knitting project.

Well these are some of the things I will be doing tomorrow! I know I am crazy! Right? Well this is Sabrina 100%.
To all my readers I wish them a really Happy New Year! I hope 2011 brings lots of health to all our families, union, harmony, peace, happiness, friendship, jobs, and all the simple things that life brings us to make it all better.
A big Hug to you and best wishes!

Work in progress

Knitting with Baby alpaca is like touching the clouds! My hands are happy and relax when knitting with such a soft and light yarn, and a smile comes and goes of my face when I feel the softness.
Yesterday afternoon when I got home from work my husband went to play poker at my friend’s house (I was suppose to go too, but I decided to stay). So it was the prefect the moment to start the Passion Hat, that’s how I called it. I love it so far! It feels like is going to be very light and warm. I can’t wait to finish it and give it to him.
I have to confess something… I might become Baby Alpaca addict… shhhh….

I just want to say that, I’m sending you a nice big hug, in case you need one to keep going, they help me.

Knitting with passion

In the middle of the fall I finished a hat for my husband. I picked the colors and the yarn. He has a pretty small head so I needed to make it perfect fit. I used cash merino yarn from Lion brand, super soft and easy to knit. The hat came out nice; he really liked it, although he said it’s just a little tight, but he has been using it everyday because is very warm and he likes how it looks.
I have to confess I feel flatter when he wears my creations! He wears the hats and scarves with such a proud that makes me smile and little hearts start coming out of my eyes when I look at him! hahaha (like the cartoons). I knit with passion when when I knit for him.
 Today I was thinking about him and this cold freezing weather, and I decided that it’s time to be a good wife and making another one. This time I am using Baby Alpaca, so so soft and warm! I’m not going to tell him, it’s going to be a surprise.
All right, so today at my lunchtime I went to the Old Town Needle shop in Manassas, VA. They have a very nice selection of yummy yarns. I looked around and touched a lot of different yarns, until I found just what I was looking for Soft Baby Alpaca DK.
I picked three different colors to combine them, black, light gray and dark gray. I am thinking about making some uneven stripes around. So we’ll see. I want to have this project finish for New Year’s Eve, so can use the new hat at midnight.
As I say before I love to celebrate New Year’s, and I believe that you have to receive the year wearing something new on! So that’s why I want to finish it on time!
Well, tell me do you have any projects that you would like to finish by the
December 31st, 2010? Who are you knitting for?

A big hug for you!

My Slouchy hat

 Well I started this hat a while ago, and for some reason It turn out more like a barret than a slouchy hat, having said that I have to say that I love the way it turned out! I can put all my hair in the hat and it super warm and comfy! I like the color as well and the yarn is very nice.
This hat is raveled here.

Romantic get away Weekend!

Today I am wearing my Baltazar Vest. I like it, but I don’t love it. Something about it is not really comfortable, like the under arm is a little  tight, other than that it’s fine. The yarn is really warm, soft and light.
As I said, in one of the post, right now I am working on my second bolero which I am planning to make a little longer so I can use with my leggings, so I guess it woulnd’t be a bolero anymore but a “long-lero” hahaha.
Well I also want to share that I am having a special get away weekend! My husband and I decided to go for a short trip to a City that we haven’t visited yet, so we are going to San Francisco California! We have wanted to go to visit this City for a very long time; we are really excited and anxious! If you know of any special place or yarn shop that you think is a must visit place please let me know, so I don’t miss it!
We like to drive a lot, so we are planning on visiting lots of different places even maybe Reno the biggest smallest city in the world! So we are planning to have a lot of fun, our mini honeymoon!
I promise that I will post beautiful pictures!

Have a great weekend
For all my readers, and I will see you back on Wednesday!

Free Infertility treatments!

One of my dreams came true! I am so so so so so so HAPPY
On December 3rd, 2010 in Argentina (my country) a new law has been approved. This law  says that from now on all infertility treatments are FREE including  In –vitro fertilization, for all the Argentinian citizens. ( I am one of them)
This is so great, because many people are going to have the possibility to try to become a parent!!!!
Everybody should have the same rights on this matter, and now it’s possible for everyone!

Knitting makes me relax

Well yesterday when I got home I started my Cloud bolero #2. After casting on a knitted about 2 rows and I decided to stop and called my dad. Well he wasn’t doing very well. He was going to the hospital as soon as my mom arrived.
Imagine me, miles and miles away not being able to help them, I was so nervous and frustrated I hate waiting for answers. I didn’t know what to do. So, I tried to eat some dinner and then I decided that the best way to relax a little bit was making some linden tea and knitting. My husband knows that, so he encouraged me to relax.
Well, it worked I got to relax a little bit until I heard from my brother and everything was fine. Honestly distance socks badly!
Well today everything looks brighter, my dad is doing better, but still we have to keep waiting for the final diagnostic.
Today I was at work and you know I didn’t have much to do, so my mind started to go really fast so I pulled out form my purse a wonderful book about knitting called 

                  “The Knitting Answer book” by Margaret Radcliffe. 

Let me tell you something it is great; it has all kinds of questions and an answer for each of them. While I was reading I felt that a lot of my knitting questions were answer in a complete way. I recommend this book to every knitter that is not an expert yet; of course if you are an expert you already know all the answers. I got this book from the library and read it so fast that is almost over.
Well ladies, I have to go now.
Hugs for everybody and send me a hug back because today I really need it!

Suri Alpaca fExtra fine Merino soooo Softtttt!!!!!

What a gray day today! I wish I was home knitting on my sofa watching something fun, but in reality I am stock at work like the majority of us. During lunchtime I went to Hancock fabrics to see what they had. I found some cheap yarn the Vanna’s Choice from Lion Brand in Dusty green color. I love it! I am planning to knit me another bolero, since the one I knitted has been use a lot. Well I can’t complaint the yarn is pretty decent and is machine washable (what a relieve), and I only spend $7 because it was 30% Off!!!

I have to confess that yesterday I found a place online that sells Suri Alpaca Extra fine merino from Plymouth for $4,95 a skein!!!!
 I was shock. Do you have any idea about how soft this yarn is? Well let me tell you it’s soft as a cloud!  So this morning after thinking for a long time I went to the website again and I browsed all over again until I decided to finally buy it. I bought 7 skeins of Suri Alpaca extra fine Merino for $34.00 less $3,50 discounts it came up as $31.00 and is Alpaca!!!!!
So, after all I have cheap yarn and good quality yarn. I think I have an idea about what I am going to make with my Suri Alpaca, but I am not sure yet. What I do know is that today when I get home I am going to start knitting another Bolero from Ysolda, because I love them!
My Baltazar Vest is done, I will show pictures really soon.
Ladies, I just want to knit on gray days!
Hugs to all of you and enjoy your knitting!

Knitting and finished projects

I can believe that Thanks Giving is so close! We already bought the turkey and all the rest of the food, delicious! So Thanks Giving is already here and the weather is still like spring time! How cool is that? I wonder if winter is going to come this year…mmm… I wonder if it is going to get cold enough to be able to use my chunky knits? I hope so! Last Sunday I started a new project from the Twinkle's Big City Knits, yes another one. I love that book, and there are like 4 more projects that I really like, so you will be seeing more chunky knits from me. Well the pattern that I am doing right now is called Balthazar vest. I am using Landscapes yarn- Rose garden- from Lion Brand. Super soft and light and very warm. So far I love it. I don’t know if it’s going to be enough yarn though; and if I run out of yarn it is going to be a problem because that specific yarn has been discontinued. Yes I know, I should have thought about that before starting, but the thing is that I have all this yarn and I needed it to use it. So we’ll see what happens.
Today I also updated Ravelry with pictures of my finish projects; one of them was my February Lady Sweater. I like when everything looks nice and completed.
Here is my February Lady Sweater finished (with modifications on the lace  pattern)

November has been a very active knitting moth for me. I finished two projects fro myself already and I will probably finish one more, and they are all for me!!
Well I let you go back toy do your things. Thank you for reading and as I always say

Things I wanted to show

Girls here is the finished product! I wish I could have taken a better picture of my bolero, but it was too dark and I just couldn't wait any longer to should it to you. I want to show you also how it looks on me so you can give me your opinion. I have to say that this is the first pattern that I used from Ysolda and let me tell you it was perfect! I loved it! Now I want more of her  work. I want her book really bad! She rocks!

I just love my Bolero!

I also wanted to show you the progress of my shopping tunic, last night I decided to un-knit again and I was able to make it fit! So I will finish it tonight. I am so tired of looking at it. I really want to finish it because the weather is supposed to get really cold next week, snow involved and everything, so I want to be ready, cozy and warm.
Last night I remember that I've never posted a picture of my first published pattern the one that came out on Knitting Pattern a day. Well here are the pictures of how my pattern really looks!

 I've submitted another pattern for 2012 and I am supper excited about I hope it can make to the calendar again. 
Well that's all for today, I now it's not much, but at least you could see where I am at.
Just for the record I am working on a new pattern for everybody.

Knitting crisis!

You have not idea how many times I remake the neck of the shopping tunic! OMG! It's driving me crazy! This is looking really bad. I do NOT like the look, shape or form of that neck, It turns out freaking HUGE! 
Nooooo, I am way too short for that type of neck I look like a big" walking sweater".  Patience Sabrina, breath, it is going to be only the 4th time that you un-knit this project, breath. You have to redo it again, so take  it easy lady! I know, I know i said to myself! Even though I talk to myself i am NOT crazy (well just a little bit).
So last night that’s what I did, while watching the Pacific (HBO war mini series) with my husband, I  un-knitted all the neck again to the shoulders; I left it ready to start knitting again, this afternoon when I come back home from work, I just want to finish it! In the mean while I say to myself “
“La paciencia es un árbol de raíz amarga pero de frutos muy dulces.”
“Patience is a tree of sour roots, but really sweet fruits”

I also wanted to share with you that my adorable husband got us tickets to go to the U2 concert for June 2011!!!! He was alerted so he new the first day the tickets went on sale and he got row 11 baby!!!!! I will see Bono so close that is going to be awesome! Besides U2 has a couple of songs that are very special to us, so is going to be a magic night.
I can’t wait!!!

To all the knitters, patience is the key for a wonderful project!
Hugs everybody,

Knitting and me

Knitting… it takes my mind again, it’s my therapy, it activates my imagination and I create. Magic is what I feel when I project is done, when I can see the results, when I know I am wearing something made by me on my favorite color and my favorite length.
So I’ve been knitting away a lot this week. You see when I worried there is a point during the day that I need to let go, and then is when I grab my needles and my hands do all the work leaving my brain to rest. On Wednesday night I finished a hat for my husband, he needed one, it’s like a gray with two burgundy stripes. He was happy but a little disappointed because the color that used was really similar to the color I had used last year, but he liked and he’ll said he’ll use it. It was the perfect fit.
I have been wanted to knit  “ the shopping tunic” from Twinkle's Big City Knits for a long time, but I didn’t have the correct needles to start it. So I decided to finally look for the needles. So expensive! The place in Old Town Manassas wanted $15.00 for a Clover bamboo pair and $22 for a pair of Addis!!!!! Nooooo I can afford that! Sorry. So I decided to go online to Etsy and I found a wonderful shop that had the needles that I needed it. Do you know how much did I pay for the same pair of Clover bamboo needles? You won’t believe it! …………..
$4.00 for a pair!!!!!!!!! And $1.00 for shipping! I bought two pairs of different sizes and I spend including shipping $9.00 and only $9.00 dollars. So yesterday when I got home the needles were there in my mailbox. I was able to start my project and so far I love it!
I will show later. I am planning on taking plenty of pictures this weekend so you can see everything.

Today I am using my First Bolero!! It looks so cute! I feel proud when I remember that I made this bolero, hihihihi.
  The pattern is by Ysolda , love this girl, she makes really beautiful things. I wish I could knit as well as she does. Her work inspires me a lot.

 Well that’s all for today, you guys have a great weekend and enjoy!We are going to have drinks and some appetizers (yummy!) I tell you all about it later
Have a great weekend!

Happy Halloween!

I just wanted to share that yesterday my husband and I did the pumpkin carved, for me was the first time ever, I was happy as a kid! We bought two pumpkins one for him and one for me. I copied whatever he did, like he sometimes says "watch and learn" and that's what I did.
After a little while my first pumpkin was done! and his too.
Here is a picture of my happy face with the two pumpkins.
The one on the right is mine and the one on the left is his!
Here is a close up
and this one is my husband's, it reminded me of the Night before Christmas movie!
Today around 7:00pm I put the camera and we video chat with my mom and we should her everything, well in Argentina they don't celebrate Halloween so she loves to see what is like here, you know.
It was a really fun day, and to make it complete I finish my first bolero! It looks so cute.
I will should you to you later on, it was too dark to take pictures today, but honestly I truly love it!

See you tomorrow!
and Happy Halloween to you!

I clicked!

I found this cute little bag on sale for $4.99 right next to my work and I am loving it! I can fit a project and I filled the pockets with all the tools. I don’t loose anything anymore! This is unbelievable I can keep everything in one place now.I recommend this little bags they are great and ones you get used to them you won't be able to not have one.

Last night I found a sock that I was knitting long time ago and never finished, well I paid a lot of money for the yarn used on the sock, so i decided to un-knitted and start another par of socks. So well see what it comes out of that project! 
Sharing personal things today.
Today I feel great! I have to share this with you guys, and all this happiness because my mind has finally clicked! Remember that I told you that last Saturday I might go to my friend’s house? Well I went. My friend’s sister has a daughter in law and she was there. She is studying alternative medicine, and we talked a lot. She gave me great advices full natural tips. Talking to her made me realized that I was wrong. She said to me whenever you feel afraid about a situation think the opposite. For example if you are afraid of your dad’s health issues, think about your father holding your baby, think about him playing and enjoying his company. Don’t think negative. She was right!
So when I got home that night I sleep on those words and on picturing all this wonderful things that I would like to see, I felt relieved. I talked to my dad and I told him that I am not scared anymore and that now instead of thinking of him sick and not able to get pregnant, I think of him holding my baby, and you know what he said he gave the sweetest smile and I feel like he was immediately happy.
It’s funny how sometimes somebody that you don’t know tells you something that you already knew, but you couldn’t see, and it takes that person to open your eyes.
I just feel better now, a really negative thought that has been hunting me for a long time is finally gone. Bye Bye stupid thought! And I want to say THANK YOU to Darla for opening my eyes.
Sometimes is good to share personal thoughts and experiences, and today is one of those days.

Relaxing Friday!

Today is Friday Ladies! We get to relax and start this wonderful weekend. The weather website said that it’s supposed to be cold in the afternoon and night time, ideal for knitting while husband is at work! It will have to be tomorrow for me because luckily my husband is off tonight! So we are going out to have fun!

Last night I finished a hat it looks really nice, I am happy with the results.
Since all I’ve been knitting are hats, I fell like I want to start knitting a sweater or a bolero, something different. The only thing though is that I need yarn and I am broke right know. So I guess I will have to keep knitting small things until next Friday that I get pay, Ha! 
I have this beautiful hand spun soft merino wool mixed , and is approximately 135 yards that I bought I while ago at Etsy, but I don’t know what to make, because is not a lot. Any ideas will be appreciated!

And then I have these yarn that I bought in Argentina on my last trip, I have not clue about what kind of yarn is its, I am thinking silky hand spoon something and I haven’t decided what do I want to do with it either.

Tomorrow I might go visit a good friend of mine because yesterday was her Birthday, she is a wonderful person full of stories and she always makes me laugh. She lives with her sister, who I meet first and I love her like my aunt! Whenever I go to their house they make me feel like home, they make my favorite food, they give me hugs and auntie love. They are on her late 60’, so I am like the tiny one there, you know. So well see.

To finish this post I want to share with you a picture of my girls! Yes I have two doggies, Maggie May (Golden Retriever) and Mia Jam ( a black lab), they are the sweetest dogs and I love them to death. They are hanging out with me all day when I am home. Maggie Loves blankest and Mia Scarves! 
                                                                ☺  Maggie May☺
                                                                   ☺ Mia Jam☺

I hope you have a great weekend and have fun!
Hugs for all my readers!

When you knit, what do you think?

What a beautiful night yesterday, Happy for a lot of families and people, all the miners in Chile started to get rescued! After being in the mine for 2 and a half months! I was so glad for them and their families. So while knitting away I was watching the rescued, wauu I could not believe how tiny the capsule was, but they make it through so that was great!
Happy for them, the second miner said, “ the devil and god were fighting for two month, GOD won the fight! -This sentence makes my eyes watery-.

Well, changing the subject, I wanted to ask you something, when you are knitting do you feel like you have time to think? I do, I think a lot. Yesterday I thought about how fortunate my family and I were. We are healthy! I always think that health is the first thing you need to be happy, because you can have all the money in the world but sometimes is not enough to buy health! Right?
Another thing is that I've been working on a new pattern, new stitch, to send to the knitting contest. I've written the pattern down and today I need to take the pictures. It needs to be ready for Friday. Unfortunately I can't show it to you because you have to keep it secret until the calendar gets published, but it looks so cute!

Last thing I wanted to share was that yesterday when I arrived home a cute and friendly dog came out to say hi! She was adorable, after saying hi she took off. I came outside a few minutes later and there she was jumping up and down came running to say hi again. Then I saw a guy standing there and I asked him if it was his dog and he said no, but another one is here too! Well they were lost! Poor puppies...
I called my husband and told them the story and he called the hospital to see if we could get the owners info. We found out that one of them was named Cleo and the other one Shiva. I went inside and from my deck I heard a lady yelling Cleoooo!!! I felt relived when I heard that.
I run and said to my husband "I think I found the owners!" and run to encounter the lady. She was actually the owner and she felt more relived then me. Well this story has a happy ending and the doggies went home safely and happy for having an adventure. I felt good because we were able to help them.
to all my readers and thank you for stopping by!

My bubble yarn Shawl

Remember that I told you that last March I went to Argentina and I brought yarn? Well this is the bubble yarn that I bought down there.  I have a lot of different colors.
I love the way it came out; the bubbles are super soft and warm!
For this shawl I used US 35 needles, the yarn doesn’t have a specific name here in the US it’s called bubble yarn.

 I really like this shawl! It looks like it has little lights or something, doesn't it?
Today I am working on a new hat pattern to submit to the Knitting a Day pattern calendar since the dead line is on Friday I have to hurry!
Have a great Afternoon!

My new hair cut!

This is my new hair cut, the hair dresser took 8" out! It was a lot of hair! I am going to donate it. So It feels good and my husband really liked it!
Next hair cut I think I am going to go a little shorter, but for now it's just fine.

Hats, Hats and more hats!

Hi everybody, this post is going to be all about pictures, yes the ones that I told you last week I was going to take well I finally took them yesterday.

I was working on these projects:
I called this one My first completed Fair Isle hat.I really like the finished results. It took me a lot of patience and concentrations to knit, but It was worst it. Now I have to make a beautiful flower for it.

                                                                       Me Modeling, jijiji

 Pink and Brown Hat
 I truly love this one, it came out great, super girly with the pink. I just love the brown and pink combination.
Since I improvised this pattern I don't have it written down, i guess I should write because two people already asked me for it.

This Hat is very special, because I didn't mean to make like this, but after a few rows the stitch I was suppose to do had nothing to do with the I was doing, but I left it and it came out strange, so for that reason I called this hat "Strange Hat".

 I'm not a fan of the lace stitch, but since i never actually tried one I decided to give it a try this time.Wauu I love it! I was so wrong, this stitch looks so pretty and it's super easy to make!
I call this hat "Lace Hat"


Inspired by fall and Thanks Giving I crated this one, The Thanks Giving Hat, with warm colors and simplicity.

Finally I made a wonderful hat from " Just Hats"


These are my creations, so far. I hope you like them!
Hugs to everybody and happy knitting!

New Hair style for me ladies really soon!

I've always wanted to have a different hair cut, but I don't have the ovaries to just go and do it!
You see I have curly hair so it's not that easy to decide to have a new hair do.
I've been thinking about it a lot and I came to the conclusion that if i don't do it now, I will never going to.
So, on Saturday at 3:00pm I have an appointment with a stylist to have a new hair cut, and this time I am going to go short!

What I want is something like this hair cut that Jennifer Aniston has, not that I love her but I really like her hair style. Wish me luck and I will show my new me on Saturday!
 New, new, new is good.

The art of Fair Isle knitting

 As I said yesterday I have been exploring the art of Fair Isle Knitting, just a little more complicated. On one of my hats I was able to use my OWN chart pattern! Yes ladies and gentleman I always wanted to make one and I found myself lost on the paper, but now everything has changed.
Tell me something; Do you like Fair Isle knitting? Would  you like to create your own patterns and be able to print them out?
I found something really cool and I think is wonderful! It is a knitting chart generator! It's free and you can use it and let your imagination float and create the most beautiful patterns here is the link  tried this
Let me know what do you think.
I designed this pattern

I have to go know, almost time to go home and drink my mate and start knitting.
Love cold days!

Monday, October 4, 2010

Today is a beautiful day for knitting, rainy, gray, chili, Yes definitely perfect for knitting! Like yesterday afternoon, and that was what I did just knit. You see, with a day like yesterday I feel like watching girly movies and knit cozy and comfortable on my couch. Well my husband worked until 4 pm so I had plenty of time! Saturday I started working on a hat, with Fair Isle technique, sharing only two colors, but doing a complicated pattern. It was a hard pattern because if you got a little distracted you were fried! Un-kit and re-knit again! So it did require a lot of patience. Late in the afternoon my hat was ready, and I was a happy camper, I was extremely happy with the results!
I love the color combination that picked and the pattern itself!
I will be posting pictures later on today so you can see it.
It looks really cute!
This year I decided to take a lot of more risks at knitting, I want to tried difficult patterns and I want to knit me anther sweater. I love the designs on this book Twinkle's Big City Knits: 31 Chunky-Chic Designs, my favorite is the one called
 Rockefeller sweater 
Every time I see this Sweater my hands start to itch, I love it!
I have the patterns, I have the yarn I just need the needles US19 circulars. So we’ll see what happens.

Right know I am working on hats, because I have to have 10 ready in two weeks. I have knitted 5 so far so I am doing OK. You have to see them all! I'll take pictures later on to show you!
Hugs to everybody!

This is the time of year when I like to start making changes on my life.
I like to re-organized things, and make new decisions. I have wanting to take yoga, pilates or zumba classes for a very long time, and of course I always find a very nice excuse not to do it, and then another year goes by.
Last Monday I went to the Gym and took a Zumba class, OMG!!!!! What a class ladies!
I started thinking it was going to be easy, pssh this is nothing, I thought….after 15 minutes into the class and I was OMG! I need a break, where is my water!!!!!! I am so hot, wauuu I am sweating… after 55 minutes I was Happy, and destroyed!
I think Zumba is a really happy class, music, movements, you laugh a lot, you feel your energy levels rising really quick, but you also feel your body working really good, you work almost every part of your body dancing!!
 Well, when I got home I had a talk with my husband and told him that I wanted to join the Chinn Center Gym, he said “go ahead if it makes you feel good, do it!”. He is my sunshine! So, on Wednesday I become a member for a month! That same day, I took another Zumba Class and yesterday I went to do my YOGA!
I feel great, happy from inside out! Zumba gives me energy and my body works really hard to keep up with the flowing of the class, Yoga gives me peace, calm, balance, harmony, and my body works hard too!
Next week I am going to try Pilates! And if I like I will do the three classes alternatively.
So this is me today happy as a clown!
Today I am thinking about going to a Zumba class and then to the sauna to get detox!
I am loving my life, my family, my friends, my dogs and myself.
Saturday I have a Surprise Birthday party for my friend Vale, she turned 30 years old on Tuesday, so this Saturday her family and us are going to through her a surprise B-Day party!
Sunday Relax DAY!!!!
Hugs to all my readers and have a great weekend!!!!!

Mom loves me, i love my mom

I while ago a told you that when I got to Argentina  this last time my husband managed to record a little video of my mom and me, well here it is! This is one of my favorite videos ever, everytime I watch it my eyes get all watery and my heart gets super hipper happy! My mom is the one on white, she is waiting for me at the Airport in Buenos Aires, It's been a year since last time I visited her, and she didn't know I was coming to the back, the one in black is my aunt.
I hope you can feel the love that only a mom can give to a daughter, I love her with all my heart!

The pictures

Today is all about the pending pictures that I've promised for so long. Last night I got to uploaded all my pictures to the computer so I will have plenty of projects to show you.

First I would like to start with some of the yarn that I bought on my last trip to Argentina, I don't know the name of it or what is made of because it doesn't say, but it's extremely soft and fuzzy, love this yarn to knit scarf or something that will go around your neck, or a chunky baby sweater, it is out of this world! I wish you could touch it, I really do! Great scarfs are coming for this winter, would you like one? Let me know with time, because this yarn flies out of my hands!

Well, now I would like to show you some of my latest creations on necklaces. These ones are the ones I've mention on the last two posts. They already sold.
                           This is the Green Necklace set, made of green and yellow  turquoise.
This is one of my favorites,  It's called The Star set. For this set I used 925 silver and semiprecious black gold-stone.

Then I made a colorful necklace with some sort of shell that I brought from Argentina,

                                                             I call this one Chapitas set,

And this is the last set, I called it
                                                                Yellow Jade set

Well, these are some of my latest creations on jewelry, I hope you like them.
I am also working on some other necklaces with real strong colors and special combinations. I will post them when I am done.

If you are interested in any of my jewelry please email me at or leave me a comment.I don't put all I have in my shop.
 For now, I want to say thank you for being there for me, and I hope you have a great happy day!
Thank you for stopping by!
