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.
Here are some pics of the hat and me.

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!
