New day, New creations

Today is a good day, I feel a lot better, and everything is a lot clear. It funny how sometimes 24 hours can change things or feelings. A person might find a solution in that amount of time. Well today is Wednesday a day before Thanksgiving I haven't bought the Turkey yet, what a mess! This is going to be the first year that I will be making the turkey by myself! Will see how it comes out! Any tips for beginners will be highly appreciated. Wish me luck! It's going to be fun!
You see today I am going to share with you two more creations that I finished and I never posted, remember that I told you that I took pics last Sunday? Well this are some of those pics.
I made this wonderful cowl or neck warmer, if you could just touch the yarn! You have not idea how soft and thick this yarn is. It's soooo soft! Like a cloud (or Nube in Spanish)! That's why I call it
                                                                    Maiz  Nube Cowl 

I really do like the color, so rich for this fall, and the buttons are from a little shop in Argentina that only sells buttons, and these ones are tree buttons, it's like the wood has been cut straight from the tree and painted.

I also made a hat, kind of like a slouchy hat with a small pattern.The yarn is wool and is really soft.
I really like how the purples blend and form a nice color all together.I called this one
                                                            The Purple Slouchy Hat
So, very happy with these two projects, I really like them. I hope you like them too.
For now I have to go to lunch, and I need to go buy the turkey breast!
Hugs for you my friends,

I need to talk

It's almost 10:00pm and I really feel like posting. Why because my heart is feeling achy, because I was knitting and some tears were dropping on my knitting, because is so much going on in my life right now that is over whelming, and because one more time words are coming out of my pores and I need to write. Is this what a writer feels?
Well tonight my heart is saying write Sabrina write as fast as you can, and that's what I am doing.
I was knitting my sweater, god knows that this sweater is feeling, me, my hands, my heart, my fears, and my passions. Tonight I can say that knitting is my therapy, tonight I can say that sometimes it keeps me sane.
This sweater is my own interpretation of what  Jane Austin would knit, (at least that was my idea). The problem is that now it turned out to be that plus my own interpretation of including knitting in difficult times.
Even though sometimes I am thinking a million things at the same time and my mood is not the best all my stitches are more even than ever! My knitting tension is perfect!
I called this cardigan :                             Hay amor, amor cardigan.

           This particular stitch has a lot of meaning to me, call me crazy if you want I don't care.                                        
This is how is coming out so far, I like it. The yarn it's just the regular Lion Brand acrylic yarn (I got it on sale $.021 a skein) because god knows that I like good yarn, but at this moment I am broke, so I use whatever I have and I can afford; It knits well is warm and is usable.
Ladies, tonight  I needed a escape and so I came here. It's that the right thing to do? I don't know, but I feel better.
Good night, and many hugs for you.

Lot of work today

I have been working a lot today, uploading all my finished projects to my Etsy shop. Finally the day was nice enough to let me take pics, well I have to say that I was on the mood for it as well, which made everything a lot easier.
I have a lot to show you, many new projects and some of them very interesting ones.
I decided that I'm not going to upload all the pics for my new project, but instead some of them and then you can go see the rest here. What I do want to show you is this cool project which is called

                                                                   "The Magic Scarf"
 You can use it as a scarf, very warm, soft and light, or maybe if it gets chilli you can just use it as a sweater!
                                                                  How cool is that?
I hope you like it, and I will show more of my projects later on.
Have a great Sunday, and enjoy the rest of it!

I want Coastal Knits!

What a wonderful book full of wonderful patterns!
I would love to buy this book, but it will have to go to my wishing list, since I am broke right now.
But I have to say that I've enter a contest at Knitted bliss to win this book and maybe, who knows, I get lucky!
So many beautiful patterns, people are saying that the book is so well written and the pictures are great.
So well see if one of these days I'll get it.

Talk to you later.

For my readers

Life has been really tough on my family and me these past months.
I had to go to Argentina as an emergency trip at the end of September, because my dear father was and is very ill. All I have to say is that since September life has been really sad. We went trough a loT, I felt the necessity to tell my readers why of me disappearing all the sudden. Well this is my reason.

I got back from Argentina just like a week ago, my father is stable but his health is very delicate. I don’t know when I would have to go back, but I wish I was there helping him and my mother. She is really taking care of him 24/7. It’s a lot of work! You have not idea. I prefer to keep the details for myself.
My heart is broken in a million pieces, my dad and I are really close and just the idea of loosing him makes me deeply sad.
I do want you “my readers” to know, that I miss writing and I miss making projects and showing them to you, but my mind it’s to busy right now, trying to live at two places at the same time.

Last Friday, after taking to my mother my mother for a while she said “ why don’t you knit something for you, to keep your mind busy in something else?” I said, “ How could I? She said, “ Hija (daughter) is good for you. You should start something, it doesn’t mean that you are going to stop thinking about what’s going on here, it will just mean that your mind will rest for a little while”.
So, because mom is “always right”, I did start knitting something, all for me this time. It’s a raglan cardigan top down, and my mom was right, it did take my mind away from the problems for a while. It’s coming out really good so far. I like it. I guess it will be another garment with a deep meaning. I always knit something meaningful, so I can remember and in the future will always have a story to tell in every single one of my stitches.

To close this post, I would like to say that we should enjoy every member of our family as much as we can, when we can. Mom and Dad are the ones who always love us, no matter what. We should never forget that.
Many hugs to my readers, and I thank you for hanging in there.
