A lot of things!!!

I bought a new yarn last Monday, I think...
You can't really tell the colors from this picture, I thought it was a good idea to take the picture in the sun that came through the window this afternoon in my living room, but they seem fade... it has blues and purples...
I started a cowl!! I'm following this pattern, it's free, it's not for beginners, but it's simple to follow and once you get the rythm of it it's very simple...

This is how much I've done until now...

I went to my LYS yesterday to knit and chat, and a woman arrived that wanted help with a snowflake pattern... I'm pretty sure that it was Lucy's pattern (at Attic24) but the pattern sheet she had didn't show the source... anyway, the owner of the store wasn't there, and the vendor at that time just knits so she couldn't help her, but told the woman that I could help her and that I was an expert crocheter!!!!! how's that!!!!!
So I sat up straight and put a smile on my face and proceed to help her with her snowflake pattern... she had a bit of trouble counting and knowing which stitch was what, but she managed to make 2 on her own... and I made 2 while helping her, before returning to my cowl... I used the scraps of my cabled hat for the snowflakes and I LOVED how they turned out!.
I don't know if I want to block and starch them... I like them so much like this!
I was also playing with Puff stitch flowers, you can find the how to here and here. This is what I made... one with the same yarn as the snowflakes and the hat, the other one with cotton scraps from my girl dresses...
So after a while, the store owner arrived as well as more women, and they were intrested in the flowers and the cowl... and guess what!!???

I've been ofered a space there to give a class and/or sell my things next semester when (and if) I get my work authorization for this place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm really really happy!!! it astonish me that the owner of a yarn store says that I'm a great crocheter!!! it makes me happy, smile and warms my soul...
And another woman started asking me what type of classes could I give and if it would be possible to make them on Saturdays...

Crazy!! fun!!! exciting!!!!!!!!! yyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeiiiiiiiii!!!!!!!!!!!

 Ahem, ahem....

Two last things.... I made a veggies quiche for dinner on Wednesday....  was delicious...
and I bought a small porcelain Nativity set at a Christmas sale...

Uff!!! that was long and with all kind of themes... LOL...
Hope you have a great weekend!!!

See you soon!

By the way, do you have the recipe for your quiche ... I'm not usually big on them but this looks delicious (as you said). Have a great weekend.

  3. Hello! I don't recall how I found my way to your blog - probably a crochet pattern from ravelry? Anyway, I just wanted to say that I love it! Your crochet work and enthusiasm for life are both inspiring. Thank you!
