News, well sort of...

I'm really excited! I've enrolled in sewing lessons, so far we haven't sewn anything yet, we're learning how to make our own patterns, which is going to be really helpful even if I end up using the comercial patterns. For this reason I bought my first sewing machine, it's a Singer "facilita" , it's very basic, looks and feels sturdy, but I wonder why I couldn't find reviews on it...















What else have I been doing? Oh! Knitting! lots of knitting. I made my little brother a ganomy hat (from EZ Knitter's Almanac) but it didn't fit right, so I made him a simple 1x1 rib cap.

















I made a small clutch for a friend's birthday. The yarn is Paton's SW (soy/wool) really soft and a very fast knit!















I'm frogging a thriftstore sweater. Mucho yarn!




















And last, but not least, I give you...well, we haven't named her yet, but isn't she cute? and huge! I guess she's only half chihuahua (my mom claims she kept a really close watch on her, but look at the size of her head!)
