This is Paula giving us presents.
From left to right: Paula, Carla, Gaby, Michelle, Vik, Ale and Frani.
Was this a success or what???
These are the things Paula brought all the way from Chile for me!!!
Two magazines full of patterns. I'll have a hard time trying to decide what to knit first! And some hand- dyed yarn I had told her I loved when I saw it on her blog. And a cute shawl pin!!
Three different circular needles!!! Now I have no excuse.... I will learn to knit in the round.
A ball of 100% natural linen in the most beautiful grape colour.
THANK YOU PAULA!!! I am so grateful for your kindness and for sharing this lovely morning with us.

In order to be able to actually see the pattern, I've had it enlarged threefold.
On the enlarged pattern, I highlighted the placket shaping, I marked where the neck shaping starts, and I corrected all the mistakes I had found while knitting the back.
At the moment I'm knitting with four balls of yarn - it is as messy as it looks!
Tomorrow is our Trans Andean Blogger Knitter Meeting! I'm meeting Paula at her hotel and we are meeting with Vik, Gaby, Ale and Francine at Milana. I'm sure there's going to be a lot of yarn, needles, chatting and coffee involved!!!

On Nov 6 Paula suggested a game. Everybody should tell their most memorable "piropo"
Whenever I remember the piropo that made me winner, I cannot help but laugh!!!
"Hey, Blondie (my hair was golden blond at that time) I'm gonna make you a saliva baby-doll"
Today Paula announced I WON I WON I WON!!!!

I started beading this necklace, and then I don't know why I never finished it.
It just needed the final finishings. It only took 10 minutes:
And since I have only been posting about the Vogue Knitting Project I thought this would be a nice change.

It itches a lot. I cannot open my eyes when I wake up in the morning.
I cannot go to work.
Most importantly: I cannot go swimming!!!! I'm so upset. Especially now that I was swimming more and more every time I went to the swimming pool. I don't think I ever mentioned this before, but I used to swim A LOT - like 500 laps - three times a week, for a long time. Then I stopped swimming altogether when I moved and started living with hubby and changed jobs. I started swimming again last month, and I have been feeling so good about it.
Anyway, I'm so mad.
Here, look at my eye.
Do you see how small it looks?
Anyhow, the doctor told I was not allowed to go swimming, but he said it was ok for me to go to the gym. I have just arrived from the stretching class, and from yoga. Ommmm... still feel like never talking to husband again.
On the knitting side, this is how much I've knit:
I found more and more mistakes in the pattern (rows 75 and 77). Do these people even check what they print????
I have just finished knitting with 5 balls, and I'm down to 3 again. Oh my, I didn't think it would be that hard to knit intarsia!
However, I'm loving the way the project is coming along. I think it is so pretty and so girly!!!
