True Friends x2

Two different version of the True Friend Sweater by Veera Valimaki, mine and Joana B. Both of us are still in the process of finishing them, although Joana B. is slight further as she already has one sleeve completed, and I still have both of them to do.

WIP True Friend

Here’s the sweater I’m working on right now. I love this construction!!! Just the ribbing at the bottom and the sleeves left to do.

FO Japan Love

So I ended up having to rip out quite a bit at the bottom, because the sweater was way too long, but now it’s the perfect length and ready to wear. I’m super pleased with this.

Braga Get together

Yesterday I joined some friends in Braga for their monthly knitting get together. I had a really good time, the place we were at was fantastic, I’ll have to get some better photos next time.

Since the weather was so good, we had a table set up outside where we enjoyed the fresh air, drinks, and great company, including several kitties walking around. Thank you ladies for inviting me and making me feel welcome in your group.
