The start of my version of Kate Davies’ Cockatoo Brae from her book Yokes. I’m using Garnstudio Drops Alpaca and 3.25mm needles.
1. Making a sweater instead of a cardigan (but I kept the “steek” stitches)
2. Making this TOP down instead of BOTTOM up
3. Still undecided on the sleeve length, will figure this out once I’ve finished the body, and then determine sleeve length depending on yarn left over.
While in Boticas on Saturday we visited the Art Exhibit of Nadir Afonso, I’d never heard of this artist, but I loved his style. Here are some of the pictures I took .
Today we, the Tricotadeiras do Porto, were invited to Boticas for lunch and some knitting. I want to thank the Bia for the invite along with everyone involved in the organization of today for the warm reception and for giving us a lovely experience. We were astounded at the reception we got: the people were kind and welcoming, the food was delicious and plentiful and the lovely gift of wine and a book we received at the end, will make this an unforgettable visit. I will definitely be visiting again very soon, as we only got to see a tiny bit of the lovely village and surrounding area.
I’ll leave you with my impression of Boticas.
Was only supposed to start this tomorrow while we’re visiting Boticas, but I had nothing “simple” to work on during the last get together last month, so I started my version of the Tubularity Cowl by Martina Behm using my CPF 3 yarn from Dyed by Alfinete.
