Casa da Quintã

I highly recommend a stay at Casa da Quintã. If you’re planning a trip to Northern Portugal and want a nice bed & breakfast place to stay located in a valley between Marco de Canaveses & Amarante, then this is definitely the place to stay at. The owners are extremely nice and make everyone feel welcome and part of the family. Here are just some of the things you might see if you decide to visit.

OAK16-Jujuy – Complete

Here is my completed shawl, using the left over yarn from my sweater.

160430-doggies-005 In case you didn’t know, a blocking shawl needs a “bodyguard”, never know who might come around trying to take off with it.

160505-FO-OAK16-jujuy-002160505-FO-OAK16-jujuy-003

Slightly different to the original as I was using left over yarns, but I love how it turned out!!

HPK-08 Hidden Stairways

I don’t think I showed the last pair of socks I managed to knit for the Harry Potter KAL hosted by Katie from the Inside Number 23 podcast.

These are the Hidden Stairways by Erica Lueder, and I knit them using Regia Design Line Kaffe Fassett in colour 03871. I LOVE this colourway.

GIVEAWAY!!!

So for the first time ever I’m hosting a giveaway, and here are the reasons why:

  1. My blog is 8 years old
  2. I have posted over 1000 posts on my blog
  3. I have 500+ followers on my blog
  4. There are almost 500 followers on my Facebook page, RGOriginals
  5. There are  close to 50 subscribers  on my Youtube channel, RGO Knitorama
  6. There are 25 members on my Ravelry group, RGO Knitorama
  7. I have just completed my 10th episode

These numbers might not seem like a lot to some, but seeing as I never expected any of it, it’s a good enough reason for me to celebrate and host this giveaway.

The prizes are 3 lovely “cakes” of yarn, Olívia by Ovelha Negra, very generously donated by the very kind and lovely owner of Ovelha Negra, Joana.
