Adiós is the monthly series of crafty notes and captures of this beautiful world.
Today I am continuing our “tradition” and will take you on a walk around the town. April was busy and so beautiful. All the trees in town were in full bloom and I wish I had more time to walk around this month. I am so grateful that I can share it with you, it really pushes me to put everything aside, go out, explore and take photos to share them with you later. Yesterday I took my camera, and went up the hill from the town center to see what is hidden inside narrow streets.
I wasn’t disappointed! I became quiet enchanted by San Miguel’s doors – they always look like the entrance into some magical world… There is even a book of photography – “The Doors of San Miguel de Allende” by Robert de Gast – devoted entirely to these beauties.
The town always surprises you. You walk in a usual neighborhood, then hear the sound of water falling, discover a little bridge over a small waterfall and mysterious old stairs reaching to the sky…
What a beautiful afternoon it was! Thank YOU so much for dragging me outside! 🙂
April Crafty Notes
2 FOs, 3 WIPs and one tutorial.
I am in love with my two FOs this month! The cowl will make a perfect gift for my Granny and the sweater is so versatile and lovely to wear!
In May I also hope to give you the preview of the Moeke sweater pattern. I am so in love with this project and very pleased with how it turned out! Test knitting begins next week and you will be able to follow the process on Instagram!
I am also very happy that I came back to crochet properly and working on big projects. The dress will take a long time, but I know it will be worth it in the end. A dear knitting friend, Pat, who is a great seamstress, is helping me to figure out the slip dress for it. I love how we share our knowledge with each other! The cardigan turned out to be the perfect on the go project. Once you are done with the first couple of rows, the rest is a breeze – the stitch pattern is very basic and you can crochet with your eyes closed. I am hoping to get on the short road trip today and will definitely take it along with me!
I am very happy that many of you found the tutorial on the I-cord edge technique useful! I hope you will use it a lot!
Julie from Knitted Bliss and Melissa from Miso Crafty Knits organized the second #craftyblisschallenge – a 10-day Instagram challenge where you are supposed to interpret the prompts and post a photo every day. I’ve never had a 10-day streak post on Instagram, only in the first #craftyblisschallenge and I am loving it so much! I’ve found some wonderful crafters and great photography!
That’s it for April! I wish you a wonderful and joyful May!
