Christmas Scarfs Part II


For the last two Christmas I've been making scarfs for my boyfriend.
This was the one I made this year. I also made a matching beret.

I patterned it myself. And I had the idea for adding a zipper because I wanted to make him a cowl but wasn't sure if he would like that. So the zipper would allow him too use it as a normal scarf and also add some interesting detail.


Nos últimos dois anos tenho oferecido ao meu namorado um cachecol feito por mim.
Este foi o deste ano. Fiz também um gorro para combinar.

O design é meu. E tive a ideia de colocar um zipper porque queria fazer uma gola mas não tinha a certeza se ele ia gostar. Assim, o zipper permitir-lhe-ia usá-lo como um cachecol normal e também dar um detalhe interessante.

Christmas Scarfs Part I


For the last two Christmas I've been making scarfs for my boyfriend.
This was the first one. Everyone thinks it is weird, and more so on a guy. But he was the one who asked for something really out of the ordinary and he likes it.

I used this pattern. And it is very easy and you can make it in any size. 

Nos últimos dois anos tenho oferecido ao meu namorado um cachecol feito por mim.
Este foi o primeiro. Toda a gente diz que é estranho, ainda para mais para um rapaz. Mas ele foi quem pediu algo mesmo fora do normal e gostou.

Usei este modelo. É muito simples e podem fazer do tamanho que desejarem.

New Year's Dress

I have been away from the blog for a long time... I guess college and Christmas holidays do not combine with blogging and much less so with making projects.

I want to show you a dress I made last year and that I wore for New Year's.

I used a Burda Style's pattern.

Tenho estado afastada do blog há muito tempo...  Parece que a faculdade e as festas de Natal não combinam com blogging e muito menos com novos projectos.

Quero mostrar-vos um vestido que fiz o ano passado e que usei no Ano Novo.

Usei, como sempre, um modelo Burda Style.

5. No tag back (but please leave me a comment on this post with the URL to your Liebster post so I can learn more about you)!

So here goes... a little bit about me...
I live in Portugal. I study medicine in Coimbra, but my family divides time between the beach near Lisboa and the countryside in Alentejo. So I am always moving around this little country.
My boyfriend is spanish. We met at a Underwater Hockey World Championship. We both play this sport. 
I learn to sew and knit when I was as little as 3 years-old. I started making my own clothes in 2009 when my brother offer me my own sewing machine.
I am a Tv series-aholic (favourite thing to do while knitting!!). My favourites right now are The Walking Dead; Criminal Minds; Bones; Once upon a time; Parenthood; Hart of dixie; Dexter and Castle. And waiting for Game of Thrones!

Now, Diya has asked me:
[1] What are a few blogs that you read on a daily/weekly basis?

[2] Which is your favourite sewing pattern?
Hmm... this is a hard question for me. So far I loved working with Kasia; Burda Style Winter Cape and Burda Style 132 4/2011.

[3] How long have you been blogging?
4 months

[4] What project(s) are you currently working on?
A knitting sweater I cast on 2 years ago. I am knitting a present for my boyfriend, but it is a secret!... :P 

[5] What is one of your New Years Resolutions?
Maybe study more and knit less... :S

[6] Did you write a tutorial on your favourite project you made?
More a less. I am working on real tutorials for the projects in hand to share with you guys but these days my time has been limited.

[7] Do you have pets?
Yes. I am a dog person. They mean as much to us as any person on our family. We recently lost one of our family dogs, the baby one (a 4 year-old Lab) and we are still mourning him (I still cry everytime I think of him being gone). Now they are 4. 
Mine is a 7 year-old tricolour Bordie Collie, named Cookie. She was abandoned at our door.

When I do, I go to Pull and Bear, Zara or HM.

See my boyfriend and family.

The Hobbit Cape and the XL orange bag.

[11] How long have you been blogging and what inspired you to start a blog?
I followed a lot of blogs for some time and I was showing my projects on Burda Style community, but I always felt the need to create my own blog. This summer I was house-sitting while my parents were away so I had a lot of time and decided to finally start my blog.
