(not exactly a) Cloud





Another hoodie for my collection, it seems I cannot get enough of them. I really like this pattern, especially the puff sleeves and the i-cord bindoffs. It is a lot of stockinette stitch but it goes quickly, even in small needles.

At the very end I decided not to do the Cloud pocket, but maybe I'll change my mind someday (I'm keeping some of the yarn on stash, just in case). The front seemed a little empty without it, so I opted for some flowery embroidery instead.






Pattern: (Get off my) Cloud, by Kate Davies
Yarn: Wensleydale Longwool Sheepshop 4 ply (brown - 5.5 skeins, fennel - 1 skein)
Needles: 3.25/3.5 mm


Changes: added a bit more waist shaping, and slightly changed the sleeve decreases (I made a more gradual decrease than just the final k2tog).
Finally, I didn't like the way my hood hem turned out, so I sewed in a little bit of a lace ribbon to hide it:

This is very pretty! My new year's resolution 2009 was to learn to knit but so far I'm still stuck at scarf level :/

Olá!

Chamo-me Catarina, e consegui o teu contacto através do Blogue "Blogs de Artesanato em Portugal".
Eu tambem sou artesã e decidi fazer um Blogue de Venda de Artesanato Virtual para que todos os artesãos podessem expor os seus trabalhos e consequentemente vendê-los, pois acho que fazemos coisas muito interessantes, e merecem ser divulgadas.

No blogue tambem poderás encontrar informações sobre feiras, falar com outras(os) artesãs(aõs), partilhar conhecimentos, e quem sabe ter a oportunidade de participar em feiras.

Para participar basta mandar um mail com algumas fotos dos teus trabalhos, um pequeno texto sobre o que fazes, nome, o endereço do teu blog ou site, mail, contacto, morada da loja (se tiveres).

Eu depois faço um post com todas as informações e com uma hiperligação para a tua página.

Mas para ja convido-te a visitares o blog, que ainda está a dar os primeiros passos.

Hey.

A bank is a financial institution that accepts deposits and channels those deposits into lending activities. Banks primarily provide financial services to customers while enriching investors. Government restrictions on financial activities by banks vary over time and location. Bank are important players in financial markets and offer services such as investment funds and loans. In some countries such as Germany, banks have historically owned major stakes in industrial corporations while in other countries such as the United States bank are prohibited from owning non-financial companies. In Japan, banks are usually the nexus of a cross-share holding entity known as the keiretsu. In France, bancassurance is prevalent, as most banks offer insurance services (and now real estate services) to their clients.

The level of government regulation of the banking industry varies widely, with countries such as Iceland, having relatively light regulation of the banking sector, and countries such as China having a wide variety of regulations but no systematic process that can be followed typical of a communist system.[url=http://projectcontrol.v3host.nl]CLICK HERE[/url]

Olá Tânia,
Gostei muito da tua camisola. Ainda estou a aprender a tricotar e se não houver regras muito precisas, não chego lá, por isso não consegui tirar o modelo do site que referiste. Podes partilhar comigo como fazer esta camisola?
Obrigada,Patrícia

To be a upright human being is to be enduring a kind of openness to the far-out, an cleverness to guardianship undeterminable things beyond your own manage, that can govern you to be shattered in unequivocally exceptional circumstances as which you were not to blame. That says something exceedingly weighty thither the get of the ethical compulsion: that it is based on a trust in the unpredictable and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a spy than like a sparkler, something kind of tenuous, but whose mere item beauty is inseparable from that fragility.
