Quick knit

We just got to Philadelphia today to spend the week with Warren’s family. I’m ever so thrilled that my dear cousin who lives in NYC will come over and spend a couple of days there with us too.  I wanted to make her something special but didn’t really have that much time so I thought some fingerless mittens would be a good project. Not only they are quick to knit but I always remember Ana Luisa having cold hands so it will actually be a very suitable gift. I think (and hope) that as a Pilates teacher she’ll even be able to wear them while working! My first choice of pattern was Fetchingbut as I have never done cables before I thought I’d better go for something I know I can handle without hiccups. I ended up going with Fingerless Mitts by Amanda Gil. This is a very simple pattern and I’m very pleased with the result. Just a note: this is actually my hand on the picture and the mittens look very stretched because my cousin’s hands are way smaller than mine.

Acabamos de chegar na Filadelfia para passarmos uma semana com a familia do Warren. Eu estou super feliz porque a minha prima querida que mora em Nova Yorque tambem vam passar uns dois dias aqui coma gente. Eu quis fazer uma coisa especial para dar a ela de presente, mas como nao tinha muito tempo achei que umas luvainhas sem dedo seriam o projeto ideal. Nao so sao rapidas de tricotar como tambem sempre me lembro da Luisa reclamar de estar com as maos frias o que as fazem o presente perfeito! A minha primeira escolha de modelo foi a Fetching, mas como eu nunca fiz cabos antes preferi um modelo simples que eu pudesse terminar sem percalcos. Eu acabei escolhendo o modelo Fingerless Mittens de Amanda Gill. E suoer simples e fiquei muito satisfeita com o resultado. So um detalhe: na foto as luvas aparecem bem esticadas porque elas foram feitas um tamanho menor para caber na Luisa.

Para os que leem em portugues me perdoem a falta de acentuacao pois o computador dos quais lhe escrevo nao tem configuracao para o portugues.
