On the needles

One of my knitting goals for this year was to make a blanket. I got the yarn as a birthday present from my mother in law, but I must have misread the pattern as I only have enough wool for half of the blanket. Do women ever outgrow “pregnancy brain” or is it just me? Anyhow, I was so set on the mitered pattern for the blanket that although I was ready to let go of the throw I wasn’t ready to let go of the mitered squares. I then went on to research what else I could make with the amount of wool I have and that is mitered. Hooray for Ravelry pattern search! I found Coco Vee Cape, this beautiful wrap just perfect for my mitered squares. It’s so addictive to knit the squares that the project is moving quite fast. I’m hoping to have it finished before we go away in about three weeks time. Watch this space.

 

Coco Vee Cape - working progress

 

Uma das minhas metas desse ano no tricô era fazer uma manta. Eu ganhei os fios de presente da minha sogra, mas eu devo ter lido a receita errado e só tenho o suficiente para metade. Será que algum dia o meu cérebro vai voltar ao normal ou “cérebro de grávida” dura para sempre? Enfim, eu gostei tanto do quadrado modular da manta que eu quis achar outro projeto que pudesse usá-los. Viva o mecanismo de procura do Ravelry! Eu achei Coco Vee Cape, um xale modernoso lindo que é perfeito para os meus quadrados. A receita modular é um vício e projeto está se desenvolvendo rapidamente. Eu espero acabá-lo antes de viajarmos, em três semanas. Fique de olho!
