Christmas Time

Added on by bubiknits.


oh oh, Santa is coming! I am very pleased when Christmas time definitely come to knocks to my door each year, and I feel like I am not so ready enough, I am always late with everything: the Xmas tree isn't yet done, I haven't planned the Xmas dinner, I don't know what to gift to my dearest, Oh... but I think that it is because I would love to prolong the magic of this period, and I would this magical days will never end.

I love the Xmas song echoing in the house and to sing and dance with my little one while we do decorations.

I am going to take a break from "All the time Connectivity" here are some picture I took on those calm and selfcare time.

Have a Lovely Xmas.

Autumn or Fall - this is my favorite season

Added on by bubiknits.

If you follow me for a long time, you may already know that this is my favorite season. It wasn't so when I was young, in my early age I couldn't wait for summer and the end of school, to meet friends and go to the sea, but growing up and getting age, Autumn or Fall, call it as you like it, is became my favorite season. Maybe because in this period I start to think about knitting everyday, designing more complex garments and because October is also the month of my Son's birthday, we turned Five and no need to say that I am so so in love with this little boy.

Something new happens this month in my life and I am really happy and proud of what I am doing, a step at a time, and I have to Thank You all the wonderful people that are at my side and believe in me and to those who are supporting and are giving me the opportunity of being myself to share the love and my experience about knitting to a larger audience online and inlive locally.

I am going to teach my first ecourse on about Knitting Swatches, Tension and even more. This new website was creates with a concept of an online communitity - and craft ecourses offered by experienced teachers - in mind, something that in Italy isn't still live and loud. I know it will take some time before the website starts to become popular, but I am happy to be the first teacher to open the dances.

So this past weeks I edited the class material, designed a new pattern as an exclusive for my ecouse students, and can't wait to start on November 10.

I also finished to knit my new knitwear design. It's a shawl, so I am going to start editing the pattern, this time it will be available in English and also in Italian. I asked my fellow follower for Ravelry  ID on the Facebook page if they want to be count into my possible testers list for the pattern when it will be ready, if you feel you want to be listed in too, send me yours on Facebook or Ravelry I may choose 8 testers very soon from the list.

That's all for now folks!

Have a wonderful Autumn Fall start!

Fabric and Crochet

Added on by bubiknits.

Designing is a slow process, it involve sketching, swatching,  and knitting before editing the pattern and then send it out to volonteer testers who will give you a complete vision of the pattern itself and maybe make corrections.

I am that kind of crafter that needs to rotate project to not get bored with that process, and since i love crochet and sewing as much as like I love knitting, I made a lot of crochet in the last weeks, due to the crochet + brunch event I am going to teach, but also some just for fun.

And while I was making the bicolor one, I decided to henanche it with fabric, and I love it! It's sturdier and it's perfect as yarn balls caddy or to contains small projects.

Did I show you this? maybe you saw a preview on Instagram, I made two sock/small knitting project bag some weeks ago.

September is almost gone, and It was a very busy month, also due to some family issues, but what I learnt from some life events that hurts my nervs is that Laughing Out Loud is the best Cure for everything!

See you soon!
