I have already mentioned how much I likeVickie Howell Sheep(ish) yarn by Caron! The perfect roving that mix acrylic and wool and enhance the stitches. The color pallete is perfect! And the price is spectacular!
I started to swatch with different colors, looking for an elegant curvy horizontal shape and the Aimée Cowl came up! I love the way that the stitch motif creates volumes and depressions that simulate cables! And the I-cord Finishing puts everything pretty well together! I hope that you appreciate this fast knitting project! Read more
There’s something about San Francisco’s Bay Area that always make me feel inspired! I’m positive that a big part of this is related to the Tibetan Buddhist retreats and voluntary work at Nyingma organizations, which have been nourishing my life for the last 12 years.

The airport ride announcing the beginning of precious teachings. The memory of last minute shopping at Berkeley’s Andronico’s, Whoole Foods or at Elephant (that do not exist anymore), rushing through the hills, for some special ingredients for the TAP (Tibetan Aid Project) Fund Raise Dinner, Or at Downtown Berkeley working at the finishing touches for the Dharma Publishing Bookstore opening with my dearest sangha friend Magda!

I’m super fan of this knitter writer (or maybe writer knitter? Not sure?!) and I’m grateful for her inspiration on this project! We met in São Paulo last month and she was looking for some yarn to knit the Boho cowl! Working with some math here and there I ended up creating a new cowl…. Ceres’s cowl, of course! A super fast accessory to knit in lace pattern that only takes one ball of bulky yarn. Read more
like to think that one of the precious things in life is the wisdom of allowing ourselves to be positively impacted by daily beautiful things. For a few minutes just forget about what is bothering us and contemplate what is available to us at the moment. After admiring a landscape, or some flowers or even children playing together, maybe we can heal ourselves from a momentarily bad humor crisis. Read more
