Curitiba will host, next month, another edition of the Brazilian Congress of Knitting.
Just minutes ago, while planning lessons, I realized that this is the fourth edition of the conference, which brings together knitters from all over Brazil! I had the good fortune of being present since the first edition and hope to continue for many years!
Have you ever taken part in this event? If your answer is yes, then again we can celebrate together the wonderful possibility of a whole weekend dedicated to knitting! If you haven’t been to any Brazilian Congress Knitting yet, you will have another opportunity to improve your knitting knowledge, learn new skills, meet people from all over the country who, like you, love this craft, see and buy the new launchings in yarn, needles and accessories! The 4th Brazilian Knitting Congress will be held in Curitiba, May 1 to May 3. You can find more information on the event website. Just click on the link here:
Can you imagine how excited I became when I met Kimberly Golynskiy and her new project “Around the world in 80 skeins”?
As a crafter, I’m amazed by the friendships and connections made online, among people from all over the world. There’s no more such a thing as loneliness when we think about how many knitters, crocheters, seamstress etc etc, we can find online to share ideas.
We are celebrating Trico Trico Yarns 1st year: Get 50% off on my Ravelry’s patterns in partnership with Trico Trico Yarns, until Friday (March 21st, 2014) – Izabel, Allegra and Halona Shawls!

Halona shawl was “born” right after the shawl Allegra. I like to think about them as a pair, since they are both mostly worked with the pleasant garter stitch, with a few lacy rows formed by elongated stitches. After the elaborated Izabel shawl, I thought it was a good time for projects that we can knit without too much thinking. Something that we can call “laid-back knitting”. Read more
I’m not writing too much lately because there’s a lot of action going on. Workshops in different places, a few knitting trips and new designs have been the reason for what I like to call “truly good times”.
