Tracing away

 While the men in the family shoveled the snow that came down yesterday, under bitterly cold temperatures (15 deg F and super windy), I traced patterns from the Sept 2013 issue. Sometimes it's good to be the queen ;-)

Mientras que los hombres paleaban la nieve que nos cayó ayer, con temperaturas de 15 grados Farenheit, me puse a calcar patrones de Burda del mes de Septiembre del 2013. De vez en cuando sale bien el ser la única mujer en la familia ;-)

I traced 111 (oversized cardigan), 113 (cut on/batwing sleeve knit top) and ran out of tracing paper, but got most of 124 (bomber jacket) done.  I feel very accomplished. I am starting with the cardigan, these cold temperatures make me want to be wrapped up in comfortable and warm cardigans.

Calqué el 111 (un sweater super grande), el 113 un blusón con mangas tipo "murciélago" y una chaqueta tipo de pelotero, 124. Me siento muy satisfecha aunque se me acabó el papel de calcal y no pude terminar la chaqueta. Voy a empezar por el "cardigan"pues con este frio que tenemos por aquí me gusta la idea de estar envuelta en un sweater cómodo y calientito.

Talk to you soon!

¡Hasta pronto!


  1. The bomber jacket pattern looks really neat- I can't wait to see it made up. :) Also, what is up with the 15F?!?! I just checked our little weather station and it's 17F on our deck. This is nonsense!

    1. I know! It has been pretty nice recently. Oh well time to use all those sweaters Ive knitted...

  2. Sounds like a good deal to be queen! :)

  3. I love those oversized swesters and have been considering making one when our cooler weather arrives. (In the middle of a heatwave right now! - 38C or about 100F!)

  4. It is very nice to be the queen! Can't wait to see the fabrics you choose for these projects -- I've had my eye on the bomber pattern for a while now. Stay warm and safe!

  5. Aquí en Barcelona también hace frio y aunque la nieve esté a muchos kilómetros es agradable vestir un buen suéter. Estoy deseando ver tu proyecto.

  6. I am so impressed with your patience to trace more than one thing at once! I can. Only stand tracing when I know I'm about to get to sew something.

    It is so nice to have shoveling helpers. We got some new residents in our building this year and when i came home last Thursday for the first time ever somebody had already done the shoveling. It was a miracle!


I love hearing from you!
