Às compras... / Shopping...
Acabei por trazer fio Tentação da Rosários 4 para fazer a boina Urchin da Knitty de Outono. Quando vi este modelo, pensei imediatamente neste fio e assim que vi que a tensão era equivalente, ficou logo na lista de coisas a fazer. Já a comecei e tricota-se tão bem que está quase pronta.
I followed Glaucia’s suggestion and went to Rua Acácio Paiva 5C, in Alvalade, to take a look to a yarn shop that goes to close in the end of this year. It has very interesting yarns (Katia, Rosarios 4…) in a big variety of colours, and very nice prices too.
I bought the beautiful yarn Tentação from Rosários 4 to make the Urchin beret from Knitty Fall issue. I already started knitting and it knits so well that it’s almost done.
I left here another suggestion: if you walk up the street a little, you’ll find Ó Chá, a Portuguese tea room from oriental inspiration, with an impressive variety of teas and tasteful options for an afternoon tea or a light meal. I recommend the scones with butter and jam. A perfect manner to conclude shopping! (Note: at Saturdays, tea room is open but the yarn shop is closed.)
It has arrived already my Vogue Knitting Holiday 2007. And so little ago arrived my VK Fall 2007, in a gorgeous 25th anniversary issue, and the first issue of my subscription.
