4 needles knitted mittens

The title of this post sounds like a tongue twister:
“I have one knitted mitten knitted with four knitting needles. If I hadn’t knitted the mitten with four knitting needles, it won’t be my four needles knitted mitten.”

Phew! I had a hard time even writing that! 🙂

Yesterday I went to a workshop in one of my favorite shops here in Barcelona: Nido de abeja. The class was about knitting with double point needles. I’d never knitted in the round with that kind of needles so I had to try.

This was the result after 4 hours…

Chalk Paint workshop

Last week I attended a workshop on how to use Chalk Paint (not to be confused with chalkboard or blackboard paint). I really didn’t know what this kind of paint was, but my friend Raquel wanted to go to this workshop and I’m always open to try new things, as long as they are calm and crafty 😉
So, we went to this whimsical place called Mercantic in a town near Barcelona named Sant Cugat, where there is this lovely shop, where a very nice lady explained to us the basics of this kind of paint.
