more crafts–coloring class

Hi there.. today I have no card to show Smile I got late this morning and just take things easy.
I just finished coloring the cute hugging brother and sister image in… or almost. working with 3 different media on this image. I must say I really enjoy coloring these days. I had just around Christmas a bad time with the coloring. Nothing really was motivating me.
I guess part was just that I wanted to finish some of the Christmas gifts I had planned to make.

Well.. speaking of coloring … some of you know that I will be coming to Germany in 2012 and I am not only looking forward to see my family but also being invited by a wonderful store to teach a class. The class is not going to be held in Germany but in an other country of Europe I have never been before. I am extremely looking forward to it ESPECIALLY knowing that I will meet some girls of you I know from the blogging world – can not say more at the moment. I will tell more about it when I know the details of my trip, I will book my flight along with the schedule of the store, so until I have no flight booked I can not say much here.
If anyone would be interested in a class while I am in Europe – I will be in Germany for about 3 weeks and I have time to teach an other class – in Germany or out of country.You could just email me at
Claudiaesrosa at to speak about it.
Now I would love to show you a few photos of the handmade gifts I gave this year… no surprise for some of you who read my blog regular Smile more scarfs have been knitted

This is me wearing my brand new Herringbone cowl:
I used Malabrigo Natural cast on 220 stiches on a size 17 Addi Turbo round needle – the needle is especially important when doing this stich.

Here is a Debbie Bliss scarf all wrapped up for gift giving.

This one is used “Gap-Tastic” instructions – cast on 149 stiches in seed stich – purl 1/knit 1 off set in the round til I had 8 inches – I used about 2 complete skeins of the wonderful Malabrigo worsted in Natural and added 1 more inch from a 3 skein. Needle size used was a size 10 US. It created a soft fabric and a nice drape.
