Last Saturday we were almost mugged by two girls who tried to steal my camera. There go our prejudices regarding who looks suspicious and who doesn´t, because they looked absolutely normal, they could be your teenage kid´s friends. Or your kid, actually. Grrr.
Anyway, for some unknown reason we both fought back and I got to keep my camera, as well as all other valuables I was carrying (ID, basically, I don´t even want to think about losing my ID card here and having to go to the police station to report it - been there and it isn´t nice). Well, all this to say that I have my camera and I can still take pictures with it.
And that´s what I did. I took pictures of the vest I finished for my younger niece:
And I even took pictures to its picot edging, which I learnt specially for this project, as crochet is just not my thing (or maybe I should say crochet wasn´t my thing?):
And documented my older niece´s matching vest:
(both vests are Signé Summer Top by Lisbeth Kjeldsteen. Ravelled here.)
I also photographed some sketches for a new pattern for abbrigate* - my first pattern, how exciting! - to send to my sister in London:
And then I took lots and lots of pictures of the blooming jacarandas here in the city. November is definitely the best month to visit Buenos Aires.
I´m thankful for having my camera! And for everything, really.
