Panama City´s historical centre (or the second historical centre, to be exact) is absolutely beautiful. It´s a mixed neghbourhood, with government houses and cathedrals and then schools and little, badly lit shops which smell like food and humidity. Walking there, there´s so much to see: a balcony here or a window there.
I foresee plenty of early morning drawing expeditions.

Just in time for the weekend, the July issue of my zine is now out! Download it here, it´s free! Just print it out front and back and then fold it in half and again in half and you´re set.
I´m looking forward to reading your comments!
In case you missed the June issue, it is available here.

Now that I have the photos of the shawl I mentioned the other day, I´m writing a proper post about it.
It´s a mix of the Boneyard and the Travelling Woman Shawls. I needed something easy yet beautiful (emphasis on the Boneyard part) to knit while moving from Buenos Aires and walking around there finishing the last paperwork. Some mindless knitting was also needed for the airplane and some later travels around central and north America.
Moving can be... hmm, very demanding, let´s just put it this way, smile, and carry on.
To finish the shawl i wanted it to have some lacy texture, so I went for the Travelling second part. One repeat of chart A and another one of chart B and the yarn was just enough. With emphasis on the "just".
And now I have a wonderful woollen shawl that is absolutely not needed in the tropical country I now call home.
Raveled here. More photos here.

Along with my friends in Argentina (ravelry group here), we ran a World Cup Challenge to accompany the match watching that was predicted. I didn´t watch many, as they were broadcasted at ungodly hours like 6 in the morning, or "totally-at-work-hours", like 9 am.
Still, I managed to finish my challenge (and to draw it too).
