Life is a Celebration.

I find it amazing having to wait an entire year to see a plant bloom like this. It is a much awaited celebration for me as this little plant, my Wheinachts cacti, have come a long way together. Born in Switzerland and now living in Mexico it reminds me that many wonderful things in life are worth waiting for!

Just like my little cacti that starts blooming whenever the temperature goes down I have started to knit winter hats. Besides the Cherry beret, last week I decided to knit another hat of a "Zhivago-esque" style from VK that was fast and fun to do. What do you think?
Oh! and I finally finished my "Granny Smith" top! It took me more time than it was supposed to but I am happy with the results. It was knitted in a 100% cotton yarn and it will be among the first things I will wear as soon as the weather goes up again.


And to end up another week of celebration I baked some pear & granola muffins to accompany a nice cup of espresso (Lavazza please!), Twinings English Breakfast tea or a hot coco.

If anyone cares for the recipe feel free to ask for it.

Hasta Pronto!

Rita and Lucy, you are always so nice, I appreciate your comments!
I will give the muffin recipe on my next entry. Oh yes, I love cacti too. That little one in the picture warmed up my heart when I was spending Christmas so far away from my country and because we have so many cacti in Mexico I just got it. When I came back it survived the 10 hour flight in my suitcase, (yes, I guess I violated some laws but could not just leave it). It loves the weather over here!

And thanks to you for your kind compliment too! I'm about half way through making i-cords (for straps) for the latest top and will hopefully show it in a few days. I will be so embarrassed if it turns out ugly! All the best,
Patrizia. :)
