A couple of weeks ago I visited my hometown and snapped these pictures while taking a long walk on the seaside, breathing the fresh air and resting my eyes on the endless horizon. I just got the film developed and scanned, and they made me a bit homesick. They remind me how much I miss the sea in Madrid, but someday I'll live by the sea again.

Yesterday I gave this Fair Isle yoke sweater to my friend Jimena. Back in November she asked me if I could knit her a sweater, and after choosing the yarns, the design for the yoke, and many hours knitting, the sweater was done. I think it's the most beautiful thing I've knit so far, and I really wanted to keep it for myself. But just seeing how well it fit her, and how much she liked it, made me the happiest girl ever. Now, I should make one for myself :)
Oh! If you're interested on the pattern, I didn't use any, just followed a "recipe" by Elizabeth Zimmermann. You can see more details on my Ravelry account, I'm juliabe there as well.
