Atardecer Poncho & Dublin & Northern Ireland Trip


As promised, here is my latest make. This is the Atardecer Poncho, pattern here
I made it with: 

Natura Just Cotton Yarn
Colour 03 Sable
Just over 2 skeins = 108 gr
4.5 mm hook

I love the colour as it goes with nearly everything, specially as lots of my summer clothes are white, sand, beige, etc. . . 

Como prometí, aquí os enseño mi ultima creación. 
Poncho Atardecer, patron aqui

Lo he hecho con:

 Hilo Algodon Natura Just Cotton 
Color 03 Sable
un poquait mas de 2 ovillos = 108 gr
ganchillo del 4.5 mm 



Pin it, share it, spread the love. . . 

Podeis hacer un pin (Pinterest), compartirlo . . .





Before I forget let me tell you I'm so excited as I have had my first 4 sales in my Etsy shop !! hurray !!

And now a few (just a few. . .) pictures of my last trip to Ireland and Northern Ireland. 

We went from Dublin to Belfast and stopped at Downpatrick Cathedral, where St. Patrick's remains are believed to be buried.

Antes de que se me olvide dejarme que os diga lo contenta que estoy ya que he tenido mis 4 primeras ventas en mi tienda Etsy !!! hurra !!

Y ahora, algunas fotos de mi ultimo viaje a Irlanda e Irlanda del Norte. 

Fuimos de Dublin a Belfast  paramos en la Catedral de Downpatrick, donde se cree reposan los restos de San Patricio. 







Apart from the Cathedral there is a lovely gift shop and cafe and the food is quite nice. 

Then we went on to Mount Stewart House & Gardens. 

The house is of neo-classical style and is currently undergoing a major restoration project.

Aparte de la catedral hay una agradable tienda de regalos y un cafe donde se come bien. 

Después visitamos la Casa y los Jardines de Mount Stewart. 

La casa de estilo neo-clasico esta en proceso de una gran restauracion. 



The gardens are so romantic and the sun was shinning for us so it looked even more beautiful. 

Los jardines son tan románticos . . . y el sol brillaba para nosotros así que estaban incluso mas bonitos


















Giants Causeway, simply amazing. . . .

La Calzada del Gigante es simplemente increible . . .

We also went to Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge,
these are the cliffs seen on the way to Carrick-a-rede rope bridge

Tambien fuimos al puente de cuerda de Carrick-a-rede, 

y estos son los acantilados que se ven en el camino. . . 





I did not have the nerve to cross it. . . I did not feel brave enough, 
I'm more and more afraid of heights as I get older . . .

Yo no me sentí valiente para cruzarlo. . . según me hago mas mayor mas miedo
me dan las alturas. 


Then we returned to Dublin and visited Trinity College. . . 

Después volvimos a Dublin y visitamos Trinity College . . .




And the most amazing library I have ever seen. . .

Y su increíble biblioteca, una de las mas espectaculares que he visto. . . 







Hope you have enjoyed seeing the pictures, 

Espero que os hayan gustado las fotos, 

I will be back soon to show you the Loopy Loo Poncho I am making for my daughter and also
to show you this finished, by the way, they will be curtain ties. . . :-))

  4. The poncho is gorgeous. I will go check out the pattern. And those will be beautiful curtain tie-backs. What a great idea! Pictures from your trip are beautiful. I am pretty afraid of heights and would not have up to crossing either.

  5. El poncho calado está bello y perfecto para los meses de calor. Y con ese color neutral, te irá con todo. Las fotos de tu viaje me dieron ganas de saltar el océano para visitar, y esa biblioteca me enamoró también. Que tangas un lindo fin de semana :-)
