Un po’ di storia knittosa delle ragazze che fanno parte dell’associazione!!! Cristina un anno fa non sapeva cos’ era un ferro circolare e il metodo continental, non sapeva tradurre un modello dall’inglese e non sapeva cos’ era Raverly! Si e’ approcciata ai corsi di @danilaknitrip / @knitrunway e in poco tempo e’ riuscita ad eseguire un sacco di progetti. Cristina sta eseguendo ora questo bellissimo progetto di Caitilin Hunter, il Sipila, in Inglese. E’ un maglione senza cuciture tecnica stranded! Siamo molto orgogliose del suo lavoro!!!! #corsidimaglia#knittingaddict#knit#lavoroamaglia#stranded#caitlinhunter

Mexican authorities allowed dozens of women and children from a US-bound Honduran migrant caravan to enter the country Saturday but thousands remain stranded on a border bridge between Guatemala and Mexico where riot police barred their progress.
Mexico's ambassador to Guatemala Luis Manuel Lopez told AFP the women and children would be processed by immigration authorities and taken to a shelter in the city of Tapachula, 40 kilometers (25 miles) away.
Hundreds of others -- tired of waiting on the bridge -- resorted to crossing the Suchiate River below on makeshift rafts and police did not intervene as they clambered up the muddy riverbank on the Mexican side.
Many of them had spent more than 24 hours on the packed bridge where heat and hunger was adding to a growing sense of despair. - 'Politically motivated' -
US President Donald Trump, speaking at a rally in Elko, Nevada, kept up his rhetoric against the migrants and suggested the caravan was politically motivated. "The Democrats want caravans, they like the caravans. A lot of people say 'I wonder who started that caravan?'" he said.
He thanked Mexico for blocking the caravan's progress. "Mexico has been so incredible. Thank you Mexico and the leaders of Mexico, thank you. And you know why, because now Mexico respects the leadership of the United States." Last week, Trump threatened to cut aid to the region, deploy the military and close the US-Mexican border if authorities did not stop them.
Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez and his Guatemalan counterpart Jimmy Morales continued Trump's theme after they met in Guatemala to discuss the crisis Saturday. "This migration has political motivations," said Morales, "which is violating the borders and the good faith of the states and of course putting at risk the most important thing, people." Hernandez also deplored "the abuse of people's needs" for "political reasons."
Do you remember the fair isle project I was working on back in August? It's an abstract cushion cover by @mariewallinknits . I didn't knit the last section so it's not a square but rectangle. I washed it in washing machine, short cycle, 30 degrees. Now it's slightly felted and even. I'll make a bag one day. Would it be a project bag or handbag? What do you think?
