we singed on valentines day =)

We just singed the contract for our new flat yesterday :)
I still can't really believe it. As it seems so far away.  It is only one month though...
the owners are really nice and everything seems so perfect... ca 80 m², 3 rooms, wooden floors, 2 bathrooms (one with a shower and a toilette and the other one with a bathtub and a toilette), a nice kitchen.....and ONLY 4800 shekel (960 euro that is cheap for an apartment like that in israel!)
i am still waiting for the catch.
these photos are from the add on yad2 (an israeli website for searching flats, cars, furniture and basically everything else).

my first pattern for sale on ravlery =)

i finally managed to upload my forst pattern to ravelry!
here some basic informations about the pattern:
eli is about 25cm from head to toe.

Materials:
Yarn: 100g/168m (184 yds)
or any other kind of worsted yarn (100g/ 200-150 m)
Needles: 3-4mm (US size 3-6/ UK 11-8) (or whatever fits your yarn)
Face: use buttons/safety eyes/or embroider with yarn of your choice.
Cloth: use any scraps of cloth

the pattern is easy but you should have some idea about how to read patterns with simple expressions like k, p, k2tog and so on.

my price for eli is 2 euros
feel free to visit the pattern on ravlery or to buy it here (you dont have to be a ravelry member to buy it, but if you like knitting and you are not a member yet you are missing out on A LOT! ;))
