Last Seen

*sighz* These UFOs are going to be frrrrrrrrrrogged..... i think... or maybe I should think of ways to rescue them...

(1) Purple Bolero
I had completed knitting with this sometimes back. However, when I wanted to start hiding the seams i realised that it is too big for me. The measurement across is 46". Sighz... really beyond hope...

(2) Bumble Bee
This UFO had been around at least for the past 2 years. It is one of the projects that I co during my knitting lessons. OMG!!! So long. One "hardworking" day, I decided to clear my ufo but I realised a problem -- all the seams are not aligned no matter how i arranged them :( No choice. Well I had found a replacement pattern for these yarns ;)

It's a colorful world :)

Although I hardly put on makeup, I like to buy them especially when I saw the colors that they had. Hence I decide jump on the wagon to buy this 78 palettes when I saw it on the spree :)

Time to brush up my makeup skills.

FO: Poseidon Socks

My second pair of sock. It is one of the KAL with Regg & Yun.

I had a hard time with this one. Frogged for more than 4 times for this pair of socks. Luckily I manage to complete it. *grin*

Yarn used:Brown Sheep Wildfoote Luxury Sock

No. of skeins: 1.3
Needles size: 2.25mm

Generally this is an easy pattern except for the heel turn portion. I uses the wendy knit's instruction instead of following the one on the pattern. Beside that, I makes mistakes with the first few rows I miss out the increase. Hence my socks look squarish for the initial portion. But I decide to ignore those since it is not very obvious when i wear them.

FO: Cropped Raglan Sweater

Finally done with another project.This is one of the projects that make it to my love list. ;)

Yarn Used: Cotton Novia ( The yarn stretches quite a fair bit after wash)
No. of balls: 6 balls

Encounter some problems with the arm holes portion during knitting. It seems to be have one big hole on each side. After some attempt, manage to patch the hole. Here is it after patching. :)

Besides Yarns

Besides yarns, these are my latest addictions. :) I love the story line. I wonder how much can one really sacrifice for your loved ones.

Danica scarf

Looking at the entrelac projects on the ravelry, I feel tempted to co an entrelac project. I shortlisted the Danica scarf. I use some variegated wool yarns from china for this project and the color run is amazing. I love it. This is one of those projects that I love. :)

The pattern itself is easier to knit and understand as well.

No. of skeins used :5
Length: 65"
Time taken: one month

It's taller then me

Here are my lacey project after blocking.


This is my second stole after clapotis. I am looking forward to this stole when i first started to CO even when I finish kniting it. I am happy that I had a new stole to use. B........U...........T..........., after blocking the length of the stole stretches to 92". OMG!!!! The stole is even taller den me. Seems like I had to use it as a scarf instead of stole as it is really way too long.


Love the pattern and color. The size did increases after blocking. However, it still looks small on me.

I'm back

Phew... Finally I am back to blogging. Had been real busy with work recently. 15 days of continuous working and training... At least things start to get back to its normal pace now.

Back to knitting news.. I had completed both lace projects in my last post... Here is a pix of them...

Realize that I had 4 projects that are not yet wash and block. Time to get into action soon... Maybe this weekend... Hmmm....Would post up some pictures again after blocking...

My long await gift to myself is finally here..
Nectar I love all the patterns in this.. had been browsing through again and again. Just cannot decide on which one to CO...Maybe I should finish a few of my WIPs first...

I had been in a lacey mood or rather even since i started knitting. If you had noticed, most of my FOs are non-cable except one bag for my bag. It is not that I dislike cable but I just know like the way of knitting cable. :) Maybe someday I would work on cable. Hmmm maybe a bag or scarf. Just see how it goes. Being in lacey mood, I CO another shawl again. Together with my buddy regg. :) This time round it is Kiri. It had been in my to knit list until one or two week back. We decided to CO.

Beside Kiri, Hanami is still in progress. Soon it would be done before this weekend I hope.

Boring me

One boring day, one boring me took out a ball of yarns and two pairs of needles and started knitting a brainless pattern (all knit sts). All I do is to switch between the different needles.

After one week, here is the FO. :)

Beads Craft

Besides yarns, I has a hobby of collecting beads as well. When I purchased them, I had an intention of making them into accessories as gifts or for myself.

Here are some of my "realisation".

Hb had called me to create some hp chains for his colleagues (some = 12). :P

Sunday, April 06, 2008


I finally managed to complete my clapotis just in time for my mum to bring it to my distant relative. I took me a long 9 months to complete it. It is a simple knit would definitely proceed to do another one. The only thing that can be improved on is the length of this stole/scarf. It is a super long one (84 Inches) after I steam iron it. steam iron is really an easy way of blocking. lol

Yarns used: Mecury brand - arylic yarn
No of balls used: 3 (should use 2 and 1/2 instead)
Length: 84"
Width: 18"
