Yeah! Here's my first Finished Object (FO) for the year of 2008 - Redgina (an orangina in red color).
It took me quite a while to complete this lace top due to the size needle size I am using (2.5mm). The yarns used is Jaeger Siena. I got this yarns from my buddy during a craftster swap. :)

Beside FO, I also have new knitting tools and yarns added to my knitting collection. One of which is new wooden knitting needles - gifts from annie. Thanks you. It would definitely be of great use the next time i went on vacation.I only bought some new yarns. yes yes again.... :p
Hb & I decided to head for a Japan trip this year Jan for about 10 days - 7 days in Hokkaido, 3 days in tokyo. Not really a planned trip nor scheduled trip. So I now need to save money to recover the hole created. However, this trip is definitely one of the trips that hb n I enjoy a lot especially the snowy weather @ hokkaido. :) Would go back one of these days again.
A total of 738 pictures were taken. After looking at the pictures repeatedly, I decided to break them in some little parts and post them here. :) Don't really think I would resize them all and upload all - it would be a bit too much. :p
p/s: The pictures selected are random shots that I like.
