Photos for the first time

WARNING: GRAPHIC INTENSIVE for the next few entries.

When you have a giant ball of yarn, what do you do with it?

I will:
1. Knit
2. knit
3. KNIT KNIT KNIT x 1000000000 stitches


a closer look at the cabled sleeves

Pattern: You are right, this is Mariah from
Yarn: Patons Caressa
Things which i've learn: Mariah is my first sweater and a raglan one, it was quite challenging while i was on sleeve #1, thereafter, sleeve #2 was a breeze. cabling without a cable needle is the trick!~~
etc... : this is a hood-less Mariah, cuz i think the hood won't be much of use to me. the hood will be like a lump of material on my back. if your eyes are sharp enough, you could have notice the zipper is not attach at all. =p just too lazy to get it done.

i'll be posting more on my other FOs and WIPs in the next few posts, else this blog will be oh-so-boring.

Where's those Discounted Yarns??!?

I had a good time knitting away during the monthly knit-meet. The photos are taken by Emy. I'm the one in turqouise blue tee shirt.

well, i remembered Cara mentioning my nearest LYS has discounted yarns. unfortunately, it was not in sight when i was there an hour ago. i was hoping to find cotton yarn for my FBS and Lucky Clover shawl. The LYS owner was not around and the store assistant was not able to help. duh.... :(

I'm Hosting a KAL!!!

It seems to be a year of Shrugs as oppose to 2004's ponchos. So let's Shrug-along.

Here's the button. (Thanks to Inex for the button.)

Kindly save the button onto your server.

Now all i need to do is to find that PERFECT shrug pattern.

more tweaks to go

yep. this blog need more tweaks. will be adding some KALs which i'll be joining.

Knitty is up with spring-y new patterns. i'm quite into I Do, however i need to be quite practical in my pattern selections so that i won't end up with pieces which i don't wear and end up in the closet. thus wasting my time and efforts.

let me roll back to last week when i was at the Spotlight 15% sale. the queue was a killer. people with a few baskets full of items were queue-ing in front of me. *sweats*

and guess who i saw at the sale? Emilyn, the local meetup organiser. i was actually expecting to spot more fellow knitters. the next meetup would be this coming saturday 16th april. *makes a mental note*

crossing my fingers that the 4 copies of SnBN will reach me by friday so i can pass it to the knitters in satuday.

will be back with more photos.
