Kiri is a FO

This was an easy knit but it did get tedious with 200+ purl stitches when i was up to the 9th repeat. *fakes fainting*

Eilene, here's pics of my kiri after blocking.
I know I did not do a good job in blocking again. on the other hand, my cast off was rather tight, even though i used a much bigger needle.

A close up of the motifs. Lovely isn't it?

Pattern: Kiri Shawl from
Yarn: Alpaca Cloud in Iris from Knitpicks, 1 hank
Needle: Birch 4mm and 5.5mm circular needles

I'm Interchangeable

You are interchangeable.
Fun, free, and into everything, you've got every
eventuality covered and every opportunity just
has to be taken. Every fiber is wonderful, and
every day is a new beginning. You are good at
so many things, it's amazing, but you can
easily lose your place and forget to show up.
They have row counters for people like you!

What kind of knitting needles are you?

Being Loved

My Flower Basket Shawl Tutorial is being loved by ChicKnits.

This cast on is also great for the Kiri Shawl or any neck down triangular shawls.

Gonna finish my Kiri today. pics of blocking to follow. :)

From hanks to balls to UFOs

a peek at my knitting basket.

I really hate seaming sleeves, worst still when it comes to lace patterns. The picture is proof.
Spring Fling

I need a quick fix of stockingnette stitches, so here's the back piece of Ginger from Rowan Summer Tweed Collection.

Last up is Kiri in Iris, from Knitpicks Alpaca Cloud. I'm on the 7th repeat.

My First Sock Update

Never have sock knitting crossed my mind, even after seeing other knitting socks away. I have always been skeptical that, who would want to wear wool on their feet in the midst of 34 degrees C??

Armed with sock yarns from my wonderful SP-oiler, i started google-ing for basic sock patterns. and i decided to start with here. however, I'm currently stuck with the short rowing of the heel.

Here's a few pics of my progress.

This is achieved after frogging several times. *sigh x 69346596349*

Slightly more than 24 hours later.

I shall summarise a little of my meetup with the KL knitters 2 weekends ago. (Oh my gosh, i didn't realise that time passes so fast even when one's not holding a job.)

The first thing which impressed me was the traffic in KL. I have never experience jams at 10pm+ in SG. The coach driver decided to stop like 2 blocks away from the terminal and had all passengers to alight. thank goodness i had been to KL before and Vanessa was there to pick me up. a BIG Thank You to Van for letting me bunk in with her during my stay in KL. <<< HUGS >>>

The next day, I met up with the majority of the gang. I have no photos to show, cuz the waiter wasn't well versed in photography. anyways, pics can be found here and here.

Not much shopping done, but i still scored 2 tees (Thanks to Van again!) and 3 pairs of sandals.

Stay sock-tune

I've caught the bug for sock knitting. do hang around for updates on what this bug has done to me.
