Unglam pics

or are they just funny? Anyway, I just happened to pass by these two places.
So is the postman going to deliver letters later?

I'm absolutely not allergic to coins and shillings. =P

And a sneek on Salina. Sorry for the spotty mirror and also the messy hair. Guess I was having a bad hair day then.And Rusted Root is on the block. I tried it on right after weaving the ends, the fit is almost perfect. More pics soon.

One more shawl

This shawl is already in the hands of the recipent. And I hope she likes it as much as I did knitting it.

Pattern: Diamond Fantasy Shawl by Sivia Harding
Yarn: 2 hanks of Knitpicks Gloss in Wedgewood
Needle: 4mm Addi Turbos
Size: NA
Time to finish: 1 week? or less?
Recipent: Aunt

I was running out of yarn when I was binding off 2/3 of the way. So the bind off had to be tinked. Instead of doing the i-cord bind off, I just did the regular one and was left with less then 2 feet of yarn. That was so close.

This is one of this patterns which I will knit for the second time. And also the first pattern which was repeated within 3 months.

Baudelaire for Socktoberfest: Finito

Just bind off and had the pictures taken before I start procastinating and blaming the weather. My bit for Socktoberfest 2006 is done!

Pattern: Baudelaire by Cookie A
Yarn: 2 hanks of Knitpicks Gloss in Cocoa
Needle: 2.5mm circulars, Addi Turbos
Size: Small
Time to finish: 2 weeks

I had a bit of problem trying to match both socks. Re-knitted the gusset and heel twice for the second sock. I guess its best to knit both socks at the same time. And thats precious lesson learnt. Also, Gloss is really lovely to knit with. This is the second time I've knitted with it. Stay tuned to see what's the first project I used with Gloss.

Thanks for all the lovely comments on Aegean FFL. I am still waiting for the right occasion to wear it. Most probably at the next wedding reception in December. Meanwhile off to cast on for Rusted Roots

Another Shawl Time

When was the last time an FO was documented here? Though there's not much FO updates, my needles have been kept busy. Anyway, here is the long awaited Aegean Flowers & Leaves.

Pattern: Frost Flowers & Leaves from A Gathering of Lace
Yarn: 8 oz of Jaggerspun Zephyr in Aegean Blue
Needle: 2.5mm circulars from Aero and Addi Turbos
Size: NA
Time to finish: 4 months ++

I could have finished it in less than 4 months, it was all due to distractions and the wait for needles to arrived. Never in Singapore can I find a 120cm size 2.5mm needle, somehow I managed to find 1 set online. All thanks to the internet.

The pictures don't do justice to the real thing at all. I took the picture half an hour ago before the sky opens up. There goes the natural light. I have another shawl up for post very soon.

No pics yet

I have some pics in my mobile's camera, however it does take a little effort to upload it. And now I spent less time on my PC, the chances of uploading is scarced. I shall try again soon.

The weather is still as hazy as ever. This is the worst haze we have experienced since 1997. More stories on the haze situation HERE.

On another note, I am playing with the idea of having my own domain and webspace. still thinking of a name. I think my coding skills are already rusty.

Baudelaire for Socktoberfest

I'd better say HI before I dive deeper into my stash. I've been busy with knitting hence the blog was neglected. Loads of yarn arrived during the past week. Unfortunately, time is something which I do not have a lot.

I started Baudelaire for Socktoberfest. And I'm on the Leg portion for sock #1. Not bad for a day's worth of knitting.

You might be wondering that since I have the time to knit the whole day, why wouldn't time be spared for photo taking and blogging? Don't ask me why, my heart very much wanted to but the brain just keep telling my hands to not stop knitting.

Now I need to dive into my bed. Nights all~

Weather report

The air here is in a very undesirable condition. I don't mind the raininess or the heat. Just don't give me haze. I am suffering from a dry throat which worsen to a sore throat. The haze is pretty bad, skies look very gloomy as the sunlight trys to penetrate.
Enough with the downside, I shall talk about happy stuffs.

Note to my SP9 pal: do take a look on the side bar on info about me.

On another brighter note, my boss just handed me the long overdue confirmation letter. This means I will be shouldering more responsibility. More stress means I need more knitting. In turn I will be paring down more yarns.

During the weekend, I blocked DFS #2. Its now nicely folded waiting for its owner. Also Salina is currently lying over my shoulders. I will follow up with a pic of Salina.

On the whole, please support Consumer Friendly Yarns
