Minimalist update

I started Minimalist after finishing half of Clementine, which I found its making me doze off. I thought that the seed stitch would have a similar effect, however the lovely texture make it all worthwhile. I had finish all the pieces and they are waiting to attend the seaming party. But then again, weekends were not saved to the ROM preps. I guessed Minimalist will have to wait a little longer for the party.

M-R-S in about two weeks

Oh gosh, time really flies by fast. With most of the things out of the way, I'm still having a little crisis. I haven't found the right shoes(I've cut down my expectation from "perfect"). The hand bouquet which my makeup artist offered wasn't what I was looking for, and I aint got a BIG buidget for the commercial ones. And I have not start making my own accessories, though I bought the crystals and materials last week.

Now I wonder if SO has been doing his bit.

A glimpse of my WIP Sarcelle. Amidst the preparation, I managed to squeeze time for knitting. Currently its on the decreasing section, so I guess it should be ready before the ROM. If so, Sarcelle will come in good use.

Socktober Yarns

Its the month for socks, why not time (excuse) to get some sock yarns? No sock FOs so I shall make it up for sockyarns. Well, Adrianne and I had been eyeing on Wollmeise for quite a while. Not until an online store was set up recently. Even so, the yarns were sold out faster than I can blink. So I tried blinking faster and here are 2 skeins I scored!!! YAY *does the happy dance*

No prize for guessing which skein belongs to either me or Adrianne. :p

PS. I will bring them to show on this Saturday's Knit Out.

Demi - no more cables

The yarn for Demi had been sitting inside the stash for quite awhile. It came in handy when I wanted to just knit from stash. First of all, I quite like the ribbings and how it turned out. Also the chart was easy to memorise, although it does look rather complicated at first. The texture which Rowanspun produced is just lovely in my opinion. Fitting wise, I did the smallest size and followed the instructions closely. Now I just need to find some matching buttons. Nonetheless, I consider Demi a FO.

1. Demi, 2. Front close up, 3. Center panel of the chart, 4. Side Seam
Pattern: Demi, from Vintage Knits, Rowan
Yarn: Rowanspun Aran in Heath colorway, 4 plus a tiny fraction of the 5th skein.
Needle: Addi Turbo 5mm, Inox 4.5mm
Size: 30/32
Time to finish: over 4 weeks
