Changing Theme

January 31, 2010

I like to change my theme. This time i like split header. I had to use this theme before. Now i am in the mood for this soft toys picture that i took from a toystore. Am not big fans of soft toys or dolls. When i was a kid, am not kind of holding/hugging doll everywhere. I just like the colors of the photo. What do you think??

My Crochet Tools

January 17, 2010

This is my best crochet tools ever. I knew it from my mentor, Mrs. E, that if you use Clover, you won’t get stiff fingers. And yes. It works. I crochet all day and my fingers just stay in the big grip. Look closer, they have beautiful, rounded, smooth hooks. I bought as a set. Consists of 8 various size needles. From size C (2.5mm) to J (6.00mm). Their prices is quite expensive but really worth it. And they came in beautiful tapestry case. Vintage, huh.

I do have bigger needles, size K, (6.5mm) called The Crochet Lite and funny is, it has light on it. So I can crochet while my hubby sleeping and turn off the light. You can see that i put it in my Clover case. That is. Unfortunately it was broken, so i had to put tape around it, so bye-bye the light.

Am not fans of small needles. I bought it from local brand, Tulip. But I rarely use it. Clover has this small size as well, of course with their famous big grip. I haven’t buy it yet ‘cos I don’t need it. I put it in my Clover case too.

And i adore this Clover Reflections Hook Set. Look younger and more fun, and you can take it while you are in flight ‘cos they’re made from plastic. But haven’t find it yet. Aren’t they beautiful??

Scarf

January 14, 2010

I love to make scarves. Easy, quick and worth to be given.

Here’s the scarves that I made recently:

I finished it in one-day, easy n quick. Pattern from “One Skein” book. Yarn from Red Heart.

Yay, the first knitting scarf that i made. Needs about 3 weeks (the pattern said ‘it was super quick’). Realise that knitting is more complicated and more challenged. Yarns from Ravelry.com plus instructions from Cyberseams.com posting at youtube.com. And the yarn is from Red Heart too.

And, i had posting this scarf last year, but i hadn’t give edging on it. I liked it better with the border. But  I already gave it to my friend.

All of them are for gifts. My friend’s. I think that’s personal message for your friend that you care and love them. Something that handmade by you.
