Cream Flower Cardigan

Here I am knitting again... a special request all the way from Putrajaya - Ziera for her to wear during her confinement.. A Cream Flower Cardigan.
I really hope I can get it done before her due date.. err.. sometime end of May?

Imagine.. 99 stitches on the circular needle... luckily this is M size.. If I were to knit my XXL size.. alamak.. sarat la jarum ku .. oohh.... jari jemari ku.. kaku..heheheh
Hmm... I only made around 9inch..
Its a long way to go Zura.. But I really love doing it..
Hey.. How come its called Cream Flower Cardigan? I see only plain color?
Till then.. wait for the result.. SOON.

More chilies please..

My mom made a few giant chillies for her grandchilden.. They sure love it!

See more.

Pink blouse

I made this 1 hour blouse last nite.. I thought of making this blouse for my niece, as I promised to make one dress for her.
But I guess this is too big for her 10year old size..
Its not really completed yet, cos I planned to make some embroidery at the front, instead of plain pink.
Stay tuned for the end result soon..
to be continued!

Stripe Cardigan

Finally my baby's cardie is 98% completed.

No buttons yet.. and a some itsy-bitsy seams to be sewn..

Play around with beautiful ribbons

I received this book yesterday which I've bought from the original author.

Puan Suzana Mustafa - which also the owner of http://www.wanitamelayu.com/

This book is great! Its worth buying for those who are really into embroidery sewing.

Only RM39.00 + $4 pos express charges.

Wow, exclusive from the author, I even got her signature.

Nah.. to excited to try this new thing.. See my first Ribbon Embroidery.

I made it last nite!

Well.. this is good enuf for a start. Its not quite "kemas" yet.. still need to get my hand get used to hold an embroidery needle.. Ouch.. Painful lah! Eventhough I used the crosstich fabric whith lotsa holes, piercing the needle together with big ribbons is so damn painful.. (tak biase kot)

Long time no embroidery.. eversince primary school leh..

I'm going to try more..

Stay tuned my friends.

p/s: A very special thanks to my new virtual web friend Cheq-Sue for her inspiring website. I learn a lot of ideas from there. Get to know her, she's great!

My special Yarn Organiser..

Look at my latest invention of "Yarn Organiser"..

Haven't got the time to "embellish" it yet.. It comes from raw material (Maya's Enfagrow box)

I'm in the process of making a "Stripe Cardigan" for Maya..

Its easy to put my yarns inside this box, since I had to use 3 balls of different color yarn, at least I can keep my yarn safe & clean & of course tidy.

For a start, I'm knitting the cardie by making the "back" side of the cardie. I'm using a bamboo 4.5mm needle, not that that bad.. Although its faster to use an aluminium straight or circular needle, but I managed to complete the back part in just 2 days ( err... not full 24hr-day ya.. I only got 2-3hrs per day to spare after Maya sleeps...)

Tada... done 1st phase, back of the cardie..

To be continued...
