Pattern: Chevron Scarf
Finished size: 8" x 65" , Needles : 4.5mm
Yarn: 3x50g Cleckheaton 12 ply Country,1/2 x100g Marvel 8ply Arcylic
I've searched everywhere for the scarf patttern I wanted for a very long time, and finally I've decided on Chevron, although both yarns dint come in the same thickness but well, it still turned out nicely...
There are finally done and ready for a wash to go with us to Hokkaido for our honeymoon...

Many of you have been asking about the cupcakes since I mentioned about CupCake KAL last month. We dint post it out yet because we wanna make sure all members received thier Cupcakes first before posting them.
The final decor before sending them out...

I started this winter hat 2 weeks ago but was put on hold due to the Cupcake KAL. Now, the Cupcake KAL is done and I picked up this winter hat from the basket again last weekend.
All these pictures were modeled by my handsome HB :D
Pattern: Cashmere Ribbed Hat
Materials: Cleckheaton Country 12 ply 100% Pure Wool , Sirdar Denim Tweed DK
Amount: 3.25 balls x 50g/71m ,10g
I followed the pattern to CO 96 sts, continue until piece measures 11" from begining then I started decreasing. It does turn out slightly longer but I guess it is good to cover the ears for winter. Sirdar Denim Tweed DK was used to create the blue line.

Yesterday was my BD, DD brought me for a romantic dinner at Ma Maison, they served really good western japanese food.
My buddy, Jollin bought me the Knitting Lingerie Style that I am longing for, 2 hanks of Knit Picks Gossamer yarns and she knitted a hairband for me..see the Rockin Gal wearing it? hehe...
My god-sis, Annie, bought me 6 balls of Noro Lily Silk Garden in grey and blue tone!!! I was jumping on my bed when I saw these...everyone was talking abt it and I always pretended that I am not interested in order to stop myself from buying because this yarn is not cheap...This is really a very pleasant surprise to me and now I have 6 balls of them..I love them so much that i just cant stop touching them! Thanks dear.
These 6 balls of Jaegar Celeste Tape Yarns is from Sally,The yarns in light green are so sweet..I love them too.

30 July, 2007
Yesterday we had Portluck family dinner at our place, around 30+ people, overall it was fun, except when we show some of them our wedding photos shoot by Ric, the PC is in our room, while watching the slide, this happen:
Aunty A : She(refer to me) look better with long wedding gown, look slimmer.
Aunty B : She is ok, not that fat.
Aunty A : She is fat lah!
Aunty B : No la, she is ok, not fat lah!
Aunty A : She is lah, u see...(and she point her finger at me...)!!!
and this conversation happened when so many pple watching the slide, and Aunty A say this infront of me... It was pretty hurt, I know I am not that slim, but, CANT YOU DONT SAY THAT INFRONT OF ME???!!!
I dont know how to react, I only act blur and stay silent...
and the best is, this Aunty A is the one ask me to knit a bolero for her!!!

Scaft still the fastest FO.

I have been good, staying cool and trying hard to focus picking up 500+ sts for the Jo Shape Bolero ribbing, it is really not easy..I am dead slow with ribbing, especially k2p2 on 500+ sts per row...zzz..
I am back with crochet, drooling on at crochet bolero that I dint know I have the patt in my collection! Stay tune and I will update soon.
Meanwhile, I shall try to control not to Casting On new project, as wedding is coming real soon, I need to start prepare for some accessories, corsage for the sister gang and, of cos, the silk yarn from Colourmart for the Hanami stole for my wedding~

Yesterday after work, I rushed down to China Town, waiting at the MRT control station expecting to meet Rain and Mira.
I brought these 2 little sweet girls to our LYS Golden Dragon but we came out empty-handed, then we proceeded to Sportlight and Jollin joined us there for dinner at Mos Burger too...
It has been awhile since I stepped into Sportlight and I realised that they have new ranges of yarns and I came home with these 9 balls of Panda wool+acrylic yarns,$2 for 50g/125m, what more to ask for?
Over the 3 hours, we enjoyed our time together and laughted about the Barbarian way of eating the chicken ha ha...thank you for the lovely evening :)

I cast on this Rusted Root last Dec (did i just say Last Dec?? yes hehe) and finally I got it done.
This is the longest time I took to knit a top, when I was so excited to cast on, I could not decide on the colours and the type of yarns to use. I tried 5 ply China cotton in dirty yellow and Miami Cotton in olive green, and I just couldn't get the tension/gauge right!

So fast the weekend has passed.
I was working full day yesterday, nothing much I can plan for the weekend, but still manage to get something done.
Friday after work, firstly was the wallet, this Gucci wallet was a gift from DD for valentine day, and I notice the the border faded in June, after 4 mths??? so I decided to bring it back to the boutique. In the end they agreed to repaint the border for me, well, at least they do something abt it, if not, dont think I will buy any product from there anymore.
Then we were running around to get DD's photo-shoot shirt, at first we went to Raoul at Suntec, no more DD's size, Paragon outlet no stock too, luckily we found one pce at Caltex house outlet, the staff was very helpful, they actually waited for us to collect the shirt although they were already closed.
My Friday ended with a nice dinner at Crystal Jade at Takashimaya and bean curd on the way home...
Saturday and Sunday nothing much...Knitting, movie and tv at home...
Oh the lovely H&M eyes shadow make-up kit all the way from Oslo definitely brighten up my weekend.
