The idea of knitting a small gift for someone special for her birthday has been going thru my mind since 2 months ago... something small..hm..a hat?
After surfing on ravelry for all the hat's design, i finally took up the courage to CO this beret! In fact, it was not a one-time success FO, the patt stated that is for Child/ Adult Small, so i CO 90 sts instead of 84. The hat ended up covering my whole face!Guess what have i done to rescue the hat? i cut off the ribbing and redo it up-side-down!
Overall, not a bad one, now i am thinking to CO another one for myself :D

Sun burn on my hand :(We paid a second visit to the Korean restaurant in Katong for lunch! the food is much better then the first time we tried, worth the price for the food :D, after the lunch we tried this Cheesecake Cafe in the East, from the outside really dont attract our attention at all but once the waitress lead us into the cafe..WOW!!! let the picture tell thousand words.
The two tired faces after being under the hot sun enjoying coffee in the cafe...
Looking out from the inside...

It has been awhile since the last update on my blog about my knitting progress, reason : being too greedy to have too many wips on hands!
This Twinkle Capelet is one of my wips that i casted on dated 22/05/08 and i've put it on hold for almost 2 weeks because i am running out of yarns.
Overall i am happy with this project because i feel it is more stylo than those normal cardi that we usually see.

Although not a fan of pink colour since young, but guess this sweet candy pink from Katia Bamboo does bring out the charm of this hat! Loving it :D

Cast on this scarf last month by using one of my stash, the Knit Pick Shine Sport yarns i got 2 years ago.
Quite an easy knit. I’ve shorten the length by 2 repeats and do increase every 3 rows instead of every 5 rows, the measurement at the center point is 13.5” before blocking.
Done - wash and lightly blocked by ironing.

Yarns: 1.5 x 50g(450 yards)Habu Tsumugi 100% Silk
Needle size : 3.5mm
This lovely Habu Tsumugi Silk yarns in pale green was given to me from a dear friend as a Christmas gift last year.
It was not smooth on my needles(prehaps because of my sweaty palms) but it turned out to be very very soft after a wash.
I dint really stretch it, only lightly block it and the size turn out just nice for me.
