New needles~!

We went for a nice lunch today cos it's a day worth celebrating. (i.e. Lucky recipient of the sweater turns 26)

While looking for a washroom, I thought I'd drop by the yarn shop nearby to see if there's anything new there waiting to be discovered. And lo and behold, ADDI NEEDLES. WHOOOO

I bought a pair to replace the Aero ones i was using for the sweater. The Aero needles were ok but were getting harder and harder to knit as I went along. I wonder why but well... these were a good deal! I think my favorite needles will be Addi and Clover from now on~~ yayy

Momo is done!

Momo is complete!!

Here's a picture!!! :)

My Momo has no mouth because i think she looks cuter this way. She's stitched with 2.5 small balls of 8ply Spotlight Craft Yarn using a 3.0 mm hook.

Millie likes Momo very much too and she's checking Momo out here.

Thanks Tamara at Roxycraft for creating this really fun and enjoyable pattern!

On another note, here's the Scarf that will keep me warm during my trip in two weeks~! It's a keyhole scarf made on 4.5mm Clover needles with Cleckheaton's Chickadee yarn. The Fluffy ends are made of Panda Lashes......

the clover needle threader is spoilt!

:( all thanks to my scarf :(

i shouldn't have been so bent on threading it through the needle~~ i guess i'm a little too harsh. Sigh~

On another note, I've made one of momo's legs. More to come soon!

'Oliver' is stitched!

Well most of 'oliver' is done... i finally stitched him up today. he's still not named really, and is faceless and still has no jacket on. he's head is not stuffed really well enough, and his legs were a different length. he's about 5" tall.

but i love him all the same cos he's my first bear! :D

i shall now have to look for his eyes and start on his little jacket. The book's oliver has a navy blue one, and i've got purple yarn... so... should i make a blue one or a purple one?

Pics will come soon!

Casting on...

So after pondering for eons as to whether I should have a separate habitat from the main blog... i guess I decided to start off anyways and see how things go.

Thankfully I remember the sign-in for this place.

To start of perhaps I'd just give a little run-down on the wips:
- Momo's legs : momo is my amigurumi octopus. the pattern's from
Roxycraft. she makes great patterns and are really easy to follow! the problem is this is my first amigurumi project (second crochet project) and I'm having trouble with the markers in the way...

- Oliver the bear : i have the limbs left which could be done in the week

- my scarf! : looking forward to the end, should be in the next couple of days!

- THE sweater : this notorious sweater... I haven't completed it and i'm taking a long time. and please don't yell. cos someone is already patiently waiting for it...

I am just done with one scarf this morning... the recipient is now highlighting that he's 'patiently waiting for the sweater'
well here's a shot of the completed scarf ...

This scarf (and mine) will be travelling to France at the end of the year so I hope they serve us well. hehe

more to come soon...
