Finally. A knittin FO.


This pattern is really easy and the final product is absolutely beautiful!


I like how the stitches sort of intertwine with a bit of mohair in-between the gaps. The project also lightly drapes and the yarn is so very soft (and white) that I had to call my project Bunny.


Bunny is made with Sublime's Kid Mohair blend with Clover 5.1mm needles. More pictures here.

Elven Blue

I had a simple idea about leaves and flowers for a few days, but I haven't been able to get the leaf beads I saw previously. This started off as a simple ring.

Elven Blue

Then since Princesse ended up a earrings and ring set, I thought: why not? So earrings followed.

There's been some beading going on around here; probably since I told Susan I'd bead 'on monday'. Well I didn't bead on monday but I did do something. SO in order not to overwhelm anyone, I'll just post one by one. (It also helps me post a little more regularly hehe)


I created Princesse when I saw a 'charm ring' in one of my magazines. It was placed on a miniature cat statue and believe me, I was looking at the figurine first. Since I don't have a little cat figurine to pose for me I shall take a picture of my not-very-nice finger.


The pearl beads are more purple than black, and it probably shows better in this picture.


It's the first time I'm using the swarovski rondelles and I guess I just like them a little too much to stop at one ring. Earrings soon followed.


And here's the set.


More to come!

New stuff!

No pictures of wips or fos. Not even of beading or tatting.

But I met mlc today for lunch. She brought little Isabel out and the baby was sleeping so very quietly, we weren't interrupted at all! It's good to see them both though, even if it's for a short while. :)

The reason why I met her today (instead of after 23rd Mar which I'm telling everyone) is because mlc sms-ed me yesterday telling me that she wanted to meet cinnabar, and that she's ready to come out to town with baby in tow. So yes, after my language classes would be a good time!

AND of course, my needles came with her!

Harmony Options! :D

Ahhh so much excitement!

I'm fighting the urge to start something new. Oh come on, I'm just trying out new needles right?

And btw I do like the new range of colors in Palette. Here's Golden Heather and Calypso Heather (Love the name!) respectively.

Knit Picks Palette in Golden Heather

Knit Picks Palette in Calypso Heather

I think this started after I received one of the purpl-y heathers from rain during SP11. :)

As usual, mang isn't amused.

Kessa tagged me! :) So here goes another meme~~~ heh

These are the rules:

1. Link to the person that tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.
5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.

And here are the six non-important things/habits/quirks about myself. (I'll be sure not to repeat anything from the other two memes I did.)

1. I have a lot of lip gloss/balm. One (or more) in every bag, on every reachable surface at home, and a number in my drawer.

2. Although Chinese (or Mandarin rather) is my mother tongue and the language I first used, I started to find it increasingly difficult to converse in the language. It was so bad I almost replaced my second language (Chinese) with my third (French). I learnt German and a bit of Russian after that.

3. I like to pinch a little corner of clothing (or just any random cloth surface like a pillow case or a hem) and rub them together. I've been doing it subconciously for years until my mum told me about it when I was in primary school.

4. I've been a gamer since I was 5. Thanks to my parents who allowed my brother and I to game everyday for two hours (and longer if it's after exams) and exposed me to almost every kind of console available! :)

5. I have a lot of X-men (and X-men spin-offs) comics. But I stopped buying when Rogue started to get together with Magneto. Combined with my Manga, this collection is modest for hard-core collectors, but 'ALOT' according to my friends. (since they currently line my wall)

6. I also have a lot of books. I think the only stuff I don't really read is chick-lit. And er... cookbooks. I guess this is also why it's dangerous for me to walk into a bookstore as much as it is for me to walk into a game or yarn store.

Ok I tag (in no particular order) genevieve, susan, emily, rain, mlc and yvette!
