1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Garden Path Shawl on: April 27, 2010 03:56:38 PM
I cant tell you how much I love this shawl. Well, actually I can. I LOVE IT SOOO MUCH! There! Not only I loved the result but I also loved the process of making this shawl so much that I am thinking to make another one in different color.

The yarn was very addictive to work with. This is the first time I work with Jagerspun Zephyr although I had this yarn in my stash for quite sometimes. Now, I understand why so many people like this yarn so much.





Edit to Add:
I used about 4000 meter of Jagerspun Zephyr Wool-Silk 2/18 Lace weight (held double) .  So it's almost 1 whole cone. I bought the yarn in sarahsyarns.com.
It took me about 1.5 months to make this.
The finish size is 84 across top edge, 40 long from centre top to point
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / No-Seaming Crocheted Flower on: December 18, 2009 06:50:16 PM
I created this gorgeous crocheted flower that can be made in less than an hour, so it's perfect for gift as well. This flower required no seaming at all. I used my leftover yarn from other project and the button is a button from my old dress. The result is about 4" or 10 cm in diameter. I plan to make this for necklace, belt, and pin as well. The other day, when I wore this as a bracelet, a lot of people complimented it.







3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Lace Sleeves Sweater on: November 26, 2009 06:42:49 PM
It took me forever to finish this sweater because I was very busy taking care my 2 girls. Anyway, its finished now and I am happy with the result. I love the additional lace on the bottom. I wore it many times already. I know you all are waiting for the "in action" photo, so here they are! I specially love the last photo, because you can see on the background that my eldest daughter was also doing the pose. For more info and photos about this project you can go to my blog.










4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Simple Cable Cardigan on: August 01, 2008 06:44:10 PM
This was my first cable experience, therefore I didnt want to overdo it. I just add the cable on the neck, waist and sleeve. I had fun doing it. It was very easy and simple, hence the name.

As you can see, I finished it on March, but at that time I was heavily pregnant and was not able to model this cardigan. That is why I had to wait until now.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Lauri Dress on: June 12, 2008 10:47:37 PM
I made this dress for my daughter Lauri, hence the name.

I made the pocket apple shape, because I felt that just plain square pocket is boring. I am happy with the result as it really made this dress very cute. I also made the sleeves a bit ruffled by increasing in the shoulder. I made this dress a bit bigger so she can wear it longer. Too bad that I only have 5 balls of yarn, because I think I need another ball to make it longer.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Empire Top (Update: As Maternity Top) on: March 10, 2008 09:57:53 AM
Update:
This is the reason why I have to ask my mother in law posed the Empire Top for me. As you can see in the photo, although originally I designed this top when I was not pregnant, however, in the end I am able to wear it. I think its because I knit this top using cotton yarn, and we are all know that cotton can stretch. The good thing about cotton is, once you wash, it shrinks back to the original size.



********************************************************************************

Finally I am able to post this FO. This is Empire Top that I sketched last year. My mother in law modeled it for me. She is 60 plus, but the top still looks OK on her.

Thanks for looking
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Flower Button Bag on: February 27, 2008 07:17:18 AM
This is made from leftover yarns. The pink yarn is sport weight, and the white one is worsted weight, so I split the white yarn into two to make them the same weight.

However, there were still not enough yarns to finish the bag. In the end I just used black acrylic thread (double it). The result, the black seems too strong. To balance the whole thing, I just embroidered some flowers and attached some buttons.

I used black fabric for the lining. Also put a zipper. A Zipper is a must, since I dont want all my things come out if I drop my bag. I want all my things are secured inside.





Thanks for looking!
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Fitted Crocheted Jacket/top? Why Not!! on: October 08, 2007 12:42:06 PM
I love the result of this top. Yes, it took a long time to make (almost 3 months) but the result is worth it. It took a long time because I had to frog so many times. I think I could make almost 3 Dahlia (that is what I name this top) if I didnt have to frog.



I also love the transition between the sleeve and the body. I chose the solid motif for the body but when reach the sleeves it become lacy and transparent. All worked in the same round and no seaming!!!!

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A Thong on: September 28, 2007 08:09:31 PM
Did I ever tell you that I love to crochet using fine thread and small needle? Sometimes I just had the urge to make project using small hook. This is one of the results. I love the result and its pretty comfy too.





Pattern: My Own
Source: N/A
Materials: DMC Tradition size 10. Color: Natural. Qty: ball.
Hook: Tulip Crochet Hook 1.8 mm





I just had the opportunity to take the photo recently. Its kind of difficult to take this photo. For the lighting issue, I took this photo in the garden outside. I constantly looked around because afraid that the neighbors saw me doing it. Hehehehehe. Its kind of difficult to explain why I needed to take photo of a thong. Hahahahahaha!
10  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My First Quilt on: July 24, 2007 10:04:40 AM
Actually this is old project. Finished in 2004, but only now I manage to take a picture of it.

I started this project right after I saw my MIL making patchwork, borrowed her patchwork magazines, bought cotton materials and started my own design.

As usual, I did not start with simple project, but designed a queen-sized blanket! I also hand-quilted the whole thing. I forgot when I started this project, but I finished it 5 days before I delivered my DD. Such a perfect timing.
