1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Garden Path Shawl on: April 27, 2010 08:11:16 PM
This shawl is beautiful. I would like to try to make myself one. I knit and crochet a little but have no idea where to purchase the yarn you used or how much you need. Could you fill me in?

I bought it in Sarahsyarns.com in cone

Oh, it's lovely.  What a gorgeous shawl!  How long did this take you?

About 1.5 months

Further evidence I need to learn knitting. Lovely!

This is crocheting not knitting

Im in love.. as someone brand new to crocheting.. it also looks very daunting.. that would take me months.. and thats even if i could decipher the pattern!! beautiful work!

The pattern is in diagram, so it's pretty easy

2  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
3  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.

4  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.

5  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.

6  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.

It's very easy, actually.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Empire Top (Update: As Maternity Top) on: March 10, 2008 09:57:53 AM
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

You are a very talented lady. I admire your skirt and the shirt and then when I know that you also made the rug, I have to look back to the photo and I also love your rug.
