Little Button Loafers Again

This is my go to pattern for baby gifts as it’s quick and easy to make, looks impressive and always well received. This time round, I made it for an ex-colleague’s baby boy. I was a bit rusty at first as I haven’t crocheted in a while but the well-written pattern made it easy to […]

2009 Review

I doubt I can finish another project by the last day of the year, which is tomorrow, so I’m going to do my review now. At the beginning of the year, I told myself I’ll try to complete at least one project a month, and I did i.e. I finished more than 12 projects. I […]

More Little Button Loafers

My mum loved my previous little button loafers so much she kept bugging me to make a pair for her friend who just had a baby couple weeks ago. I only had two buttons left so I made the one button strap version. Pattern: Little Button Loafers (pattern is available for purchase from Sylver Designs) […]

Little Button Loafers

Presenting my first FO of 2009! A cute crocheted FO! My friend is due very, very soon and I wanted to make something for her baby boy. Initially, I wanted to make the Pea Pod Baby Set but I was afraid the lace may be a bit too girly. Then I decided on a set […]

Turquoise Cardigan

I had already finished the body and had started on the sleeves when I realised I had totally messed up the bottom of the body. I think I missed a row and switched the RS and WS so the border looked kind of funky. Gonna rip back and may add another inch or two at […]

The End is Near

Just need to tack the cuffs down and I’m done! Everyone enjoying the holiday season? The cool weather has made me want to knit more cardigans and so I’ve started on the Short-Sleeved Cardigan with Ribbing from Fitted Knits. Mine’s going to have long sleeves instead. My Projects on Ravelry Gathered Cardi Short-Sleeved Cardigan with […]

Cookie Cardigan Redux

I frogged my Cookie Cardigan (Liesl) and used the yarn for another cardigan pattern instead. The funny thing was I initially bought a bamboo/cotton blend for this pattern but the yarn turned out to be too drapey. I decided to switch yarn and will be using the bamboo/cotton blend for Liesl instead. The drapeyness will […]

Central Park Hoodie

Being relatively new to knitting (only picked it up last year) meant that I’m only slowly coming round to knit patterns that were wildly popular months or even years ago. One of such patterns is the Central Park Hoodie which was published in 2006. I love hoodies and wear them all the time. Well, only […]
