Takes Ages...

MARTHA from 'Rowan Studio Issue 2'

I fell in love with this design, without knowing it was such a time-consuming project.

It took me AGES to finish only the back piece. I'm green-eyed with jealousy to see some people have finished it successfully and easily, I just hope I have enough courage to finish the front pieces, let alone the botton/neck band knitted with even smaller needles!

Growing Bamboo

It's Sirdar Just Bamboo. All the way from far east, bamboo is so in this year.

According to Filati, bamboo yarn offers many advantages, such as 'naturally breathing', 'resistant to UV', '100% biologically decomposable', 'neither wrinkle nor peel off'.

It is HEAVENLY SOFT, if only you could touch it from this picture; and it grows quickly!

Klaralund for Me

I've been fancying a 'Japanese' style top for a long time, and finally knitted one myself, only too late for spring. (Still unblocked.)

As I'm always a 'tight' knitter, and NEVER CHECK GAUGE (!!!), I chose a bigger size. It IS a bit big for me, but I kinda like it that way.

Pattern: Klaralund from "Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton Hand Knitting Collection 2"
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden 211

Knitted Years Ago...

Love the tiny bootees!

I know it's a bit tight, but I'm still carrying some holiday weight!

They say this is how ladies walk, but I just can't see where I'm going!
