秋休みの一日

e0049409_17135349.jpge0049409_17162767.jpgI'm having a little holiday at the moment, because of the school festival that apparently gives me 10 days off from school. So nice. Last two days, I've been knitting, reading and baking. It was a repetition of me going from living room to kitchen, putting madaleines in oven, knitting, cheking the oven again, knitting, cooling them out and knitting...and so on. Then I finally finished my Extri Double-pieces stole! :)

学校帰りのニットカフェ

e0049409_1915460.jpgKnit Cafe on Wednesday night!!! :) I met up with my knitting friend at Ichigaya station and went straight to restaurant Buono! We've ordered our meal first so that we can concentrate on knitting afterwards..but that was kinda embarassing when people started to arrive, we were JUST eating..>< I should have taken some e0049409_1923354.jpgpictures but I didn't, (see how we were concentrating on eating..) I did however, took a picture of my work of the night. It's Ribbing Cape which I plan to put fringe at the bottom later on!

第二弾!

e0049409_17432556.jpge0049409_17445657.jpge0049409_17435270.jpgHere is another old knitting magazine thatmy mom had in her early age. (published by ONDORI )

It's just incredible how language is used, how knitting patterns are described back in the 1960's.e0049409_1744970.jpge0049409_17484741.jpg

This magazine is designed to introduce knitting patterns that can be made by only using 'knit' and 'purl' techniques. It's very basic but at the same time the patterns are so imaginative! Pretty impressive!

父曰く、「魚網」‥

e0049409_18122415.jpgThis is called 'chained petal' technique used by the magic one needle. It's been said that without being able to do this technique you can't really say that you can knit with the magic one needle.e0049409_17271326.jpge0049409_1038598.jpg

Beside the fact that this is my first try, yarns had to be thin like on the picture.
This is the thinest yarns I've ever used, so knitting process is going really really slow. But I feel that I'm learning the technique substantially, it's been a good practice!

昭和51年の編み物雑誌

e0049409_2013394.jpge0049409_20133116.jpgVery intersting knitting magazine that I'd like to show you here, a magazine published back in 1976!!!!
(by 主婦の友手芸シリーズ

e0049409_2013445.jpge0049409_201356100.jpgYup, 30 years ago, I wasn't even exist in this world, ha! Inside,
people look different, e0049409_20141112.jpg
and I expected the designs to look different and old-fashioned too..but, some of them are actually nice, and there are many of that we still have today.
It was fun looking through it, comparing fashion trend back in 1970s.

予想外のリーディングの量

e0049409_1910936.jpgOnly twice a week I have classes so that means I can somehow knit the rest of five days. Really nice! ...that was what I thought a week ago. But then, noooo. My professors would not let me do that, with tons of readings. Especially, this class e0049409_1910471.jpgthat I'm taking now called 'Empirical Political Analysis'..>< It's so demanding and I have to read and prepare for classes and review afterwards. However, I knit! ;) It's not going fast as I used to, but at least it's coming slowly. Here is a proof pic of shiny merange that I started last week. Long way to go!

More studying, less knitting

e0049409_21201149.jpgSchool is starting this week. I'll be senior and I'll have to take tougher courses to meet my graduation requirements. If I don't fail anything I should be able to graduate next summer..hopefully! So, there will be less knitting, meaning less blogging as well. I will leave you with picture though, of what I was knitting today. I'm trying to finish it before school starts but it doesnt look that way..This is my favorite yarn, Soffstar Melange. I first saw it HERE, and it looked so nice that I had to try myself!

e0049409_1952075.jpgMy first product using 魔法の一本針 the magic single needle..I've always wanted try it, knowing it does not require any joining/shaping togethere0049409_2141496.jpg process. I've done a little beadwork at the center of this mini bag. It's quite amazing this single needle can knit almost everything. I'm definately knitting a sweater with this!
