春休みに入りました☆

e0049409_2074458.jpgI'm done with all my final exams and now I have two months of holiday ahead! Yes!! :)
I've been away from knitting (completely) for a week! That's a record actually. From now on I have to catch up with my old projects.. Here is one of them - orange alpaca tweed skirt. It's coming along slowly. It is pretty much a reputation of same pattern so it's not that fun to knit with. But, I'm so looking foward to see the final product!

Lacy stuff always attracts me. I have final exams soon, thus I cannot dare to start big lacy project even if I wanted to. In such situation, doiles are the perfect choice. It doesnt take much time and you don't regret! Here are some free doilie patterns you can start with :) Happy Knitting.

ユザワヤ万歳!

e0049409_094069.jpge0049409_095282.jpgYarns, yarns and more yarns!
e0049409_0102648.jpge0049409_0103825.jpg
Take a look at these beautiful yarns that I got from Yuzawaya sale at Kichijoji yesterday.
I found just exactly what I needed; a lightweighted Tweed yarns for skirt, with exact matching gauge to my pattern!
Plus, it was super cheap so I bought 10 of them which only adds up to 1980 yen all together. Unbeliebable!

Shepherd Yarn
, Waterspun - 198 yen
New Zealand yarn.




Filatura Di Crosa, Mohair Nuovo - 525 yen

Italian yarn.
Fabulous green color, isnt it? :)







Lang Yarn, Mustang - 315 yen


Switz yarn.
Interesting touch with a good variety of colors!




Puppy, Cortona
- 510 yen

Just so cute!
I like the bumpy texture with this kind of yarn.

Other yarns there had all reasonable price, yet quality yarns. Yuzawaya Rules!:)

1玉でも余りがでる!手袋☆

e0049409_23584957.jpge0049409_031926.jpg

Yarn : Naif Angela, 50g 125m 100% Wool
I bought this yarn when I first visited Okadaya Shinjuku. From the first glance I loved its colour and bought just one to try and see how the colour would turn out. As you can see, some fingers turned out to be very unique (strange?) colour work! And they are not identical of course, that will add more hand-knitting touch to it. I like it!

アラン模様、手間かかりすぎ

e0049409_12385117.jpge0049409_2113525.jpg


I'm going through this endless Aran pattern. It seems like I'll never finish, it requires so much time as well as my concentration.







I've only done back side of it, but I already had it enough!>< I should probably start a new project for refreshment..


Yarn: Susanna Karine
Needle: 棒針No.5

デザートのおもてなし

e0049409_15185695.jpge0049409_15192269.jpg
Here is my Apple Crumble that I made for an annual new year home party called 'uki-uki program' ;)

All we did was eating loong lunch followed by looong chatting, then playing loooong games, and again eating (deserts).



Here is super- easy Grape-Orange jelly I also made after Cheesecake. Three big sweets in one single day..too much sugar? Oh well this is new year and who cares :)
Anybody interested in making Apple Crumble? Here is the recipe! :)

It was simply a fun day!

今年初編み!

e0049409_12384346.jpge0049409_1238158.jpge0049409_1238369.jpge0049409_12382998.jpgI found Keitodama at BookOff store for 300 yen the other day. It's rare that you can find Keitodama in such second-hand stores. And it was super cheap, lucky me. This is one of projects from the magazines that I'm working on right now - Pink Baby Cardi. And, this is my fifth pairs of gloves with one of my favorite yarns - Naif Angela! :)

白樺編みの応用法は?

e0049409_2152362.jpge0049409_2153541.jpgNaverstickning technique is fantastic, but I thought it would be difficult to use this with clothes. Let's say, to use as a bottom part of sleeves, how do you change to stocking sts or increase? Hmm I will need to read the book more carefully.

Then what my first trial can be? A sweater? No, too much for the whole sweater design. Socks? No way, I have no idea how to decrease or increase in the middle of the squares. So it ended up as an arm warmer. It's okay, but a bit sturdy looking.
