Still here but disoriented...

Okay I must be like the worst partner anyone can have. I had received my funky scarf about a week ago and have yet to post about it *blush*. What's my excuse you'd say? Well....I still haven't gotten my hands on a friend's digi cam and I didn't want to post a boring blog without any pics and i want to show the funky scarf my partner had made me and also all the cute stuff that tagged along with it but exams are haunting me and then there was Eid celebration which wasn't much of a celebration since I have to dig my head into the books and my parents were here during Eid and the cable to my own mobile to transfer pics is not working either so ugh! other than that just time. So...yeah...

Exams started today and it's going to be dragged till mid of next month. That's 1 down 3 to go. I haven't been knitting much lately and I really want to cast on for a new project. The Katia Sevilla that I bought is tempting me to knit her. Yes I still haven't posted a pic on that yarn either! My so called yarn collection has found a new home. I bought a proper plastic container for them and transferred them from a box which that had stored A4 office photocopy paper reams. Poor things were packed without any mercy. Now there's more spaaaace...which means only one thing: I need to fill it up *hint hint*

Ah well this won't be a long post as I will *will* post a more interesting one...hopefully soon! Till then, just keep knitting people!

SP9 Questionaire

1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like?

I love to knit with soft yarns, cotton materials are the best to suit the weather here in Malaysia. Materials like made of nylon or polyester that gives the silky smooth touch is nice too. I guess wool is too hot for the humid weather but it would be fun to knit accessories with it. I don't like to knit with cheap acrylic because it's scratchy.

2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in?

Uhh....right now its scattered in one of my drawers and some are in the box together with the yarns hehe...Don't have a proper home for them

3. How long have you been knitting & how did you learn?

Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced? I've been knitting for about....8 months now and my bud (Rain) had thought me the basics and since then I'm hooked on to it. I think I'm an advanced beginner.

4. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list?

Yes I do but I'll link the site once I've updated it...soon....

5. What's your favorite scent? (for candles, bath products, etc.)

Lavender is an all time favourite. Eucalyptus is good too. Don't really fancy anything that is too sweet and also citrus smells, but other than that,anything would do.

6. Do you have a sweet tooth? Favorite candy?

For chocolate? definitely! I prefer dark chocolate over milk or white chocolate...Don't really have a favourite candy...hmmm did I mention that I love chocolate? ;)

7. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? Do you spin?

I'm not a crafty all....Come to think of it, knitting is the first craft that I actually love to do. I've learnt how to crochet too but that interest didn't last very long. I have never done any spinning but I would love to learn one day.

8. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD)

I listen to mostly everything from RnB to hip hop to pop to rock, or any of those relaxing music is nice...non heavy metal stuff though...And yes, my computer can play MP3.

9. What's your favorite color(s)? Any colors you just can't stand?

My favourite colour is PURPLE =) I also like blue, red, olive green...Anything that is not too bright. I don't like oranges, yellow or anything that is fluorescent.

10. What is your family situation? Do you have any pets?

Living with a younger sis. No pets.

11. Do you wear scarves, hats, mittens or ponchos?

I do wear scarves and occasionally hats. Mittens in a humid climate? nooope! And so far I haven't worn any ponchos.

12. What is/are your favorite item/s to knit?

I like to knit clothes and scarves.

13. What are you knitting right now?

A scarf.

14. Do you like to receive handmade gifts?

Yes definitely!

15. Do you prefer straight or circular needles?

Bamboo, aluminum, plastic? Circular needles. I would say aluminium is better than bamboo anytime. Haven't knitted with plastic yet tho...

16. Do you own a yarn winder and/or swift?

No to both

17. How old is your oldest UFO?

About 7 months..

18. What is your favorite holiday?

Yarn? hehe....nope I don't qualify to declare that I have a stash :(

Yarns? Where do I start?? there are so many gorgeous ones out there like Tilli Tomas and Claudia Handpainted sock yarn. Merino wool. Addi Turbo Needles. I don't have any subscription to knitting magazines but Katia Magazine and also Vogue Knitting have some really nice patterns to knit.

21. Are there any new techniques you'd like to learn?

I would want to learn how to knit socks. To knit accessories with wool and felt them.

F.O. Update

Lately I have mixed feelings of joy and minute I'm all happy and jumpy and the next thing I'll be sitting down and crying away..I guess it's because a lot of things has been going on and things are not exactly perfect in my little world. I'll save you all from the drama and so I'll be posting about my new F.O! =)

Well about 2 weeks ago a bought these:

And then two days later, after simple garter and stockinette stitches.....

It's really soft and glittery and I think it's suitable for evening wear. As of now I've bind off the stitches and it's nicely hanging in my wardrobe =) So this is my 2nd completed scarf.

I've also bought some Katia Sevilla but I'll post about that in my next blog...Till then, cheers everybody!

My mood so far:
