Short post

This was a quick project that I finished within a week.

A mobile phone cover for my sis. Since she saw mine, she wanted one too, but with some modifications. Its the same Yugioh pattern that Rain has used to knit mine.

She likes it, but now she wants it in pink!!

I've started knitting a sock with the sock yarns I got from my SP. I will post about it soon..almost finishing one side of it.

2nd SP Package!

Yesterday I was at home all day and only went out in the evening. And to my surprise I found a note for me from the post office saying that there was a parcel for me. The suspense was killing me as I could only pick it up the next day (which was today). I wasn't expecting a package from my SP at all. But it indeed was from her!

The package was sent out 19th of December last year! Oh gosh you can't imagine what the box had gone thru...By the time I got it, it was literally bandaged again and again just barely surviving the journey all the way to Malaysia. I don't know if there was a mix up in the post causing its delay.

You poor poor thing protected the goodies inside all this time

After I got it I was reeeeallly curious as to what was waiting for me! But since the box was completely taped from all angles I had to wait till I reached home...

And taaa daaaa......

Yessss I got 4 balls of Regia sock yarn!! My first ever set of sock yarns! Yarns that are actually meant for socks! I can finally knit socks! I.can.finally.knit socks.

*takes a deep breath*

Okay so where was I...Yes sock yarns.

Two of them are Regia Silk Color which is 55% merino wool, 20% silk and 25% polyamide..SO soft! And the other two are Regia Bamboo Color - 45% Bamboo, 40% Merino wool and 15% polyamide. Correct me if i'm wrong here, but is the yarn made out of bamboo??? Like bamboo as in the tree?? But but how on earth is it sooo soft!!!

Here's a close up of the yarn......

I also got a set of 3mm dpns, Rose scented shower gel, candle. There was an unfortunate incident though, The potpurri stuff that you see was actually in a bag but the side of the plastic bag was torn and it was all over the box lol! No wonder the box jingled when I got it haha!

I'm gonna knit socks soon! I'm gonna knit socks soon......Socks...Socks....sSsSocks!

Thanks a lot for the wonderful package SP!!!!

First FO of 2007!

This is fresh off the needles!

***Drum roll please****

Presenting my FIRST F.O for 2007!!! ----> Flower Basket Shawl!!

Its a one skein wonder!

Don't you dare look for mistakes! :P

I'm so soo proud of this F.O. albeit the mistakes I made along the way. This I'm definitely going to keep for myself. My first lace project! Hopefully I get to wear it out soon! Ahhh yes, I only ONE skein of Knit Picks Shadow. I hadn't plan to knit the shawl at all with this. I got it because I fell in looove with the colour.

Now I have to think of what to knit next...Hmmm.....FBS was keeping me company when I was watching Grey's Anatomy and House and Friends and Las Vegas on my ever so loyal laptop. And now I don't have anything to knit and I ran out of tv series to watch too! Ah yes I need to block the shawl. Hopefully the length will be perfect after blocking.

I need to go yarn shopping. NEED to. I don't have a stash mind you! Okay except for a few skeins of laceweight yarn I got from knitpicks. So I don't need an excuse to get more yarn :P :P Got to get something for my SP too...Need to send out the next package asap.

Okay peeps I'm going to look for something to watch and let my hair down..It's friday! Have a great weekend!

Happy New Year!

It's that time of the year again...
when everybody look forward to...
counting down to a brand new year

People around the world gather together,
all anxious and excited for the clock to strike 12
when all fireworks

will paint the sky with all beautiful colours
we all wait

Just for that moment...

Although it's just another day,
nothing's extraordinary about it
but maybe to some people,
it's the mark of a brand new start;
or a wake up call;
or a time to turn over a new leaf;
or a brand new year to look forward to more better things;
it could be hopes and dreams for a better future
where January 1st will mark a new beginning
wishing for a good year
hoping for the better

As for me,
here are my hopes and wishes for the brand new year 2007:
I wish for happiness and good health
I wish for my mom to get better and healthier
I wish for my sister and me to do well in college
I wish for continued good relationships with friends and family
I will try to be a better person that I can be
I want to learn how not to worry about the smallest problems (this usually affects me a lot)

Well there are so many things that I want to do but I don't want to make promises to myself that I won't keep.

So what are your hopes and wishes for the new year?
Whatever they may be,
I wish you (yes, you reading this blog right now)
all the best for the new year, with good things coming your way
and may God be with you too.
