A more interesting post

Since I can't seem to concentrate on doing anything all for the past couple of days, I thought I should put up some pics here. I am still coughing away non-stop. I've been taking cough syrup/pills, honey and lime remedy, chlorophyll, vitamin C and even Chinese herbs!! *cough cough* and still no change! I even dreamt that a smurf was able to cure me, right smurfy??

This is the butterfly vest that i wanted to knit so much. It didn't take that long to knit, maybe about 2 weeks or so. This picture is of me modeling it. I've yet to get a camisole to wear it with, so thats me wearing a white t-shirt underneath. Picture is kinda crappy but this is the best to show the lace on it. I just need to block the frills into shape. The vest pretty much fits me so I'm not going to block it any bigger.

Next, the supposed socks for mom. Bleh. It's so huge! It fits me and I'm a size 8. Mom's a size 5. You get the picture?? I dumped it in the yarn container till I figure out what to do with it.

This, is my current project - Clapotis using the Rowan Tapestry Yarn in Rustic, given to me from SP9. I've started the straight rows and I'm intending to finish up all 3 balls that I have.

And finally look who visited me...

The yarn that I won at Courtney's blog is finally here!! Trust me the colours of the yarn are 10 times better than what you see in this picture. It's just so so amazing!!! It's got all favourite colours rolled into one! I don't even dare to unwind the skin, just want to sit and stare at it! It's still in the zip lock bag and in the box it came in, for safe keeping. I might just frame it ha ha!

Thanks so much Courtney!! I have to say that your dyeing skills are amazing!! Don't know how you had the heart to let Blues Clues go.

Okay I think that's all for now. I will tryyyy to get down to doing my assignments now. I will return soon to vent about more things.

Thanks for dropping by and happy knitting!!

A quick update and a contest

I apologize for the long absence people! Reports have been haunting me for the past week. I can't remember what happened since the day I last posted.

Hmm Mother's Day came and went and I had really wanted to knit my mom a pair of socks but I failed. For one thing, I didn't have much time to knit (nah, I can't knit that fast) and whatever I knitted so far is pretty darn big for her. She is only a size 5!! Yes, pictures in the next post I promise.

Ah yes, I finished the butterfly vest more than a week ago but I just didn't have the time to post about it yet. I promise some pictures of it sooon...soonn..

What else...I've been writing pages and pages..and pages on genes of fruit flies (what on earth for?!) and another one on an anticonvulsant drug. All of which I finally got rid off on Monday. And what's my reward if you ask --> getting sick with a bad dry cough =*( I really hope I'll recover soon because FINALS are coming up!

Anyways, I know this is a boring pictureless post. Now go check out a contest Ali is hosting. Some wonderful prizes are waiting for the winner!

So here's a list of my summer knitting goals:
1. Knit a shrug
2. Knit a Swallowtail shawl
3. Knit up a pair of footies for myself
4. Knit a pair of socks for mom..somehow

That's all I could think of right now since my yarn stash is very limited. Ahh hopefully I get to shop for some yarn soon =) It might just cure my cough hehe!

Don't forget to mention that you found out about this contest on my blog because every refferal will qualify you for an extra entry!!
