Hello my readers and friends stopping by,
Wow.. the weekend sure flew by quickly. And I’m already into Tuesday where I am already.. Over the weekend, I managed to Click and Clack.. Hehee.. Yup, you got me.. I was into knitting.. and using the pattern from this book:
Loop-d-Loop Lace by Teva Durham
There are sure many yummy projects in the book, I wish I could take all the pictures on put it up for you to see. Then on the other hand, I think I may get myself into some copyright issues if I do that. So I suggest that you check the book out in library or I’m sure you can also get a copy via Amazon. Anyway, I’ve picked this pattern to try. Most of the patterns are very suitable for temperate country. But at where I’m, always hot and sunny, I think this sleeveless one is much suitable for me.
(Yup, even the model looks so gorgeous in the book) LOL. So after a few try out and finding the correct circular needle. I settled for this in the end anyway.
Addi Turbo circular needles. (**Note to Self**, always get an Addi Turbo needle, cos the knitting experience is really different. All those stitches just slide through easily with this needle. Don’t bother saving up to buy cheaper needles). And so after I’ve placed an order and when the needle arrived, over the weekend, I was busy with this project.
After Row 50. So now, I just got to build on the length until the piece measured 16″ from the underarm.
Hell OMG that’s ALOT of knitting. Well, At least I got through the tough part ~Phew. I hope to complete this soon maybe by the end of this month or at least early August.
So before I end this post, I though I’ll share with you some pretty pictures too. I managed to get to the National Museum over the weekend to catch up with the Princely Treasures from the House of Liechtenstein.
And I’ve like the two paintings below:
And As I was walking around the city center, I caught this pretty window display. It was blossoming with flowers which at first I thought were paper flowers. However on the second look, it was made of shuttlecocks. So amazing. What a pretty idea.
~Phew, what a weekend. I’m glad it was a great one. Oh and before I forget, Congrats to the Duke and Duchess on the new arrival of a baby Boy.
