Past Sunday, DH and I went for a walk by the seaside. Besides the exercise, I had other plans in mind, such as to take some photos for my post. As you heard before, sport is not my forte, so it helps to add some knitting excitement to the occasion. A few days ago, I found a vest I had knitted couple years ago and have completely forgotten about it and is not even included in my gallery. Take a look, more bobbles? You know I like to knit them! :D
DH was a bit curious of why I was carrying a bag for the walk! Hehe, there was a reason behind, in the bag I had my camera and my newest WIP. We do all these weird things to fulfill the hobby.
As Spring is just around corner, I've decided that I will start to name my future projects with flower names to add more enjoyment to the colorful season. Thus, giving a break to my stones' name. Now presenting, my violet sweater in progress by the seaside...
It was a bit awkward to take this picture with people around and specially that the yarn ball rolled down on the ground as I was trying quickly to to unroll the sides. :D It was worthy, I like this picture, much better than my usual photo background at home!
This is a design from the latest Fall/Winter World Knitting 2005. I had planned to knit with cotton but the weather still permits me to touch wool, so I picked up my violet yarn in the stash. Sometimes, I have a strong desire to have a design in a specific color, don't know why, just feel that the design will look better only in certain colors.
I decided to share a photo of my newest knitting bag that I bought in my last trip to Singapore. I found that it's wide enough for my straight needles ( I still prefer the old straight type), it's fully equipped with small compartments outside and inside as well to accommodate a good amount of knitting gadgets, in addition it's super light. The bag is from Kipling , did you notice the little monkey hanging on the side?
Last is a display of my latest acquisitions in knitting books. Yes, I am still addict to it, though I have seen some improvements.
The first top left is for DH, to my surprise, he wants more sweaters! Middle top one has a lot of easier and simpler patterns but nothing very extraordinary. So is the same for Keitodoma Spring 2006 and Rich More, which I only have liked the cover one, it has an interesting composition, similar to the Sunrise Jacket from the latest Vogue.
Amu January edition has a beautiful crochet wedding dress and bouquet; however, nothing that I would knit in the rest of the magazine. And the last one is a great stitch pattern magazine. It has lots of very intricate designs. I think it's worth to add it to the library, most of the patterns are new ones that differ a lot from the conventional stitch books.
