East Beach Tee – Third Time Lucky?

Looks like my chosen two colors for the East Beach Tee are not meant to be. Regardless of the combination I came up with, it turns out I cannot make this project with these two - I'd fall short on one color every time. So I frogged some of the project, and changed the contrast … Continue reading East Beach Tee – Third Time Lucky?

New Project – East Beach Tee

So turns out I'm not making a poncho. 🙂 Since I didn't find many poncho (or swoncho) designs for the two colors of yarn that I want to use next, and I'm still not in a design-friendly state of mind, I thought the East Beach Tee by Meghan Kelly would work best as my next … Continue reading New Project – East Beach Tee

Argyle-Patterned Cosmetic Bag

Argyle-Patterned Cosmetic Bag | Anita

I'm supposed to be knitting a poncho, but even after much looking around, I didn't find any pattern that I felt suited the two colors that I want to use for this project. Nor was I in the headspace where I could design one by myself. So of course, I ditched this project for the … Continue reading Argyle-Patterned Cosmetic Bag

Yesteryear Yoke

My Yesteryear yoke is now operational! 🙂 I'm so happy that I chose this pattern to replace the destroyed lace in my top, because it complements the top so perfectly. (The pattern is Yesteryear Top by Mimi Alelis.) I crocheted the yoke just as described in the pattern. Well, almost. I did make a few … Continue reading Yesteryear Yoke

WIP: Yesteryear Yoke

My crochet project is now underway! I mentioned in my previous post that I own a top that I've only worn once so far - its lace yoke disintegrated at places when I washed it. (Talk about delicate!) I've been looking at making a crochet yoke for the top, so I can add it back … Continue reading WIP: Yesteryear Yoke

Puck’s Tunic Inspired Shawl

Looks like I managed productive bursts of knitting towards the end of my current project, and completed it as a surprise move! I'm as surprised as you are - I certainly expected this post to be an I'm-almost-there one. This shawl is inspired by Puck's Tunic from Susanna IC. I knit the shawl with sections … Continue reading Puck’s Tunic Inspired Shawl

Puck’s Tunic Inspired Shawl – WIP

My current project, a shawl for my sister, is inspired by a tunic. She really liked the pattern when we browsed through magazines for potential candidates, and I just have to multiply the pattern by N to make a shawl from a tunic, right? 🙂 Puck's Tunic is designed by Susanna IC. (Remember my Oshara … Continue reading Puck’s Tunic Inspired Shawl – WIP
