This is Fiori wearing new neckace that Lauri made just for her. The necklace is Lauri’s first original design. Fiori was happy with the necklace. You can tell from the big smile in her face. Probably I should open one account in ETSY for Lauri to sell her necklaces! LOL!
Lately I am having fun playing with Lauri’s long hair. I came across this blog, and inspired to try some of the hairstyles there.
These two below are my favorites so far. However, it took quite a long time to do it. I only do these styles when Lauri woke up early, otherwise she will be late to go to school.
I remember that I also had a long hair when I was at Lauri’s age, and my mom used to do my hair every morning before school. I sat down in front of her dressing table, and she would ask me what hairstyle I wanted to have that day. I always cherish that memory and I hope that Lauri will also cherish hers when she grows up.
After I published my Falling Leaves Top, on 15 Feb I was immediately starting to design a new knitting top. I know ….. It’s knitting project again. I am not in the mood to design something crochet because I haven’t finished my crocheted blanket yet. Also I don’t have enough spare time lately. I need more time to write crochet pattern. Drawing all those crochet chart really taking a lot of time.
I did not do a sketch for this new design as I really didn’t have a strong idea how it is going to look like. One thing for sure is that I want to have long lacy sleeves and a v neck. After that, well, I am not sure.
I am using Baby Georgia yarn. It’s fingering weight and it’s going to take forever. When I wrote this, I have already working on this project more than a month and yet I am only starting my third skein. I am planning to use up all 10 skeins, so I am only 20% finish. Like I said, I don’t have time to knit lately as both my daughters need my attention.
I live on a tropical island called Penang which is one of the states in a country called Malaysia, but it does not stop me from learning how to knit. I knew how to crochet since I was 6 and taught myself to knit about 4 years ago and after a couple of projects, I began designing my own patterns. I just love the process of designing my own patterns, from the imagining of the design to the drawing and even the math part of it. I love to wear something pretty and feminine and it is reflected in all of my designs. I have 2 small daughters that need a lot of attention besides my full time job, so I am happy enough if I can publish 3 patterns a year. My patterns can be found on my blog
and through Etsy and on Ravelry.
