Merry Christmas!

After waiting days to open the presents under the christmas tree, finally today she was able to do it. She woke up early in the morning before everybody else. I was quite surprise that she was able to wake up that early considering she slept quite late.

Oh, and the christmas tree, she hang all the ornaments herself.

Lauri's First Stage Performance

On last 29 November, Lauri was having her first stage performance. Her kindy organized a concert for celebrating their 10th anniversary. Lauri’s class had 2 performances, dancing and singing.
Lauri singing and dancing on the last good bye song with the entire kids

I brought Fiori along to see the concert since my in laws were attending wedding dinner. Since I had to carry Fiori with me, it’s very difficult to take the video properly. My hand could not hold the camera (it has video function) properly. Hubby was taking the DSLR camera since that camera was much bigger and heavier.
Fiori was watching her sister's performance attentively
Lauri was enjoying her experience and the next day she even asked to go to concert again. Hahahahaha!

Fiori Start Solid Food

Since Fiori already 6 months old, on 3 December I started to give her solid food. I was hoping that she won’t become a picky eater like her sister, but I guess I have to face the reality.

Here was the first spoon:

And her reaction:

Then when I gave her another spoon, she started shaking her head.

Actually, when I gave Lauri her first solid, she was enjoying it. The first few months it was fun to feed her, because she opened her mouth everytime I fed her, and she finished her bowl of porridge very fast. Then somehow she became more difficult to feed until now.

Waving Balloon...!

This video was taken when we visited Gurney Plaza on 16 November. It was the first trip for Fiori to a Mall. At that time Sakae Sushi was having grand opening. They opened another outlet in Gurney Plaza’s new wing. Thus, both Lauri and Fiori had a balloon each. To my surprise Fiori could grab the balloon’s stick and she even waved it. See the video yourself.

Sneak Peak

Here is the sneak peak of the lace pattern. How do you like it? I got this pattern from The Knitting Stitch Bible by Maria Parry-Jones called Falling Leaves.

And these are the button that I plan to use. I think I have about total 16 pcs of these buttons. They are made of glass. I got them from ebay at $10. I am going to use some of them on the sleeves part.

My Next Original Design

Probably you are wondering what is on my needle. Even though I was neglecting this blog for such a long time, I am still knitting. I am knitting my next new design using this 4 ply cotton Jaeger Sienna.

I didn’t make any drawing this time, because it is a simple design with interesting details on the sleeves and lace from the waist down. I still don’t have opportunity to take photo, but even I did, I don’t think it looks interesting in this stage. My prediction, it will be finish in the next 2 weeks. Anybody interested to test the pattern? It is boat neck, raglan sleeve, knit from top down and in around, and lace design from waist down.
