I Wanna Wish You A Merry Christmas....

I went away to villa for the Christmas holiday with my extended family. All I did there was eat and sleep. And of course I knit too. Here's my Christmas FO...

Cabled Beret, modeled by my very cute nephew, Brian.
Pattern from Sirdar leaflet
Yarn used Sirdar Denim Tweed, 1 ball(though the pattern specified 2)
Finished in 2 days!

Anyway, don't you just LOVE Christmas? I know I do. Even though Christmas spirit isn't as visible here as it is overseas, I still feel the love. My dream is to have a Western style Christmas with my family one day. You know, with the real Christmas tree, presents wrapped in red and green under the decorated tree, family dinner, Christmas pudding, etc. And of course, one very important part, hand knitted Christmas stocking.

Yeah, enough for day dreaming, I wanna share with you another FO. I knitted this one earlier this year, before I started blogging.

Cabled Vest for Brian
Yarn used Sirdar Snuggle 4 ply, less than 2 balls.
And here you can see the benefit of knitting in larger size for toddler, it fits longer!

Well, new year is only 4 days away, I'll be back with my new year resolution! Being ever so lazy to write diary, I always wrote at least once, right on new year's midnight. This time I think I'm going to share it with you guys ;).

Once again, I wish you all a Merry Christmas. Hope everyone had a great Christmas ;)

Happy new year to you...I can understand the whole thing about taking your yarn stash with you: when I returned from Beijing to Singapore, I came back with 3 *whole* boxes of yarn!

Thank god my company took care of the relocation! (hehe)

Now I'm back to stashing since I am stocking yarn for my knitting classes! (That's my excuse to hubby...)

The real tree really adds to the atmosphere and the aroma of Christmas. We splurged on a real Christmas tree here in Singapore and it reminded me so much of home in the US!
