Still catching up...

In my last post I mentioned about some great gifts I received and should've blog about weeks ago.Mimi sent me some amazing stuffs from her US trip!

Inside the pretty box there are 2 hanks of yummy Lorna's Laces Sheperd Sock in "Watercolor" that I've been wanting to try for ages, a skein of Bernat Cotton Tots that I used for the Flower Washcloth(see previous post), a pretty accessories box that's already overstuffed by now, a cute sheep tape measure that I've been wanting too, 2 delicious smelling soap, skin and bath products from L'occitane(my fav!) and some paper set. Amazing, no? I can't thank you enough, Mimi! My mom was so impressed that I've actually got a friend who'd send me something like this ;)

And that's not all, I've got my final package from my no-longer-a-secret-pal Amy! Check out these yummy yarns she sent me! 1 skein of Trekking XXL, 2 hanks of LL Sheperd Socks(yumyum!!), 1 hank of KP Memory and 2 skeins of KP Palette.

There's also a measuring tape pen that I like a lot, it's already in my pencilcase now. Thanks for being a great pal, Amy! I love the gifts you got me!

I'm feeling really lucky to be in this community, just look at these great friends that I find here!

Anyway, I've got some more small FOs to show you too!

Fat Bottom Bag
Pattern Source: Stitch N Bitch Happy Hooker
Yarn: Sirdar yarn I got from charity shop
Hook: 5.5 mm
Comments: I love this bag! It was easy and made good use of cheap acrylic yarn. The different flower pins give different feeling to it, don't you think? It's already claimed by my Mom anyway, but I might make one for myself ;)

Unnamed Scarf
Pattern source: Out of nowhere, but I think there's something similar in SnB book
Yarn: 4 skeins of Leisure yarn, it's 50% Australian wool and 50% acrylic
Needle: 4.00 mm bamboo circular
Comments: I cast-on for this scarf on my flight here. It's a nice mindless knit, using cabling without cable needle technique. I love how the yarn looks kinda tweedy when knitted up, however it's not the softest yarn ever, I hope a little bath would change that.
Anyway, the first picture of the scarf is taken on my room window, nice view huh?
