After the disappointment with my capecho, I needed a quick fix of something. Something small, quick and preferably pretty.
So I made this
Pattern: None, just a strip of garter stitch
Yarn: Itaca Alessandra. 90% Wool 10% Cashmere
Needle: 12.00mm straight
Comment: I've been thinking of what to knit with the single ball of pretty yarn I got from Florence ever since I bought it. I have a bad habit of buying single balls of yarn just to own them, without knowing what to do with them most of the time. This turns out pretty cute, no? I'm not sure if it'll get much wear, but I am loving it. And the pom-pom, oh how I adore those pompoms ;).
One other UFO turned FO
Pattern: Booga Bag
Yarn: 3 skeins Noro Kureyon
Comment: My SP gave me the yarn and pattern for this bag, and I cast on straight away. However, it took me months to get around felting them(by hand, no less!), and another month to attach the handles. I'm worried that it wouldn't be strong enough without a lining though. Hands up if you want to help me line it! Just kidding, I think I'll stick to carrying light stuffs in there, like yarn. And now I want to do more felting!
Happy Chinese New Year, wish you all a prosperous year ahead! I wish I could be home to celebrate it with my family, I miss the preparation, the food, the company, and of course the red packet!
