More Hats

I like this scarf for the colour is beautiful and choose a simple way to round up the edge.

I like to knit hat for it is fast to complete. But this takes me a little more time as no pattern of it. I need to check the size and the pattern along knitting. When there is anything wrong, I have to re-done the rows again. It is excellent that it is completed at last.

The round thing that I posted on the last post, is a hat. The top of the hat.

Another hat with purple and pink in between. I like this as it is more young look.

Now, I have mood to knit more hat. It is fast and not difficult.

It is difficult to choose a pattern for such a multi-colour yarn. Several have been tried. Finally, this is picked. It seems not so bad.

Guess what I am knitting ? Tell you when I finish it.

After scanning through my crochet pattern book, this wave pattern is chosen for my creamy colour scarf. This yarn is not expensive and worth for knitting. Although it is 100% acrylic, it is soft and warm.

I have read many blogs that most bloggers are busy knitting Christmas stuff for their family and friends. The stuff are very beautiful and special, such as knitting the ipod case. What are the special things that you are knitting as a gift ??

Leaf and Flower Style

I really love the leaf and flower patter. You see, a scarf with dayflower pattern which I extract from a dayflower shawls. This purple colour is lovely and with some sparkle.

Sometimes, it is difficult to reflect the true colour by using digital camera. After picture it, I have to use the photo softeware to edit the colour, brightness, contrast, and sharpness to get a satisfied picture.

Still have not decided what to knit of the other purple colour yarn posted previously. Also I have 2 balls of cream colour yarn and want to crochet a scarf. Pattern is searching.

I love buying yarns and always go to LYS to buy yarns. To see what I have bought.

I love Sirdar Snuggly yarn, they are super soft and very suitable for baby. I love purple colour and this yarn has some sparkle. Haven't decide what to knit, may be the "dayflower scarf", of which the pattern is extracted from my new ordered book named Shawls and Scarves.

Another Sirdar Snuggly yarn with purple colour. The same, haven't decide what to knit.

Instant food is always loved by any people all over the world. See this blog. Is it very trouble to cook fresh book? It needs go to market to buy. After bought, it needs washing, seasoning,...... cooking...... Oh, there are so many steps to finish the cooking of one dish.

Knit, Knit, Knit, Travel, Travel, Travel, Travel, Travel ......

My mind wants travel, travel, travel, travel, .......
My heart wants travel, travel, travel, travel, travel, .......

When Christmas is coming, I always want to travel to somewhere. Also reminds me Germany for it has a big Christmas Bazaar throughout Germany.

Also remind me a book written by John Grisham, call "Skipping Christmas". I think it is fun to read this book during Christmas time. To see how an aged couple try to go away from their own village and enjoy Christmas somewhere. At Hong Kong, it is very easy, just buy the air ticket and book the hotel and go anywhere if u can.

Travel to Bremen : Chicken is in the photo, beware of the bird flu, keep running.

Travel to Rothenburg : Wa, so many presents, which one is the biggest, which one I should pick.

Travel to Fussen : How romance, Prince and Princess are having their Christmas holiday at here

Travel to Munich : Sightseeing Bus, please don't stop, keep going

Hope you enjoy these photos. In future, try to share some other travel photos to all of you. But I have to ask my friend to share her digital photos to me for I just have my digital camera recently.

Knit Another Diamond Pattern Scarf

I knit another diamond pattern scarf using Sirdar baby 4 ply yarn. The effect is excellent and quite difference from the mohair yarn (the belowed picture). But I still love them all. Hope that this light green one will be finished before end of Nov as the yarn is very thin.

Knit A Lace Shawl

Oh, I finally finish this lace shawl from a Japanese Book. It is very hard to do blocking of such a large piece of shawl. As this is my first time to knit such lace, for my ease, I choose this Sirdar Baby 4ply - the light orange colour (I don't know how to describe this colour). It is very thin yarn (50g each ball with 226m long). The yarn suggests to use 3.25mm needle but I change to 4.5mm needle so as to achieve the lace style. It works and extremely fine. This baby yarn is super soft and light and not bulky as it takes 3 balls (150g). I afraid that it does not large enough, so I add the edging by myself. I still have not skillful enough to knit the lace edge and attach to the master piece, I have to practice more.

At the time, I also bought this light melon colour to knit the diamond pattern scarf that I posted previously. Just start, will post picture after a few inches are knitted.

Tuesday, November 22, 2005


Haven't wrote on this blog for nearly ten days. I am now busy knitting a half-circle shawls which from a Japan book. I cannot post the pattern here for it is a photocopy. It will be not clear to post a picture of a photocopy.

And also knitting a diamond pattern scarf (posted previously), this time using a Sirdas baby 4 ply instead of the mohair. I pick the light green apple colour and the texture is excellent soft. Few rows are knitted, the outcome is unexpected nice, I love it.

Christmas is coming

Oh, this pink rose leaf scarf is completed I think I should try another laceweight wool yarn to knit such a scarf for mohair may be itch to someone.

Christmas is approaching, let me think about Rothenburg (Germany) that I travel on May 2005. I like Germany and take time to travel few cities, such as Fusen, Kassel, Wurzburg, Munich and Hamburg. Rothenburg is an ancient city where has a Christmas Museum, I just take a browse of it for time is limited. It is amusing and exciting that I haven't seen such Christmas decoration stuff at Hong Kong. Anyone who interest on it should take to travel this city.

Knit A Rose Leaf Lace Scarf

I have search this 78% mohair yarn to knit it using 5.5mm needle. Only cast on 25 sts to give you 5.5 inch wide before blocking. After blocking, it may be longer and wider. It is great that only one ball is needed and it is merely finished. I like Aplaca Cloud from but they don't take international order. So upto now, I am still searching more fine yard to knit some lace pattern , may be kid merino, etc....

After keeping searching, I now have some lace shawls pattern wanted to knit and don't want to make a wish list. For this will give me some pressure when to finish it. I always change my mind of what to knit and only knit a thing matched my mood.

New book arrived

To my surprise, my ordered shawls and scarves book has arrived on July 5, 2005 (Sat). I am happy that I don't have to wait 6-8 weeks as the publisher said, and enjoy the book very much during this weekend. To see whether I can choose those most simple one to knit. To knit those lace pattern, what yarn should I use. Can anyone suggest one to me or any on-line shop that I can order. It is very hard to find such yarn at Hong Kong.

Another lace scarf

As mentioned on previous post, I have finished this diamond lace scarf. Now, I find out that I really fond of knitting lace and now try to collect more lace pattern. My great wish is to knit a large circle, triangle and rectangle shawls from some of the great lace book. At Hong Kong, you really cannot buy such a lace knitting book so must order it from on-line. I have already ordered one and waiting for its arrival. It needs to wait about 6-8 weeks to reach Hong Kong (will be reached me around End of Nov 05). It really loose my patient to wait for such a long time. It will be a Christmas gift for me.

My web-shop is finally created. I would be grateful if you can take time to browse it and give me some comment.

Last week, I am busy to construct my web-shop which is the extension of my selling of Yahoo Auction. Busy to take new photos of my knitting stuff, the design of the image, etc.etc.

Re the mohair that I bought last week, originally planned to knit a half circle shawls but I don't think I have enough yarns. So I change my mind to knit a mohair scarf with diamond lace pattern. Up to today, half of scarf is knitted and need one more week to finish it for I still go ahead work hard of my web-shop.

Small sweater

I use my leftover of yarns to knit this sweater and now it is completed. It doesn't look so bad. But there is also some leftover of fine yarn, I have no plan what to knit. Any suggestion ?

This mohair is bought for knitting a half circle lace shawl. I always want to knit this type of shawl but worry that I don't have that level of knitting technique. On the yarn label, it suggests to use 4mm needle, I have tested this but a little bit cann't get the felling and image of the lace. I think I should try 4.5mm needle.

Not free anymore in HK Yahoo Auction

I love knitting, only want to knit everything to fullfil my wishes and challenge my knitting skill, therefore I post some in HK Yahoo Auction.

But just notified by HK Yahoo, they are going to levy charges on its Auction services starting Nov 1, 2005, I don't feel happy on this. At this moment, I still thinking what should I do to cope with this changes. My friends suggest me to create a new blog as my web-shop and I will try and think. It takes my time and effort to post all my knitting products in a new blog and retype all the description. This action also affect all the sellers in HK Yahoo Auction.

Sigh, What a pity !!!!!!!!!!!!

Mix and Match

These are the leftover of thick yarns I can find to knit a short cardigan. Do the colours mix ? I don't have any idea but let's see the outcome.

Tuesday, October 11, 2005

Finished and a New Start

You see, this mohair scarf is completed. Is it beautiful ? And I love it deadly.

I have searched my leftover of yarns, and decided to knit a short cardigan without sleeves using different colours. I don't know why I don't like to knit sleeves. It is hard to arrange the colour. Today is the HK holiday, to see whether I can start it.

Lately, I love to knit the lace pattern of scarf and shawl to challenge my knitting skill. Try hard to search it in the internet. Does anyone read this blog, please advise me and leave your message in the "comment" . Thanks a lot.

Getting Cool

When knitting the mohair scarf, I feel there is something wrong with it. I change the needle size to 4mm (before I use 4.5mm) and the knitting method of one stitch. After changed, it seems OK and nice while knitting along. For one ball of this Hamanaka Mohair yarn, I can knit around 29" long. If I make "blocking" afterwards, it will be a little bit of longer. I am eager to complete it. But I feel pain in my wrist of both hands, it may because I knit this scarf day and night. I need to put it down for a while before go ahead. I do not want I cannot knit in future.

From the weather news, it will be cooler within a few days, so I quickly search my wardrobe. I find my vest knitted at the beginning of this year, of which I have not worn it. This wool yarn have been brought for many years ago, but it still quite in good condition. In my drawer, there are still many yarns have not been knitted. I think I should try to re-arrange them to see what I can knit from them . There are so many colours and some are not enough balls to knit a vest. For some are brought by me and some are given by friends.

Knitting a scarf

A few days ago, I have brought 2 balls of Japan Hamanaka Yarn with mohair and arylic to knit a scarf. It is soft and warm and the colour#3 is the hot colour (said by the yarn shop owner). The pattern is searched from the internet and said 175m long is enough, so I brought 2 balls of yarn (total 200m). I just start a few rows and don't know when to complete. Hope that need not wait too long, I will knit hard.

I am trying introduce the to my friends, so we all can share our knitting collection. It is quite fun to write blog, like a writer writing an article.

New member to this blog


Hi, everybody,

I am a Chinese girl, living at Hong Kong, very fond of knitting, crochet, reading and travelling. I like to travel with my friends and not like to join the travel tour for it can explore the place anywhere.

I feel vey exciting and nervous to create my first blog. I find that at HK, there is no much blog like this and talking about knitting. In foreign country, I know there are so many.

Now, my brain is blank and I do know what to type. In future, I will use time to build up this blog. At here, I upload one of my knitting scarf that I have put in HK Yahoo Auction for sale. I would like to start a business in internat selling and I don't whether this e-shopping is OK at HK. I know in foreign countries, it is very popular. But I will go ahead and keep trying.
