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.

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.
