Baby Granny Jacket

The problem with having more than 1 blog and a few social networking to maintain is, sometimes you forgot what  you published or not published yet.

Well some of you might still remember I post about this socks in my previous post.

Baby Socks

I manage to made a granny jacket with the same color. This baby jacket and baby sock arrived safely in my hometown Medan. Yes I made those for my new nephew. Actually this is not the first time for me to make a baby granny jacket. I modified from my memory making the first one. This time I just modified the collar part.

I use smaller type of yarn for this second time, and I have to add more rows to make the size ok. Actually I’m just guessing the size. My nephew was born premature, I’m sure this jacket will be too big for him and will fit on him until he is 1 year old.

Shawl Knit

WIP - KnitDo you still remember this work in progress that feels like forever will be WIP?  I remember I started to cast on around 2 years ago while I just started learn knitting. After a few drop stitches I gave up. I wanted to rip it off once, I felt the yarn colors are a little bit weird. But my laziness won, too lazy to rip it off. I changed my mind and just continue to knit it once a while and this is how it looks on June 2009.

Finally I did it. After almost 2 years, I cast it off and call it finished project. The shawl is not too wide but long enough. I am thinking to use it as a shrug-shawl.

I once wonder why people like to make this amigurumi things? I ignored all the beauty of amigurumi, but now…I don’t know how to stop and I even don’t want to crochet other project than amigurumi.

The good thing about making amigurumi is: I don’t make pile of work-in-progress. I can finish the project in no time and I don’t get the chance to be bored.

Maybe I should consider to also sew some dolls? I bet my cousin will tease me if I sew more dolls than she is ^_^

More Amigurumi and Quilt Projects

Penguin AmigurumiRecently I don’t have a lot of time to do crafts. Amigurumi is still the best choice for me. It’s quick and there’s no need to be perfect in following the pattern. It also don’t need huge amount of yarn. I can use my extra yarns and when I don’t have the instructed color I can always replace it with what I have in my stash.
