Knitting Accessories

Came across this useful accessories chart from Clover and wanted to share this. I dont seem to have all of these cute little tools yet too! The japanese have cleverly put them down on this page on some of these things that you may possibly need ... Do you have them too?

We are turning one!

Handknitter Craft Journal turns one on 8 October 2008! Hooray!

Its been a quick one year and we made it! Happy 1st anniversary!

This year has not been an especially eventful one. Been quite a quiet year, in fact. Not many knit works in progress this year and still have many works down the pipeline pending accomplishment. The list goes as follows:
1) my first pair of blue knit socks which I am still stuck with the 2nd pair

2) my beige shoulder warmer about 3/4 done but yet to complete

3) sewing up a third small pink pouch that i intend to give as a xmas present during year end to my friend and intend to knit up a few more for my colleagues

4) have to start knitting my xmas gifts - planning to do a small kerchief (pattern found inside my recent purchased book titled "Last Minute Knitted Gifts" from ....

So to sum it up, this has been quite a year of knitting bad debts!!

However, with this new start, I vow to get all these done up quickly and I hope to complete them within this year. May the knitting force be with me !!!

Sun Festival 2008 is here

Cant believe it! The Sun Festival is going to be here again from 17-26 October 2008! So I understand this festival was also celebrated at Tuscan, Italy in August 2008 and will be at Napa, California next year in July 2009 too. So after a successful launch of the Singapore’s premier arts and lifestyle festival last year, here it is again!

Last year I attended the Sun Festival with Teddy at the Botanic Gardens knitting away while watching the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" in the evening. It was good time spent there, laying our mat, having our sandwiches and watching a good movie. Spending some relaxing time of our own under the stars in the Gardens. Of course, plus I could knit away leisurely too..

Cant wait for the day to come. Got to take out my picnic basket and start planning on some nice food for a lovely evening out. Till that day, an experience awaits ... wish you can be here too!

A Feast for the Senses.

A Joy to Experience.

A Gift for the Soul.
