Cropped Cardigan

This cropped cardigan was knitted sometime ago and I like it very much and used it very frequently. Inspired by Lion Brand, Cropped Raglan Sweater, and I modified the pattern according to how I want my cropped cardigan to be. Thus, the following changes were made:

1. Double ribbing at the neckline, I knitted 1" instead of 2.5".
2. Front bands: I knitted 1" single ribbing vertically at each end and knitted together with the body.
3. Sleeves bands: I changed to single ribbing of 2.5".
4. Lower body was ended with 5" single ribbing.

Yarns used: Rowan all seasons cotton. 4.5 balls x 90m/50g
Colour: Surf 162
Gauge:18sts x 25rows = 4ins
Needle: Addi 3.5mm & 4mm addi circular needle

Moss Lacy Wrap

Moss Lacy Wrap completed last week. As you can see from the pictures, I didnt knit the end ruffle for both ends. Reason being; running out of yarns!!

Initially I planned to use these yarns to knit a cropped cardigan but changed my mind immediately when i saw this Lacy wrap pattern in IK Falls 2007. It was the end ruffle attracted me most when i saw the pattern. And now I knitted it without the end ruffle! Anyway, can always knit another one when i have the time ya.

Smocking Dresses

While i was trying to re-arrange some space in the cupboard for my knitting stuff, i found some of these treasures.....


These smocking dresses were made for my dd when she was abt 4 -6 yrs old then and now she is already in her teen! I remembered i have made abt 20 + pieces for her and most of them were given away when she was abt 8 - 9 yrs old and felt smocking dresses are only for smaller girls! These 3 pieces were the 1st batch which i did for her and DD told me that she will keep these for her dd next time! lol.. I learn smocking from some magazines and still keeping these magazines in very good order.
