good morning Niki !

I have not decide yet to keep it myself or as a gift... will have to see after blocking....

Boy, you are busy !!!!! branching out and french market bag ...i almost wanted to knit them ...but my list is like toilet paper long... that is why i never have a blog...it would be no time to knit....

you should visit the yarn house...alot of stuff in a small house... people there are nice too...hmmm i had been knitting and crochet since 18... extensive knitting start when i m 21 onwards.. did you see the Vogue holiday knitting magazine yet....alot of stuff i want to knit !!!!

you should sign what for Joann fabric coupons i got mine 40% discount all the time... i use that to buy magazine (if there is one that caught my eye) and alot of knitting gear... that is a lot of savings !!! how about pick one project that we can work on ??? anything in mind let me know...have a great day

Jasmine

That's a great idea! Do you have any projects in mind? I have a skein of Kid Silk Haze if you want to do something with lace.

Thanks for the tip about Joann's. I would have never thought to do that. Vogue Knitting is great this year. I especially like that white Christmas stocking but it looks so complicated.

So the Yarn House, according to Mapquest, is only 2 miles away from where I work! I had no idea I was so close to a yarn store. You made my day!

Good Morning,

I love Knitpicks! What alpaca did you get? I just got their needles and love them.

That's a beautiful shawl! I'm not sure if I could do something like that. I've only been knitting about 6 months. The only lace I've done is Branching Out and I'm struggling with that!

Would you be interested in something like these? Or would they be boring for you?
Sweet Somethings There are some cute, lace wraps and shawls there. Another idea would be Cozy?

Talk to you soon!
Niki

Good Morning Niki,

We can knit along when you are comfortable... or when you finished some of your projects... I will be going to Singapore Nov 05 (see my parents) then to Maldives (for holidays) and will be back on dec 08... so we got plenty of time to start the knit-along together....

you got to show me your work...here is some of my work

http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting...500&highlight=

Oh boy hopefully i wont crash the pc .... fully loaded !!!

we can continue to search the pattern and we can decide when to start the knit-along....i do not want to scare you off.... haha ... let me know what you think...have a great day and dun forget to check yarn house out ... I bought alpaca cloud (100% baby alpaca) very fine and it soft to knit lace....i m getting more needles when i come home in dec...got too many all hanging on my current projects !!!

i love their cables...so soft and bendable... i would like to try the magic loop one of these days... it seem fun... okie ...will talk to you soon

love, Jasmine

Your work is beautiful! You are very talented! I will have send you a link to some of my projects.

Have you knit with the Alpaca cloud yet? I have one skein but haven't tried it yet. What are you planning to make with it?

Your trip sounds like so much fun! Is Singapore where you're originally from? It must be so nice to go someplace warm, too. Especially since it's snowing today! Have you been to Maldives before? It looks like heaven! We'll have to get together when you get back for sure.

Your idea of a lacy shawl is wonderful. Maybe we could start off with something a bit simpler and then move on to something more advanced for the next project? What do you think?

Tonight I'm taking a intro beading class with a friend. I'm hoping I can get out of work early enough to visit that yarn shop.

Have a good night!

Hi Niki,

Thank you for your compliment ...it took me many years of research and hard work to figure all those stitches out... internet is the best learner ..

I am unwinding the yarn right now into the ball ...i am using them to knit my next lacy shawl ...cos they are feather weight and warm...so it nice to make them into lacy shawl or bigger scarf

Yes i was born in Singapore ...yup every nice there sunny every day ha ha yup snow abit yesterday... i cannot wait to get out of these weather ...my skin is so dry and cracked this weather sure use alot of lotion and cream .. Maldives is my first visit ... it going to be a fantastic trip for us ... laying in the sun and relax for my husband ....and knitting in the sun for me

Sure.. we can do that ... we can start with easy lace then move up and up for the complicated ones... alway tell yourself if someone can write the pattern and knit it...so can we !

Oh beading class sounds fun ! One of these days i would like to do beading knitting... it would be so classy on lace project too....

yes we could meet up and knit together ... i cannot wait !!! maybe we can start a knit along buddies .. what do you think ?

i am so glad that i found you as my knitting buddy..and we are so close to each other .

you had a good day at work and have fun in your beading class...yes go to the yarn house

love, Jasmine
Have a good night![/quote]
