A few months ago, a friend of mine asked if I could knit a pair of fingerless mittens for her? Being such an avid knitter myself, how can I possibly say no?
Pattern: Koigu Wristers by fkd designs
Yarn: Opal yarn (no idea which Opal yarn as she provided the yarn)
Needles: 2.5 mm
This is the first time I’m using a sock yarn to knit a pair of fingerless mittens and it took me about 10 days to complete this since I’m not a very fast knitter . Anyway, I just hope she’ll like it since she had no idea which pattern I was going to choose.
Yeap. It’s been a hot hot week. It’s 4.30 pm right now and it’s still about 30 degrees Celcius. Think everyone’s melting at the moment. I know I am. It has been quite a fun week. We had our office Kris Kringle last Thursday and I guess who I had to buy for?? My boss!!! Of all people, I had to pick my director. Hmm. Thank God it wasn’t that hard to get a gift for him. Since he’s really into golf, I thought I’d get him something that is golf related. Well, isn’t it much better if I knitted him something that is golf related?
Pattern: Those #@!*% Golf Club Covers by Sarah Wilson
Yarn: 0.45 skeins of Bendigo Woollen Mills Rustic 8 Ply in Aran and 0.45 skeins of Bendigo Woollen Mills Rustic 8 Ply in Green Opal
Needles: 4 mm and 5.5 mm
Now, since the weather has been so utterly hot, it’s really very hard to cook meals in front of a hot stove. So I decided on a quick and simple meals that doesn’t involve much cooking at all.
Nom nom nom .
Not long ago, Tian requested if I could knit him a pair of knee warmers. I have absolutely no idea what are knee warmers and I’ve never even heard of such a thing!! So I asked what does he want them for. Well, he said sometimes when he works during the night out in the bush, it can get very cold, especially his knees, so he’d love to have something to keep his knees warm.
As a dutiful wife, I quickly went to search for a knee warmer pattern. Found it. Print it. Bought yarns. Started knitting. Finished. And of course, I’ve to ask DH to model it for me since this is the first time he requested I knit something for him
Pattern: Phil’s knee warmer by Sarah Peasley
Yarn: 2.2 skeins of Cleckheaton Country 8 Ply

Lastly, since I waited for such a long time on my previous swap package to arrive, my wonderful swap partner decided to knit another present as a gift!! Isn’t she an angel!! Now I finally got a pair of Fetching mittens!! They are gorgeous and they’re pink too!!!
So aren’t I a happy knitter?? Anyway, what should I knit next????????
