I just channelled my energies to something else.
Another piece of garment that I just worked towards the finishing line earlier this week.
This is made from Katia Bamboo, a yarn so soft -- I couldn't resist rubbing against my skin every time I pick it up!
And of course, in case you think the lace is very showy, it really isn't. Here's how the garment looks when it's worn.
The extremely fitted silhouette meant that I could get away with just under 4 balls of yarn. With some to spare...in fact, more than half a ball leftover. So I did what a gal would do....
Joined a group that meets up to crochet hats for preemie babies in Singapore's hospitals. How awesome is that! Leena & the other ladies are also thinking of doing their bit also. [*Smacks* in the forehead -- Joanne is a KKH staff!]
And speaking of babies, my niece *finally* got to wear that Lachlann pants set that I test knitted for Figheadh.com.
My sis would only allow Ms P to wear the pants but not the cardi as she heats up really easily when she's sitting in the stroller. That's some cute pants! I should knit her a dress for her 1st birthday since that's coming up really soon!
PS. *Wo de* -- is the phonetic translation of "mine" in Chinese.
PPS. Meetup photos coming up in the next blog post.
