Lavender Cardigan

My Lavender Cardigan is finally posted on This project was left in my cabinet for a long time due to other projects that need to be finished first. Can't even remember when I started this project. I intend to wear it for a wedding dinner. The yarn has a shimmering effect and I love the soft colour of Lavender. Hope that it will be appropriate for the occasion. Initially I thought the neckline will be perfect but it turn out to be too low. So I bought a lacy slip to go with it.

Started : June 2008
Finished : September 2008

Blue Waves

This is Xin Yee. She is 10 years old and very chubby. Can you see her neck?
Nothing right?:) I told her to take care of her weight. She need to loose some weight. Don't wait until she is as fat as aunty Pat Her mother Low completed the Blue Waves in September 2008. It is meant for Xin Yee's sister but modelled by her. It is a very simple top and quick to knit project. It took her one week to complete. Her sister has received many nice compliments on her new top.
