This scarf was originally a shrug :
I didn't like the pattern because it does not bring out the beauty of the yarn.
Oops! Did I say beauty? I know it is not the most beautiful yarn, but at least it is my own hand-dyed and hand spun yarn :) I unravelled the project and turned it to this :
Finally, I have found this pretty fan bookmark pattern from Crochetroo. It just make the colours of the forest popped out! Oh, I have named my yarn, Forest. Does it look like the colours of the forest?
I wanted a denser and bigger scarf, so I have made the following modifications :
Row 1 of each fan : 14 dc in the loop work
Row 3 of each fan : 1 sc 3 ch 1 sc for the picot edge
I am very happy that it turned out well :)

I was talking to my friend Denise two weeks back and I found out that her birthday was coming. Oh no! I didn't have any present for her! Ideas were going through my mind but I don't have enough time for a decent project. I was flipping through Crochet! May 2009 issue and found this lovely belt.
I met her in Kuala Lumpur during the school holidays and presented her with this gift. Well, just a little last minute gift! I didn't have her measurement but I guessed a S size would be appropriate. Gosh! I was so glad when Denise told me that it fitted her perfectly. These two photos of the belt worn in two different styles were taken by her 6 year old daughter,Celestine. Clever girl!
I think Denise looks cute too!
