i've combine a green funfur yarn with same yarn i use for rose scarf, the white paton's wool blend yarn. i've let Rosela modelled it for me. it has very good fit on her head because it goes down all the way to her ears, which means i have a bigger head...hehe...

I received yesterday some Christmas gifts from Mimi( a few balls of lavender yarn, white boucle yarn and another multi-colored yarn and a snowman to hang on the door:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting and my room mate, wheng who is trying her basic skills in crochet with the lavender yarn, making a headband.

this one is a cap that i've been knitting for me, which i should finish before christmas day. i'm about half way already with this. i use a patons wool yarn and mixed it together with a green eyelash yarn to give a different look. the wool white yarn looks too boring, my room mates thought it was a creative idea to mixed it with another color.

last night, all my other roommates were trying their hands in crochet. joy, finish a scrunchie, rose and luz are making a headband each. they we're all using the lavender yarn that Mimi sent me.

i think i'm going to shop for some yarn at Busan downtown area if we find some yarnshops there during our city tour this Christmas day and so does my roommate Rose, who was asking me if we can find yarnshops here. i told her we would be shopping for it as i heard from another roommate whose been around the downtown area here and found a few yarnshops.

my roommates went addicted already with their first projects. both rose and joy didn't want to put off their hands from the yarn and hook. we slept at around 12am already just to finish and teach them crochet basics...makes me so tired today in our lecture.

i've let my roommates model it. next to me is Luz, then we wore it in different ways. but the real owner of this scarf is a guy, also a co-trainee here.

i still need to fix my legwarmers. it's too big,any idea how i should fix it without repeating it because i don't want too.

Saturday, December 09, 2006

we're just about to start our lecture today...but i'm still sleepy. i promise i'll post the photos next week. i'm a bit worried about the white scarf i'm making for my friend...i may have to undo it if the yarn won't be enough with the size i made...huhu... i'm going to receive an advance xmas gift from mimi also! she said it will arrive here before xmas. mmm...what could be inside that package? and what project could i be doing with it.

can't wait 4 it Mi. i'm trying to look around the city here also if i could find some yarn. winter clothes are expensive here including scarves and caps ranging from 9,000 WON up.

winter projects

i've made red leg warmers for myself, in red alpakka yarn which i got from one of the swaps before at crochetville. i still have yet to show a photo of it here and i have to make another white scarf for a friend, also a co-trainee here in korea in white alpacca scarf and instead of selling it to him i told him he's going to barter packs of chocolates for me and my other girl roommates and maybe a couple of socks for us too for the winter season here....:)

training is getting intensive as we're being evaluated by our bosses here on how well we do with the lecture and software were using and what we have learned so far.

at the side of my blog now are some photos that i took 2 weekends ago when i went out together with my friends at the small city of Masan, South Korea. We passed along a park and we're quite amazed by those red colored leaves of the tree which we can't find in the Philippines.

and i think this was the last project i did before i left cebu. i haven't posted this, so here it is: it's a cotton knitted hat for sam:

and i've finally finish the knitted capelet with green eyelash. i brought it with me here. i just nee d a ribbon to finish it then take a photo of it.

knitted rose scarf and crocheted mobile pouch

here's the first knitted scarf i've done for a room mate here in Korea. I name it rose as her name is Rosela. In this photo she is just about to go out with her trainors around the town of Masan(where we live). so it was just perfect for the cold weather as winter is almost here:

Still here in Cebu...

hello to all my fellow crafters. I'm still here in Cebu and i wasn't able to post anything for more than a month. I still have to prepare myself my luggage and things that i need to bring for my trip to Korea. I also have been crafting even though i haven't posted anything of what i've done. i wonder what's wrong with my mobile phone when i need to transfer a photo of a pouch bag i made for my sister's friend to the PC, and my PC cannot detect it. i'd really love to post that project because i love the color which is in black and pink. it's still on my phone anyway, and i haven't deleted it yet.

anyway, i have done a lot during the month:

here is a capelet that i'm supposed to sent to Yumi,

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting but now i wonder if i will find the time to mail this to her to Japan, since i still have to find time to prepare myself also. by the way i'm schedule to leave for Korea at the end of the month. this is a knitted capelet in eyelash and mohair yarn, which i got from one of my swaps at crochetville. i've combine two balls of both yarns. i think it is a good idea since 2 balls won't be enough for a capelet. it's still a WIP as of now but almost done.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting this one is also a knitted cap i started for Sam, in bernat cotton tots in blue. this is another of her request.

and this one is a crocheted hobo bag for Chai, pattern from moda dea:Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting i've finish both sides of the bag and just need to finish it's handle and sew together both sides.

Sam's Reggae colored bag

Sam made this using red, yellow, green and black yarn. She wanted to have a slingbag she can use during sunday activities. So here it is:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting this is the back part of the bag.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hostingthis is the front side with the flap in red. i help her put two small pockets at the front in yello and green yarn. she still wants to add a zipper to it after also helping her out put a lining inside it.

A day at the shipyard

This may not be craft related. It was one tedious and a satisfying day when i've finish my job on board this ship, named Miguel Rene which is currently on drydocked in one of the shipyards here in Cebu.
Here are photos i'd like to show during my day spent at the shipyard yesterday:

I finished my job in the morning, which was good because the sun's heat wasn't too scorching yet. I almost forgot taking these photos, which was my first time doing it in my work. Good i had on-the-job trainees together with me who shoot these photos using my K600i.

Saturday, August 12, 2006

At this moment, I've finished a pair of legwarmers for Yumi in the same color as the cap, scarf and wristlets. Here's a photo of it:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I plan to make her either a bolero, capelet or poncho. I'm thinking which one i could finished in two weeks since she will be leaving by 3rd of september. Mostly probably, I'd be able to finish a capelet in that short time i have left.

I hope this will also fit for Yumi since she has skinnier legs than mine and it seems when i fit the legwarmers, it just fits right on my legs.

i wish i could make more garments for Yumi, but since I don't have much time now i would probably send her more handcrafted garments for her 3 year work contract in Japan.

Tuesday, August 08, 2006

i've finished the wrist warmers. Here's one photo of it:

i think it's quite big for yumi, but it will still do for the cold weather in Japan.

I'm loving knitting...

and now i'm doing a pair of wristlets for Yumi. i have done the first of the pair,

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

i still need to sew the seam. i'll show another photo of it when i've done it already.

Here are more photos of my pets, kiwi and Ranjet:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting this is ranjet with me, she is a spitz.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting we all hate kiwi when he goes inside the house because he is very restless and always makes mess. he just brought in a lot of mud on his feet around the house today.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting ranjet is listening to the sound of the cat. she gets really noisy if she sees one and would want to go after it. :)

matching knitted cap

Here's is my first knitted cap that will match the scarf for Yumi.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I showed it to Sam this morning and she modelled it for me. she wants to learn how to knit also. she also love the look of the knitted cap and want me to make her one.

I think all these handmade gifts i'm making adds up to the excitement that Yumi feels when she will be going to Japan. right now i'm doing a matching pair of wristlets for the cap and scarf. :)

Also i want to show this scarf and hat set from my SP knicknac. It's being modelled by Sam too.

Birthday Hat

Here's a hat I made for Chai, a dentist friend serving in the same community I'm in (Singles for Christ). I gave it to her several days before her birthday. the color is in marroon. The color just matches her very well. It is a brimmed hat, althought it may not be very clear here because Chai folded or rolled the end of the hat.

I made up my own pattern with this hat, putting some popcorn stitches in a row then followed with v-stitch, and sc rows. Isn't the owner just as adorable as the hat?!
