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...

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.

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.
