a new project: Red Kite

So I finished Abbie's Tunic last month, and so happy with the result, it's my very first wearable, and so happy with it:please: can't stress that enough! lol, although I need to practice more on my seaming techniques though...

I also casted-on a pullover this time it's eldest DD. The pattern is from The Rowan Story Book of Little Knits, but before I go on about this new project here is the photo the finished Tunic.

Project Details
Project Name: Abbie's Tunic
Source Pattern: Debbie Bliss Knitting Workshop Workbook
Pattern Name: Child's V-Neck Tunic
Materials Used:
Yarn: Nevada Athleta (SportWeight)(cream and bluish gray)
Needles: 2.75mm and 3.75mm straight needles
Date Started: April 15, 2009
Date Finished: July 06, 2009

I've added a monogram which is my daughter's initial. The tunic kinda big on her but I'm sure by fall or winter this year, it will fit her much better.

Now on to the next project - I called this red kite, i just love the color and and the little lace edge on it.

The pattern called for an Aran weight yarn, but instead I used a sport-weight yarn and smaller needles. So you can just imagine the modification I did. I did some math magic to determine how much I needed to cast on, and with the help of some of my knitter friends I was able to finish the back part. I am almost finished with the front, now I'm on the arm hole shaping, can't wait to see this done - target date is at the end of August.

I will then cast-on a vest for my DH... hope he'll like the pattern I'm going to use.

And here is the yarn I used for this project, wind it up using my yarn winder which btw is one the most wonderful thing that I purchased when I was in Manila. I so love my yarn winder

And with all these projects, my youngest is now demanding to make her another pullover with purple or fushia color! such a demanding child she is gatai ...

I'm still thinking of knitting some scarves for my badminton friends, as a Christmas gift.. now I' wonder if I can still be able to do that....
