Although little K hasn’t show any interests to grab anything, I always feel very insecure to have her in the same room with those long sharp knitting needles, so I put my needles away after I finished the vest. It is much more comfortable to work with the large plastic crochet hooks with little K in my arms. (Maybe now I have good excuses to get a whole set of those interchangeable circulars.)

It was the coldest week here since I moved here. It was quite an active week for me, partly because of Bec’s short visit to town. She came back for her final defense and left 2 days after. The defense was no doubt successful. Accordingly, she’s got a big title now. I cannot find any excuses not to prepare something for this important event. I couldn’t decided until the week is finally approaching, when I still had at least 3 potential projects in front of me, not mentioning the ones being withdrew earlier. (Bec, I assure you that you don’t want to know what kind of weird things used to pop up in my mind.) Then, time constraint became an issue, which made the selection much simpler. *shy*Anyway, congratulations, Bec!

When it comes to accessories, I usually go for bracelet, or necklace in some rare cases. I don’t wear earrings at all and hate to duplicate things. Both prevent me from make earrings for a long time. I finally got motivated when I found out one of my friends (LH, in case someone might know her) only has one piercing. The pattern was pretty random. I can see myself making a lot of these in the future if there are more customers….:D

Here’s the picture of the scrunchie I finished …… hmm …… in July. It could be a bad sigh that I am getting lazier and lazier and I barely have new things to show, but it could also be a good sign of a possible return. We’ll see.
p.s. I have got my first moo mini-cards and I love them.

I got my first pair of shining embroidery scissors from Metz back in February. Since then, I’ve been worried about the cute sharp tips being damaged under all kinds of circumstances, not to mention things are falling off my desks almost everyday. I figured it would be nice if the scissors, especially the sharp tips, are better protected. And that is the source of this crochet project.

When holi came to my place the other day, she saw the bunch of doilies I put by the window and said she liked it. Immediately I promised her to make her one if she wanted. When I asked her for more specifications, she picked the blue shaded thread from the ones I showed her but gave me total freedom to choose the pattern.

It’s always delightful to use it to crochet some trivial pieces in the sun while listening to Q92 if there’s no more important/urgent things to do. My favorite crochet hook was always the smallest one I had, a 1-mm shining one which I got in a dollar store in Montreal. The type of threads doesn’t matter so much, but the sunshine is critical. Summer suddenly showed up here right after the bad wet winter reluctantly left. Hopefully the sunshine is able to keep me away from blog hibernation.
