A Prayer and GYK

I assume that most of you have already heard about the shooting at Virginia Tech University. I was certainly shaken up to hear of the horrific incident that left so many people dead and dozens wounded.

I cannot begin to understand what the families of the victims are going through right now. So I shall not say more.

Let's all send out a prayer asking God to give strength and support to the families and friends of the victims of this tragic incident. Thank you.


I believe that most of you might have seen this:

Good Yarn Karma is the brainchild of Donyale, Jae and Nora. They came up with the brilliant idea of a place to give away or swap yarn that you may have stewing in your stash cupboard, making friends with dust bunnies.

It's simple enough. Got some yarn you know you'll never use? Swap it or give it away to a loving home. Magazine, knitting notions, fiber....basically anything knitty.....Good Yarn Karma will help you clear your stash for new stuff ;o)

To find out more, click on the button =) Go on y'all get yourself some good karma.

My very first swap resulted in me receiving these gorgeous goodies from Kimberly.

Speaking of goodies, I received three gorgeous skeins of Knitpicks Gloss in Black from Mira as a resolution of two rather funny bets that we had! Thanks chica.

It's so lovely. Excuse the crappy picture. Batteries did a good number on me.

I know I'm rather late to jump on the bandwagon, but after much contemplation I got this off of Amazon for a steal! The lovely and extremely talented Kitman brought it over to me and boy was I surprised at the thickness of the book. I still haven't got the time to go through it but it seems vibrant and fun.

That's all for now. Happy Knitting everyone.

I just realised its been so long since I updated my blog. Time flew by so fast that it still feels like only yesterday I came back from my weekend getaway to Cameron Highlands.
It's been quite some time since my brother left as well =( I miss him. He's the best brother anyone could EVER ask for.

I sent out the FBS and DFS to my mom and aunt. Managed to snap a few pics before it was sent off. I'm also happy to say that they love it.

Blocking time

Miles of Flower Baskets...

A rather hurried picture of the DFS, just minutes before it was mailed off. The pink thing you see is
Mira's make-your-car-smell-nice thingee.

I am currently out of things to knit. Seriously. I have two balls of the cutest boucle yarn, one lavender and one baby blue, its cotton and feels so soft. I have absolutely no clue as to what on earth to knit with it! Anyone with suggestions on what to knit? I was think perhaps a face cloth, tiny towels or an eyemask...etc...I just have a feeling that knitting it up would produce a terrycloth, towel-like fabric. Absolutely any ideas, links, etc...would be highly appreciated.

Has anyone had a problem with blogger lately? I have, just a few minutes ago I logged into blogger and the dashboard indicated that there were some unmoderated comments, which was strange since all comments that are posted get routed through email to me for moderation.

Anybody know how to fix this leak in Blogger? Do let me know.
