What I've Been Up To?

Alhamdulillah.. setelah beberapa hari meninggalkan web ni, akhirnya ada juga peluang mau post entry malam ni xD

Alhamdulillah.. segala puji hanya untuk Allah.

Lately, I’ve been busy with works. There were a lots of work that need to be done and finished by this week, actually by today. So, all my to-do-lists had to be delayed for some days.

I have so many orders thatΒ  I need to finish as soon as possible.. but honestly, time never seems to be enough for me πŸ™ In addition, I need to start learning to write down all of the order lists one by one so I can track my WIP. Especially for my first online customer, I will do my best to finish the sweaters she requested by the end of April or as late as middle of May. I am really sorry… and really hope she can wait πŸ™‚

Here is my latest project:

The left one is another sunny hat for 2 years old baby and on the right side is the sweater that my colleague had requested since last year, and also for 2 years old baby girl .. So by hook or by crook, I have to finish this sweater by this weekend. She chose pink colour for her 11 months baby girl xD oh, did i mentioned to you? That she is sooooooo cute!! πŸ˜€ If you want to see her picture, click here πŸ™‚

Closer view of my future sweater raglan!

This is new yarns that me and my mom bought from a small shop in Putatan πŸ˜€ Can you guess what brand is this? This is Nona brand (FINALLY!!) found it in KK. So, KK-s, if you want to look for Nona brand, go to Putatan k? Eh.. however, I forgot the shop name, but I do remember it is just next to a bookshop ( I guess..)

This yarn somehow, I can say, that the quality is above Sakura and Minlon. Just, the not-best-part is that these yarns only consist one type of thickness, which is i think .. is more to fingering yarn type. But they do have a lot of beautiful colours to choose πŸ™‚ Hoo… rambang mata! So, the grey+maroon colour is to make a kopiah that will be crocheted by my mom for my colleague.

This one is a flower hair clip that is also crocheted by my mom πŸ˜€ Looks like a grape isn’t it? But this is a flower..

Hehe… paksa my sis to be my model again xD

This hairclip is for SelL.

Oh yes…

Coming weekend project.. :)

Alhamdulillah.. yay.. today is Friday. And again I loooovveee Friday! xD Heee….

Alhamdulillah, my colleague love the cable tassel hat. And She requested another hat.. (wah.. i am happy because she trust me in this. This is her 4th order..) thank you kak xD for the latest request, she wanted me to crochet a kopiah..Β  this will be my first time to do kopiah.. let’s see how it will be πŸ˜›

But however, I need to put that aside first, because.. I have another pending request to make, which is, a sweater baby for my best colleague who is really kind to me πŸ™‚ She lend me her camera so I can take better pictures of my projects.Β  As soon as I am done with it, I will turn the camera back to her with 10000xxxx million thank you πŸ˜€ Alhamdulillah..

So my next project will be this:

sooo cute kan.. bunny tu? hehehe…

And there came more requests.. and I will try my best to handle them one by one… Besides, I need to concentrate with work too.. so really need to manage my time wisely. Speaking of which, (jum cakap malay pula :P) pagi tadi, sebelum turun ke Pejabat..Β  I always like to open Oasis channel and watch the episodes of Pintu Taubat. Which, this morning episode, really caught my heart and mind. Episod ni cerita tentang berniaga. Cik A ini berniaga gerai makanan.. dan cik B juga berniaga gerai makanan.. kedai sebelah menyebelah..Β  sama-sama cari rezeki, sama-sama cuba tarik hati pelanggan.. however, the sad thing is.. the cik A is not running her gerai makan secara sihat.Β  She always try to eliminateΒ  her pesaing in -a way- that we shouldn’t do, so poor cik B, finally she quit her business because of illness…

hmm tapi saya tidak sempat habiskan menonton cerita ni…… jadi tidak dapat saya buat konklusinya..

but, it did made me think .. like.. am I doing my best in my job at office? am I giving good service to customers? Will I be like Cik A or Cik B or… ?

Alhamdulillah.. selama lebih kurang 8 bulan Da’Knit telah menguruskan kedai benang kait yarnsonlineshop.com,Β  I faced many kind of things that really helped me to grow better and learn the selok-belok of business, walaupun sangat kecil business ini.. tetapi ianya banyak membantu untuk saya melihat perkara-perkara yang saya tak pernah tahu sebelum ini. I am sure, everyone who also running an online business (yup.. we are talking about online business here) feels the same too. Semua masing-masing, Allah telahpun tetapkan rezekinya..Β  My employer always said to me, she believes in Allah’s rezeki.. no matter how you are in tight, or in luxury.. everyone has their own rezeki..Β  πŸ™‚

I also learnt new thingsΒ  from people I know and met online, via email, via chats, kindly sharing things, being open and being honest about what they see and feel towards our tiny store and service.Β  I received many kinds of emails, asking me about anything that relates to knitting or crocheting, and I will try to answer as best as I can based on the small experiences I have. So whatever opinions, complaints we received, we do our best to fulfill what they need as long as it is still in our hand, insyaAllah.

This makes me think.. last time, there were two customers, who received their parcels late than the estimate date. So we keep emailing each other, keep updating each other how, and in the same time,Β  I keep contacting my supplier, and try to find the best solution that will satisfy all the parties. Alhamdulillah.. I am very happy to know that after a while, both parcels finally arrived safely. And really Da’Knit ucapkan terima kasih kepada pelanggan yang memahami dan bersabar tentang peristiwa lambat ini ya! Sangat menghargainya.. kerana tanpa anda, Da’Knit is nothing πŸ™‚

This is why I always need to be informedΒ  if you received your item my dear customers.. so we will know if they safely arrive to you.Β  And also, I am glad that everyone is always being kind to Da’Knit. No matter how fast and late they received their parcels, I am so happy to deal with all of you, who always being friendly to me.

However, late delivery happens very seldom. Oh ya.. sometimes, yang buat lambat shipping ni sebab kastam.. barangan yang datang dari luar negara, akan dikastam-kan dahulu dan proses ini mengambil masa juga.. lebih kurang 3-5 hari.. lepas tu, bila dah lepas.. then untuk pos ke alamat masing-masing.. ambil masa lagi.. 3-5 hari.. sebenarnya barang masuk Malaysia cuma ambil masa 3-7 hari .. dan sometimes shipping yang lebih lambat berlaku disebabkan pihak shipper guna ground (melalui darat)..(which takes 3 weeks to arrive to Malaysia :O )

Oh .. but, do not worry cause.. most of products offered here, they are all shipped via air mail πŸ™‚ so insyaAllah.. it will not take that much long to arrive.. unless.. something happened because of Malaysia post service but not from ours, in case, if its happened because of us.. we will do ourΒ  best to fix them.

Ahhh.. I have to start my new sweater project.. Wish me luck ya πŸ™‚

Thank you so much again for hopping by! And thank you so much for always stopping by at Da’Knit. InsyaAllah.. apa-apa yang menarik saya jumpa relates to knitting dan crochet, I will share them.

Da’Knit juga ingin mengambil kesempatan.. untuk mengucapkan terima kasih dari hati.. kepada semua pelanggan, pengunjung Da’Knit yang sentiasa mempercayai Da’Knit dalam urusan jual beli ini. Without you guys, Da’Knit will not be here today! Hehe.. feeling pula πŸ˜›

And because of this too.. I met many new friends, and even my customers are my friends too πŸ™‚Β  so.. so please do not hesitate to email me if you have questions or inquiries, ya! We will do our best to answer you as soon as possible within 24 hours.

Assalamualaikum..

May Allah swt bless us all! Amin..

 

 

Experimenting…

Since I got my new yarns today.. I couldn’t resist the desire (really tempted) to try this Degas Cotton. As my first time trying this 100% mercerized cotton, surely it gives different feelings xD

Quickly I grabbed my hook and knitting needles to start a small project..

Tada! A small button flower..

Let’s look with closer view

And.. for knitting, I just tried a simple knit and purl to see the result:

Knit and purl

So.. here areΒ  my conclusions:

1. This cotton does feels good to work with both crochet and knitting.

2. If you like to crochet this cotton, it is suitable for making accessories such as bags, flowers, doilies (alas meja), hat, dishcloths..

3. If you like to knit this cotton, you can knit a simple top/summer top, bags, flowers, dishcloths, simple hat.

Anyone interested to try this cotton yarn for a small project? πŸ™‚

Feel free to check out this yarn at http://aheys.com/mengait/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=92

If you wish to have in a bulk, you can always find them in yarnsonlineshop.com under Yarns For Summer category.

Any inquiries, please do not hesitate to email me.

Alhamdulillah for a good day! :)

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim..

Alhamdulillah.. akhirnya projek saya siap juga…
What a nice colour combination right? πŸ™‚

and here is my project (without model..need my lil sis right now..)

Yay! Another tassle hat.. but this time with cable, very easy to knit.. any one can do too! xD

Hopefully my colleague will like this hat for her daughter. InsyaAllah.

What do you think? πŸ™‚

And.. what makes me more happy today is my yarns finally arrived today too (and also alhamdulillah.. customers parcels arrived safely too.. in same day πŸ˜€ Thank you so much dear friends.. let’s get crazyknit tonight πŸ˜‰ )

Aren’t they so yummy? They are Soft Merino, Demet Wool, Pink Bulky and Degas Cotton. Really lovely.. I will share half of them with anyone who interested to purchase these yarns. So please check it out soon at our Mengait Tools Store for these yarns ok? Every purchase is free shipping πŸ™‚

I am very sorry for short post. Really feel tired today πŸ™

Wish I can share some more stories about knitting/crocheting.. insyaAllah.. soon!

Thanks for hopping by πŸ™‚

May Allah swt bless us all.

Happy knitting/crocheting dear friends..
