Divide 38 Sts into two sections (18-18), knit all stitches using magic loop technique until your desired length or at least about 30 rows.

7 January 2013 – :) Buku dan benang..

Assalamualaikum.. selamat malam, apa khabar semua? Saya doakan semoga tahun baru ini merupakan tahun yang lebih baik daripada tahun-tahun sebelumnya amin amin amin ya rabbal’alamin..  Pertama kali, saya ingin ucapkan terima kasih kerana anda masih sudi lagi bersinggah ke blog yang sudah pun bersawang ini.

2012 merupakan tahun yang mencabar dan memberikan kenangan manis buat saya 🙂 Ini kerana pada tahun 2012 saya bergelar sebagai seorang ibu. Sangat bermakna buat saya, masyaAllah.. dan saya berdoa semoga Allah menjadikan saya, suami, anak-anak dan keluarga semuanya dikalangan orang-orang yang beriman.. amin, amin amin ya rabbal’alamin..

Saya ingin  berkongsi aktiviti terbaru.. apa lagi kalau bukan mengait 🙂 yup.. mengait merupakan hobi yang sukar sekali dikikis.. duit pun terkikis olehnya hihihi.. tak adalah saya gurau aja 🙂

Hari ni, benang yang saya beli dua hari lalu, telah pun sampai dengan selamatnya alhamdulillah. Sejujurnya, saya sudah begitu lama ingin merasa kait benang ni 🙂 dan akhirnya, saya dapatkan juga 2 buku agar tidaklah kempunan merasa.. 🙂 jom tengok gambar..

Caron Simply Soft.. oh ya memang lembut! Suami saya pun kata – soft – 🙂 akhirnya merasa lah juga pegang benang ni.. warnanya pula mmg dah lama plan nak beli match seperti di gambar. insyaAllah akan cuba usahakan untuk di kait. Sayang benang kalau tak kait.. sebab itu, azam baru saya 2013, saya akan pastikan setiap benang yang dibeli akan digunakan sebaiknya… memang sayangggg sangat mau guna.. tetapi lagi sayang kalau tak kait 🙂 kalau kait nampak lagi hasilnya kan ? xD

Yapp… semalam saya print banyak pattern.. especially yang purchased punya.. minta tolong husband -binding-kan. Dan memang puas hati 🙂 Terima kasih canim!

Tabiat saya yang paaaling saya tidak suka ialah print dan simpan.. saya sangat suka print pattern.. apabila sudah dicetak, saya pasti akan simpan.. kemudian.. tidak lama selepas itu, bila nak cari semula.. entah ke mana perginya.. selalunya kertas-kertas ni akan hilang apabila saya mengemas rumah.

Maka azam baru 2013.. asal sahaja saya print, saya akan print banyak-banyak sekali dan akan terus bukukan.. Hihi.. husband ada belikan fail juga untuk simpan pattern-pattern yang telah dicetak.. saya tinggalkan di kedai untuk memudahkan pelanggan yang inginkan pattern.

Ini adalah di antara koleksi terbaru saya sepanjang 2012.. I love them all 🙂 Ada banyak pattern-pattern yang mudah untuk di kait.. dan semua buku ini adalah buku crochet.

Benang lagi! 🙂 Benang yang ditukar suka sama suka dengan kak Marlyna.. oh saya memang sukaaaa sangat dengan benang Uptown Universal.. sangat lembut.. ingat tak pada entri sebelum ni, saya pernah kongsikan gambar benang dari jenama yang sama?

Saya jatuh hati sangat-sangat dengan benang ni.. bila di kait, feelnya seakan-akan mengait benang Alize Sekerim Bebe Batik 🙂  Setelah itu, saya mencari lagi di tempat yang selalu saya beli tetapi dah tak ada.. alhamdulillah akhirnya dapat juga even sebuku 🙂 Yang Red Heart itu pun benang baby dan sangat lembut sekali.. kedua-dua jenis benang ini ialah benang USA. Saya masih memikirkan projek yang sesuai dikait menggunakan benang di atas..hihi tapi tahu tak anda? Kebanyakkan benang-benang import USA adalah benang Made in Turkey 😉

Made in Turkey, and yes, I love Turkish Yarns so much <3 You should have a try too 😉

Alhamdulillah.. selesai menulis blog hari ni.. mata saya pun dah tertutup separuh.. esok nak kerja.. jadi elok tidur awal sikit 🙂

Oh ya.. sebelum saya mengundur diri.. agak terkejut melihat visitor hari ini.

wahh.. siapakah gerangan yang sudi melawat Da’Knit sehingga 2365 visits? hihihi.. Bot google kot 😛
Oklah..
Selamat malam semua.. semoga malam ni anda bermimpi yang indah, insyaAllah..
Apa-apa pun, thank you so much for dropping by…

May Allah swt bless us all..amin.

First Attempt Kopiah for Mr. Hubby! n' chit chat again.

Mr.Hubby yang serius 😮

Alhamdulillah..  finally for the first time, I completed a kopiah 😀 So, this kopiah I dedicated it to my husband. Following a pattern found in the internet, but modified it after I started to feel lazy to read the instructions. So, starting from the middle part until the band.. no more following the pattern!

Huhhh… Yup.. sempat juga saya siapkan kopiah ni dalam masa lebih kurang 3 jam sewaktu menunggu di klinik. Oh ya.. juga hari ni merupakan kali kedua ujian air gula di ambil dan pemeriksaan untuk tekanan darah. Alhamdulillah, keputusannya, syukur pada Allah, semuanya normal. Tinggal ujian gula lagi yang perlu di ketahui. Mudah-mudahan keputusannya juga normal seperti biasa. InsyaAllah.. aduhhh berdebar-debar menantikan keputusan. Rupanya banyak juga dugaan yang perlu dihadapi sepanjang pregnant kan. Saya hanya mampu berusaha, berdoa dan bertawakkal pada Allah agar dipermudahkan dan diberikan kesihatan yang baik sepanjang beberapa bulan yang amat istimewa ini.

Alhamdulillah juga, sekarang musim sekolah, dapat juga berehat disamping mengait benda-benda yang simple simple. Walaupun masih ada tugasan sekolah yang perlu disiapkan 🙁 oh Allah. Fening.. fening!!

So right now, I am still trying my best to finish all the things I started before my due. The baby sweater, the ripple shawl, the baby hat and socks, and the SWAP project with my friend Jenny. Ay… ay…ay Captain! Will do my best to complete them all insyaAllah.. insyaAllah.. insyaAllah.. wah banyaknya insyaAllah..

Dear friends, thank you again so much for hopping by to my humble blog 🙂 Hopefully insyaAllah I can post more new projects of mine here and share them all with you.

Oh and.. if you need the kopiah pattern, you can find it in this link: http://fruitfulfusion.blogspot.com/2009/12/kufee-hat-pattern.html
May Allah swt bless us all.. Semoga Allah permudahkan segala urusan kita dunia dan akhirat, diberikan kesihatan yang baik dan dianugerahkan dengan rezeki yang halal dan mellimpah ruah insyaAllah.

Lawati kedai kami di http://www.daknit.com ataupun di Wisma Muis. Selamat datang! 😀

 

Special Gift from a Special Friend :)

Alhamdulillah… received this yesterday 🙂
This is a special gift by Daphne Lim, a sweet friend I met in the Facebook. Oh Daphne.. this baby vest is really so totally cuteeeee!!! Ahhhhh….  I feel so touch 🙂

May God bless you always, my dear sweet friend! Hugs and kisses 🙂

Oh and.. thank you again so much too for the small gift, the Punto Yarn! Eeeee… I LIKEEE!!! xD

WOW! hehehe.. not as the picture.. Only one ball of yarn but it means much to me 🙂 The colour is the same as above ( I was so tired to snap a picture.. that had to borrow the picture  :P)

Thank  you for hopping by! Till neexxxxttt time..!!
May Allah swt bless us all.

Simple thing always lovely!

Lately, I’ve been playing with hooks more than my needles.. I guess, I just got addicted with the way how fast you can finish one project with crochet.. Knitting is always my favourite however, it’s not fair to leave out crochet as a hobby too. So I’ve been surfing around, gathering more crochet patterns to put into my collections, and then, I found this very lovely slipper from ZoomYummy.Com. Thank you so much for sharing 🙂

The tutorial is very clear, easy to be understood and so easy to make! For the first time, I took the challenge to crochet something that I never done yet before, this cute simple slipper! 🙂 Well.. since it’s my first time and just some trial and error, don’t ask me where is the other half :P. Because I’m so excited, I couldn’t wait to show it to you! ( Will move to second slipper insyaAllah.. soon!)

Tada!! My first slipper xD yay!! Alhamdulillah.. Oh yes, this rakuraku really feel good to be held. However, in my opinions, the clover comfort hook and rakuraku do give me the same feeling while crochet 😛 Both are comfortable and pain-relief if you are a core-crocheter. Oh and.. isn’t the yarn looks yummy?? xD This yarns was a swapped with kak Aisyah Helga. I really love this yarn so much because of the texture feel so like a fabric though the fiber was a 100% acrylic. This yarn is from ice yarns, summer rose. Unfortunately, there is no stock for this colour anymore.. 🙁 sob…

Oh and.. good news for every hooks lovers, Da’Knit Online Store had been updated with new stocks. Don’t miss out our hot items, the 6 hooks per set with handle and sweet colour. They are light and comfortable to use for long hours. Also, there will be a free gifts for the first 5 buyers of this hook. So Hurry Up! 🙂

Don’t forget to visit us xD anything, don’t be hesitate to email us at sindarery@gmail.com or at facebook.com/daknit

Soon, I’m going to start back with my customer’s order. Need to knit it fast (again and again and again hehe..) Kak Pari Pari.. kalau ada apa2.. email saya ya 🙂 terima kasih di atas order akak sekali lagi..alhamdulillah..

Thank you for hopping by! May Allah swt bless us all. Thank you and have a good night!
