Row 8: P all sts

(By adding 1 Sts every right side row before and after K2 with yarn over as how Row 7, continue knitting in this manner by increasing 8 Sts on the right side, and purl all stitches on the wrong side, until you get 180 sts as total before dividing for sleeves – As total, you will get 32 rows from cast on.

Dividing for sleeves:
Row 33: K29, move the next 36 stitches for sleeves onto stitch holder, continue knitting 50 sts, again move the next 36 sts for second sleeves onto stitch holder, knit the next last 29 sts.   Turn, Purl all stitches..

 

Body (you will have 108 stitches, 6 waves):

Sleeves (using Magic Loop Technique) x make 2 ( You may place a marker to point your start at the beginning of your row):
Pick up 1 Sts under armhole, move all 36 Sts to needles, pick up another 1 Sts under armhole, you will have 38 sts as total. 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. Then, on the last round, PURL all the stitches, then Bind Off. This is to ensure that the sleeve doesn’t roll up. Repeat for second sleeve.

Slow progress.. but having fun making it :D

Assalamualaikum 🙂 Gambar di atas Ini adalah work in progress yang terbaru saya. Rasa sungguh lama nak siapkan. Yang dalam gambar ni baru nak siap bahagian skirt, dalam 90%. Lepas tu akan kait bahagian sleeves dan baru masuk body.. ohh bilalah nak siap..  betul-betul rasa slow sangat mengait kali ni.. especially tangan pun rasa sakit sejak 2-3 bulan lalu mungkin effect dari pregnancy.. mudah-mudahan Allah berikan saya peluang siapkan dress ni sebelum due.. insyaAllah. 🙂

Dan lagi.. semoga parcel2 saya dari USA akan sampai dengan selamatnya.. amin amin amin ya rabbal’alamin.. Harap kawan-kawan dan para pelanggan yang sangat dihargai oleh daknit  turut sama doakan agar barangan ni sampai dengan selamatnya.

Terima kasih juga saya ucapkan kepada designer pattern baby dress ni.. memang sangat jatuh cinta dengan dress ni. InsyaAllah akan update perkembangannya.

Terima kasih sudi singgah ke daknit 🙂

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.
