Benang Kait

1618522_694535183903329_1534576941_n

Saya kerap menerima email yang bertanyakan tentang jenis-jenis benang kait yang ada dan saya rasa sangat senang membantu mereka mendapatkan jawapan untuk soalan mereka.

Satu perkara yang sering saya tekankan ialah “Jangan Takut Untuk Mencuba”. Mencuba pelbagai jenis benang kait yang ada di pasaran merupakan salah satu cara yang paling baik untuk anda tentukan kelebihan dan kekurangan terhadap benang kait tersebut dan kesesuaiannya terhadap projek anda.

Saya sendiri amat suka mencuba pelbagai jenis benang dari yang paling mahal sehinggalah yang paling murah bagi melihat kualiti dan kelebihannya. Sememangnya setiap benang yang sudah saya cuba dan kait ini mempunyai pro dan cons masing-masing. Disini, anda perlu bijak menentukan bajet anda supaya pembaziran tidak berlaku.

Apa yang sering kali saya perhatikan ialah “”andaian”” menjadikan kita takut untuk mencuba sesuatu jenis benang kait sama ada mahal ataupun murah walaupun tidak pernah kita cuba. Bagi saya, saya tidak akan menerima “‘andaian”” selagi tidak mencubanya, bukan setakat touch and feel sahaja tetapi saya pasti akan hasilkan sebuah projek kecil ataupun besar bagi melihat hasilnya sama ada ia sesuai ataupun tidak untuk projek yang ingin saya kait.

Tahukah anda, setiap benang kait yang dihasilkan walaupun diperbuat daripada jenis fiber yang sama, sama ada ianya adalah wool, acrylic, cotton, bamboo, linen dan pelbagai lagi, hasil tekstur adalah sangat berbeza dari satu jenis ke satu jenis yang lain seperti dari jenis yang paling keras sehinggalah jenis yang paling lembut.

Setiap ketebalan dan cara pintalan benang kait tersebut juga sangat mempengaruhi hasil kait kita. Cara mengait dan teknik stitch yang digunapakai juga amat memberi kesan terhadap hasil kait dan projek. Projek yang melibatkan cable stitch dan ribbing menjadikan projek kita lebih tebal manakala projek yang dihasilkan secara lace dan loose memberikan efek lembut terhadap projek kita walau apa pun jenis benang kait yang digunakan. Selain itu, peranan ‘blocking’ amat memberikan kesan yang mendalam terhadap hasil akhir projek dimana ianya akan menjadikan projek anda ebih lumayan dan eksklusif.

Walau bagaimanapun, pilihan yang terbaik adalah bermula di tangan kita. Sama ada mahal ataupun murah sesuatu benang kait tersebut, anda perlu bijak membuat pilihan bagi mendapatkan kepuasan anda dalam menghasilkan projek kait anda. Tidak semua projek sesuai digunakan dengan benang kait yang sama disebabkan perbezaan ketebalan, berat dan pintalan mempengaruhi projek kita. Bukan kerana ia mahal ataupun murah.

Di harap artikel pendek di pagi ini dapat membantu anda sedikit sebanyak untuk membuat pilihan dalam pemilihan benang kait yang untuk sesuatu projek anda.

4 hours Daisy Crochet Booties :)

1525101_256672914515199_1123057846_n It was Thursday 27 March 2014 I received a message from a first time customer, asking me if I can make a pair of booties before 30 March 2014. In the meantime, I still have ongoing work in progress that I need to complete as well. I put a deep thought about this before agreed to her request. Not that it was difficult to make but the time limit was not in my favor. However after a long talk and discussion as she looks very determine, so I decide to step in and take out the challenge.

As how I thought! I felt no regret at all. I managed to complete the booties before 30 March 2014 and never have I felt this much satisfied towards my own crocheted booties before as how I felt right now after seeing these cute little booties. What a great match, what a nice shape and how neat it is! Oh yes, I am very proud to see my own progress. Alhamdulillah. As wise man said, practice makes perfect <3

So, a little advice to my crocheter/knitter friends, never ever give up and have confident!

Mission accomplished!

Love handmade,

Assalamualaikum and good morning!

It’s great to finally get to sit back and updating this blog after a while. it’s now school holiday so more free time to do something i have planned.

Alright, lets see what i’ve been up too since few weeks ago.

Above picture is a sweater for my FB friend who just delivered a baby boy 🙂 I made it a bit bigger than newborn size. Always I love working with Alize Sekerim Bebe Batik (available at www.daknit.com). It is one of my most favourite yarns.

I have mentioned this one in my previous post. Oh momy, I love how it turns out at the end. I have made a heavy modification here from the original pattern (Silver Cardigan).  It’s quite big for my daughter, Jasmin. I used Nako Hosgeldin, it is very very soft and drapes beautifully. I can say that this is the most softest yarns we have in store currently. I totally fall in love with Hosgeldin and now also become my most favourite yarns too.

This will be a shawl soon. It’s a request by one of my colleague that I just recently knew during the SPM days. She wants it by 13th so I hope to finish it by 12th. The stitch is very simple. I found the pattern in ravelry (again). if you would like to try this out, search out for shawl v-stitch ok 🙂

This hat is also for my FB friend. I made a very simple baby beanie and attach a pom pom to make it look more attractive. The yarn is also very soft.

And lastly, this one is our customer’s pre order yarns. Alhamdulillah they finally arrived safely. It’s Nako Saten, Alize Sekerim and Nako Vals (Nako vals is coming soon!)

Alright, I better stop now and will write again soon. Thank you for hopping by and May Allah swt bless us all. Amin..
