Back On Track

Thanks for everyone concern, the wrap lace cardi, I have frog it and reknit again. Both the front is completed. One side even block already and the other is on the blocking board now. I have more time to knit this week as the "BOSS" is not around. As the chinese says, "I've got time to snake around".

Yesterday, while I was browsing at the newstand in my office block I found a knitting magazine name "Knit It". Nothing interesting about this magazine but I'm just hooked to the shrug on the cover page and of course I can't resist the price of the magazine. I'm wondering whether they have the wrong price tag because I got it for only RM9.00. For me, I think is kinda of cheap for an international magazine. I'm clueless on this as I saw the price on the cover stated USD5.99 so it could not be possible that this magazine will cost RM9.00 per copy. Well, nevermind about that.

Another knitting book I got during the Chinese New Year holiday. Its a chinese knitting book (I think originated from Taiwan). There are a few design in this books that attracts me to it. All the pattern in this book is knitted in the round and from the top. I can't read or understand chinese, I've tried to ask hubby to explain but I don't think he can help me too. He was saying he is clueless on knitting terms. Well, I'm just going to do some guessing on the graph and diagram if I ever want to knit it. Probably, I'll try out a few of the simple ones once I'm done with the lace wrap cardi. it just looks so tempting (minus the looks of the models).

I love your wrap lace cardigan. Just wanted to let you know that the Knit It cover Fisherman Shrug has corrections to it. I think they are posted on the Lion Brand site. Someone on knitlist mentioned the errors.

Isn't it just so nice to reach the sleeves? Your project looks great!
I love to find knitting books too!

Lovely lace work!

Yes, I think I've bought Knit It for something less than RM10 from MPH before. Must go back and check the latest issue i've got.

Lucky you. I only manage to knit a few rows of my skinny scarf during lunch. Your cardi is looking good.

Yr lace is really great. I love the diamond pattern (I call it) that I have knitted before as a scarf pattern. It looks nice on a cardigan too. Even I am a Chinese and can read Chinese, I still find chinese pattern is difficult to understand. So I almost read Japanese and English knitting books
