Full Satisfaction

Knitting a Small Bag yourself, will make you have full satisfaction

Make your knitting hobby be beneficial. You could knit many things, from a blanket, to a coat, sweater, hat, beanie, belt, hairband, scarf, blouse, dress, skirt, gloves, cup coaster, bags, ipad bag, purse, if I continue, I guess this list won't stop.

Kitting is a hobby, whereby you could knit while you watch television, while you are listening to music, having tea in your garden, many others. After doing it a million times, yours hands can keep going and going without you looking at it for a short while. Its like automated knitting machine.(Image of 3 yarns are self taken)

My knitting has started

Purplelicious mix with blue and pink yarn

May years ago, I was thought the simple knitting by my aunt. I only learn the basic pattern. I knitted a belt and a piece of cloth. It was all pink. Just pink and nothing else. Before I could learn any pattern, my aunt shifted out, the knitting stopped there. But recently, I was surfing the internet, I read some knitting blogs. It was interesting, I really like those with flower pattern. So I decided to search my 2 knitting needles and my left over pink yarn. Knitting needles found, but yarn not found. Well I had no choice. I search online to find shops to buy some yarn. Unfortunately, there are not any around my area.

But I soon found some article whereby this girl wrote where she bought some yarn. The very next day, I went to get some yarn. Dream purple, it's a mix colour of light purple and light blue. Another was green and white. Well, I've got all now. Ready to knit. Since its been more then 10 years, I need to start up the engine by testing a few times before I could really start knitting. I tried for 3 times, curling up and down, in and out. Soon after, I finally got it right. I begin my knitting lesson, the same as previous, the basic level. I hope to knit a bag this time.

There are still many types of design pattern which you could learn. It will be really fun. There is no boundaries on knitting, you could choose any color and any design, you are the boss of yourself. Its awesome right?

Its interesting and really exciting to make your own things and get to feel the satisfaction. Give it a try. Good luck.

New Knitting Project

Knitting Phone Case

I started with the normal knitting, the basic stitch. Oh hey its stitch again? Just like my previous lense whereby I was talking about stitch but it was the popular Disney cartoon stitch ( Lilo & Stitch). What a coincidence! I did not notice until I was writing this. Guess I am really a 'stitch' fan.

Oh well, let's go back to the knitting stitch, I knitted out a square cloth of the basic stitch, just like the photo posted above. Well, enough practice for now. After that I was decided to try other knitting pattern. I tried the purl, than knit together. It was fun, so I decided to make something new. I made a Iphone case to keep my Iphone. The wideness was about 25 stitches. This pattern, I started with 5 rows of basic knitting and continue with doing - knit 1 row and purl 1 row. I measured the height of my Iphone and add extra about 2 inches. I continue the knit 1 row and purl 1 row until the last 2 inches and ending with another few knit rows. Before I cut the yarn off, please measure the height correctly to fit the phone. Click the pictures for better view.

What's next? You can't leave it hanging with the knitting needle, you gotta bind off the sides. After binding off, you have to join the seams together. I did it with a giant big head needle as the yarn could not fit the normal sewing needles. You fold it into half but the inside is facing out. Start joining the seams with my big head needle and hide the ends. Once its done, turn inside out. Yeap, you got it there.

Iphone case ready to be used.

After that I did another phone case but this time, I made a bigger one as the previous 25 stitches was a super fit (exact fit). This time I made about 32 stitches wide. I started off the same as the previous, the normal basic stitch. After about 5 rows, I continue with the knit 1, purl 1. Soon later I found a new stitch pattern 'pretty stitch'. I had no idea but the video mentioned it was call a 'pretty stitch'. I made 2 rows of these on the upper side of the case before bidding off the seams. That would be the larger case in the photo.

My Tiny Table Lace

Greeny Petal Table Lace

My next project was using a thinner yarn, this was a mixture of green and white. This colour seem more plain and simple. So it is. My plan was to do a table lace. I began to knit while watching Tv. I started making the round shape, the it only went in circles, I thought it was rather boring, I went online to view some patterns, found a simple one. Its called the "Simply Elegant Crochet Motif by Yolanda. She is great!! It was using shell patterns. It was cool. I had to see a couple of times before I made it since I was a slow learner. After the circle, I made about 2 shells row but I did not close up the way she did. I made a different design at the closing by making some flower petal design.

Greeny Round Table Lace

Circular Design

Since I stil had some yarn, I tried to make another tiny table lace for tiny coffee table. I started off the same, but added more stitches to make the centre tighter. As you can see in the previous petal design, it was rather lose at the centre. So this time I added extra stitch at the centre. Actually I was just trying to explore myself to make a new design. Not following the rules. I added and lessen some stitch here and there now I have this new design. How to close it up? I had petal previously, so why not just make it simple circular. And there you go, another tiny round table lace for a tiny coffee table.
