i was initially inspired after seeing how flawlessly aida managed to miraculously create such lovely knits for her baby Mia, especially the knitted cashmerino cardigan and the knitted baby blanket she posted on her blog. i was thinking that since knitting didn't involve sewing machines, i have a fairly good chance at excelling at this, hahaha (i sucked at sewing. for ERT during my secondary school days, i remember crying to my mom to help me finish my sewing projects. kekekeke). aida makes sewing seems so easy like chewing gum. and besides, i just realized how dull my life is. i have no creative hobby!
so... this is my first attempt. the people there were really helpful. i get a free lesson since i bought supplies from the store (which isn't that cheap, imo). i'm still unsure as to how to start from scratch on my own, or how to connect threads once i'm out of yarn, or how to finish it (heck i can't even visualize the end product!), but first things first kay =P. i'm clueless as to all the terms they use in knitting i.e knit, purl, casting, dropstitch (pickupstitch? hahahaha). and yesterday i think i literally dropped a stitch (i don't know what this means, i imagine you dropping your knitting project onto the floor, hahahahah) so after only knitting a few rows i am now officially stuck because i'm not sure how to continue. i stared at my handiwork for the whole night and still didn't manage to get any bright ideas =(. and the store will only be open next Friday after the CNY break. sigh.
i decided to try 'tinking' and it kinda worked... i managed to solve my boo-boo! yay! and i made a bunch of mistakes along the way and had to 'tink' again *cry*. it's not easy trying to figure out what went wrong. and at the moment i'm out of yarn and i got no idea how to incoporate a new ball of yarn into my creation. hihi.
mil says Baby #2 will be a creative baby... since i'm embarking on this sort of project... lol. i can only say that this pregnancy makes me crave for lots of unhealthy stuff, cold water and indomie included. heu~
ta-da! =P my first attempt at knitting
let's see if i have the patience to finish this
