Crocheted Tunic

I made this tunic using size 10 thread. The brand is Papillon (made in greek). The thread itself was very expensive. One ball (50 gram) was USD 8,-, however, it was very nice to work with. I needed about 7 balls to make this tunic.

Although I really enjoy the process to make this, the same thing could not be said about the result. I looked terrible wearing this, as you can see it yourself.

Probably one day, I will frogg the whole thing and use the thread to make something else.

These 2 photos are taken by my camera CANON Power Shot A 620 Digital Camera. They are untouched but as you can see they are look different. It's because the first photo I used automatic setting, but the second photo I use "SCN: Foliage" Setting.

Addi Lace Needle

I bought Addi Lace Needle size 2.5 mm, 3.0 mm, 3.5 mm, and 4.00 mm after I heard so many good review about it. Now, the problem is, I am not very good at knitting shawl. I always forgot to make YO and I don't like knitting that need concentration.

Anyway, I already used the needle and it's quite good. I don't like the brass finishing, make it look like cheap needle. I still love my Addi Turbo more.

My First Yarn

This is my first expensive yarn that I bought when I started to learn to knit. I bought it in my LYS (local yarn shop). Since this was going to be my first knit project, I only bought 2 balls, just enough to made my daughter bolero.
One ball cost me about USD 7.

Hubby: How much does it cost?
Me: USD 7.
Hubby: For both?
Me: Nope, only one.
Hubby: What? So expensive? Why don’t you use cheap yarn?
