I'm Japanese who can't speak English very well, but somehow my husband is Canadian who can't speak Japanese... To improve my English, I try to write about my hobby like knitting and baking in English. I'll use broken English though... please forgive me!

present for my friend's new born baby!

I knitted a baby cardigan and "buddy" from knitty for my friend. I don't know well how to finish (I mean sewing seam and so on) so it doesn't look nice so much... I felt a little bit bad so that I add baby cloth from GAP and made "buddy". Buddy is so cute! I mistook leg parts and put arms in too low place though.
I'm really busy because I go back to Japan next week. Next post will be written in Japan...

I've done ene's scarf!

ene's scarf
I knitted so hard that I forgot to post this blog, but I finally made it!!
I'm really happy because I worried whether I could finish it so much.
It's finished much nicer than I thought. (you know, I'm a beginner knitter.)
It was really difficult for me. I always had to count number of stitches and pay attention to the book... but now I was just relieved and satisfied so I don't know what to say. Anyways I'm pretty happy, for sure!!

I gave up using the alpaca yarn... then I started all over again with new yarns. It's on my FOURTH attempt! I was thinking that it was beyond my skill but I've been knitting ene's with no mistakes so far. ...Finally!!
I changed only yarns so that I was really surprised. Actually I've used the alpaca yarn before and I didn't have no problems. Why?? St st is OK but lace is not OK? Oh, maybe I need more experience and knowledge about knitting... Anyways I've really enjoyed knitting it now. I'm doing on chart 2 (second times), I'll finish it soon...I hope.
