Simple bolero cardigan

Yarn : Online linie 163 Bingo in colour shade of "Sand", 100% mercerised cotton
Needle : 3.5mm
Project start : 22nd April, 2006
Project end : 29th May, 2006
Pattern source : Drops Magazine

Comments : A simple bolero to knit, only required stockinette stitches with ribbings around it. I done it in medium size and it's just nicely fit.

Changes made :
As I don't have enough yarn for the whole bolero, I done the ribbings border with other type and colour of yarn compared to the body. And it turn out not too bad, eventhought it did look abbit odd but still alright.

Sparkling Sequins Top

Project start : 30th April, 2006
Project end : 07th May, 2006

Comments : This is one of my planning to reconstruct my old garments that I can't be fitted in now or outdated in fashion. I change it from a plain and long sleeve pullover to 3/4 length sleeve and sewn in pink, red and transparent sequins around the neckline down to the body of the front portion to make it look more interesting. At least it won't be so dull to wear. The outcome : A chic 3/4 sleeve top!!
