Material used : Fish net thread, seed beads in the shade of pink, light and dark purple
Project start and end : 14th Oct, 2006

Vintage 70's top

Yarn : Recycled yarn (100% cotton as per label stated)
Needle : 2.75mm & 3mm
Project start : Jan 2006
Project end : 22th Oct, 2006
Pattern source : Make it yourself

Comments : Another recycled yarn project. It's a very small gauge knitting project and it took me quite some times to finish it. Anyhow I like the pattern and as well the feel of this yarn, it's so pretty and comfry to wear. It's so soft again the skin and very suitable to be wear in Malaysia's humid weather here. I still have half of the leftover yarn after this project and will be using it to knit or crochet a sleeveless top later.

V-neck diamond raglan top

Yarn : Lana Grossa Toccata in butterscotch (100% mer cotton)
Needle : 3.5mm circular
Project start : Early Sept, 2006
Project end : End Oct, 2006
Pattern source : free pattern from but it was no longer available.

Comments : It's a simple V-neck raglan top with open work and diamonds pattern at the bottom. I've made some mistake while knitting this top, I follow the wrong raglan decreasing instruction and have to unravel the front and back pieces that I had finished to re-knit again. Overall, it's just a relaxing knitting. However I'm not satisfy with the outcome, it's kind of tide and short, I think I'll unravel the whole thing and re-knit one with larger size and more longer in length
