New Bear, "Grey"

Yarn : Leftover from this, this and this project
Needle : Steel crochet hook no. 4 and 10
Project start : 18th April, 2006
Project end : 22nd April, 2006
Pattern source : Whip up, Camilla bear

Comments : A very challenging project to do as I need to trial an error before I could get the whole bear work correctly especially the facial part. And it's a very good project to destash and a great gift as well. I'm satisfy with the outcome and intend to make few to give away as baby gifts.

Changes made : I used single crochet for the whole bear instead of slip stitch as per instructions as single crochet is more easy to handle.

Lace Top

Yarn : Lana Grossa Toccata in the shade of Butterscotch (100% Mer Cotton)
Needle : 4mm circular
Project start : 26th January, 2007
Project end : 13th April, 2007
Pattern source : Mass Pattern book in Chinese

Changes made : The collar and sleeve edges suppose to have ruffle all around, but the yarn is abit heavy when knitted in ruffle, so I just maintain the collar part, but thinking of unravel it cause it looks abit awful. I also lengten the top by few inches.
Comments : Overall, I'm kind of satisfy with the outcome except the collar ruffle, maybe I will get rib of it later but not now, will just keep it till I make up my decision later.
