Knitting: Vest
I am a big fan of vests, but it typically understates its identity and is submissive to other items in my opinion. So I have designed the unisex vest that roars its existence with unmistakingly dynamic and chunky cables.

When I designed Conscious awareness and Compulsive pleasure, I love the dancing cables so much that I wanted to design a pullover with them, which is how Tessarina has been born.

Knitting: Other Top
Toora is constructed by one of my favourite way - the top down, raglan shoulders and all in one piece!
Knitting: Cowl
ACCH is a quick and fun project. The cowl is worked from the top down – from the neck to the bottom. The circumference of the bottom half is larger by using larger needles, so that no increase stitches, easy peasy! But you can make it straight for your taste. Also you can add the line in contrast colour. Enjoy!
Knitting: Scarf
Calicante is a lace scarf in a long trapezoid shape with each end tapered alike. It starts with increasing stitches until it has enough stitches to work evenly for a while, and then decreases to finish. The lace on each side is slightly different, but equally gorgeous, so that you can enjoy both sides.

Elfiette is Elf’s cousin.
Knitting: Cowl
Take a look at both sides. Do you see how cool they both are?! I like both, but I am so fascinated by the almost three dimensional texture on the wrong side. It looks even like a ripple in the storm. The lace is so stretchy and flexible that it covers my shoulders, so that I enjoy this as a shawl, as well as a cowl.
Knitting: Vest, Other Top
I like wearing a garment in linen in summer, it is light and dry, a perfect fibre to me. When I was searching some interesting linen yarn, Vera caught my eyes. 65% silk and 35% linen/flax - mmm very interesting and unique combo! I was over the moon when Anzula kindly supported the yarn.
Knitting: Pullover

When I was on vacation in Japan, I saw a lovely cotton blouse - loose body fit with flaring sleeve - I think a translucent organdy was used for the sleeve. Unfortunately the colour I wanted was not available, so I decided to make one for myself in summer yarn. Here it is! It is actually better than what I saw in Japan!
Knitting: Cardigan
I made this cardi/bolero in summer 2015. I brought this with me everywhere I went, to a theatre, a restaurant, a friend’s house, a museum, etc. It is so light that I just throw it in my purse. When it’s time for washing, pop it in a washer! I wore and washed so many times, it is now so soft like a linen fabric. I just looove linen yarn!

Swing, as the name suggests, is a swingy pullover with an A-line shape from under the arm to the bottom. I wanted to let the silk blend yarn shine by itself and give a beautiful drape with the pleats in the back. The lace around the neck adds a breezy feel to the Stokinette body. Since the body is nice and relaxed with plenty of positive ease, ...
