New Arrival

Finally one of the new arrivals shows up at my atelier. Well, I am still working on new designs and colors here and there. Developed some, fixed some, and trashed some... This process would never end but I enjoy it. Trying something new is always fun and exciting.

In the meanwhile I want to introduce you this improved big drawstring bag. The basic is always the best. :) Nothing fancy but it truly takes care of all your need. It embraces a working project, a few balls of yarns and some extras such as cable needles, darning needles, stitch markers, scissors, rulers, and even hand lotions if you'd like to. I like this six spacious inner pockets for my knitting-out days. When I go out one of those are occupied by a few of candy drops or gum strips for fun. :)
I am in love with this rich orange color. So juicy, so yummy. Whenever I dye this color I have this desire of drinking the whole bowl of dye water. Sounds so strange but if you saw this color in a glass you would know I am not exaggerating.

Since many of you asked me to offer bigger-sized bags I tried. Here we are. This is a 14"(35cm) by 14"(35cm) square bag. Not too huge but big enough for your medium sized project. Not too plain but flirty enough to show off at knitting group meetings. 
 I am trying to offer many different colors and sizes. As most of you already know please contact me if you want to customize the bag as you wish. I am always happy to work with you. You're my best inspiration!

Flower Power

 Hi everyone~

Hope your spring is full of warmth, freshness, and love just like gentle spring breeze. We are approaching the top of wonderful spring in Korea. My daily walk trail is nicely dressed up with colorful spring flowers and yellow green baby buds. They reminds me of preciousness of life, freshness of a new start, and warm fuzzy feelings of my loved ones.

While I was enjoying this marvelous season I whipped up one little project. This is my first time playing with lots of colors at once. Well, wanted to show off saying I did "colorwork" but I am not quite there yet. So.. this is my simple version of colorwork. (Please don't laugh.) Hopefully sometime soon I can master real colorwork so I can introduce some of my projects proudly. Until then this would be my colorwork.

Making lots and lots of flowers were fun but weaving ends was purely painful. It took forever but I admit that flowers are POWERFUL!~. Love the every each vibrant color and the vibe the whole combination brings. I have to say it is absolutely labor of love.

I am using this little pouch for my yarn cozy. Perhaps it is little too fancy for a ball of yarn but whenever I look at it I cannot get off of my eyes from it. It is just too fun!

So, what is you side of spring story? Are you making something fun, too? Something for someone you love? I'd love to hear what you're up to~

A Little Something for My Lonely Corner

Hi everyone,

Are you having a festive, fun, exciting holiday season? I am sure many of you are extra busy for preparing family get-togethers, year-end-meetings, gift-shoppings, and all other activities. Today I am writing a quick post of my recent crochet project. Nothing particularly special but just let you what I've been up to. :)

Somehow I've been hooked on crocheting with colorful, fun yarns nowadays. I LOVE strong, rich colors but when it comes to combining colors I am rather conservative. Personally I take a safe road and usually happy with it. In Korea there's a old saying. "You start getting into vibrant colors. It means you're getting older." Not sure where it came from but suddenly I am a bit worried myself. :) Well, I'd like to think it is just a good way of getting old. What is fun if we like exactly the same colors, same shades, same things in our whole life. Must be super boring. Even if that's a sign of getting old I am happy that I finally am able to appreciate wider spectrum of colors.

Here's my tiny corner next to my bed. Since we moved to this house it's been extra plain almost a year. A white cabinet, a white table. As simple as possible. Well, but from some point this year I started adoring vibrant colors by purchasing lots of colorful yarns. As a knitter we will never have enough yarns (Am I right or what?) but some of those yarns turned out to be not my cup of coffee. I was not really fond of how they felt against my skin. So I proceeded a project to use up some of them for something not wearables.

She is called a baby blanket (Rainbow Ripple Baby Blanket by Celeste Young)  but I decided to give her a different purpose. Now you can see how I enjoy her. She is just perfect for my rather boring corner. It might be still little too wild for my taste but I am stunned by the way she sits on my table. She totally changes the ambiance of our bedroom. What you do think?

This is such an easy pattern that anyone who can do dc could finish in a few days. Play with colors so you can make this simple pattern look extra fun. you'll be totally surprised with what you create~ I am happy with the result so much that I might try some more soon. I am getting older but finding something new is extra exciting!

Happy Holidays and Keep Creating~
