where is my pot of gold ?

I have been waiting for prayers to be answered.
I cannot wait any longer.
I am going to burst.
I am so sick of going through the same thing everyday.
I have been set high up to sail and let down suddenly by a gush of wind.
I am neither here or there.
I have lost my way and cannot see if there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Only time will tell. But i can't wait any longer.
I am holding on to a string of hope, wondering if it has been worthwhile all along.
Maybe i do not belong to this place.
I cannot go on like this.
I wish life would be kinder to me.
" all dressed up" but nowhere to go

I thank the people around me, keeping me sane all this time.

Today, i finally get to wake up early on a sunday morning to have brunch with Bec. Impressive ! Considering that i am such a lazy bum.
Flea market ! And we went home empty-handed. Bec took a picture of my jo sharp scarf. Look how tweedy it is, there is a little embellishment at the bottom though you can't see it.
That's a Clover felting kit which i used to make my embellishment. It's very useful and can be used on practically anything. What a toy!
I hope you all have a good weekend too.

Is knitting a Cult ?

I have finished the Jo Sharp scarf, waiting for a perfect time to take picture.

But now, i have something to show you : Zara scarf. This yarn is heavenly to knit with. I seriously have not knit with butter before. The moss stitches are so defined with this yarn. There is a little mistake with the slip stitch edging.. but who cares, i am the one wearing it .

I feel so at ease when i look at it .. ... Doesn't it brings you inner peace too?

woolla mooo loooo

Back into the knit of things.. i decided that all i need is simple mindless scarves to inspire me to knit again. I was too pressured into knitting garments and ended up in a mess with hair pulling, ripping and tears.

The brown mass above is a garter stitch scarf in progress, knitted in Jo Sharp's aran tweed. It is so tweedy and sophisticated which makes me look forward to winter badly. I have enough of this horrendous warm weather anyway. Australian summer is really putting me in a bad mood.
Here are 2 balls of recently acquired 'Zara'.. yes.. my first 2 balls of precious Zara. After hearing continuous raves by Jennifer, i simply have to try it. I will knit a moss stitch scarf to show off its squishy woollen properties. ( it's machine washable too, great for lazy girls like me) If all goes well, i will get the green Zara and knit my cousin's long waiting scarf.
I will knit n purl away all my blues and life's uncertainties......

knitting slump

My knitting has hit a slump for the past few months. I just can't pick up the needles and knit non-stop like before. I am not sure if i am inspired anymore or just plain lazy. For the past 2 weeks, i have been ripping out my scarf over and over again; constantly searching for new patterns online but in vain.

Please send the knitting fairies back to me.
