I miss 2 knit lah! xD

My latest knitting project. I bought the pattern like 2 years ago.. from the knitpicks.com site. I just love the simple pattern but yet it looks very romantic once you wear it xD So now, I decided to try out the pattern with using the Alize yarns given by my hubby.. hopefully i can finish this without delay. really do hope so xD

The edging part is amazingly pretty. Can’t believe that knitting can create such gorgeous lace edging :) Started on 17 October 2011 – Finish by…. ? ? xD

Cara memulakan belajar mengait

Assalamualaikum everyone.. apa khabar? Semoga teman Da’Knit semua sihat sentiasa insyaAllah…

Kali ini Da’Knit ingin membuat pos mengenai Cara Memulakan Belajar Mengait sama ada Knitting ataupun Crochet.

Saya telah menerima sebuah email daripada seorang hamba Allah bertanyakan tentang cara memulakan mengait beg ataupun topi.

Oleh itu, disini, saya ingin memberikan panduan memulakan seni mengait ini. Diharap pos ini akan membantu anda yang juga ingin belajar mengait :)

My current project.. Crochet Along with Yarn Lovers Malaysia (YLM) :)

1. Memahami asas mengait jarum kait dua (Knitting) ataupun jarum kait satu (Crochet)

Knitting (Jarum Kait Dua)

Asas yang perlu diketahui ialah:

Photo credited to http://www.craftstylish.com

Crochet (Jarum Kait Satu)

Asas yang perlu diketahui ialah:

2. Memahami istilah-istilah untuk Knitting dan Crochet

Istilah Knitting dan Crochet:

Untuk bacaan berbentuk instruction/arahan, kita harus memahami setiap istilah singkatan bagi bacaan tersebut. Untuk tujuan ini, anda boleh merujuk Knitting Abbreviations (sila klik link) untuk memahami setiap istilah.

Manakala untuk bacaan crochet, anda juga perlu memahami setiap istilah singkatan bagi bacaan pattern tersebut. Crochet hadir dalam bentuk arahan dan juga diagram. Bagi memahami istilah berbentuk arahan, anda boleh klik pada link ini: Crochet Abbreviations dan untuk memahami istilah simbol, anda boleh klik pada link ini: Crochet Symbols

Setiap istilah ini menyatakan jenis kaitan yang perlu kita buat. Oleh itu, anda perlu perhatikan juga cara kaitan (boleh rujuk di youtube.com) bagi setiap istilah untuk memudahkan anda membaca pattern dan mengait pattern tersebut.

3. Praktik Menggunakan Pattern yang Mudah.

Setelah anda memahami asas dan juga cara membaca istilah pattern, maka, anda sudah pun boleh memulakan kaitan anda dengan merujuk pattern yang mudah bagi mengait projek yang anda inginkan.

Antara laman-laman web yang anda boleh lawati ialah seperti:

http://www.straw.com/cpy/free_patterns.html

http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/

Anda boleh pilih pattern yang mudah.. kebiasaannya akan dinyatakan pattern tersebut adalah untuk Beginner. Cuba dan fahami setiap istilah di dalam pattern, dan kemudian kait perlahan-lahan mengikut arahan/simbol yang diberi. InsyaAllah, saya percaya anda boleh lakukannya!

4. Pemilihan Benang.

Pada masa kini, anda boleh mendapatkan pelbagai jenis benang yang menarik dari pelbagai jenis manufacture secara offline ataupun online. Di Malaysia, benang-benang yang biasa digunakan adalah terdiri daripada Nona, Minlon, Sakura, Wina, Venus, Orion Top dan pelbagai lagi jenis-jenis benang yang diperbuat daripada acrylic. Kebanyakkan benang-benang tempatan ini sesuai digunakan untuk mengait alas meja, beg, amigurumi namun secara kasarnya, kurang sesuai untuk digunakan mengait pakaian. Secara online pula, anda boleh mendapatkan benang-benang yang lebih baik kualiti dan mutunya untuk mengait baju, shawl, pakaian bayi dan pelbagai projek untuk keselesaan. Benang-benang ini boleh digunakan menggunakan satu jarum (crochet) mahupun dua jarum (knitting). Benang khas crochet yang dipanggil sebagai crochet thread sesuai digunakan untuk membuat lace ataupun doilies. Manakala benang-benang biasa (yang pelbagai saiz) sama ada crochet ataupun knitting, kedua-duanya boleh digunakan untuk mengait benang-benang ini. Pemilihan jarum dan benang adalah berdasarkan thickness benang tersebut. Semakin tebal benang, maka semakin besar saiz jarum yang digunakan dan begitu juga sebaliknya. Jikalau anda mengait merujuk pattern, maka adalah lebih elok anda mengait berdasarkan jarum dan benang yang dicadangkan. Jikalau tidak mempunyai benang ataupun jarum seperti di dalam pattern, maka peranan Gauge sangat penting dalam mendapatkan ukuran kaitan yang diinginkan.

Anda boleh layari laman-laman web ini untuk melihat jenis-jenis benang yang ada di kedai online kami:

http://yarnsonlineshop.com – kedai benang online Da’Knit Yarns

http://www.daknit.com – kedai jarum kait dua/satu dan benang online Da’Knit

Diharap guidelines ini akan membantu kawan-kawan yang ingin belajar mengait jarum satu ataupun dua :) Jangan cepat putus asa! Yang penting.. sentiasa praktikkan apa yang telah dipelajari. Practice makes perfect!

InsyaAllah.

Semoga panduan ini memberikan manfaatnya untuk kita semua. Sebarang pertanyaan boleh diajukan ke sindarery@gmail.com

May Allah swt bless us all :)

Have a good night!

Simple thing always lovely!

Lately, I’ve been playing with hooks more than my needles.. I guess, I just got addicted with the way how fast you can finish one project with crochet.. Knitting is always my favourite however, it’s not fair to leave out crochet as a hobby too. So I’ve been surfing around, gathering more crochet patterns to put into my collections, and then, I found this very lovely slipper from ZoomYummy.Com. Thank you so much for sharing :)

The tutorial is very clear, easy to be understood and so easy to make! For the first time, I took the challenge to crochet something that I never done yet before, this cute simple slipper! :) Well.. since it’s my first time and just some trial and error, don’t ask me where is the other half :P . Because I’m so excited, I couldn’t wait to show it to you! ( Will move to second slipper insyaAllah.. soon!)

Tada!! My first slipper xD yay!! Alhamdulillah.. Oh yes, this rakuraku really feel good to be held. However, in my opinions, the clover comfort hook and rakuraku do give me the same feeling while crochet :P Both are comfortable and pain-relief if you are a core-crocheter. Oh and.. isn’t the yarn looks yummy?? xD This yarns was a swapped with kak Aisyah Helga. I really love this yarn so much because of the texture feel so like a fabric though the fiber was a 100% acrylic. This yarn is from ice yarns, summer rose. Unfortunately, there is no stock for this colour anymore.. :( sob…

Oh and.. good news for every hooks lovers, Da’Knit Online Store had been updated with new stocks. Don’t miss out our hot items, the 6 hooks per set with handle and sweet colour. They are light and comfortable to use for long hours. Also, there will be a free gifts for the first 5 buyers of this hook. So Hurry Up! :)

Don’t forget to visit us xD anything, don’t be hesitate to email us at sindarery@gmail.com or at facebook.com/daknit

Soon, I’m going to start back with my customer’s order. Need to knit it fast (again and again and again hehe..) Kak Pari Pari.. kalau ada apa2.. email saya ya :) terima kasih di atas order akak sekali lagi..alhamdulillah..

Thank you for hopping by! May Allah swt bless us all. Thank you and have a good night!

Staccato…?

Projek terbaru…

Alhamdulillah.. wah it has been a while I’ve been away from writing any new entry…. syukur alhamdulillah I have the chance now. Oh anddd…. FYI, tajuk Staccato ni sebenarnya tidak ada kena mengena dengan penulisan saya hari ini.. but mentioning about staccato.. I miss to spend my time with my piano.. oh well.. still I have my bestfriend – Knitting and Crochet! huhuhu…  jikalau lah kita mempunyai 48 jam sehari kan best! xD

Recently, saya telah bercadang untuk membuat buku belajar mengait jarum dua secara perlahan-lahan. InsyaAllah.. saya akan cuba kongsikan perkembangannya dari semasa ke semasa ( aahhah tapi tidaklah secara besar-besaran.. hanya sekadar untuk hobi dan berkongsi ilmu dengan para peminat mengait jarum dua yang lain, insyaAllah.. :) ) Tujuan buku ini adalah untuk membantu meningkatkan lagi semangat saya untuk terus teruja dengan bidang seni mengait.

Alhamdulillah.. I am grateful to Allah, that also, my husband has his support for me in this small project…  Oh andd… Jikalau ada teman-teman yang ingin memberikan cadangan, bolehlah terus email kepada kami di sindarery@gmail.com k?! Mana tahu.. ada cadangan-cadangan yang menarik yang boleh dimuat sama di dalam buku ini dan boleh dikongsi bersama dengan rakan-rakan yang lain :)

Besides, there is a new tutorial+KIT that I am making now and still in progress.. need to do the trial and error since I’ll be using my own design pattern for this tutorial.. InsyaAllah.. Once done, I’ll be uploading it to Da’Knit Online Store. Perhaps and hopefully, it will be very useful for those who wants to start learning on how to knit and crochet.. oh however, just for your information, this tutorial is focusing on the Crochet method. InsyaAllah, will be followed by Knitting in the future.

Oh oh.. for not to forget, I really need to write down a new list again of my new order.

To-do-list

1. Knitting hat for a baby of 1-2 years old – Thank you for the order Mdm Pari Pari :) DONE

2. Knit a bag for my colleague – oh .. i need to be hurry to get this done!

3. Crochet hat for myself – yup.. this is a must!

4. Knit a sweater for my dad – for my lovely dad :D May Allah swt always protects our family. Amin.

5. …… We will see……

uh oh… I really need to balance my work and my hobbies …. may Allah gives me a strength to handle all things wisely! Amin..

Ok.. done with the chit chat.. InsyaAllah, will give more updates of my latest knit and crochet projects soon!
