pet peeve

One thing I really hate is people who borrow things and NEVER return them! Argh~~~ this is the 2nd time it has happened with the particular person and I don't know why I lent her my dvds, when she did not return one of my novels which was out-of-print now....

sigh...and of course the DVD I had to lend her was one of my favourite Korean dramas... which means now I have to get the whole set AGAIN.

scarf progress....

Remember my previous scarf? Well this is it, progressing quite nicely albeit slowly... ;;^^ But I'm quite happy with the 7mm needles, the ribbing and the Zara yarn. ^^

I'm going to try out another hat pattern...I'm still thinking what yarn I'll be using and if it works. But if it works, chances are the pattern will be posted here again... ;;^^

Knitting patterns

Added a new column for free knitting patterns that I've done. ^^

First up is Kitty Kat (refer to this previous post), though it's still untested but it's easily adaptable.

Let me know if this works... :) or if I need to edit it... ;;^^

BTW the link will take you to a PDF version.

Lunch Idea!

This is an easy and cheap lunch idea I had. Made this for bf...;;^^

Mini tonkatsu (comes in a pack and was about $7.00, I think) and deep fried beancurd (comes in a pack of 12 for about $2.00) served in a bed of rice sprinkled with dried seaweed and sesame seeds. This lunch pack comes with a serve of seaweed kimchi (about $3.00) and completed with tonkatsu sauce and wasabi mayonnaise. While the total comes to about $12, but this is actually enough to feed one person 4 times. ^^ So technically, the whole lunch only cost about $3! ^^ Nice and easy and delicious too! ^^

More knitting books entry....

Before you gasp and accuse me of not sticking to the err...financially savvy me... I have to declare I have not bought these books YET. LOL although I think they are really interesting and are probably worth it...;;^^

Some are crochet-based but I think these would be a nice addition to any knitting library... ^^
