About me

Allium

This is my new English blog about myself.

I used to have a Chinese blog to record my life, my thinking, my craft, my knitting… etc.

But, I also want to meet some new friends all around the world who doesn’t know how to read Chinese. So, I tried to move my knitting articles to this blog, and hope to share with others.

Of course, at the same time, I would like other knitters share their great ideas with me.

Besides Knitting, I also like crocheting, needlework (embroidery), scrapbooking, and paper folding (Origami).

I also love photography, and like to capture what I see, what I make and what I cook too.

Welcome to read my blog and feel free to leave few words here!

 

On June 21st, 2007, my daughter Erika was born!!
I am so happy to have her in my life, although it is quite tough for baby caring, but her existence just makes our life more colorful and joy. :)

Hi Lilian,
I was going to reply your comment about the habu scarf kit but was unable to find your email add. Anyways, I hope you do not mind I leave message here. I actually got the kit from stitches west. But I know kpixie.com & knitpurl.com in oregon also carry the same yarn with different color combination. You can also order directly through habu site by calling their 1-800 number. Hope this helps and if you have other questions, feel free to email me.

By the way, I love all the pictures on your blog. They are so beautiful and well shot. Happy knitting!!

Hello. I’ve accidently found one of your older blog entries and in there I’ve seen an origami shell I was looking for a really long time. There’s only one book here in Hungary what contains the description. I’ve used to did it myself, but that was a long time ago. It’s not available here at the moment, so if that’s not too inproper to ask, may I ask you to help me finding it? Even the exact title of the books would help.. But if you have the instructions that would be even better.

This is it:

I found your blog while looking for inspirations to start knitting again. I think your blog is beautiful and inspiring, also your Chinese blog too. I will be looking forward to read both of your blogs.

Thanks for reading my blog, yeah, come on, pick up the sticks and knit again! :)
also, I would like to encourage you to join Ravelry, and also create a knitting blog, that’s help you to organize your knitting projects and habits better.

你好!
我搜索“cheap cutter”的时候意外发现了你的博客
照片很漂亮!几乎全是可爱女儿的相片……
是用什么机子拍的呢?
我要继续去研究切土豆机了……

Could you please help? I found an anny blatt book on your photos(flickr) through a google search for this book, it is the pattern book I bought and my husband threw it out with the newspapers. I cannot get it anywhere but saw that you have it. I have 2 outfits I was in the middle of making for my daughter (who is just married and starting a family) and I cannot finish them. I loved this book, could you tell me where I could get it, or if you would be willing to sell me yours or a scanned copy of yours. The place I bought it from cannot get it again, it is the one with the 2 tone lavender hat on the front and a little boy in a red variegated cardigan and cap with fluffy trims on the back cover, I have even tried France, but they don’t have an english version. Hope you can help me find it, I too love knitting and crochet. Regards Ursula

hello Ursula, nice to hear that you love this Anny blatt book, I love it a lot. However, I moved from Canada to China for a year, and I believed that I sold that pattern book in my garage sale back in 2009. But, I bought that pattern book from the online store: Knit n Tyme. You can check out the following link, I think they still have some English ones : http://www.knitntyme.com/Site.aspx?Content=ProductDetail&Product=9020&Category=154
Hope that helps. :)

Did you join Ravelry, by the way? It’s a good site for you to explore some new or old knitting /crocheting patterns. You may also find some knitters who knit the patterns in this magazine as well. :)
