Just tried a tension swatch alternating between 10mm and 6mm needles – I must say, I’m rather impressed how it turned out.

  6. Wowww you are incredible. You know how to sew, stud your bags and shoes and now knitting too! Did you pick up these skills by yourself over the years or did you learn from your mom/ a relative? =) I’m so impressed!

    Haha you guessed correctly!! I’m getting my friend to help me order the one with the flowers. Haha most people guessed wrongly ;p the thought i’d get the first one. Really hope it’ll arrive eventually though. All the international shipping and sending is going to take ages…

    The great thing about you is that when you see something you like you actively try to DIY it so at least it’s money saved =) not spoilt at all!

  7. Wow it’s looking incredible so far! I’m eagerly waiting for the finished result. So do you pretty much just use different sized needles? I only know the knitting basics.
