New Yarns, Fabrics & Buttons

 Great mail day today! My cotton crochet threads arrived! I ordered some plain ones..
 and some multicolored ones. The colors are beautiful! 
 And three half-meter fabrics from Nana. Aren't they gorgeous?? And knitting needles? I finally decided to learn knitting so I ordered a pair of bamboo knitting needles from Ery. When Hazel saw them, she was so excited and wanted to learn, too! From me. Who had just tried knitting for a day. I taught her what I knew and so, one pair of needles wasn't enough. Incidentally, my husband went to mainland and I asked him to buy another pair. Everyone's happy! I've mastered casting on but not the knit stitches. Anybody willing to teach me? Here, by my side? I really need help. 
 Aren't these buttons lovely? I just love the owl ones and ordered them as soon as they were uploaded on Button Planet. The wooded ones are from Nana as well. The ones on cards were swapped on Swap Workshop and some more are coming soon. I just love buttons! And I found two blogs that are all about buttons : Button Floozies and Bonkers About Buttons
I'm drowning in flowers at the moment. They will be finished by today and hopefully by tomorrow, all the ends  will be weaved in, too. And I still have more orders pending, so I won't be posting anytime soon. 
Have a lovely week!

you tube is the place to learn knitting or anything else for that matter. You can turn the video back as many times as you like until you have grasped it.good luck

Thanks, Pauline! I did looked there and they did help but I still need someone to show me how to hold the needles and yarns
properly. But I'll do my best! Thanks for the support!

Lovely colours all of them, I particulalry like the red, the aqua and the green on the first photo. I wonder what beautiful creations you'll be making with these. Good luck with your knitting, I used to do a lot of knitting when I was younger, I can still remember the basics but for the more complicated stitches I would need to have my mum sat by my side.

Aisyah, all your new goodies look so yummy! Good luck with the knitting...I know it can feel awkward at first, but you'll persevere. If there's no one that can teach you in person, have you tried YouTube? Keep going, you'll get it :-)

Aisyah Helga said... [Reply to comment]

@Zila, boleh...kalau nak datang bgtau akak, ye.

@Josie, I have looked at some tutorials on YouTube and they were helpful but I think it has to do with my awkwardness holding the needles and yarn. I will try harder!

Thank you everyone for all you support!

Wow yummy colourful yarns!!!!
Cool that you're learning to knit.

I'm always slow in knitting that why I opt for crochet more =P. I guess I have a problem on holding the 2 needles!

Aisyah Helga said... [Reply to comment]

@Fyd, ye lah. Very awkward holding 2 needles at a time, dah biasa pegang 1 je kan? I'll attack it when I really have the time!

Yati said... [Reply to comment]

Oh, ni mesti busy siapkan tempahan lagi ni. Selamat, kak Aisyah! :)
