Knit Scarf - New Year, New WIP

I am knitting a scarf using magic loop method. I have learned this method recently and found it's really easy to do, a comfortable feeling when knitting! I've also learned how to knit with DPNs, will try it in another project one day, but now I prefer this one. I'm so excited with my first knitting WIP!

I'm using Bernat worsted weight and 5.0mm circular needles, cast on 62 stitches and knit stockinette stitches in the rounds. Hope I will get it done soon, knitting is always an achievement to me when I finish something! :)

Crochet Fat Bottom Bag

Hello everyone!

Thank you for stopping by and your sweet words to me throughout the last time, I really appreciate your encouragement! I have been quite busy at work so I'm very excited to be back now! Hope you had a wonderful time with your loved ones!

I would like to show you the first Fat Bottom Bag, I dreamed on it for a long time! So many adorable crocheters made this bag and showed it on their beautiful blogs, they also create an inspiration to me! At last I finished my own one, it turned out as lovely as I desired! Pattern is from this book.
The lining inside. For those who's wondering how to sew the lining, please check here. I followed the instruction and must say I'm very pleased with it!
Have a wonderful and sunshine day!

Hello my lovely friends!

I'm very excited to be back to you after a while non-blogged. Hope you all had a wonderful time and the busy-ness will never keep us away from our wonder blogland!

I joined sweet Casey's Pay It Forward a while ago and now I'm Paying It Forward! It's one of my plans in this year, and I think it's time to start the fun!

If you are wondering about the PIF, here is how it works:
