Now she wants to learn knitting, tauhgt her crochet before but I failed as a sifu, she is a how? This time I asked her just take any knitting needles and the stash yarn, knit something small for your dolls. Taa daaa.....finally she finished it last night. Noticed there are some drop / loose stitches....anywhere, I am proud that she can finished ....yeah, cute blanky for her Kelly doll by my 9 yrs old daughter

more than 1kg of paper linen yarn from Japan....the moment I opened the box from Japan, my sister, my eldest daughter and myself reacted with big O (mouth open widely) ;;; tough time to wind up.
