Knitted hat July 12, 2014
I don’t know how to knit a hat. I also don’t know how to knit with double-pointed needle.
This video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FzIWKjKIK8) teaches me how to. Thanks you so much.
I don’t satisfy with the quality of hat I made. But I felt happy because I learn a new experience.
Hope next time, I can do better. Waiting for my sis. What will she tell me? She will accept everything I made for her. 😀
The measurement- 36 x 3, for circumference , 9 inches long
Presents for Teachers November 21, 2013
This month is “Festival of Lights” in Myanmar. Myanmar uses lunar calendar. Myanmar month ‘Tazaungmone’ falls on November.
In this month, we go and pay respects to parents and teachers. When we visits to them, we buy some foods, fruits and presents useful to them. With advanced technology, my sis and her husband paid respect to my mom through Skype meeting.
This year, I prepared some mufflers/shawls for my old teachers. When I knit, I usually do 5-6 lines a day. But fortunately, I got some vacation time and can finish in time.
Currently, I am knitting another shawl for My student. I wish and pray she could study in Japan. She prepared tasty Me Zali bud salad (Cassia siamea) at the fullmoon of Tazaungmone. It is believed eating this will be healthy for the whole year. You can read more at http://myanmarvisa.com/latestnews/2013/11/19/tazaunamon-tne-nortn-of-tazajnadainc-fostivel/.

Knitting – 5 September 3, 2013
Grandpa (My mom’s father ) is nearly 90 years old but he is still active, strong will to live. (for me, frankly enough, sometimes get boring to live. I have to keep myself busy not to come this kind of attitude.) Grandparents from dad’s side were expeired since dad’s young age.
Grandpa likes me being teacher. Instead of calling me Grandchild, sometimes he called me teacher.
For me, he is more lovely than Grandma. He loves and treats fair to all his grandchildren. But I think Grandma loves one of my cousin most as he(my cousin) brought up on her hand. Grandpa likes the fried egg I made. And he also listens to my words 😀 .
I went along with Mom’s sudden visit to Grandparents. When I received the call from Dad and knew that Mom’s visit to them, I have nothing onhand to give for Grandpa. Fortunately, it was just the beginning of the month (That means I still have money:D ),and I was at downtown to buy yarn. So I bought some delicioucy for Granparents.
I decided to knit for him to express my love. I started this muffler at the bus terminal waiting to depart my Grandparent’s place.
When we were young, it was very difficult to go to the Grandparent’s place. We have to use by all means of communications (on foot, on bus, on train, on ship, and on trishaw …) It was really tired to reach there. Since 8 years ago, it is not much trouble like before. Taking high-way bus can reach before grandparents’ house. But the bus was still terrible and small seat.
Now air conditioned buses are available and comfortable to travel there. However, there is no electricity at their place yet. So no distrubance like TV channels. I just sit, knit and knit all day long before the light goes. Mom had not decided which date we would go back home. So I just focused on knitting to finish it. Not boring. Because our relatives around Grandparents’ place visit us. As it was rainy season, many of them stopped their job for a while. We were fun with the little monkey.
This muffler was finished within two days and completed on 10 June 2013.
