I made this for my friend. She really likes totoro, one of japan most famous cartoon character. I bought the yarn in bandung.
I found it really hard to get good quality knitting yarn in indonesia. Unlike in other countries, US or UK, Indonesian yarn doesn't have any particular kind, measurement, gauge or laundry note in it when you buy it. You have to imagine or even guess in your head how the fabric will become when being knitted.
My mission is to supply good quality yarns with theirs complete information. Hope I can realize it someday, soon ^_^
Helping knitters in Indonesia to enjoy knitting. Giving space, information, books, supply of tools and yarns. There will also be cakes and teas too!! Introducing my future knit cafe, "Kafe Rajut".

This is my second lace pattern project.
It's something simple,but you should pay an extra attention with your stitches amount if you want to succeed.
I was almost give up when doing this shawl, because this pattern get stuck in the middle.
And then I ask my friend who is a master in lace knitting, and then she told me that this pattern has a correction from its publisher in the internet.
OH MY GOD, I shed my blood and tears in this project until almost 2 days, and suddenly i've been told that the pattern was WRONG.
Luckily i don't have to repeat all of my work.
And finally it' finished in the third day.
Fiuuhhh what a 'BIG' project T_T
