Hat for my father

This hat for my papa. Guess what? My father loves this one more than Fair-Isle one. LOL Oh men' taste LOL He loves its color, its stitch, and its size. Anyway Thanks God he loves it. To be more honest he is not demanding person, but he is alike my mom if he doesn't like something he doesn't wear it. I even asked him what color or style you want me to do for you. He replied do it whatever , you should to know your papa' taste now. I know he likes warm, dark colors, and fitting hat ,so I did those for him, but he likes one more than the other. I think I will make another dark, fitting one for him.

Workshop of the hat

I have made this hat using double pointed needles size 3mm, and 3.5 mm. It is cable stitch over three stitches so I thought it is the time to know how to make cable stitch without cable needle. I did this ; it is really very good , and fast method. So I really thank the ladies who offered these wonderful videos.

Lily is going to study( AGAIN)

I am going to study AGAIN. I got MA of constitutional and political system ; I also have recorded my dissertation about Parliament role. I have quit, stopped after 8 years. I won't complete, and will return to study again , and make another research in another field. Why?
Many reasons.
First, I didn't find any help from my supervisor. I mean nothing. He didn't tell me anything , or help me in any side. In the beginning I didn't care, and decided to do it by myself-as I always do.
I have started from the scratch. I didn't know English at all, so I have started by learning English, and studied it-I am still doing that. I also have taught myself computer. I have started to read, and read about research methodologies, different methods, and which one suits mine -still doing that.
I have discovered that we have not an education system . we get nothing. Any system doesn't teach you how to think is not a system. I always read, and criticize . My father brings many , many books to his library, and when I was a child I have started to read, and read, and read. I have formed my mind in my own way, but I have gotten very bad education. I knew that before, but realized that now.
Second reason why I have quit, or want to re-study something else is,
I have discovered that we haven't a parliament. we have a jock -silly jock. It is a toy in the executive authority' hands. Nothing exist to write an article about, what about dissertation ?!
It is true that the role of parliament is really reduced all over the world, but at least they have a parliament to study its shrunken role. In another side there are some real reasons about its shrunken role.

It is like knitted piece. What you will do if you discovered that there is a mistake in your first row or round? I always get ride of wrong rows or round and amend my mistakes, and re-do it again. It is true that I lost some times-8years - but learned many things too.

Oh I want to tell you another hidden reason for my writing now. It is practicing my English lol
As you know If I don't use it, I will lose it. So I think you will have to bear my English

My father's hat

My father has asked me to make two hats for him. I have made this one for him as a first one-Hope he likes it. This hat also is my first Fair-Isle work, and following a colorful chart. I love working with colors , and I have practised the two methods of carrying yarn in this hat. I have chosen the colors too; it is different form the original pattern.

My favorite method

I prefer this method for carrying two yarns. I also like the way of carrying the yarn each three stitches ; This way is wonderful to keep the work flat, and nice too. Thanks so much for all ladies who share us their videos.

My Little little treasure

This is my first attempt doing knitted doily. I have made many many crocheted doilies I even have done a tablecloth and put their pictures in my crochet blog. . This little one is really precious to me for two reasons; first , it is my first knitted work with thread , second because it is knitted doily. I always love my first attempt doing something , and look at it as something really precious whatever I will do later.

I have made this doily using a thread size 10 and double pointed needle size 2mm. Its measurement is 8 inches across -lovely , cute, and so small. LOL.

I believe that we don't know ourselves well until we face something, someone, or specific situation. I would never think that I will love doing knitting or crochet with thread and small size needles and hooks, but when I have worked with Them I really loved this so much, and found it really amazing, easy, and fun more than I thought.

Purl Norwegain way

Continental knitting-I have never seen or known it until I had made my two socks inside each other. My mom have taught me how to knit using the English method. When I saw the continental method I like it too, and wanted to learn it. I did. Thanks for all these ladies and their wonderful videos.
