About Wify

"Dear book, This is another day in my life. A life is like a book. A book is like a box. A box has six sides. Inside and outside, so, how do you get to what's inside? How do you get what's inside, out? Once upon a time, there lived a very pretty girl, who lived in a beautiful box, and everybody loved her...." GMC

I did, I did, I won!

Standard

OMG, I cannot believe it! A month ago I entered a knitting contest on Deviantart… and guess what, I WON FIRST PRIZE! Yuhuuu!

For this contest they were looking for anything beach, seashore, or nautical, beach-y, summery colors, animals that live or spend part of their time on the beach, seashell and nautical sailing motifs, etc.

I closed my eyes thinking about the contest’s theme and a romantic dinner heated by the dusk popped into my mind. I immediately picked my needles and my favourite yarns and this is the result:

N2L Seaside Goodies

A Dominican beach, a glass of red wine and the love and company of your other half.
The foamy little waves colour the pink shiny sand into a creamy beige. Algae complete the scenery like a diamond necklace completes a stylish evening dress.
Red, orange, pink, a touch of mauve and a hint of green… the sun is setting.
Close your eyes, can you picture my evening?

A. The N2L Shellfish Backpack Keyring

A very practical keyring, a functional backpack and a cute item to have.

This is not your usual Keyring, it is an actual mini backpack. The finished product measures 10 cm/ 7.5 cm and it can fit all sorts of individual “must haves”: a full size lipstick, an inhaler, a lighter, your hotel magnetic card, several folded notes etc.
Cherry on top, you can use the straps as a belt loop.
Personally, I would attach it to my bathing suit.

It is a fairly easy project that you could finish in a weekend.

B. The N2L Shellfish purse
A functional little purse that will become your most precious item on a night out.
When I go clubbing, I do not like carrying large purses on the dance floor. This little shell proved to be very practical for these kinds of situations.
If worn on the wrist the pearl strap will look like a bracelet and the shell will hang just enough for you to feel it in your palm.
It is spacious and it easily fits several notes, a couple of coins, your lipstick and even a mini perfume. The gap between the closing pearls is small enough to make it safe for you coins.
Last but not least, it is a stylish accessory that will complete your evening outfit.

Patterns now available on Ravelry and in my Etsy shop!

Last but not least, Thank You to all of you out there who believe in me!

Knitters Wanted!

Standard

wanted

Hi all,

I am looking for knitters to review my patterns on Ravelry and Etsy. In exchange I will offer 20% off on any of my designs.

All my patterns have already been tester both by European and American knitters, so this is not a pattern testing.
As a designer, I am quite new on Ravelry and Etsy and I would like to make my patterns known. A pattern becomes popular when it has comments, stars, pictures, favourites, people talking about it. And this is what I am interested in.
You can chose any pattern you like and I will send you a 20% off coupon code. As well, you can review as many patterns as you want and the discount will apply for every purchase.
There is no timeline , but it would be great if you could finish it in a week. All my items are small and therefore quite quick to knit.
Once you have finished it, please put your pictures, comments, start rating, difficulty level etc on Ravelry/Etsy. (You do that by linking your finished items with my pattern).

If you are interested, please let me know which pattern you would like to review and on which site and I will send you a coupon code.

Thank you in advance,
Alexandra Sim

Get lost in the fire!

Standard

Have you ever loved someone so much that you got lost in the fire?

I have! And I am still lost in the fire, it is still burning, more and more every day. I wake up before you and I secretly reminisce all the lovely things you said, you did and you made me feel the day before! I light a match every morning and my fire is growing growing growing!

Barbie by Nothing to Laughing

Standard

Yes, I am still a child and YES, I bought myself a Barbie. Ok, there are two valid reasons behind my purchase: 1. I needed a Barbie to see if my keyrings can be used as Barbie accessories (and yes, they are BBy accessories!); 2. I wanted to design some OOK dresses for my still favourite doll. You should have seen my face when I opened the package! A child bouncing around with a Christmas gift :)) So here is the result: OOK dresses!

Enjoy and spoil your inner child!

I missed you!

Hi all,

Yes, I know, I have been kind of absent, but for a good reason. I was really busy designing some cool useful stuff for you, my dear reader. You can find my designs in my new page called “N2L Designs“.

I like it, I love it, I enjoy it, so you can be sure that all my designs are made with love and with you in mid. But let’s have a look!

n2lpatternsYou can now find my patterns on Ravelry, Etsy and Cfratsy.

I hope you will enjoy knitting them as much as I enjoyed creating them!

Swedish Family Bootie Pattern

Swedish Family Bootie Pattern

Yarn, Books & Roses

Wow. This week I was definitely stuck in the baby bootie knitting rut. I went ahead and made two more pairs for friends of my original customer; kind of a ripple out effect. While I was making them I realized that while the pattern is pretty simple and straight forward, it is hard to visualize what is happening. So here is the pattern, exactly the way that it was taught to me, with picture support. The booties in the picture are being made on 2.25mm double pointed needles with Broncos Football colored fingering yarn that I bought at my local yarn store. In case you haven’t guessed, this is Broncos Country since I live in Colorado.

Cast on 10 stitches. Knit each row (this is garter stitch) until you have 18 ridges on each side.

This little rectangle of garter stitch will become the sole of the bootie. Like those Bronco colors? This little rectangle of garter stitch will become the sole of the bootie. Like those…

A red, red rose

Standard

By Robert Burns

O my Luve’s like a red, red rose, 
That’s newly sprung in June: 
O my Luve’s like the melodie, 
That’s sweetly play’d in tune. 

As fair art thou, my bonie lass, 
So deep in luve am I; 
And I will luve thee still, my dear, 
Till a’ the seas gang dry. 

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear, 
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun; 
And I will luve thee still, my dear, 
While the sands o’ life shall run. 

And fare-thee-weel, my only Luve! 
And fare-thee-weel, a while! 
And I will come again, my Luve, 
Tho’ ’twere ten thousand mile!
