Looking for The Restart Button

I have stopped knitting for almost a year.
I never intended to stop permanently, but that's what happened.

So I moved back to my parents house, I packed my knitting tools and all the yarns.
And I haven't start to unpack after all this month.
I feel guilty if I start knitting when I haven't finished my animation.

By the way, I have a very creative sister, everyday I enviously watch her creating something (mostly using papers, but sometimes she crocheting too), please check her instagram to see her creations.

while me trying to find the restart button, to start moving, or at least start living.

Hello May!

WHAT?  time goes by in a blink!

I knit something but haven't finished it, and I wonder if I ever finish it.
why pig has 4 legs and a pair of ears?
I'm too lazy to following the same pattern for 4 times.
ah, sorry for complaining.

by the way. I'm moving!
not this site.
I'm physically moving to another town, back to Bandung! Yay!

Bandung has cooler weather, which is better for playing with yarns,
I don't know if I would really start making things cause there's a lot of things to do, like unpacking.

I started knitting/ crocheting 7 years ago because my brother was getting married,
then I stop knitting/ crocheting 2 years ago because sister was getting married.
I hope it was just a myth, so I don't really stop knitting permanently.

Hello 2015


and thanks for checking this blog and reading this post, while me rarely update it.

Happy New Year, all the best wishes for you and your family!

this is another post about how I miss knitting & crocheting but I wouldn't do it even if I do have spare time for now.

I'm currently working on a personal animation project. it's personal, but a lot of people involved in this project so better stay focused just for a couple more months.

I will certainly be back. not soon. but I will.

Bear Family in Wonderland

So it's happening again, the days when I suddenly got nothing to do (except my daily job).
It could be a good time to make an amigurumi or two, but I don't.
Cause after these days, I will be very busy working on a very ambitious project for the next 6 months, so I take my time doing nothing.

Few months ago I brought Pinkong to Bangkok.  i just remember that I bought her eyes from Bangkok (etsy store).  Thai people are very creative.  Actually I saw a lot of amigurumis in MBK and Asiatique (a modern floating market).
I didn't take any picture of the Thai amigurumis because I was in a hurry.

But of course I always have time to shop. I bought an amigurumi book for my collection. Too bad I only bought one so I can't make a giveaway quiz again.

The book is written in Thai letter, but there are some diagram, so it's pretty easy to make the doll based on this book.  I don't know whether it is a translation from japanese book or not. I just think it would be a nice collection.  It's full of cute bears  just like the title :)

Another Trip with Choco-Strawberry

Can you guess where we are?

And of course I stop by to buy some books 

Meanwhile.... If you can guess where am I going,
You can win a crochet book!!!

Only 1 winner with Indonesian address could win this book :)
Since the book is not written in Bahasa, I hope the winner is a crocheter who can crochet with limited instruction.

The contest ends at november 6. Be spesific, since I will pick the winner just based on the answer ;). 

I will post more photos for the clues, so you can do some googling, cheat a little bit :p

OKAY! The contest is over. The winner is obviously Pratiwi Weyanti (really, it's okay to cheat, as I suggested to do so) I will send you the book soon :)

Kopas The Thief

I almost always making the amigurumi version of my animation character.  If you wonder what am I doing from May to August, the answer is finishing "Kopas The Thief" animation project for the ASEAN Animation Festival 2014.
(yeah... finally I can blame Kopas for making me missing my blog)

The amigurumi was not required, but I made it as a lucky charm.  You can read more about the animation on the other blog.
I made it a few days before the proposal deadline, so instead fixing my proposal, I knitting this doll.  In the end I never show this amigurumi to the audience because I used the wrong yarn color and it's not really similar to the character design.  But I think this amigurumi is really a lucky charm, cause later I went to Bangkok twice and I *beeep beeep beeep beeep* at November 26th thanks to this animation project.

:p  well just wait, you will see what happen at that date.

UPDATE August 25th 2015: nothing happened on November 26. actually I was invited to some kind of ministry event (Indonesian) but later they didn't contacted me about the details. I don't know what happened.  who am I anyway?

The missing months

this is another "lame excuse for not updating my blog for months"
so July I went to Bangkok, then spent a month at Jakarta finishing an animation, then went to Bangkok again at August.
at September I was finishing an animation for side project, finishing some proposals, then suddenly got an idea to make another quick-short animation.
When September over, all I think was taking a break. a short break, because another project will start soon.
it would be an ideal time to crochet something if only the weather is not this warm.  The temperature can reach 35 Celcius in Jakarta.  and I don't use Air Conditioner, only electric fan. Go green (NAH... I just don't want to spend more money)

I only have one free week.  instead of updating my blog, I... bought a PS Vita. Okay, I'm guilty. I confessed.
