• Childhood memory—Yarn

    Last month was a big valentine’s day. I’ve been thinking a lot. What can I do for my boyfriend? What’s the best present for him?

    Sweet memories came back to my mind. The first time we were dating, in dim light of a cinema, he held my hands. We didn’t say anything, just looking at each other gently. A Warm feeling fills up with my heart. I believe this is destiny. We fell in love!

    He treats me as a princess, accompanies me whenever I need him .we read, we cook, we sing, we walk and we talk. A smile always hung from my face. God knows, in the past, I’m irritable and depressing.  He always tolerates all my shortcomings, and leaves the best things to me.

    Well, you would ask me, what did I make for him? Yes, a scarf. I knitted a yarn scarf for him which means I want the scarf wraps around his neck for the whole life. He used to tell me, when he was a little boy, his mum knitted various yarn clothes and hats for him. He has a special feeling for yarn. Maybe yarn represents the love of his mum. Childhood memories are wonderful. I will also make some yarn clothes for our future baby, hoping that he will enjoy living in a pure and soft yarn world.

    Happiness is simple. Don’t try so hard, the best things come when you least expect to them.

  • The Winter Knitting, The New Olympic Game

    Hello, everybody. Happy New Year.

    Yesterdays I happen to see news about The 22nd Olympic winter games, the title “snowboarding or knitting Finland” interests me.

    Look this green guy, hi, what is he doing? He is knitting the yarn. So funny it is! Look at the yarn on his hand, it is very similar with Charmkey Chunky Yarn. You can just go to charmkeytextile to see that.

    The most feature of Charmkey chunky yarn is that he is super super soft, heavy and warm. Sometimes girl would knit the sweater for their boyfriend or your parents, a warm gift.Warm to baby’s skin.

    Another feature is that the yarn is very cheap, many people can afford it. These days the weather is very cold and it is snowing in Shanghai and all of the world. I am beginning to knit a sweater for myself and now I can choose the color I prefer. You can also try.

    By the way, Charmkey Chunky yarn has many solid colors, red, white, black, sky blue, baby pink, orange. You can find the color you like. Look at his hand, the cream white is my prefer color.

    The yarn is very easy to work up. It is very happy when you make up one scarf, blanket or sweater by yourself. You will be proud of yourself. Let us knitting.

  • Shoes and socks?

    Winter is coming , the weather gets colder and colder.
    Always at that time, Mum is worried about me, because I like bare feet walking on the ground.
    Mmmm , Mum selected the charmkey acrylic hand knitting yarn(blue, pink and purple). As I like pink, my mum likes purple and my father likes blue.
    She is always thoughtful and considerate.
    As I remember the poetry “I cannot remember my mother”—by Rabindranath Tagore
    I cannot remember my mother
    Only sometimes in the midst of my play
    A tune seems to hover over my playthings,
    The tune of some song she used to hum while rocking my cradle.

    I cannot remember my mother
    But when in the early autumn morning
    The smell of the shiuli flowers float in the air
    The scent of the morning service in the temple
    Comes to me as the scent of my my mother.

    I cannot remember my mother
    Only when from my bedroom window I send
    Into the blue of the distant sky,
    I feel the stilness of my mothers gaze on my face
    Has spread all over the sky.

    I love my mum, hot sweet love to her.

    Look, it is very beautiful and lovely knitting acrylic yarn patterns. I love them. Just like socks and shoes.
    What a warm and lovely gift at this cold winter.

  • I love knitting! Memory with my mum.

    Hello, everybody. This is Yuki from Charmkey. I have been working in Charmkey for about one year.

    One year ago, I was just graduated from the university and as an intern student working in Charmkry for three months.

    When I first went to Charmkey, I was amazed by such lovely guy—yarn balls. They are very lovely, having many different colors, super soft feeling, gentle to the skin. Besides, I saw many knitting yarn I have never seen in my life.

    In my little memory and my childhood, I have always seen this kind of yarn balls and seen my mum knitting wool sweater, hat and gloves for me in the winter. I still remember they are very warm I can feel the love from my mum.

    Also I still remembered that my mum always let me help her to winding the yarn. It was a very hard and long time work for me. First, I was very interested in doing this job. After, I lose my patience and went to play .Because I felt acid with my arms. But my mum was still winding the yarn by herself.

    I had to admire that I was so naughty that time but are you naughty in your childhood, aren’t you? HAHA…

    Moreover, in the winter, my mum would knit slippers for me every winter. I was so proud of my mum.

    Is it very nice right?
    When we first saw these yarns we think it’s very beautiful and very creative. The original shape of this yarn is a 25kg cloth. We cut them in many small parts and rolled them into a ball. Yes. You can choose colors from original clothes. There are more than 30 types color card for you to choose.

    Why the yarn comes out? One of my customer send mail to me his require he want to knitted bags and he want to feel warm and fashion .so I decide with our design department. They try T-SHIRT clothes, but they think it’s too thin. So we try another fabric. It seems more strong and fancy.

    Now, this yarn is more and popular with my clients.
