I found my USB cable - stuffed into a shoe box, under my bed where the kids have been playing a lot of hide and seek. Hmm, I guess it's not my failing memory that's to blame but inquisitive and helpful children. At least, I have it back.
Now for some photos. First up is my completed Orangina or Blueygina. (Just noticed how untoned my arms look. Must go to the gym !) It's currently unwashed and unblocked but I don't think it'll change too much. It's knitted in Rowan Linen Drape, which is a pain to knit but does create a lovely fabric. You'll notice that the ribbing is in a slightly different colour - it was a different dyelot which I didn't notice until much too late. I was too lazy to rip back and alternate the yarn. So here it is with a new design feature. I love it .
Next up is the Somewhat Cowl. When the photo was taken, I had just completed the raglan increases. In the last few days, I have joined the front and knitted quite a bit of the body. This project is just flying off the needles and I love the Debbie Bliss Cathay. The knitted fabric is so soft and yummy. However, it can be a bit of a pain to knit - slightly slippery and splitty.
Remember my Kool Aid dyeing experiment. Well I managed to knit a beanie hat for the lil man. It's not quite the weather for it, but he loves it all the same. I've now got everyone coming through the US to buy me lots of different Kool Aid flavours, or colours I should say.
I didn't manage to buy any yarn while I was in KL but I did visit the Kinokuniya bookstore. I had a really hard time limiting my purchases. I didn't really see any knitting magazines which I liked but found some crochet/toys and quilting books which I just had to have. Actually, I could have bought another 10 magazines/books, but hubby was around and he would have killed me. Thank goodness for free shipping on YesAsia at the moment.
