Ahh the joys of a holiday

I haven't got much access to the computer or the internet at my parents in KL. When I do manage to get on, the kids are continually bugging me to let them get on it too for games etc....

We're having a great time in KL, eating too much and catching up with old friends and shopping (sadly not yarn shopping - too expensive and not that I need anymore yarn!!)

On the crafting front, mum requested that I knit her a cardigan as she had 16 balls of yarn just lying around. So what is a dutiful daughter to do, except do that!! I'm just knitting a top down garter stitch yoke cardigan. I'm at the point of knitting the widest bit and the boredom of knitting 300 over stitches for one row is killing me!!!! Not bad progress for about 5 nights of knitting.Also, I've been practising on my bead crochet, I'm making a necklace for me! Going great so far!

Devoted daughter you are! top down will be done in a snap. At least you can chat while you knit the straight garter. I love mindless knits when I am busy with conversation.

Hi Ling. Gosh, you've been busy. Congratulations on your son getting a part in the King and I!! You must be SO HAPPY!! I'm very happy for you. :)

You are a good daughter. I take ages to do things that my Mum has given up on asking me to knit her anything.

Looking forward to seeing your necklace.
