Yesterday was sunny, clear, and utterly springlike in Hong Kong. After weeks of gloomy hazy weather, it's almost too good to be true and we are so aching to get outside!
Warm breezes and lovely blooming bauhinias trees greeted us along our scenic drive uphill the southern coast. In no time, we found ourselves at a quiet beach near Stanley. The waters is still somewhat chilly to paddle in so we just took off her shoes and let Jasmine played on the sand. She was skeptical at first but soon enjoying the feel of sand and wiggling her little toes into it...
You've probably seen enough of my baby and wondering by now if I have any real knitting to report... Well, the answer is yes! Knitting in warm weather or sandy beaches has never been a problem for me, as long as it's not woolly or anything huge, like Lady Eleanor. In fact, I was having quite a good productive afternoon knitting away aside a huge stone, until Jasmine finally came to
interupt *join* me with her messy little fingers.
Anyway, it's a Trellis Cardigan from Knitty that I've just started with some Dune Bouton d'Or in Thé (Tea or a pale green) in the smaller size. I'm using a bigger yarn and hopefully this would fit my 18-month toddler. Dune is a chunky weight cotton/acryllic blend at 3.5 spi, just about the same yarn that Siow Chin uses for her little nephew's knitted log cabin. I saw them on sale at a LYS for US$2 a ball and just had to grab some even though the saleslady wasn't quite too eager to serve me.
So what about my Knit-from-the-stash commitment? Game over? Not really cos thanks very much to those who have helped with my current round of Spring Destash Sale - I'm having a comfortable amount of destash funds sitting in paypal and actually planning to shop some spring/summer yarn. Some of my destash items are still available, so please take a look if you're interested. Thanks and bye for now. ;o)
