I haven't blogged in a while and there has been quite a bit of knit happenning here. I'll start with the latest - Mimi came to Singapore! We met and chatted and went to the yarn shop, of course. And she brought me presents! A Bugs Bunny zip-up case for all my paraphernalia, Diasilkombrer, Regia and some dark wine HYX Chinese lace yarn. And not forgetting that sweet ballerina for my daughter. The ballerina is a music box and her head turns with the music. Mimi didn't know it, but I have been looking for a ballerina music box for my daughter for a long time.
Right at this moment, I'm having a bit of a breather, sitting by myself, knitting and enjoying green tea with homemade pineapple cookies (the ones in the pink paper cups) and peanut cookies from my auntie. By the way, the yellow teacup and tray are part of the tea set used for the Chinese tea ceremony at my wedding. The red (it's a darker red in real life) project here is Alex from Rowan 31. I've added 2 inches to the ribbing to avoid navel exposure. It is still Chinese New Year as it lasts for 15 days culminating in yet another feast on the 15th night. So Happy Chinese New Year to you and I hope you'll find some time to relax this weekend.
