Autumn is here!

It is very chilly here this morning. So very refreshing and invigorating. I have been knitting; I put my Evenstar to the side this month, but I did finish a hat, and I started another shawl for a KAL that started last weekend. I used Blue Moon Single Silk for the hat, it is so soft, I just love it.

Chart three of my Evenstar is taking forever. I looked at my chart, realised that I had a 4 row repeat for 24 rows of 560 stitches each, and died a little bit. I like it when the pattern changes every other row, it keeps me engaged in my knitting. But I’m nearly done, and hopefully I will be done soon. I signed up for an In DreamsKAL (a shawl by the same designer as Evenstar) that starts…

Guangzhou day twenty-five

Quiet day, so it’s just a knitting update. I finished chart two, after wasting many about 5 days correcting a very stupid mistake on my part.

Guangzhou Day five

Very humid, so of course we aren’t doing much, which means I am knitting in 45C heat. Still fun though. We went for a walk, got lost, got heatstroke. Not much accomplished at all today.

Today: more rain. So much rain. We are surrounded by sheets of rain.

I finished chart one of my Evenstar shawl, which it seems to me is the simplest chart by far.

Guangzhou Day one

The trip went pretty smoothly, except for some meltdowns (by a toddler, so it is to be expected). We arrived exhausted, of course. I spent most of today jet lagged and so I slept most of the day. I woke up just before supper and Fei had already gone to meet some friends, so we ate supper at the good restaurant near our house with the rest of Fei’s family. Daphne…
