A big thank you to you all for the kind comments on the babies and the dress, I'm truly touched! I can't seem to wipe that silly smile off my face these few days despite an intensive work schedule, horribly hot and smoggy weather (it reached 37 deg. celsius yesterday!) and an eye infection.
After the euphoria from finishing the baby dress, I got back to knitting Charlotte's Web. I'm now about to start stripping in the 5th colour. I wish I could show a more interesting photo but the stitches are all cramped on my 60cm circulars which is holding its fort. The shawl still looks predominantly green. I'm hoping the 5th colour will make some difference to it. The colour sequence has been nagging at me but I'm going to carry on and see how it will turn out. Now I've to think about the blocking. Where and how am I going to do it? Our flat is so small, we don't have a spare inch.
Check out these recently launched crochet books: Family Circle Easy Crochet and Vogue Knitting - Crocheted Scarves. The designs look really interesting especially those made up of motifs. Talking about pattern books, my dear pal, Connie, who lent me her pattern book for Chung Yi's dress, gave me 2 Japanese magazines today with lots of fabulous designs. We had wanted to meet up tonight for some crocheting but my parents-in-law left this morning for their holidays in Hokkaido so I had to go home right after work to look after my two monkeys. Tomorrow is a holiday to commemorate the handing over of Hong Kong to Chinese rule which took place back in 1997 and I'll be starting my leave but knowing my children, I won't have much time for the computer and knitting. I'll try to take some photos from those two Japanese mags in daylight and share with you all before we leave for Singapore.
