The boss has been working me to a frazzle this week. Although completely exhausted mentally and physically, I do feel somewhat accomplished having done so much. Knitting-wise is almost zilch though. Hopefully I'll get something done next week as there are two public holidays coming up: the Mid-Autumn Festival a.k.a. Mooncake Festival and the Chinese National Day.
There are lots to do for the Mooncake Festival which is on the 28th of September this year, I would love to post some photos of the how we celebrate next week. First of, there are mooncakes. Unlike Western cakes, mooncakes are more like baked buns with a sweet, usually lotus, paste inside coupled with salty, preserved egg yolk which symbolises the moon. Nowadays, there are many variety of mooncakes. Gracing this box of mooncake is Chang E, the legendary lady who resides on the moon.
Back to knitting, I'm sure you've heard lots of sock talk out there. I'm addicted too. By now, you may have already read about Nanette's September Sock Challenge and seen her beautiful socks, truly inspiring for a new sock knitter like me. I'm also going to check out her book Stranded Color Knitting. Also check out this simply amazing sock tour. I love sock #33 the best. Lynn has some lovely sock patterns too.
