Mother's Day weekend passed by quietly amidst more packing. This time, it's husband who attacked his books with a vengeance. He's very affected by nephew's condition and I encouraged him to do something else to keep his mind of it. We are doing whatever possible we could for sil and bil to lessen their load, but then again, there's really nothing we could do to ease the unfathomable pain and fear, of seeing their very own child suffering. I sincerely thank you all for your kind thoughts and wishes for nephew.
I can't believe it's already Wednesday until I got a phone call that the aerobics class has formed and will start tomorrow. At least something to look forward to. My stash is now more or less organized. I've some fabrics (some big, some smaller pieces) to give away but need time to take photos and measure them before posting here. There are some Japanese knitting books to go too, here or on the Destash Blog later.
Some crocheting here and there on the capelet, which hopefully will be done by next week. I've got some knitting to report, thanks to colleague, O, who knits. Here's the story.
Me to JY and CY while showing them a bag or yarn: Here, choose a colour that you like. My friend is going to knit you two each a scarf.
CY didn't seem interested and ran away.
JY: Ooh, I like this, mummy.
Me: I thought you said pink is yuckaroony?
JY: Yes, ….but this is not PINK. This is LIGHT RED.
So here it is the light red Bow-knot Scarf for JY knitted by my colleague, O, who has an afternoon to spare while attending a school function for her son.
And then she knitted another smaller one for CY in a lovely dove grey.
With a little yarn to spare in each colours, I crocheted flowers to attach at each scarf. I used this pattern for the crochet flower but stopped at Round 2. The yarn used is the same cashmere as CY's Superman Scarf.
Also, check out this nice grown-up version of the bowtie scarf.
And a beautiful variation.
There's also a pattern here for one in thick yarn.
