Running on the forest path

To start this post, let me tell you about the "forests" in Singapore. The best preserve part would be the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. Anyways, to think that such a tiny island has so much different species of birds and vegetation on it, is a little unbelievable. The Singapore Zoo is one of my favourite tourist spots, even though I stay a throw stone away from Chinese Garden. Yes I can view one of the pagodas from my kitchen windows.

Back to the knitting front, I cast on for Forest Path Stole last friday. The 20 rows of seed stitch were really tedious. When it was over, came the bottom 5 triangles, they were also in seed stitch but they were kind of fun to knit. Here's proof:

I took the whole of 1.5 days worth of knitting time to get used to the 3 charts. Fern and Lily of the Valley charts are the easiest to memorise but Birch Leaves is the hardest to get into my head. Even after 4 tiers, I still need to refer to that chart. My memory is really pathetic. I hope to finish 1 tier a day or 7 motifs in 2 days. That way, I can have it finish before August. From the way I see it, its not only a run but a marathon.
