Another destashment

Keep a lookout these 2 days for another destashment. I had been looking at these yarns for the last few hours and still clueless to what I will make out of them. Taught myself a lesson of Buying Without Plans. Moreover, I need to liquidify the yarns for my recent membership fee.

Since my last update, I have 2 FOs, a shawl and a pair of socks. The blocking wires had been busy so did the darning needles. I blocked 3 shawls and seamed Minimalist Cardigan. I thought I do lost a bit of my mojo. Hope to be back with a WIP report soon. Meanwhile, I need to destash.

They are starring back

Yes, they are. And at me. I have knitted them and left them aside to start others. I've just laid out the Minimalist Cardigan on my bed. It just need to be seamed. (Charmaine, where are you!!??) Next are the stole/shawl to be blocked.

Queen Anne's Lace
Reversible Ribbed Stole
One more to the list is the Cobweb Lace Shawl, which I had grafted both ends together this morning. I need more room in the house to block them out one by one.

Show Mi Again

Unfortunately I won't be attending her concert this year. Look at the date, it falls right on my wedding. I'm telling myself not to miss her next concert in Hongkong.

Seeing Red

I had been nursing a bad flu for more than 2 weeks, so knitting is on low gear. Started Orchid but seems like there's something that I can't understand. Hopefully someone is working on it on Ravelry. Hence I cast on another lace shawl, nothing wrong with the pattern but the yarn stained my finger nails just hour knitting continously with it. Above all, I'm finally taking a long deserved break after inservice for the company. With next to zero income, I shall be able to watch my yarn diet very well.
