A break before I sum up May's knitting progress.

I almost forgot about my photos on account. It's been a long time I guess. And I discover I've grown so much.
Taken in 2004, with a bunch of my Taiwan associates. It was freaking cold on a late October night.

The pup was trying to poopoo. Look at its face, all scrunched up.

Taken during my Bangkok trip in Nov 2004. This is time stamped too.

And I miss this cheap and good Japanese restaurant at MBK call Zen.

Knitting news will be right back very soon.

9.5 Miles

That's a total of 15.37 kilometers worth of lace weight yarn. I can knit like 10-13 shawls with them. Like yesterday, I had collected a list of patterns. Most of which are free patterns, I hope. (Some might be from Ravelry downloads)

- Print O' the Wave Stole
- Hanami - I will only knit the basketweave section.
- Secret of Chrysopolis - I thought this was one of the better mystery lace KALs pattern.
- Hanging Garden Stole - The only thing that's stopping me is the number of rows 1 repeat has.
- Cobweb Lace Stole - this was queued the moment I got my copy of IK Spring '08.
- Queen Anne's Lace - I have this pattern lying somewhere.
- Lattice Lace Wrap - another basketweave type of pattern.
- Faux Russian Stole

23 pairs of socks

That's how much worth of sockyarn I have in my stash. Its staggering to me, as I'm not an avid sock knitter like Adrianne; I do not always have a WIP sock. I really need to pare down this huge number.

First off I need to plan which to use. Probably I will use stuffs like Wollmeise, KPPPM , cuz I have extras. I think I will leave 1 of each for keepsake. Once yarns are used, they are no longer yarns, they are FOs.

Patterns in random order:
- Monkey (i must be the last one to knit this pattern)
- Toe-up Monkey
- Mockery (I like Katie's Drache too)
- Fluke
- Pablo Blue Socks
- Twinkleberry
- Crystalline Lattice
- Cross Country Socks
- Spiral Boot Socks by Veronik Avery - I have the exact yarns waiting for me to knit them up.
- Bayerische Socks

Lack of love

Not for my DH but for this blog.

Lots had been going on, tied up with Knitpicks sprees and local knit outs. It was nice to put faces to the nicks I saw in the Singapore group on ravelry. Being a knit out organiser is both sweet and bitter. I don't think I want to go into details on that, it might get political. With the impending WWKIP Day on 14th June, I'm wondering how would the turn out be. Well, the size doesn't matter, does it?

This blog is lacking lustre, readership has drop at least 40%. I can only blame myself on procastination. Hoping that life doesn't get busier than this.

Thanks to B for getting the color cards below. I thought the colors look more real than the swatches on screen.

1. Knitpicks Shadow, 2. Knitpicks Shadow, 3. Knitpicks Shadow, 4. Knitpicks Gloss Lace, 5. Knitpicks Gloss Lace, 6. Knitpicks Gloss Lace

I'm on my third scarf, Lacy Ribbon from Knitty Spring. Hope to start Jarrett or even a sock very soon.
