I had to start a new project. I had nothing to knit. My green crochet bag is stalled because I ran out of yarn. I won't have time to go the the yarn shop till next week at the earliest. And, I can't knit my peach sweater either because I brought it to the office, thinking that I could knit a few rows during lunch. Guess what? I never seem to have time to knit on the days when I lunch in my office, because that's when I am busy trying to catch up on some work. It has been sitting on the floor under my desk for weeks and I keep forgetting to bring it home. So, you see, I had to start a new project to knit at home.
This new knit is a lacy cardigan from a Japanese RichMore magazine pattern. I am knitting with Noro silk garden that I bought years ago in Hong Kong. Gauge is spot on and I think I will have just about enough yarn. Knitting with Noro silk garden is a bit like knitting with string. Reminds me of knitting with Jaeger trinity yarn, excpet that silk garden is thicker than trinity. And, I'm not sure if it's my imagination, but I feel like I'm breathing in fluff or something and my throat gets kind of dry.
Does knitting make you hungry? Well, I got hungry and I had to fix myself a snack between meals! Liver pate topped with an egg. Yum! I added black grapes to make it look more healthy.
Since I am showing you food pics, here's last week's dinner. Spaghetti with capsicum and button mushrooms in leftover bulgogi sauce and teriyaki chicken on the side.
We make a sauce with whatever is on hand, from rummaging in the fridge while the spaghetti is cooking. The trick for us is to add lots of chopped garlic. Have I mentioned before that we love garlic? Yum!
Hope you are having a good week, I am looking forward to catching the next episode of my current favourite Korean drama! an yeong haseyo!
Edited to add: Fall Knitty 2010 is out! The Brambles hat and Ringwood gloves are my faves. What's yours?
