I'm still here

Yes it's been over a month since my last post. It's not that I haven't been going to places to eat, nor does it mean that I haven't been knitting/crocheting... I just haven't had the appropriate time to blog about them! Internet's been a bit iffy at home and I try not to blog too much in the office!

On the knitting front, I am currently knitting the Mistaken Pumpkin - with the Mistaken shawl pattern by Kourtney Robinson and two skeins of Pumpkin Latte superwash merino wool in fingering weight by The Plucky Knitter. Quite a bit of modifications to the pattern, which calls for 12mm needles vs the 4.5mm that I am using. Had to double the number of repeats on the main pattern and I am now on the edging, while I will most likely double as well, depending on how much yarn I have left.

I have been busy crocheting bags with the intention of selling them in church some time in future. I initially targeted the SFX Family Day in mid July but because I didnt have time to make as many as I wanted, I've decided to sell it some other time - maybe Christmas. No specific pattern was followed, mostly I came up with them myself.

Recently completed FOs also include my Black Purl top, a crocheted top from one of my Japanese pattern books and Lorna Laces Swirl DK in Black Purl. Really love it - finished it in about a week - so enthusiastic I was about it!

Food-wise, I need to start uploading all my photos!! Eep....
