This past week has been good. Jan came here and we had a nice time. We did usual stuff, and we visited a new restaurant: Taj where we ate mjummy Indian food (oh, the memories… England… THE Indian restaurant…) and we ate Chicken Vindaloo – veeeeeery hot! amongst other delicious Indian recipes (Please, do order Garlic Nan – you’ll love it). We did some (window) shopping, walked around, had fun in all.
On the knitting news: I’ve got pics of that already (nearly) finished Checkerboard Scarf for a yankie friend of mine:
I also took a pic of the Windy City Scarf in progress (already switched colours):
And then, I have to show: the socks my mum knit for me! They’re made in Opal Carnival (for those of you that are a clown like me):
More news are I don’t have 550 grams of that knitting roving silk, but 1036 grams, cause my lovely boyfriend bought me a second batch on ebay. So I will have more than enough for the Clapotis and what not! I want to get some book on dyeing yarn, perhaps, so I don’t screw this silk… Any recommendations (on dyeing, and on books for dyeing)? And I got my new shiny new Addi Bamboo circulars, 100 cm long, for knitting that baby blanket. \o/ *cheer* I will start it soon now!
PS: Jan is coming over again SOON! WOOHOOOOOOO
