I’ve been knitting a little more than usual recently, but the knitting “mojo” is almost gone now. I surely wanted some of those nice little notions sometime when I was knitting. Meanwhile, another me kept reminding myself of the limited space in our apartment. Hopefully I didn’t expand my stash and my tool kit too much.
On the other side, for a little more serious knitting project, say a garment, there are some really necessary tools, e.g. stitch markers and stitch holders. Without any stitch markers, I may have to count the same 100+ stitches over and over before carrying it on. I have a yogurt bottle to keep scrap yarn I got from the projects. No matter how short the yarn would be, I keep it. Whenever I need a marker, I simply pick a piece distinct with the working color and tie a slip knot onto the needle or a stitch so it can be taken off easily later.

I am so exhausted after a whole week going back and forth between two countries. This weekend has to be work-free! Therefore, I carried on with the project I started this week on the train. It is probably going to be my largest knitting project if I can finish it, but who knows how long it would takes. I am also not sure whether I will dare to wear it or not coz I don’t really like the color. 0.39 cent for 100g acrylic yarn is a little hard to resist.

Finally, I survived from the exam week and started packing for the LONG vacation. I cannot wait to see the families and the friends. Hopefully, the unusual heavy snow won’t be so much trouble for us.

I’ve written two exams and there is only one more to go for this year (there are 4 more in January.). I am sorry that I couldn’t reply any emails/comments and that I’ve been invisible from IM’s lately. Thanks for the nice comments, nice emails and nice messages to me!

Do you know what is worse than being stuck away from home? The answer is being stuck away from home and losing the internet connections all the time. That is my weekend. The internet stopped working on Friday night. After the connection is back to work on Saturday afternoon, the signal remains unstable. Even right now, when I am typing, I got disconnected from time to time, which is extremely annoying. Besides, I accidentally deleted several movie files I haven’t watched on Saturday. This morning, I was waken up by three girls talking loudly in the corridor. I tried to take a nap after lunch, but I was waken up 20 min after by a girl and a lady who seemed to be her mother talking in the corridor AGAIN…..I really tried hard to enjoy the lonely weekend here, but miserable things don’t go away.

I had several deadlines, several new tasks and several meetings in two cities this week. It’s great this busy week is going to the “end”. And, it’s great I can finally talk about my crafts.
Some were wondering how I can put my yarns into a bottle, while some even thought I bought such a bottle of yarn as a whole. Well, I wish there would be such things available here, but the truth is it’s something everyone can make. Continue Reading Drinking and Knitting…

I took the pictures on Tuesday morning but didn’t manage to type anything until now, now even a short post. And…..this post will be short.

It’s so quiet this morning. There is no so much noise from the trains as usual. I almost started to wonder if the GDL already started their strikes. Hopefully, they haven’t YET. Maybe people just don’t wanna go out so early because of the temperature drop overnight. We can finally expect a real winter this year.
I didn’t have a nice sleep last night. After some weird nightmares, I got up and waited for the sunrise. Only after the sunrise can I take photos of the little toy I made before I went to bed last night. It’s a bunny, a typical quiet creature.
