Since moving back to Australia, there are aspects of Hong Kong life that I miss – especially my meet-ups with other knitters and knit bloggers. I was the lucky member of 2 groups, one which met every month or so, and one that met weekly on Friday afternoons.
There are lots of after hours and weekend meet-ups in Sydney, but for a number of reasons, they don’t suit our family, and I am resorting to organising a brand-new Friday morning group. We are starting this Friday (the 13th!) at 10.30am at Bar Fresko in Gordon. I’ll be there, along with RoseRed, and hopefully some other knitters (maybe Celia?).
There are other aspects of Hong Kong life that I miss – dyeing is not as tempting when I need to clean the kitchen first – especially when I tend to make this kind of mess.
Despite the mess created, I am quite happy with the results of my recent experiments in overdyeing. When I made Isabella, I massively over purchased from Colourmart, and ended up with about 550 grams of leftovers. After overdyeing, I have these two yarns!
The purple will become a vest for younger daughter (who recently complained that she had no cashmere – someone alert child protective services). I’m contemplating something yoked, perhaps with some colourwork on it. The teal will be this lovely pattern from Drops for me!
