I haven’t entered a post lately. We had so much going on between our short yet long travel to Asia, coming back to a family reunion with 25 + family in town (that will be my next post) and the kids’ summer activities. The trip to Singapore was a long haul – a 22 hr travel time, 18 hrs up in the air. Thought I’d be able to finish knitting my Summer bolero being on such a long flight, but, unfortunately I wasn’t able to do so. The on and off turbulent flight got me hanging onto my seat for dear life >,< which made me unable to concentrate on the lacey pattern. It amazed me how my hubby was able to sleep like a babe in dreamland during our flight. Me on the other hand could not sleep on planes. I stayed up reading Time Traveller’s wife by Audrey Niffenegger. Watched Hunger games twice and 3 foreign films (thank goodness for subtitles). We finally got to Singapore and being my first time there, I did not know what to expect. The City was insanely clean ( remember chewing gum is banned in the country). It is modern, safe and efficient. People are genuinely nice and very helpful. There was no traffic! Why is that? I continued to knit as we got there. Knitted by the pool and at the wee hours of the morning because of jet lag. I also knitted on the way back home and still havent finished the project. It seemed to me i have knitted so much on this trip but did not make a dent. Anyhow, here are some pix on the trip. Wish we could have explored a little longer, but so glad to be home with the kids. I will post my FO (finished object in knitters world) when it gets done. When will that be? I think I need to search for a new project! Ha!
Always knitting…even in Asia. July 20, 2012
