Its been 3 weeks since I’ve posted anything…sorry I’ve been busy and not to mention I have been MIA on having a phone, which kind of makes things a lot better for me. No stressing, no drama, nothing unimportant taking up my time…only what is right in front of me.
My family and I will be making a big move from Korea to Nebraska in a week or so.
Yup, 23 hours with 4 kids, a dog, and a man-child. So I have everything prepped for their entertainment but now I am left wondering what should I do as entertainment…of course knitting but what? Have been hearing that the weather is drastic where we will be. Here it gets cold but never lower than two digits…however where we are going it’s down to singles and negatives.
Which reminds me, I finally finished up my Antler Cardigan and just in time for the weather.
I added these awesome wooden etched buttons I found at a textile store here in Korea. However, after blocking it seemed as if my cardigan got a bit larger but I don’t care it’s sooooo comfortable. I have been thinking of knitting my next project on queue ravelry list, but I don’t have the needles…:(
I sort of pick up some projects along with the one I am currently working on. But it’s winter and Christmas is just around the corner. Currently I am still working on my ultraviolet Antler cardigan. I need a few more inches to attach the sleeves and then getting it done.
Then I picked up another crochet project. I’ve had this yarn for months and it’s super soft so I started crocheting a Purl Bee pattern.
I’ve also been doing some last minute Christmas gifts and Christmas cards.
So as you can see I’ve been a busy elf making sure that everything is getting done. I have also gotten the kids to do a few things too.
They made paper ornaments and decorated the Christmas tree.
Well better get going. There is a lot of big fluffy snow that need tracks on.
Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve posted something other than Instagram pictures on my Tumblr. I have been a busy bee…well sort of. I am still working on my purple cardigan and I am almost done. I am so surprised that I have been able to commit to one project rather than having 3 or 4 projects going on. I have been enjoying the fall here in Korea.
I have also been taking care of my little one who has been really sick so he has had all my attention. So it’s been sleepless nights and tons of coffee. But not all is restlessness, I have also been active in the kitchen. I’ve been baking green apple pies from scratch.
It has snowed on and off so I have been trying to keep my family’s bellies warm by making our Mexican tradition arroz con leche.
Well I must go, my little one just woke up and I need to continue knitting so I can post pictures of my finished project here soon. Will post more soon. :)
So as many of you already know I am participating in the Westknits Mystery Shawl KAL 2013: Color Craving and it consists of 4 different clues every week. First clue was on September 13th so I started a bit late due to medical reasons. But thankfully I just finished clue 1 and I am about to start clue 2. However I need to hurry cause clue 3 was already sent out this past weekend. Either way just wanted to update you guys on how clue 1 looks like. I will continue posting on my progress.
My life right now is a complete fog…so this song is my most played out song on my list. So as the song says…I’ll just “jump into the fog” as see where this road is leading me to, cause only one person knows how much of life I’ve been having.
This song reminds me of my dad…not the whole song but the part where she sings.
"I have died everyday waiting for you, darlin’ don’t be afraid. I have loved you for a thousand years, I’ll love you for a thousand more."
I always loved my father, no matter how cruel he was, and no matter if he didn’t love me back. I thought that I would be better by now but I’m not. There were so many unanswered questions…so many things I wanted to know…and now…I am left in the dark wondering why and yet I still love him and miss him.
