Aloha. Howz it? Yesterday our crew drove up north to South San Francisco for my second nephew’s (My SIL’s mom and aunt say he looks like me ^_^.) Red Egg & Ginger luncheon. In case you don’t know, such a party in Chinese culture introduces the new baby in the family to ohana and tomodachi. There is usually red-dyed eggs (good luck) and pickled ginger (balance) at this type of affair. I think our six tables had about nine dishes which includes dessert. My SIL’s auntie who is very verbal, funny, and knows her Chinese food said this time (We were at this restaurant two years ago.) the food was better. It was her opinion that since the popularity of Food Network, food in Chinese restaurants have gotten better due to higher expectations. We all have our favorites – Jellybean her honey, walnut prawns and me the crab – my cousin said to just put the platter in front of me, LOL (We actually brought home two take out boxes of ミ(・・)ミ.).
My mum had the brilliant idea to make those candy kabobs as party favors. She ordered candy on Amazon and picked up some more locally. She enlisted the help of my youngest aunty; my mum said they wore plastic gloves while putting together the favors. Aren’t they cute?
This past Thursday I showed off my Yule Ball sock progress for the monthly Once Upon a Sock. You can click here to read that post.
Today I show you just how far I got on Edginess. My circular needle only stretches so far; *light bulb goes on* I just realized I can probably attach another cord to make it longer – duh!
For this garter stitch section I have knitted two-thirds of it. I have 33 more rows to go before moving onto the black yarn.
Here is a close up of the fabric. I love how the black speckles are clearly visible in it. I was worried they would be far and few between. So when I start knitting in Cascade Heritage, it’ll really bring those speckles out and give me that edginess I want.
I hope you’re having a good Sunday. Man does the weekend fly by or what? Twenty-eight more days of school. The keiki and I are countin’ down here. Well, mahalo for kickin’ it with me today. TTYL. Aloha.
