A little mad… February 26, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — hktimes @ 11:41 pm

Tonight i’m a little mad. Mad at life, circumstances, jobs and everything in general. I was stuck outside my own front door with 2 cold dogs for 45 minutes. Why? It doesnt matter why. What matters is that i got so mad. Not necessary at all but i couldn’t help it. I had to was my face to calm myself down. And so, i realised that i’m too stressed. I need a break, a rest. I just snapped at my dog. I’m mad again.

This week, I need to:
– run more
– breathe more
– drink my vitamins
– drink more water
– finally have my appraisel
– plan a holiday
– eat healthier ( this means no more chocolate)

This one wasn’t the easier to fit into the frame. Though the finished product is soooo nice. I will definitely make more!


2011 Knitting resolution

Filed under: Uncategorized — hktimes @ 9:19 am


I’ve been knitting in 2010 but mostly buying yarn as and when I needed it. But our recent move to a bigger apartment, made me realise just HOW MUCH YARN I have. Piles of sock yarn (admittedly I did stock up before coming to HK), cotton and odd balls of various weights.

SO, 2011 will be the year of finishing and stash busting. I promise to only buy yarn if it is for a special gift but will try to keep to my resolution at all times. I have already started the ‘finishing’ part and am steaming ahead on the Phildar Gilet Kimono. Its been in time-out for nearly a year as the pattern is just such a pain to figure out. I’ve had to restart this sucker 5 times. Now, I have the chart enlarged, every tenth stitch is highlighted and marked accordingly on the work with markers. And I mark off every row as I go. So far, touch wood, all is going well. I’m near halfway on the first part which is much further than I was on any of the previous 4 times. But I will not be beaten. HA!

Recent completed projects to follow in separate posts. Suddenly WordPress won’t let me import pics.

Merry Christmas everyone!
