So I started my long summer holiday. Everday I knit, watch Chinese episodes, work a bit for my garden, and go to supermarkets. Last week I finished a first aid tranning course. This week I volunteer for University of Toronto's Space Design Contest. Meet new people from around the campus and other universities. err... kinda fun..
These days I knit no personal stuff. My projects are all from Lettuce Knit. I knit as fast as possible every night and finish an average of one project per week! Today I went to the store and took pictures for my knitting stuffs displayed there. Hehe... They are just gorgeous.
My 4th project for Lettuce Knit will be the Fairy Net Blouse from Interweave Knits (the latest issue).
I am not sure whether other people notice that the quality of Interweave Knits is getting worse ad worse since last year (I mean both the knitwears featured and the quality of the photos). The photos are very very dark and blurry and the colours are not "natural". I decided not to subscribe it after the fall issue.
The Fairy Net Blouse will be knitted in very fine and delicate silk alpaca yarn from Misti.
Lettuce Knit is a warm and cozy place to go and shop! The lady in front of the door is Megan, owner of the store.
A bolero in Needful's "Geranium" (50% linen, 30% acrylic and 20% viscose). Pattern from Needful's latest issue. (My third project)
The drop stitch shawl in Misti Silk Cotton (75% cotton, 15% silk). Pattern from Stitch Diva Studio.
p.s I enjoy reading Chinese ancient poems from the Song Dynasty （宋詞）。Yesterday I found a really good one. If you can read Chinese. I am sure you would like it too. 昨天我讀季羡林的散文聼雨，裏面摘錄了一首宋詞，是蔣捷的虞美人～聽雨，我很喜歡：
