フランスのお土産

e0049409_2272051.jpgThank God my mom and sis are back from France! The last few weeks without them seemed like a whole month to me. Doing all the housework, (cooking meals, making obento, washing laundry, cleaning and shopping) and brainstorming e0049409_2275640.jpgmy final paper thesis about political theory at the same time was simply tough! In return I received something really nice, all the way from France ;) Here, my aunt got me e0049409_2273757.jpgfrench cotton yarns, and also her hand-made needle case. I love them! ;) I like the symbol color of Provence city, a beautiful color combination of yellowish orage and blue. Here is another souvenir, the herb grinder. Pretty stuff!!

朝の1時間

e0049409_23423678.jpgIt takes about 1hr to get to Tokyo station by Shinkansen. During that 1hr, people usually get some sleep, drink a cup of coffee, whereas for me, that 1 hr is probably the busiest time of my day. I first have to check news (for my journal assignments)

e0049409_2343158.jpgand reading texts for lectures, finishing up homework and lastly if I have time left, I knit. It has to be somthing small, so I usually crochet small motifs like this. They are pretty and small, and I can finish them fast!

梅雨とニット

e0049409_232733.jpgEverybody hates tsuyu, the rainy season.But I kinda like it. It's nice to hear the raining sound while knitting, it helps me concentrate and also to relax.
In fact, those rainy days e0049409_23103499.jpgmy hands move somewhat faster!
Here is my latest knitting update, both not yet completed though. The left hand side pic, 編みこみ sweater should be finished in a week or so!

靴下第一号!

e0049409_2213317.jpgHaving finished all my presentation, final papers and exams, I started to knit again. I did not realize how knitting can be so relaxing and refreshing! Whatever grade I will get, I'm just happy this semester is over. So, like always, I like many projects going on at the same time. I usually have two or three projects on my needle - I have four at the moment:)e0049409_22123074.jpg
Just a thought, but looking at knitter's blogs from all around the world, experienced knitters tend to become obsessed with knitting socks. I wonder why, but I find so many of them knitting socks over and over again. Not that am I an experienced knitter but I thought, why dont I try it myself? So here it is, my first socks ever! Now I understand why they knit socks over and over again - first of all, it is simply difficult in technical level, second, it is just SO MUCH FUN, to see how socks slowly begin to take shape! So, I will probably knit socks again, just like other knitters ;)
