Orange Socks Friday

Yay! Finally, I have finished Andrew's Orange Socks for Orange-Shirt-Friday. As Costumechick said, it was like knitting 2 sleeves... But they are done, and Andrew likes them.

I also finished the Mystic Water Shawl. I did the small version. I like the pattern, keep me awake the whole time. Love the zephyr lace yarn too. My cousin Blanche told me that Yi Ma, her mom, my aunt after reading my blog, she saw my MS3 and really liked it. I seldom talk to Yi Ma honestly, but she is one of the most important people in my family. She flew all the way from Hong Kong to attend my wedding which I was really appreciated it. When I went back to Hong Kong to visit, she offered her house for us to stay. We said "no", then she offered her son's extra apartment to stay for 2 weeks... She is always there when my family need help, ALWAYS. Since I am not going to knit another MS3 anytime soon, this MWS will be hers.

Last weekend, Andrew and I went to my in-laws' house. They had a huge picnic on Sunday. Andrew and I were standing behind the grills and cooked burgers and hot dogs. We enjoyed doing it since we didn't have to "socialized". hehehe... After eating, of course there was a tracker trailer ride and baseball game. And while my job was done, I was enjoying the nice weather outdoor by knitting Andrew's socks.

Before we left home, we went to see the bridge that my father-in-law built for his neighbor. It was quite a big accomplishment, such a BIG project!!!

You're such a generous knitter! What lucky people. Your shawl is beautiful. I can't imagine parting with it!

Now go knit something for yourself!
