New Me

Haven't blogged for loooong time. I have been busy, with what? I don't know, but definitely not knitting.

I got a haircut 2 Saturdays ago. Then I surprised Andrew when I picked him up at the airport when he came back from AZ. I IMed him right before he got on the plane that day "I haven't seen you for so long(a week), would you still recognize me?" he IMed me back "Of course I would!" And then I saw his eyes got really big when he first saw me at the airport. Hehehe...

July 4th weekend

I know, July 4th was long time ago, but I have been busy(lazy) that haven't had time to write.

So, hubby and I spent the July 4th weekend at my in-law's house. There was a almost-60-people picnic that hubby and I helped out grilling burgers and hot dogs, of course that's my favorite part, because it would keep me busy and didn't have to talk to anybody. hehehe...

After the picnic, there were some cupcakes left. Andrew asked me to take one for air gun shooting, we didn't waste food, it's just that the cupcakes were covered by flies after the picnic... The pictures below was my first shot at the cupcake. The video below was me shooting the cupcake. It was so much fun!!!

Couple of days ago, we found a weird looking melon thingy in a grocery. It's called Santa Claus Melon. It looks like a football shape watermelon, but it's greenish inside, tastes like cantaloupe plus honeydew, very interesting.


As for knitting, I am still working on the Minimalist Cardigan for my friend, I am knitting the fronts now. And the Spring Forward Socks. I haven't been knitting since it's very hot in the house, really don't want to touch any yarn at all...

Ice Cream Swap

Yay, I got an awesome package from my ice cream swap pal. This is how it works. I just this swap, and I told my pal what my favorite ice cream is, then she prepared this package with my favorite favor as the theme. My favorite ice cream is red bean, so I got some red, pink yarns. I love the wrapping paper and the fingerless mittens that my pal knitted for me. The most awesome thing in the package is the red bean candy, I just kept eating it after I opened the package. It tastes just like the red bean ice cream, yummmmm.


Last week, I didn't knit much, but I have cooked and baked. I have made pound cake, and used the strawberry leftover to make strawberry shortcake. It's ok...


I have knitted my first color work project. The Herring socks. Well, it wasn't a successful project, it's way too tight. Maybe it's because the way I carried and switched the yarns is not corrected. So, I frogged it...


Next project, Spring Forward socks. This is the first them I knit 2 socks at the same time. It seems fun...


Happy July 4th!!!
