It's not often I go out to town. I live in the suburbs, work is a fifteen minute walk away, almost everything I can't get in the nearby markets or malls, I get online. So, imagine the excitement when I got a chance to go to Causeway Bay for a doctor's appointment (how sick is that?), followed by a stop in Central to pick up some yarn goodies from Siow Chin.
It's probably safe to say that only another blogger could wholeheartedly indulge in requests for some public knitting pictures. :-) Thanks to Siow Chin for lending a hand, holding the nearly finished second Jaywalker. (I got quite a few rows done at the doctor's waiting room.) The trams, which run only on HK Island, have stations in the middle of the road, making perfect stops for jaywalkers who cross one side of road at a time. As luck would have it, I missed the nice flashy trams decorated with Paul Smith stripes.
The ifc (tallest building in HK) up close.
Oops, missed the boat! But another is coming round...
Bye, bye Central smog! That was fun while it lasted! I have to admit I felt quite self conscious taking those pictures in the beginning, plus it was tricky not having shaky one handed shots. Then I noticed that no one noticed me. :-)
Fini!! The second (bottom) sock was knit a little bit tighter because I wanted a more snug fit. (Even though I started in the same place at the stripe sequence, the heels and toes between the two socks are off by some stitches.) If the toes look pointed, that's because they are. My feet are very narrow, with very pointed toes, so I kept decreasing, until I reached five stitches per needle.
