Knitting fun -- HK style

My last day in Hong Kong I was able to get together with the Hong Kong Kniteratti... fun as always!!! This time there was the biggest crown I've seen so far!! We met at a large Starbucks and knit for HOURS!!!

Look at the size of these needles!!! I think she was using Rowan Big Wool. Can't wait to see the FO!

I walked away with 6 squares knit by these lovely ladies to donate to the blanket project (THANKS LADIES!!!!)

Next we went to a number of yarn shops. I, being on a yarn diet, bought only yarn to give as a gift and yarn for a project on the plane home (can't fly 16hrs projectless now can I.)

Marjorie, Susan and I went out for some Shanghai food followed by some amazing XTC Gelato -- WOW is it yummy!!! From their website..."XTC gelato is an Italian-style artisan ice cream. Our gelato is hand made in small batches with fresh ingredients and is 100% natural." We shared Hazelnut and the Valrhona in one cup (together it tasted like Nutella!) and we tried Kalamansi (lime) and Ginger Cinnamon in the other --- so refreshing! There are a few of these shops around Hong Kong -- put it on your list if you go!

Thanks again ladies for such a wonderful time... hopefully next time I'll get to meet Joy (who made a lovely Navy square with a beautiful eyelet worked heart in the middle!) Home to NYC tomorrow!

Hi Kimberli, looks like you had a blast on your HK trip. Me and 13 family members are going to spend a week in NY in December. Do you purchase your show tickets from a specific ticket broker? We are looking to buy tickets to see the Lion King, and need the cheapest we can get our hands on.
