..

It's February already.

Knit-wise this year has started off fairly well, I've got 4 FOs in the bag, all being put to good use. Two scarves, one sweater and one hat. Thank God for a satisfying winter this year.
I wanted to post pics of the FOs but really couldn't bring myself to take any good ones.

Another reason being that I lost my beloved camera on a terrible night that I discovered a revolting secret about the company I used to keep (sorry I'm being cryptic but it's also such a burden that I had to blog it out). Y'all would think I'd have been devastated but instead I was glad not to have any memories left of that night and was finally able to think of the whole experience as cleansing. Good spin on a bad day no? Thank Heaven I had just retrieved all my pics earlier on!

Big plans had been made for regular blogging this year too but unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances, I haven't been able to get down to it.

Mum's been terribly ill and it's been disheartening at home.
Ever since I was little, she has been the pillar of strength. She single-handedly took care of my brother and I and also our Dad too since he was gravely ill and not even once did we ever see her cave under the harsh reality of our lives.
But now, the tables have turned and seeing both our parents so frail is terrifying. But we pray, asking for strength and miracles, because we have faith that things will be better.

Hope y'all have a great week.

Wow. February and already 4 FOs? Nice. Hope things get better. I find it scary to think of my parents really getting old, too.

Hi!
Thank you for leaving the message. :D I am sorry that your mum is not well. My mum also was a very strong person but right now she is unwell too. I can totally understand your feelings. I hope everything will be better and I will be praying for you :D
You mentioned about the Japanese instructions. I can definitely have a look at it. There should be my e-mail address for you to send me the info (e.g. scan).
Sorry I had to reply through commenting on the blog. I could not find any other way of contacting.
Look forward to hearing from you soon. Have a great weekend! :D
