German lessons

Ich bin Jade. Ich komme aus Singapur. Ich wohne in München. Ich spreche Englisch, Chinesisch und ein bissen Deustch.

As you can see, I have already started my German lesson. The first lesson is all about introduction. Saying your name, where you lives and what languages I know. Yesterday, I had my second lesson where I learn to ask for directions as well as give directions. The teacher thinks that I am progressing very well. Well, I think I can read better than I can speak. Pronouncing some of the words is killing me!!! Oh well, I will just have to work on them by practising more often.

And I am finally knitting again. Yeah for me! I tried to squeeze in as much knitting time as I can. I went to London recently and surprise, surprise, I came back with some Rowan Cotton Glace which is on the needle now on its way to being transformed into a pink Orangina soon.

I have also made great progress with my secret project. I will unveil it in my next blog since the intended recipient already knows about it.

Next up, my friend asked if I can knit her a cropped cardigan. I sort of said yes and had been half-heartedly trying to find a nice enough pattern when I stumbled upon this. Isn’t that absolutely gorgeous? I think I will make that for her but with a much longer sleeves. I am going to see if I have anything in my stash that will work with it (probably not since she asked for a white one and I don’t have a lot of white yarns) and might start on it soon.

I finally unpack my yarns and was so sad to see that the bottle of Soak Limited edition that I got before I left the US is almost empty. The cap was either not closed properly or the pressure caused it to be dislodged, it has been dripping out of the cap slowly over the past 3 mths such that only a qtr of it is left now. =( Thankfully, I have all my yarns in Ziploc bag so nothing was ruined. I just end up with a box of nice smelling Ziploc bags. Oh well, such is life.

ETA: I just saw this at Eunny's blog and I am totally sold. This is going to the top of my list of must knit. Gotta knit faster!!!

Oh, no, not the Limited Edition! :(
Glace is the yarn I used for my Orangina and it worked perfectly.

Thanks for linking to that pattern. It's beautiful.

We miss you!!

Can I still get the limited edition? Is this something I should be adding to my "what to pack for Jade" list? I am finally getting my act together and looking into plane tickets.

That's great, sounds like you're a very quick learner. Sorry to hear about your Soak bottle, good thing all the yarns were safe.

Can't wait to see you knit the cropped cardi, looks very pretty.
