ON MY NEEDLES

Ariel Socks

So far, the Ariel socks are playing nice, but they’ve been slow going.  Things are looking up since I purchased a nice, bright headlamp at Decathlon, a store similar to Academy Sports. I actually was at Decathlon to get a new water bottle, which I did, but apparently the placement of impulse items is universal – right next to the cash register.  That bit of extra light has made a big difference, I got through the first pattern repeat last night without problems.

I’m also working on a Leksak sweater, though I find the rows and rows of stockinette boring.  It makes for great plane knitting, I’ll give it that.

Leksak

ON THE WHEEL

Not a thing.  While I’m in Bangkok, I have to be satisfied with surfing Pinterest and making endless lists in my head of glazes and techniques to try.  That reminds me, I need to order clay.  I’m thinking that if I order now, it will arrive in Little Rock about the same time I do.

FIELD TRIP

Here are a few photos of Iconsiam, a new mall here in Bangkok that has a replica of a floating market on the bottom floor, with traditional Thai food and crafts vendors, most wearing traditional Thai clothing.  Really, the photos don’t do it justice………..

Knitting

We Made It!!!


WE’RE HERE!

Right at this moment, Mr. iknead and I are in Bangkok, Thailand, yes, you read correctly, Thailand, one of our very very favorite places on the planet, even with the 30 or so hours it takes to arrive.  We’re so happy to finally be here, spending time with the Bangkok branch of the family.  FUN FACT – Because we cross the International Date Line, we left Little Rock early on Wednesday, April 4 and arrived in Bangkok in the early, early morning hours of today, Friday, April 6.  So, we lost Thursday over the Pacific.

Here’s what a lazy Friday afternoon looks like in Bangkok….

The Papoose and her book.

Preacherman naps

We lunched at Coffee Bean by Dao.

Very hip, very upscale….like yours truly……😋😋😋  I had squid ink pasta in cream sauce and giant prawn.  Words fail me as to the deliciousness of this dish. 🦐🍜
