we all drove out of the city and into the countryside.
If you go for about two hours, you end up in Tibet.
Mountains, lakes, trees, rivers...
I felt as tired as all get out,
but I still took pictures--because how can you not?
They hang these flags at the mountain passes;
they have prayers written on them all over.
They believe the prayers go up each time a flag flaps in the breeze.
That's Qinghai Lake--quite the tourist spot for locals.
Somewhere in the middle there is an island where thousands of birds roost.
I, of course, did some knitting on the drive.
I finally figured out what to use that lovely white wool on. The pattern is free on Ravelry, and it's really well-written, in my opinion. Although, I might get brave and try to add some sleeves if I have leftover yarn. I'm a sleeves gal.
By the way, if you ever come to China, this yarn has beautiful stitch definition and cost me about 3$ USD for at least 700 yds, if not more.
I also discovered zentangling on the web and did up a few little sketches.
I won't post those yet, though--they're a little rough yet.
Also, if you want to test knit, send me a Ravmail or leave me a comment with your e-mail!
I need a couple girls who like heels to preview my socks pattern. :)
And that's all for now, lovelies.
Go enjoy your October day.
