Finished knitting my pullover!!!
Don’t think I can debut it until winter which is kind of a shame but it’s my own fault for taking so long.
The blocking process went a lot faster this time around. I could have used better schematics (only had length from shoulder to hem, width of sleeve, and width of body at underarms) but there hasn’t been a project where I didn’t feel this way.
On Saturday I had dim sum (or yum cha) with the family.
For those that don’t know what it’s like, the food sits in a cart and gets pushed around all the tables. If you spot something you want you wave the cart down and the food is brought to you.
Below are some of the things we ordered–chicken feet, fried squid, and various dumplings. With chicken feet you’re constantly spitting out cartilage and bone. Most don’t mind but when I ate meat it was too much of a pain.
Another two dishes worth mentioning are pig blood and pig rectum. The blood is coagulated and served in cube form while the rectum is sliced and served with veggies (below). From what I hear both have a very strong taste.
If you ever get the chance to have dim sum, go! They do have more normal things like shrimp, veggies, egg rolls, or noodles. I just picked the weirder things to share.
