Cables, not the networking kind

Moving right along to a new technique, the CK knitters have mastered cables.  Cables are one of the easiest knitting decorations to learn, but they look complicated and so pretty.  Again, this is for a our future bracelet line. In other news, the accountant called in sick this morning and I was worried about him […]

7 elephants

So since there is not much to report on the knitting front (we’re knitting, we’re waiting for plastic eyes; hearing that over and over again is sure to become dull), I’ve decided to post some random photos of interesting things in and around Phnom Penh. For those of you who live here (or have) this […]
