To start off I want to say that Cambodia is by far, my favorite place of the places I have traveled. The people have a kindness likened to the Thai people and the landscape is lush and diverse, but I found that the strength and resilency of the people was most moving. I wanted to learn more about what had happened in this country just 35 years ago. What I found out amazed me and spawned a thirst for more knowledge.
Our trip began with us landing in Siem Reap after having spent only a few short hours in HoChi Min, Vietnam.
So it seems the hottest days of summer have passed, well, my fingers are crossed. This means that I can break out my knitting needles again and resume my guilty pleasure of making bags among other knitted projects! I just couldn't bear to hold wool yarn in my hand or allow it to sit on my lap in order to knit a project during the most beastly days of summer. Instead I sipped lemonade and made cucumber water while basking in the sun on my apartment rooftop. (A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!).
So here are some projects that I had finished at the beginning of the summer. I think I may just make more of this bag because I love it so much and just bought some lime green yarn that would look awesome with creme and purple!
