i can be crafty.

blue sky alpacas

i'm easing back into the craftiness with a little spot of knitting. i've bought a mess of blue sky alpacas sport weight yarn that is light, bouncy, softy soft with just a touch of scratchiness. the colours are tropical, i suppose, but i think i'd like to introduce a little more of this warm texture into my home. antoi is still the main craftswoman in these parts, check out her mainlandia blog.

manila: inspiration from an unexpected bonus view.

makati fireworks 4

i had no idea how great the view was from my new pad in makati until new year's eve; from the living room i can see the distant fireworks set off along manila bay, but from the bedroom windows i have a nearly front row view of the ayala/makati display. the fireworks are so close, in fact, that the concussions rattle the windows in a most alarming way; if you did not know it was a holiday, this--along with the billowing smoke from the explosives--would make you think there was a war going on outside. yeeps.
