It's been an eventful week here in Tokyo - my good friend Cam from Sydney came and stayed with us for the weekend. He was here in Tokyo on business and unfortunately Japan showed its true colours during his first stay ever in this country. First there was a relatively big earthquake on Wednesday night (5.8) and then a typhoon hit Tokyo on Saturday afternoon/evening. It was crazy trying to show our visitor around Shinjuku in the middle of the strongest typhoon to hit Tokyo in like 10 years.
I received two fantastic packages: one from my good friend, Shirl to celebrate our engagement, and one from Julie filled with Vogue Knitting and Fall Interweave Knits AND three skeins of Katia Velour (a very exciting addition to the package). Thank you girls - you made my weekend!!
It was a three day weekend here in Japan, so I had the day off yesterday. It was rainy, cold, and overcast, so I KNIT!! It felt so exciting and fun. I knit a cute little skinny scarf using the same stitch pattern as in Carla, and I think it is going to be a present. Photos tomorrow.
