Just in time for summer-Alpaca Knucks!

imageedit_4_8453582234

These Knucks are my first completed knitting project in Taiwan. Made out of Alpaca they will be toasty warm in winter months. I started these when it was so chilly in our apartment that I was wearing a sweater and long underwear. It’s April now and the days are only getting warmer so they will have to wait awhile to get worn.

I’m super happy with them. This is an excellent pattern and the yarn is super soft.

In gluten free news I found a delicious bread I can eat.

Heitong Gao ie Black Sugar Cake is made with rice flour and brown sugar and can be found around Taipei. Super delicious and check out this texture:

So yummy. Plus it’s great to take a break from cooking and just buy some bread from a street vendor.

Exciting news! I’ve started my International Internship at the Taiyuan Asian Puppet Theatre Museum. Right now I’m helping to prep puppets for an upcoming exhibition in South Africa. I got to assist sewing these beautiful puppets to be displayed.

These lovelies are both Taiwanese shadow puppets.

Josh and I recently returned from Tainan. We saw a spectacular puppet show by the talented Goodoo Theater. Their show Heart Sea Fantasy was phenomenal and we will be featuring them in Formosa Moon.
