Preparing for Chinese New Year

Lots of red and gold merchandise in the grocery store, must be the New Year goodies.

The goodies are so appealing.

The store is decorated with New Year lanterns.

It'll be the Year of Horse, the number "8" is considered as a lucky number as it rhythms with the Cantonese pronunciation of "prosperity".

Carolyn's Red Angora Scarf

Carolyn has a pet English Angora from Casey, she loves the rabbit dearly, she lives indoors in her home.  Lucky bunny!

Carolyn loves to knit.   When she saw Betty's fat lumpy yarn, she is so intrigued that she bought a skein.

Carolyn used #15 needles to knit one and purl one.  It turned out nice, very thick and very warm.
