I do had a lot of pictures stuck in my camera. I would try my best to post the pictures here. I had visited Night safari on one of the previous sat. It was fun. It was hb's first time there too. ;)
Despite being busy, I continue to knit too. But at a slower pace, I doubt I can finish my icarus for lacevember but one good news is I am moving onto chart 3. Yeah!! I had also cast on christmas projects (But i would post them only after christmas.) :) My yarn stash is growing rapidly nowadays. Faster than I can knit. Think I would implement yarn diet soon. hohoho
Time to head from bed. More pixs would be posted soon. This weekend I think.

The most important condition is the places should not have any television. I realised that having a television in front of me meet my speed reduces greatly. I simply cannot concretrate well. The number of errors increases too.
Another condition would be a nice and comfortable chair ;)
