(Sorry about the lack of posts this week. We’ve been transitioning from Thailand to Indonesian, so our time online has been a little limited.)
For the last 9 months we’ve been traveling around South East Asia. It’s been an amazing experience, but unfortunately our nomadic lifestyle doesn’t really lend it self to well to crafting. I mean it’s not exactly practical to lug around a sewing machine in my backpack just so I can get my craft fix.
As a result I’ve been searching for a new craft hobby, something that’s not too hard to learn and that’s not too material intensive. I settled on Amigurumi. I found some really great tutorials online, and figured that yarn was probably one of the easier craft materials to find in Asia. Last week we were in Bangkok for a few days before catching our flight to Bali, and I made it my mission to get set up with some supplies.
If you’re in Bangkok and love anything to do with yarn I highly recommend checking out the Big Knit. The Big Knit is a cute little cafe lined with wall-to-wall yarn. It’s bright, cheerful and sure to inspire you the minute you walk through the door. There are plenty of comfy couches and a huge work table, one could easily spend the entire day creating in a cozy spot like this.
For those of you that are new to knitting or crocheting (like me) and don’t really know where to start, don’t worry, the staff at the Big Knit are all really helpful and will get you started in no time. They’ll even give you a lesson to get you started.
