Gearing up for Ravelympics

So, again the wrap I've been working on is pushed to the back burner, because it's almost Ravelympics time! I'm on Team Merlion and my goal is to finish a pair of socks. I'm going to use this yarn, Dream in Color Smooshy in Romeo Blue:

And I'm going to use a pattern from Wendy's book.

I haven't even wound the yarn yet though, and I've got a big sweater project to work on, so finishing this one pair of socks will really be a challenge. Even the mass cast-on is going to be tough for me to make since I've got some non-knitting plans this weekend.

Anyway, I realized how much I missed a certain tool that I gave away when I moved, and I finally replaced it. Behold, my new scale:
Since I don't have a kitchen it's only half as useful as my old one was, but it's still really handy for things like halving a quantity of yarn etc.

I went back to the Orchid Gardens this weekend, and also went to a seaside park on the east end of Singapore. I have to go a little out of the way to see nature here (it is a city of 5 million people after all) but it never disappoints:
