I can relax.. a little

For the first time in the last week or two, I can relax, just a little, but I don't feel like a wound up spring anymore. Okay, maybe that isn't entirely true, but you know, when you're like a wound so tightly, you can't just relax all at once. It takes time..

Work hasn't really slowed down much, and I don't think it is going to - not yet anyway.

I have handed in two assignments this week. I was in a hurry, it's not my best work, but I hope I pass. I really don't want to have to go through these two subjects again. I really don't.

After this I have two major group projects to complete and then I am done for the year. Can you say 'yay'? I feel like I still feel like I am chasing my own tail with one of the projects. I never realised it would be so hard to find information about the company (they aren't being the world's most co-operative) and about Hong Kong.

Not much has been happening. I am knitting the second of the pair of Skinny Dip. So far so good.
Also knitting the peacock plumes bolero from Elann. I was part-way through when Elann put up the patter for the kimono sleeves. I worked out I liked it better. So I am extending the sleeves so that my bolero will have long wide sleeves. I hope to get some knitting done this weekend and have a bolero to wear next week...

No pictures of knitting or spinning for now.. maybe later in the week.

I received an email from Fiddlesticks saying that my secret pal had paid for a pattern for me and all I had to do was choose one. Hmm.. like it's easy - it's not. Have you seen the Fiddlesticks patterns?? I want them ALL!

Okay, after much mming and aahing, I have narrowed it down to a few patterns - Lacy Lattice Stole, Lily of the Valley Stole, Garden Stole, Tina Shawl, Lotus Blossum Shawl and Inky Dinky Spider Shawl. So, people, cast your votes. What do you think? I love themm all and can't work out which one to choose. I have miles and miles of laceweight I can use, I think, so that isn't a problem.

Thank you SP6! You're so kind!

Other stuff
We, as in Chris and I, are going to watch this on Saturday. We're really looking forward to this. I can't remember the last time we went and watched something. Oh wait, I do remember - it was the Soweto Gospel Choir performance.
I like the 'Lacy Lattice Stole' and the 'Tina Shawl' patterns best.

Have fun at the Opera House on Saturday! :)

I like the Lacy Lattice Stole best. Good luck making your decison.

And WOOHOO on the yarn arriving. I'm getting giddy!
Well I really like Lotus Blossom and Lilly of the Valley but when I saw Inky Dinky I went *oooooooooooooooo*, yep, that's my favorite hands down.
I agree with Julie - Inky Dinky is beautiful - though my all time favorite Fiddlesticks pattern is the Flirty ruffles shawl - I have the pattern and will be looking for they yarn at Rhinebeck this weekend.
tina tina tina!
Knit tina. :D
hmm, a toss up between lotus and spider. my mind boggles at even attempting any of these so i will live vicariously through your crazy shawl mania ;)
See - I thought you would have that problem - how exciting to be able to choose - have fun. Will be checking out the results. SP
