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.Uni
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.Knitting
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.SP6
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!
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.
