Too much work!

Arrrrghhhh! I am sick of essays 🙁 2 days of over Christmas, and the rest of the time has been spent writing assignments. Well, not totally… 😉
I finished knitting Freda, my free weekend kit from the Rowan subscription, and I looked rediculous in it, so I frogged it. I’m now using the frogged Cork, plus an odd ball I had on the cheap from Up Country in a different colour for a shrug from So far it looks rediculously long, but I spose I can turn up the arms a bit if it is.
Got my copy of Rowan magazine 36 today, so naturally I am itchy to work on something else already. But I also have my Maya scarf to knit up, some socks, and a jumper that has been on the sidelines for ages… Considering that I have made another felted bag in Kureyon, a cloche that is too tall in Magpie, have still not sewn up Sarah’s bag, and have promised a scarf as a post Christmas pressie to someone else…
Also had the joy of two poker sites posting pretend comments. Thank goodness for vetting them!
Well, at least I’m off work for a few days anyway. Hope everyone had a nice holiday, and all that jazz.

Another big gap

But that is because I’m overloaded with other things to do. I have essays due in in a month, so funnily enough I’m working on those! Plus I’ve been to lots of Christmas get togethers 😀 Yay!
I have had time to do some knitting though. I’ve shrunk my mittens again, finished Shirley’s scarf, even if I need to send it to her still (eek!) and it is rather yummy. With the rest of the Kureyon, I made a bag from Felted Knits, and chucked it in the washer this weekend. The yarn felts nicely, but I think it might need another run as it isn’t really very solid yet. One of my Christmas pressies was a subscription to Rowan yarns and patterns (thanks to the DB’s parents for that!), so I’ve started the Freda poncho that I got as a free joining gift complete with the wool to make it – yay! Although it looks a bit odd at the mo… My lace knitting is not good. I’ll post pics at the weekend, as I can take them in decent light that way, and it might even be finished by then (it is a quick knit). At the moment I’m lucky if I see the sun during the day, as it is dark until 9ish am and from 3.30pm. Yucky winter, but at least we get some light!
