Knackered, frankly

That pretty much sums up my week. It has been stupidly tiring, and I can’t quite put my finger on why. Must be to do with using my not-so-lively brain… Apologies if I haven’t replied to your comments this week. Said brain means I have no idea who I’ve sent emails to. I also want to thank you all for suggesting emailing Brittany for replacement needles. It is still a job to do on my list, but it will get done soon. Brain hurty. Need to brush up on library school stuff like cataloguing and classification. At least my reference enquiry skills are good because I’ve used them since graduating, but I just want to remind myself of what to do on the others. That means a glance through the wonderful AACR2 (concise version). It is quite complicated to read through, but the anal part of me LOVES it 😀 Not today though. Brain still hurty.
So, in order to justify an update and give you something to look at, here you go.
Anastasia socks, finished at last! Love the yarn (White Willow Yarns Alice’s Garden – available on Etsy. Thanks again Brooke!), love the colours in it, it is warm and soft but sturdy. The pattern is fab too – very easy to follow, good relaxing knitting, but interesting enough to keep you going. Good thing too, as my Conwy cashmere socks are now in need of repair – the yarn is obviously a luxury one, not one made to go in shoes etc, and I’ve worn them so much that last night I discovered small piece of fluff in my slippers and a hole in one sock heel 🙁 I’m not going to make a fuss and mend them, as I have plenty of yarn left of the cashmere for another pair, and the Conwys were always a bit too big round the leg and foot. I think it will either be Poseidon or Widdershins socks with the leftovers. And Ruth R will be getting the remnants of the Alice’s Garden to play with because 1) they smell of raspberries and 2) Everyone should try this yarn.
Next up, a baby cardi from Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino 2 (the moss stitch border cardi, as it is imaginatively known), for my friend Nic and her baby daughter.
Hopefully at some point there will be an action shot… 🙂
Only 6 more projects to go, and 2 more gifts to start. :S

  1. oooh, pretty socks, and what a gorgeous cardi!
    I like cataloguing and classification too – a lot. It is what I want to do (so why do I hate my cataloguing module so much?)

  2. Pretty socks, and the baby jacket is lovely! I hope you get over the tiredness, stepping out of the daily grind is often the best remedy but not always easy to do!

  3. Ooooh – lovely socks! Looking forward to getting the leftovers! Hey – good shoes too! Where from? I have my eye on Clarks “Bake” style in brown (from Schuh online), but yours are much shinier… Conwy bagginess? You know, mine have done the same and I used Lornas Laces – I thought my problem was that I had knitted them very short – but maybe it is the pattern. Shame cos I like the way they look…

  4. Pretty, pretty socks!! I too, love the shoes…I’m coveting them from afar 🙂 I apologize for being terrible about stopping by. I’m having a bit of a time adjusting to the single-motherhood thing and am finding my time all consumed…I do send big hugs your way, though and always smile when I read the comments left for me 🙂

  5. Gorgeous socks. That pattern is about to be knit for my friend for Christmas. I love your shoes too!
    That cardigan is gorgeous too. What a lucky baby.
