I have been so wiped from school. It’s finally reading week, and I’m…trying to catch up on work. Seriously, I have no idea how people go away for reading week – if I went away for the week I’d been way more behind! Not to mention the fact that I have a test on the first day back.
I’ve been taking the weekend to kind of chill out, though. Sleeping in, eating, knitting. My wheel’s down at the store still so no spinning, but I hope to fix that up soon!
Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Tuscany. This is only the first sock – I’d intended to gift these during January, maybe, and now I’m rather worried that they won’t be done before winter is over!
I don’t care how many people are whining about the weather, I like the winter and feel gypped by this particular season. I’m sad it’s going to be ending soon – usually by this time of the winter I am sick of the slush and snow, but since it didn’t snow until January (and I went biking at new year’s) I’m really not ready for it to be over. Also? I don’t think you should complain about the winter if you live in a place that, you know, gets winter. If you hate it all so much, move somewhere warmer! It’s used to be much colder in the winter (I remember going skating in -25 C weather and that was only a few years ago) so we’ve been pretty damn lucky that it’s been so warm this season. /end rant
Ahem, where was I? Right, socks. My sock mojo seems to have been missing the last little while, but I think a new sock in Colinette Jitterbug is actually helping – I really want to knit it! Photos of that one to come.
I’ve been working on a sample sweater for lettuce knit – the Jane Origami Pullover from Handmaiden, in a pink/brown colourway (lightbox success!).
And! I have an FO to share. Soon. I should probably be finishing up some of them heavy-winter type garments soon as well…
