Out of hibernation...
I'd like to have been in hibernation, but I've been researching and writing my dissertation and working on the design for the Centre for Constructed Textile Crafts.
Yeterday, I studied in the library from 8am-5pm, then did a shift in Debenhams until 10pm. It took me until almost midnight to get back home. I slept like a baby, until I was woken by a knock on the door this morning. I waited for Nick to answer the door. He didn't. I *ran* downstairs and opened the door to the postman who gave me this parcel...for me!Inside the parcel was this:
And inside the box were these:
An early Valentine present from my Mum! Ah, my parents send me the *best* presents! One year, my Mum sent me perfume, chocolates, a bouquet of flowers and a pair of pants (not sexy ones!) Who needs a boyfriend with a Mum who sends presents like these?!!
Thanks Mum! xxx
Now for the knitting update. Hmm, there really hasn't been much time for knitting recently. However... I have finished Loopy and Luscious! I don't have a photo, but I'll post one as soon as I've taken it. The frilly tank is coming along nicely. It doesn't have a frill yet, and it isn't staying as a tank. I've decided to knit sleeves with a frill around the bottom of those as well. I have two and a half balls of yarn, so I'm going to start the sleeves at the shoulder and knit them as long as I can with the yarn I have. I have a photo of the tank on me, but I'm not posting it as without the frill it is ever so slightly pornographic and I don't want a repeat performance of corset-gate.
Anyway, this is what it currently looks like, along with the kidsilk haze which I will be using for the frills.
And I've knitted about 5 rounds of the sock since it was last posted. Hmm, that's progress, lol.
