It has been a bit quite here for I am really busy with.. well.. everything. I don't know, it seems I am stuck in a time sucking hole. Have to get out!
And that's excactly what I am going to try this weekend. I am going to spend the weekend at a completely remote place without internet, telephone, TV a.s.o. I do hope though they got electricity!
The good thing: I will calm down for a while, have time for reading and knitting, and be able to recharge my batteries. I am running pretty low these days.
The bad thing: I will fall more behind with all the catching up on emails and blogs and feel even more guilty when I come home.
No pressure, huh? ;-)
I'll leave you with some pictures of the finished jaywalker socks (which are going to get there real post later)
Since the needles were free then I allowed myself to cast on for a new pair. Yumm, yumm, Lorna's Laces! What a nice yarn! It is so soft and has such a nice shine. Definitley not a knitting while watching TV yarn - I can't get my eyes off it! I knitted in the bus, though. And the ignorant (or shy?) other commuters didn't ask at all what it was. Though I overheared some old ladies talking about knitting Christmas gifts for their granddaughters. Shouldn't they be interested in such beautiful yarn. Specially, since one cannot buy it here? Strange.. I would have asked.
The pattern I am following right is called "Mata Hari Socks" from craftoholic. Unfortunatley, the PDF link to the pattern is not working, that's why I have to imagine how it works from the given pictures. But go there anyway and check out the hilarious knitted Oktoberfest set!
To my Sock Scrap Pal: I did not forget to mention your parcel, it still hasn't arrived :-( You are not by any chance from the Pitcairn Island? [scroll down to 'by post'!] Oh, no, it's me who lives at the back of beyond. We'll just have to wait a little longer.
