knitting and the life I almost have around it

...and that's a wrap, folks.

Yes, correct, wrap jacket is complete!
Finished her yesterday night while watching House (yes, that was an irrelevant detail) and the photos can be explained like this: the slightly grimier shot was taken by he that is stinky last night. He has rather a shaky hand for a 17 year old ( i attribute this to many things but will spare you in the interest of brevity) and this was the only half decent shot to come out of the whole shebang. I have used in in the interests of showing more flattering (smudgey) lighting. Also, my other photos are freaking blogger out for no apparent reason, so i must reshoot them. Damn.

My apologies if i look a little unimpressed... it's been a long week and my face just looks like that anyway :P

As luck would have it, after a week of 20 degree springy days, today was a windy 14. So i did have to wear a jacket over my wrap, which was slightly disapointing. This is the sort of wrap that should be thrown over a floaty and romantic summery frock, and as soon as i get one and it warms up a bit i'll post some new pics.

In business news (?), i gave my presentation today and got a Distinction. Can't argue with that now can you? Particularly considering i did it the night before :P. now i get to try the same trick with my psych essay (shudder). Have done a fair bit of reading, but the proof of the essay's in the eating (or so they say).

Back to the jacket. I know that there are women in this world who are far more attractive than i am, but in this jacket it doesn't feel that way.

Sing with me "i feel pretteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee"

    Can you make some booties for my kid? you still owe me two pairs of boxer shorts - dont think I forgot ;-) - those red shiney ones still get a bit of a run. Together with the matching suit (and with nothing else) they work fantastically in a romantic fantastic elastic sextastic.

    congrats on the D - I got lots of D's in highschool, and people said I wasn't doing well!

    p.s. Cambodia Rocks my Socks!

    if your socks are rocked, do you still need me to knit booties? For an unconveived child? In a hot country?
    I still have the boxer pieces cut out and pinned in my sewing box - are you still that skinny?

    I am now size 32-34 so a bit fatter.
    I was kidding, so dont bother. Make them for someone else ;-)

    About the kid - not conceived but planned in the near (10 year) future.
