but no. spinning wheels are large and awkward and near impossible to take on a bus. If the unimaginative people at UC think knitting is weird, can you imagine if i pulled out horace in the middle of the refectory and started spinning away... (am actually enjoying the mental picture. if you are going to be noticed for something, better that it is your visible insanity than the size of your bosoms).
knitting is portable i hear you cry!? yes it is, but when you are on a sole project diet for reasons of guilt and persuasion.... well i have finished the back of Sophie's wrap jacket, the two front pieces and am nearly past the ribbing on both sleeves (worked together so they are even). when those are done then i get to do the ridiculously painful fringe, seam and post it to melbourne. in my hallucinatory state of denial i think this will be early next week (trips off to la-la-land). oh my lonely socks are weeping...
and yes.. uni. eeeeeeeewww.
had SnB yesterday with LOTS of newbies! its so great to take over the world, we had about 15 i think!! new additions were monique, esther, monica... there were lots anyway. its getting so its hard to talk to everyone in three hours! i took my new books and assorted sock yarns and basked in the best friends a girl could have.
in other breaking spider news, BFG has brilliantly set up my family's old computer in my bedroom... so now i am blogging from the quiet of my own bedroom. not interrupted by my dads 'hiroshima hell in harpsichord' or my brother watching tv so loud my ears bleed. Oh the joy!
anyway, no pictures today because i am a) tired, b) lazy and c) the new computer is virtually empty.
ciao for now
