on and on but not too much
But lo, i shall try my best.
Obviously, the rogue hoodie is complete. It is beeeee-oootiful. i keep meaning to get a photo next to one of the chinese pistachio trees in the garden (which are a gorgeous orange at the moment) but i am plagued with the eternal problemo - no-one to take the photo except at night.
I made another purple beret using a pattern from Interweave Knits. It's cute... but it was really to tide me over. I just went to find it to take a photo and the house has eaten it. Ce'st la vie, I look pretty silly in hats anyway...
I've started a new pair of socks for Sherpa (though i have to say i dont know how long he will be Sherpa. I call him Monkey so much at home that i am sure i'll slip up and make the change eventually). I'm using Grignasco Strong Print bought at Cassidy's and my boring old cable rib pattern. And as Joods pointed out, they look like violet crumble wrappers... if only the contents were so tasty (or at least fragrant!)
I cast on my Handmaiden Sea Silk as well - Another Interweave pattern. It's just a little shawl and i am knitting it quite slowly by my standards. It's so lovely I'm trying to savour it. And looks much nicer in natural light (why oh why am i such a moron?).
My copy of the new Yarn Harlot book arrived on Monday morning and i cast on today... the only pattern in the book. It's a knee rug using random balls of yarn that i will never get to use otherwise. And worst case scenario? its a scarf ;) Taph's recent foray into collage-y knitting may be partially responsible.
I also think i ought to knit some socks for my mentor teacher - she's the best one i've ever had. but what sock yarn to use?
Prac is going really well. I'm working my butt off and I'm exhausted a lot of the time but i had an epiphany this week. wanna hear it?
Yeah, i know i should probably have worked that one out by myself before now... but damn it feels good to know for sure.
Although i pick up the year 7 class this week which is modified and extremely challenging. We'll see how i feel about this profession in a couple of days?
It was lovely to see people at SnB on thursday - apologies for my sleepiness.
And speaking of sleepiness... I'm becoming overwhelmed by it again. I miss the old days of blogging when i couldnt resist blogging about every little thing. And now when funny things happen... well. I dont know how much it is appropriate to say anymore. I mean, this is my career. If i make a faux pas and it gets back to someone important I might seriously jeopardise my chances of getting permanency next year. Which is what i desperately want. Can you imagine my stash on a real income?
OK, so now my brain dead ramblings have reached a natural conclusion (ie. I cant remember what i want to say anymore).
