Generally exams were ok, hopefully i shall pass them all. It did strike me the other day that i have done all my exams with the same pen, right from Standard Grades to all the ones I've ever sat at uni, is that strange? Its a pen my dad's friend, who died earlier this year, gave me years and years ago its almost like a little tribute i suppose anyway its not very exciting but here it is:
As well as exams I've been doing me some shopping! Firstly i bought a new stash box cos the ones i had were rather full I nearly spend £80 on a proper wooden pirate style chest but decided that would be foolish and wrong so i spent £17 on this one:
Already filling up
Then i bought things to fill it with. First i was at home and went to New Lanark where they make there own wool and i got this lot:
The red and black is bound to become this
and possibly a jumper for my mum the grey will become this for madam demando.
Then the new knitty came out and i decided i wanted to knit these which called for a trip to John Lewis to get the wool, while there i had my usual rake in the bargain bin and found a ball of RYC soft tweed in lilac and offered to knit my mum a hat with it which is why i have these:
As you can see the xmas knitting is progressing, I now have a full 2 weeks for solid knitting, or at least i did until i got a phone call telling me i was getting the new Zelda game so thats the knitting down the pan.
You may have guessed by now i have a lot of knitting planned, shall we list all i plan to do? lets why not!
Christmas knits wise i have 3 to finish and 2 to start (oh yes i got told the wool for one of them may not be in before xmas so its on hold)
- Chunky print jumper of own designing
- off the shoulder top from Simply Knitting
- Long gloves in kuryon
- fetching in multicolour peter pan
- cabled beanie hat
- Pirate bag
- Dream swatch scarf
- Twinkle Toes
- R2D2 hat

I think thats everything i may be wrong, and no doubt the list will be added too!!!
