I'm not dead

I just havent done anything interesting lately at all. Have finished the majority of coursework, dissertation and essays are in, now I'm just plugging away at the project so really nothing going on.

As for the knitting, its still going on, I got me some shiny ravelry progress bars that means things should stay more up to date. Progress is fairly slow cos I'm lazy.

But i do have an FO and a half, someone my dad knows had a wee girl and he asked me to knit summat so i did:

Seamless baby kimono from here, in sirday supernova chunky, I love seamlessness, its my new best friend. I knitted this in a couple of days, woulda been less had i not been out mosta yesterday celebrating my friends engagement.

I also started some socks for the baby:ok thus far sock, because apparently this pattern hates me i really kept arsing it up, hopefully the second one will be better now i kno what I am doing, i knitted the garden in between socks cos i was using 4 inch DPNs which were giving me stigmata!

so there we go, I'm still here...

Christmas knitting in February??

Yeah i know its Feb why am i posting Christmas knitting? Cos i didnt get it finished til now? nope the knitting was finished on Dec 23rd. Mainly cos i am lazy and didnt get round to photographing til last week, and i dd some tinkering with it after i gifted it! So here we are the only other piece of xmas knitting, also for my dad cos i didnt get him a birthday pressie

Lug flaps for his cycle helmet! he cycles to school most days on his crazy electric bike, and you know its winter and its cold!

The yarn is random aran stuff i got at New Lanark and the pattern is here, they were a bit on the large side so i felted them which has the bonus of extra toasties.

So what else? went to Inverness in a blizzard last week, which was nice, went to a shop that puportedly sold yarn (it did not) was mainly patchwork stuff but they had a sale section so i got some fabric to make me (another) knitting bag:

Sheepies!!! SHEEPIES!!

I did some knitting in the car:
The start of Anemoi Mittens, ooh they are brain melting!! will take a while (prolly finish them in June when one really needs mittens,...)

So what else am i knittin? the WIPs arent totally outta control which is good
One sock yarn clap (yes i sucumbed to the disease, but given its so long after everyone else does that make me new and cool?) All the increases and one set of straight rows done)The on going DNA shell thingamawhagy, also fairly brain melting especially when you dont pick it up for weeks and have no idea where you are! but its progressing

Now i must write an essay and a dissertation, fun for me!
