my weekend totally ends on monday night
Its true, the way everythgns worked out this semester I have no lectures on a Monday, which stretches the weekend out beautifully. Its been a quiet one here, studying, knitting, hanging out with friends and finishing it all off with a quiet one at the pub last night. My kind of weekend. That said, its been a pretty productive one too...
You may remember that I mentioned I was knitting a shawl? Which I finished on Friday. Decided I didn't like on Saturday and had unravelled the whole thing by Sunday. I loved it but, it just didn't sit right or anything, I should really have accounted for the fact that I'm short and adjusted the width but...I didn't. However, its kind of worked out really well - I was sorting through my stash and found the perfect shade of red to go with it, so I'm knitting it up into a baggy sweater instead.
I've also cast on some legwarmers and a cowl this weekend, I love the look of thick knitted socks under boots but I really hate knitting socks for some reason - so legwarmers are the perfect! The cowl was an attempt to use up some yarn I was given a few months ago and it was a really simple project to take along to the KnitSoc meeting so I could concentrate more on talking than keeping track of where I was in a pattern! I'm so glad I decided to go along, its really nice to just chill out on a Sunday afternoon with a cuppa and a whole bunch of people that share my a love for knitting and the Hunger Games. Its like, my perfect combination.
I've been wanting a white board for a while, so I can keep a list of the important stuff I need to get done somewhere that I'll see it. Everytime I see them anywhere though, they just seem expensive for what they are - so I decided to make up my own. It was super easy - its just an old photo frame with white paper inside hung up on the wall. Normal white-board markers work really well and it comes off really easily with a damp cloth. I already had a frame hanging around but I've seen loads in charity stores with old paintings etc in that are really cheap - I'm tempted to make another one for our kitchen! It would probably be better than writing our shopping lists on the window...
