Not a knitting post

I got a letter from Cambridge Overseas Trust today saying I’ve got a full Overseas science scholarship for the duration of my PhD (3 years). I need something for my heart now…

Slowly but surely

I am so busy right now with all my lab work that there is almost no time left for knitting. Sad, I check other people’ blogs daily and feel like I am the laziest knitter there is. I am loosing my knitting mojo.

The only thing I have still been trying to knit from time to time is sister’s bolero: which it the biggest and most complicated piece I’ve ever done.

So far I am up to underarm decreases at row 50! This means I am only at about 20% of the entire bolero…

Another piece of knitting I was doing this weekend was my Entrelac Sock: finished the first heel tried it on and realised that the sock was waaaay too small, so it had to go. I have absolutely no idea if I will ever attempt to re-knit it.

My exams results are on: I’ve done really well! Thank God, just my dissertation to go now, which reminds me that I have to submit 4000 word introduction component by the end on next week and I haven’t started yet…

Project re-visit: Phildar Gilet

Something like 5 months ago Jared introduced this particular way of adding new pictures to the existing knits. I think it is a cool idea as it allows seeing the knit in the prospectus of actual wear it got.

Remember the unfortunate Phildar Jacket I’ve knitted back in March and then decided to give it away to my mum. Well, I finally took some pictures of it on her: only it is slightly modified nowadays as she removed the pockets (plans to put them back!) and doesn’t like the belt.

Inside Out Socks

For my boyfriend ;) Finally he got something knitted for him. I have to say this was the easiest pair of socks I’ve ever done, took me only 2 days! Love it!

Model: Inside Out socks from Rocking Socks Club 2007-06-12
Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts STR Medium weight in colour Monsoon
Needles: Inox 3.25
Modifications: I only used one needle size because this way I was able to get even stripes.

I am back to UK and my normal life. These were some crazy 14 days with so many things going on, I lost any count: celebrated dad’s b-day, met up with old classmates, had an operation on my tooth, a photo shoot, went to Linkin Park concert, did administrative thing for my passport, went to a giant swimming pool complex (twice, 5 hrs each time), went to my sisters’ dance concert and after party…
I also managed to finish the Cowl in time, finished a pair of socks for my boyfriend, started a new top, and bought tons of yarn.

For now I will just show you pictures of LP concert, which was great!
