Little things…

I am a hopeless blogger, almost a week since last entry despite my constant attempts to write something. Well, I had a pretty busy week this week: met my supervisor, went to all of the induction parts (more to come during next two weeks), and met lots and lots of people! Oh and finally, yesterday I went through matriculation ceremony, becoming a proper Cambridge student (and it wasn’t as scary as it sounds)

On the knitting front: I have a very small FO, one new sock and completed back, front and half of one sleeve of Highgate.

Model: Colorimetry from Knitty Winter 2006
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cathay (less then one ball, about ½, left from Mimosa)
Needles: 4.00mm
Modifications: casted on 110 stitches (10 sts less)

I love Gansey sock (sock 1)

The calorimetry is beautiful and I love mine so I'm sure you'll love yours. You look so warm already.

Pretty socks and stunning sweater, love that green. Good luck in Cambridge.

What a gorgeous caliometry! Hope you'll have fun in Cambridge. If you want to meet fellow-knitters hereabouts, there's a knitting group in Cambridge, which you'd be very welcome to join. (Many of us are ex-Cambridge grads). Our next meeting is Tue 9 October in the Granta Bar (ground floor of the Universtiy Centre, aka the grad pad)7-9pm. For future dates visit our blog:

hi, i stumbled upon your blog whilst looking for chunky knit beret patterns and its thanks to you im going to get the VK holiday O6 issue for the beret pattern. i havent knitted for about fifteen years and have never knitted in the round before, ah well, nothing ventured and all that.

ive got some whacky multi-coloured yarns from netto of all places and will post the results on my art and music blog once ive done them.

anyway, i love your blog, one of the best ive seen. please do keep it up (i know hard it can be, i had a summer of spasmodic blogging too) but it's worth it because you've got a natural writing style and it's a lovely blog.

best wishes
