Seneca pullover by Jared Flood is coming on slowly but surely. Love that soft angora Classic Elite Yarns Lush yarn, so fluffy, light, and warm. The sweater is knitter down up, then sleeves are joined in and the whole thing is finished off with lovely cabled yoke. So far I am all done up to that assembly point!

3 years

I've got a discretionary leave to remain and work here! it is not a permanent one but I guess with taking so much time off 9-8 years ago being sick it is fair. My love affair with UK continues but it will not take me another 3 years to settle here. In my heart however I am fully settled and love this country with all its rain, drafts and humidity but also with fantastic science community and opportunities. Being allowed to do what you love the most is what counts in the end ;)

Truly this month is getting worse... Dear mum, I know you are reading it, please get better soon... hopefully you will be able to go home in couple of weeks... what a huge scare those two last day were...

Meanwhile here is a bit of knitting I ve been trying to focus on. I am currently battling with sleeves of Thorington as original pattern is just not working, so I am trying to do them using my favorite set-in-short row model aligning stripes.

Loosing three people you love in as many weeks is incredibly sad... particularly when it is so incredibly random... just still feels surreal... Rest in peace H, N and G, you will not be easily forgotten

Old and New

I have finally submitted my thesis (well a month ago now) with the viva set in December I finally have time to look for jobs, knit and simply relax. So nice not to be at work for up to 18hrs a day.

Here are some of my old and new favorites

Hair, face and nail care
Make up: new mascara and prep mascara from MAC in detail
