Finally done

I'm done with my exams in my re-education, now I will hopefully have some more time for knitting and for blogging.

Here is a pic of one of the hats I made for SPEW, there are more, but I especially like this one:

I will blog more soon, now I just need to catch up with all the forums and get some knitting done. I don't want to let my pal wait for her package.

Sign of life

just wanted to show that I'm still alive, but I'm rather occupied with my exams for my muggle education right now. Tomorrow will be the first one, and then one every day for the next two weeks.

But I decided about a bag for my pal and bought the wool, just need to dye it at the beginning of next week or so and then I can start knitting. It will be nothing too fancy, as my knitting time is somewhat short too at the moment, but I hope she will still like it.

I'll post pics of the yarn as soon as it is ready to be knit.

Can't make up my mind

I really don't know what to knit for my pal this time... a bag? something else? and if I knit a bag, what size? what yarn? do I buy it or dye myself? So many questions to answer and I have no solutions yet.

Perhaps you could give me a hint or two about what you are going to knit for your pals? I'm really in need for a good idea right now.

Now I'm back to my books, my exams for my muggle re-education come closer and closer. Less then two weeks to go and I feel like I don't know anything. And that's probably why I can't think about the swap right now, my mind is too full with useless stuff I will hardly ever need again.
