The sky seems bluer, grass seems greener, twittery birds are now cute and no longer annoying....

My summer research is finally over! Hence the euphoria. This last week, the culmination of three months of work crammed into 4 days drained the life out of me! The longest I've slept since Sunday was 3 hours a day.

But now...I'm FREE as a bird. The catch? It only lasts ten days and the cycle of doom begins again.
Ah but still..sweet freedom.

I first celebrated by sleeping 15 hours straight and my dreams were haunted with images of shoot tips, callus and freakish scenarios of "you haven't submitted your thesis need to get up now and GET ON IT!"
I actually did wake up in confusion and proceed to rifle through my books only to realise, Dang...I've submitted everything early this morning, what the hell is wrong with me?! is a pic of my sock on my feet. A better idea of how it look except the sunlight made it look rather faded.

I've tried and tested the sock and worn it a number of times and here's what happened: IT FELTED!!!!

Perhaps the friction of my feet and the shoes....perhaps my luck....perhaps....dunno...

But yes ladies...that's my take on Claudia's felts: DURING USE!

I've got tons of projects that need to be completed ASAP and it's going to be a race against time. But it's going to be fun.

Anyhoo that's all the news from this side...a promise: more interesting and picture-smattered posts next time...I'm still in Laze-About Phase.



To all those who celebrate this vibrantly colourful day....

Happy Knitting too y'all!

Back from the Abyss's over. I must say that I did my very best and now have to sit back and see where my efforts have put me.
Thank you all for your wonderful support, it was truly heart-warming to see how much all of you cared and shared my sorrow. I am relieved to tell you all that I am much more light of heart and am not as stressed anymore.
And I know that your prayers played a substantial part in it.

Yesterday was my buddy Mira's bday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABE!
Mira: I hope you have a great year babe. You totally deserve it. Thanks for being an awesome friend.

I have an FO to show. Cast on during times of stress and completed with such joy. I love the colours. They make me feel so vibrantly happy.

Pattern: Bob Marley's Grandma's Footies
Yarn: Just over one skein of Claudia's Handpainted in Deep Blue
Needles: 2.75mm dpns in a set of 5
Size: Ladies size 9-11

Comment: The cuff was replaced with twisted ribbing to give more definition. The yarn was lovely to work with and knits up real smooth. To see another pair worked in this pattern, click here. My inspiration =)

That's all for now. Thanks again for your support. I appreciate it beyond what words can ever express.

Happy Knitting everyone!
