This time last week I thought I’d have not one, but two new patterns to post. Actually, I’m nowhere near either – but some exciting stuff has been happening, so I have good reasons to delay.
I had my mid year review at work, which couldn’t have gone much better. Nothing official is riding on it, but it’s still great to get such positive feedback at work.
I went to the opera last night to see la Boheme, which was beautiful, and went to a fantastic Indian restaurant beforehand. I also went to see the Gauguin exhibition at the Tate Modern – a real weekend of culture.
On the way home I totally saw Tim from the Junior Apprentice on the Northern Line, which is pretty much the most exciting thing ever. He’s smaller than he looks on TV.
My housemates and I made an epic pumpkin for Hallow’een (see below). If you get what it is, post in the comments!
And I was invited to go for a walk on Hampstead Heath with my boyfriend’s family, but I’m feeling a bit coldy (all that culture must have caused it) so I couldn’t face it, even with Vallombrosa and Hermine to keep me warm. I’m now curled up on the sofa complete with my knitting glasses on, with a cup of coffee and a new squared jotter for finally fixing a way to keep my knitting project notes in something approaching order. I expect the next pattern (Provisional title Oatmeal because of the colour of the wool) to appear some time this week.
