The sun came out today, for what seems to be the first time in weeks!
I keep having a lot on my mind, but I thought I'd take the time to add a couple of pictures.

As I said, I've moved house. We're not quite in order yet, my camera is still in a box somewhere and more furniture is coming down from Gothenburg on Friday. But I bought new chairs and I'm very pleased with them.

My shawl isn't very photogenic yet, I still need to block it but before I do that I need to mend a small hole (eh, I dropped a stitch and compensated for it without noticing, luckily I caught it before it unravelled). It's really cosy though, I hope to get a few pictures of me wearing it once it's actually done!

That's it for now, I'm off to cook carrot lasagne, write a speech about why Chinese cannot (or should not) become the new world-language and prepare a few job applications!

Life signs

Right. I did not mean to fall off the face of the earth. I see that I'm still getting page views so I figured I'd better write something up before this blog is written off as dead!

My degree essay is finished (yay) but I've recently moved house so everything is a bit of a mess - I still haven't unpacked the box where my camera is for instance. Because of that, I can't give you any pictures of the lace shawl I've knitted during my absence just yet. I've thought of taking a quick snapshot using my phone, but every time I remember it's gone dark already (damn winter!).

Hopefully I'll get past the living-out-of-boxes stage soon. I feel that my life will instantly become more bloggable when I do, but I'm not sure there's really a truth to that.
