  what a busy weekend
I have been knitting like a fiend for the last few days. School holidays have arrived which is fan-blinking-tastic. I finished Clapotis and it is as wonderful as I hoped it would be. Zhivago works really well for this pattern. That't my hot tip for the day.

Here is a picture of the green curly scarf:

I have also been working on a beanie for the Guardian Angel appeal. Little Purl has also been doing some of this.

I received an email from my postcard swap partner for Project Spectrum, apologising for not sending my postcard. Ahem. I had not sent hers either, so this afternoon I spent a couple of hours whipping something together. Paper craft is not my forte, I am not very creative at all. However, I am pretty pleased with the end result. I made a couple of little additions, and I hope she likes them! I had plans of getting a real postcard with some green scenery but, um, I have not been getting out much lately.

Last night I spent hours on an assignment for Uni, I will be doing that for the next few days as I have to write 11500 words by next Tuesday. No sweat. I have done about 2000 of them. *thud*

I have also turned the heel and am powering towards the end of the first bright sock. AND I won an auction on ebay for some Regia which will be posted tomorrow so I will be thinking about what I will make with that. I really need to step outside my comfort zone with this one, and perhaps try some lace. The colours are quite dark, I am not sure that lace would suit. Maybe I will play it safe and make some variation on the Mata Hari socks. I am also planning on using up some little bits and pieces with some baby socks. And some toe up blue variegated Patonyle socks, probably just rib for these, to try doing them 'backwards'.

I have had a brainwave re Christmas presents. I am going to make felted Christmas stockings for the nieces and nephews and include a small gift. This will last them forever!!

I watched the Wedding Date last night. It was okay, your standard RomCom. Tonight I am going to get nostalgic and watch Mermaids. I remember loving this when I was younger and will watch it with Little Purl.

Edited to add:
Me: Cool - here's a quiz that tells you what Brady you are.
SS: You don't wanna be Jan!
You Are Jan Brady

Brainy and a little introverted, you tend to think life is a lot worse than it actually is.
And while you may think you're a little goofy looking, most people consider you to be a major babe.
What Brady Are You?

Er, I am Jan. Marcia Marcia Marcia. SS now tells me Cindy was much more annoying!
Thee Ya!
you have been busy havent you?

I am waiting for my two to totally drive me batty with the hols...lol.

I am hoping to get some time to knit for the Guardian Angel Appeal. I have the past 2 years. Just worried about time and all.

I love the curly scarf!

I'm not having much luck with socks at the moment but have gone and bought more yarn anyway...

Good luck with all your assignments.
Yes, I am very annoying!! Wow, you have finished the Clapotis!!! and the green curly scarf is great!!! Happy Holidays!!!
just wondering, how many balls of zhivago did you use for the clapotis?

I love school holidays and I can see that you do too, nice FOs there, Clapotis in Zhivago would be lovely and soft.

I used to love The Brady Bunch when I was growing up and you know what Jan was my favourite. Marcia was too much of a goody goody and as SS mentioned Cindy was annoying, cute but annoying.
