Yup, I'm still alive, just exhausted after the week before semester starts - so much to organised, I feel drained tonight. Next week should be slightly quieter, fingers crossed.

Still working on my socks - I'm about halfway through the second one, so the deadline will be tight. I just haven't had the energy to work on them hardcore this week. Still, I'll work late on them tomorrow night, so hopefully I'll get them finished in time.

I sold 4 hats at Vent last month - w00t! They've only got one left so I'll have to head over there with some more. I'm looking forward to the freedom that finishing these socks will bring ;)

Received some lovely handdyed sock yarn in a swap from my friend Sarah - I think she must have used Koolaid to dye it, since it smells very grapey. It's shades of blue and burgundy-purple with some of the yarn left white, and I think it will make a spiffing pair of socks. Also, enormous needles - eep! They should be good for knitting scarves come winter.

My dad's in hospital at the moment - long story, he had an operation to remove a tumour on his thigh bone a couple of weeks ago, got discharged last weekend and in the middle of the night on Monday, he managed to break his leg. He finally found out yesterday that the tumour was benign, and had another operation today, but we don't know yet what's going to happen next. So it's been a bit of a stressful time.

Oh so sorry to hear about your dad!! Glad it is benign tho. Give him a hug from me!

Remember knitting is good for stress even 15 minutes at night before bed should help you sleep.

hugs coming your way. Knit on

Thanks, Beverley :) I'm sure the knitting helps, but it's been a hell of a couple of weeks!
