OH MY GOODNESS, OH MY GOODNESS.....
Good evening! Hope you've enjoyed a good weekend. I've had a very, very busy one; some fun, some work! I guess that's a fair share, because I do normally try not to do too much school stuff at the weekend. However, that's probably why I've had so much to do this weekend!!!!! My own fault, to some extent. I do object, though, to comleting endless bits of paper that are of no use to me and just have to be done to jump the next hoop. It's VERY irritating. Sorry, that's all the ranting for now.My fridge magnets say it all really!!!
The fun part, was another cinema trip to favourite picture house, Cinema City. We saw 'Never Let me Go', based on the brilliant book by Ishiguro. The film was every bit as good as the book!
There has been NO, yes you did read that correctly, NO!!! knitting done this wee. Well, that's not strictly true, I have completed two more stripes, yes just two more stripe, of my second 'Happy Sock'.
Not very impressive, I know. My poor, lonely knitting basket has sat untouched all week.
But, never mind, tomorrow brings a new week and a new chance for knitting opportunities. Then it's half-term! HOORAY!! Lots of knitting opportunities and hopefully a 'catch up' with my good friend josiekitten. She sent me a Ravelry message this morning, to say that she had seen the first advertisement for 'Knit Nation 2011', in the March edition of 'Knitting'. Now how exciting is that! I had received my copy uesterday too, but had not allowed myself to open it, until all my schoolwork was done. I have to say, on reading her message this morning, I quickly ripped the plastic covering off to get at it!
LOOK! How exciting is that! I can't wait! We had such a fabulous time in London last year and have already planned to go again this year, staying for a couple of nights.Book the date!
As I flicked through the pages, I came across an article all about Paris's heritage for fine knitwear and just loved this photo of a knitted jumpsuit by Sonia Rykiel. She began her reign of the Paris fashion scene in 1968. Knitted stripes became the trademark of her work. Don't you think it's great!
My craftless week has been brightened thouh. It really doesn't take very much to please me. On Tuesday, a liitle girl in my class called Molly, made this for me. How sweet!
I hadn't even taken the time, to notice the little snowdrops in the garden, opening up their delicate, white flowers.
Inside the house, these beautiful little 'tete-a-tete' narcissi had opened their bright yellow little faces to the light. Small, but priceless pleasures. Oh my goodness, how I love them!
I have to dash, still work to complete and housey things to do and maybe catch a bit of the BAFTAs at 9p.m. I'm rooting for Colin Firth! Hope you have some small pleasures this week. They are worth their weight in gold.
