Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

Finally recovered from Oxford!

Woot! Go me! It was great fun (talking maths non-stop for 4 days definitely counts as fun in my books!) but boy was it exhausting! But, I am now home, all the washing has been done, and I’m back into the daily grind again 🙂

I didn’t have as much time to knit as I wanted, *pout*. However, I did make a start on my hat (I had to do a normal cast on since I hadn’t realised it was supposed to be provisional…ahh well, it just means I need to sew it up, rather than kitchener stitch).

OxfordhatI hadn’t done all of this in Oxford, but I’ve been working on it since I came back too. I should stop, and do some more Christmas presents, but it’s just so much easier to pick up my knitting *sigh*. I’ll be good tomorrow.

I’ve also been working on a card for my friend, who recently moved house. I took a few elements from the SAL I did last year, and added my own lettering.

SamiI really like how it’s come out, but it’s a right pain to stick to the card-apparently, aida and double sided sticky tape don’t really mix. Any tips?

Well, that’s all I’ve been up to. I still need to get two more bits done this month to keep on track for Christmas, so I’d better get a move on!
