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

Hi! Long time no see!

So, umm, yeah, sorry for that random hiatus! I had a very important meeting for my PhD last Friday (as in do-or-die level!) and so I was massively busy preparing for and then getting over that! But that’s all done, and I’m massively psyched for it now! I have a month-by-month plan of attack so I feel like I’m in the home stretch now (somehow!).

So, where was I? Sock Saturday will resume this Saturday, I finished that card, started one for my dad’s birthday, bought a sweater’s worth of yarn in Oxford (what? They didn’t have any sock yarn I liked!) and finished some more socks 🙂

I will be back later with a proper update post, I just thought I’d let everyone know that I’m still alive! Next time I’ll try and give a bit more warning before I go AWOL!
