curse you, retched study.


yes it's been a while, as brianna keeps reminding me.
you can definitely tell i'm back at uni, as well as the lack of regular blog posts, the house is also a lot more messy and if it wasn't for all the rain, the garden would be looking a lot more bereft.
despite having a tonne of uni work to get done (3 assessment tasks completed before the 4th week is over) i have been getting up to a few crafty fun things...
first and foremost of course, beanies!i finished up dancing dirt into the snow about a week ago now. i may have run out of wool, quite close to the end and had to use a bit of a different one in there. it matches mostly...


and of course, with the finish of one beanie comes the beginning of another, this one i'm calling golden fir.
115 stitches on 6.5 needles. wayyyyyyy too many stitches i think, never a good idea to cast on while drinking, my maths were wayyyy out...


just as i suspected, this one turned out huuuuuge. oh well, not so much a beanie as it is a hat. will still do a good job of keeping your head warm though :D



so now i'm 5 beanies in. only 5 to go, halfway!!! wooooooo!
i'm having some epic big blankie guilt, which i think is mainly coming from how damn cold this weather is...
so the next beanie might be a little while. ripple blankie might be getting some love...
