This is Knit had a sale this week, and I got this much yarn
|Five skeins of Noro Aya,|
|six skeins of Louisa Harding Willow Tweed,|
|three skeins of Louisa Harding Rosetti,|
|four skeins of miscellanoues (Sublime, Debbie Bliss Rialto and Sirdar chunky bamboo)|
Some of them I have plans for (the Willow Tweed will one day be a top), and the others are just for the sake of stocking up while it's cheap.
I have finished my Christmas shopping, and only have a few more presents left to make. I bought slightly fancy wrapping paper (recycled and all) and my presents look like this:
which I think is nice.
I own a colander now! No more steam-burning my hands when I need to drain rice or pasta using a bowl!
I went to my boyfriend's work Christmas dinner last night, and had this novelty beer.
So novel I stole the bottle. It was nice initially, but it tasted more like beer and less like ginger ale the more I drank. Pity.
Term is finished! Last week I handed in an essay worth 8% of my degree. The day before it was due I was talking to my PI, who also set that essay title, and when I described what I'd done she said it wasn't quite what she'd had in mind. Handed in regardless, and the person I believe is my second reader is quite a lenient marker. So that could go alright. Plus, today I was in the lab and when I was using the cryostat approximately one in three specimens were undamaged! I'm on fire.
My class are having a Christmas dinner later. In the meantime, I'm going to sit in the warm, knitting and emailing neuroscience PIs about research positions for next year.
