A productive weekendMonday, January 23, 2012
You remember that damn snood I've been knitting for weeks? Well, this weekend I finally finished it. Hooray! I'm a bit embarrassed to admit how proud I am. But just look at it, all grey and snuggly and perfect. Perfect from certain angles, anyway. I hope winter lasts forever so I can wear it all the time! And no, please don't remind me I said that when it's snowing in July.
If anyone wants to whip themselves up something similar, I used about a ball and a half of this wool in 'Wren' and I'd be happy to share my completely made-up and not-remotely-professional pattern. If I can remember it. Just email me.
(I'm not pregnant in that picture, by the way; that's just how I stand. Ask Lauren.)
In other weekend news, I packed for my ski holiday. Oh, I didn't mention my ski holiday? Yeah, I'm going on one. With Fin, and my parents, and my brother and his girlfriend and his friend and his girlfriend and a van full of wine. I suspect we'll need it.
We're not actually leaving until next weekend, but my dad is driving said van all the way to the French Alps this week with our bags and skis and snowboards (and wine) onboard, thus saving us approximately ten billion euros in easyjet baggage fees, so we had to pack this weekend. This makes a change from my usual packing procedure, which consists of making endless lists of all possible holiday capsule wardrobe combinations until it's midnight the night before departure and I'm desperately cramming damp clothing into a bag because I've been too busy making lists to actually do anything productive, like washing.
Actually, that's pretty much exactly what happened this weekend. It just happened six days before departure instead of six hours. Whatev, I still call that an improvement.
So, that was my weekend. How was yours?
