FIVE days left…

Time is running and there is still a lot to do and then I am going away this weekend… Well I would probably not have done anything on Saturday even if I would have stayed in Berlin but, it does feel bad. Shouldn’t I be in front of my computer even if I would just stare at the screen? Well. I decided not to.
So in a few hours I am going away with my Lacrosse team for the last time in a long while probably and this is exactly a perfect reason why I decided not to stay home. Who cares if my thesis has these few mistakes? I won’t remember that in a few years but the fun I had on a weekend away with my lovely team girls! This is what I want!
And because I have a lot of finished knitting projects flying around that just need to be blocked, I did this during the moments when my internet was not working. And no internet, no work on my thesis. Bรคhm.

Blocking on my bed

Sorry for this very poor iPhone photo. The lighting is awful. My top lightbulb has been broken for a few days now, just have no time for stuff like this!
You can see my Nurmilintu, Saroyan and the Olivia Shawl. And yes I do double block so fronts and backs of cardigans match each other! Anyone else doing this too?
You might also notice that two shawls did not quite fit onto my bed, or was it me starting wrong? Anyway, even if I would have been more cautious, they are too big! Well too big for my bed, not too big for me ๐Ÿ™‚

ok. this was quick. I still have to pack and have dinner.
Lovely weekend everyone!

So I finally casted on a project for Leas and my Knit-A-Long!
I decided on the Lion Brand Yarn Heriloom Cables Baby Sweater and I am using yarn which I bought in Chile. I’m halfway through the back and can’t wait to cast the fronts on ๐Ÿ™‚

#LeLoBabyKAL

Hello everyone!
Writing to you out of bed as I’m sick, the third day stuck in bed… What I first thought was pollen turned into a massive cold. In May? How did I deserve this? Especially now that I have so much writing to do for my thesis… Very bad timing.
But to cheer me up, well no, this was planned way before haha. But, the lovely Lea from A Freeze Frame and her All You Knit Is Love Podcast and me are having a joined Knit-A-Long together!

You maybe have already heard about it on our podcasts or read about it in the ravelry groups, but since Monday 11th of May until the end of June we are hosting a Baby KAL ! We were both knitting the Newborn Vertebrae and got chatting about baby patterns which ended into hosting this KAL together! So far we have the lovely Vicky from Baerenwolle who will give a skein of her yarn to one lovely winner! And also someone will win a pattern, which is yet a secret ๐Ÿ™‚ If anyone else wants to sponsor, get in contact with us !
So we have a chatter thread in Leas ravelry group and a FO thread in my group and at the end we will have winners out of each group. You all, this is so exciting!

And for all of you who are just as undecided what to knit here is a bit of an inspiration:
