Episode #08

Just a quick one! The newest episode of my podcast! Show notes can be found in the ravelry group! Come and say hi, I’ll really appreciate it! 

This time I talk about some FOs, a few WIPs and many KALs 🙂 and a bit of lacrosse and my thesis! 

Ps, ever knitted a stitch marker into your knitting? Well just happened to me 😦

I’m alive

life had been very busy lately but I have something really fun coming up and am in a very happy place right now, or just as happy as one can be with the deadline of the final thesis being like end of May?! Haha. 

So what has happened? I went to Desden with my lacrosse team and we came second in the Lax in the Box tournament! Which is just insane! My knee was and is still hurting a lot though but coming second?!? So awesome! We even got a medal!!!

  
I’ve been at university almost all week long and working with the data from my eye tracking experiment! It has been nerve wracking but also very interesting and the whole thing has so much potential, I have to watch out not to get too much into it all as I’m only writing a bachelors thesis right now and not yet a masters! 

  
On Sunday is the last game of this season and it is a win win situation as in its either us or the other team who will get a place for the play offs! So we want to win this game so badly and it would be just amazing to go to the play offs!!! It would be such a great ending to my time playing for Victoria Lacrosse Berlin! 

Time is flying bye so so quickly. I still have so much things to organise before my move to Australia and I can’t really do any of them as I have my head focused on my thesis! 

Weather in berlin is getting nicer and nicer and I’ve been wearing my Birkenstocks and dresses without tights! So awesome! Well I leave the house in the mornings with leggings and as soon as I’m at university the leggings go straight into my backpack 🙂

  
I went to a talk about the Russian Ukrainians crisis at the GMF in berlin and it was very interesting and I’ve learnt a lot! 

But now I’m going to sleep. I have to get up extra early tomorrow cause the train personnel is on strike and I have no clue how easy it will be for me to get to work tomorrow morning as I have to take the Sbahn and not the Ubahn which I take to get to university… 

Oh and tomorrow night we have lacrosse team night at my place! All the girls at mine and we will order food and talk and have a great time 🙂 

I also hope to record a new podcast episode on Saturday with a special giveaway coming up! 

Monday already?

Time is flying fast right now people! It’s only 97 days until I fly to Australia! So excited!

So what has happened lately?
I have done my first two pre tests for the experiment for my thesis and both of them went very well. Or of course I had little problems with the equipment but the actual thing I am doing and investigating or how ever you would call it, worked just as I hoped for! Bähm! Great.

We have had wonderful weather over the weekend, which was great! On Sunday after the test a friend of mine and I went and had some soy icecream in a newly open cafe in my neighbourhood, which is crazy, we then went to a garden around here and enjoyed the sun. Lovely.

I’ve been writing with Nina (fuzzyloveknots or nlafountain) and she motivated me to finally finish my Amber vest !!! I was so worried the whole time that I wouldn’t have enough yarn, and yes, I did actually buy one more skein of the one yarn (the whole garment is knit out of four different yarns!)  and I got to use some scrap yarn as the other type has still not arrived at one of my LYS… don’t care anymore. And I’ve been wearing it ever since 🙂 I hope I will get some nicer pictures at some point (wow I’m hoping this about my Riddari too… so it won’t happen probably…)

The week ahead:
Monday: work on my thesis, do washing, grocery shopping
Tuesday: work, maybe another test, then university
Wednesday: experiment! 10-17 o’clock
Thursday: experiment!
Friday: experiment!
Saturday: experiment Hopefully only one

Other then that, I have also finished my Nurmilintu shawl as I though I would need the needles for the test knit I am doing for the above mentioned lovely Nina 🙂

So now I will continue watching Juniper Grace, look at some more apartments in Melbourne and think about dinner…

Already Friday?

So time is flying by so fast right now. But that is usually the case when you have a lot to do and  not really enough time to get everything done.

So since I came back I haven’t been home much, just been working, babysitting, at university, at my ‘real’ job, physiotherapy and acupuncture… Today I went to three of the mentioned places, left the house at 07:50 and came back around 21:35 ! Too crazy!

I did knit today which is really nice. Been watching Knit All The Things, a really nice podcast by Cara from Wales and it is really nice to watch a knitting podcast by a young person 🙂 And I love her english accent too! I’ve been catching up with her episodes so now I am up to date again and I knitted on my Pigeon Jumper for my niece in Australia. I’m on the first sleeve now. The body was done in Chile! Now I’m writing here and watching the first episode by Little Bobbins Knits but when I look at my watch I should rather sleep!

I cancelled tomorrows morning babysitting which I am happy about. I watched the two kids today and the big one got a stomach bug which I have the feeling I got too cause I am feeling really weird in my stomach. So I am not in the best mood right now. And I got my pictures which I took with my La Sardinia analog Camera in Chile and most of them are just not nice. I don’t know what happened. I used the camera a lot but this roll is just really bad quality and I can’t really explain it. I am super sad! I did take my big digital camera and another analog one but because of my friends telling me about another of their friends who travelled alone being robbed I was a bit too afraid to take the big cameras with me especially because I was wandering the streets by myself a lot and I don’t speak Spanish… I did take a lot of pictures with my phone but they got into stupid iPhoto, which I just hate…

But, I got my boyfriends christmas calendar all done and I might even post it tomorrow so I have less to put in my suitcase! Which would actually be really nice! I already have so much to take and it is always a question of weight at the end. Never the space always the 30 kg :/

Ok, Good Night.
