My regular life in the past few weeks was loaded with streams of unexpected activies because of some interview invitations (one from a UK top Ten Uni! though I didn’t get the job). I had to read plays and articles, as well as visit some archives, of all had nothing to do with my own work. I imagine in the following weeks, life would be the same, except that we’ll get more and more sunshine and this fact along cheers me up!

The progress of my work is reasonably lagging behind, which I tried to rectify the situation whenever possible, but the knitting was doing fine-not as much as I’d like it to be, but I did manage to have TWO FOs in the past month. These became my second and third FO of the year (not very productive) and in the end it became relatively unstilumating, because I was knitting the same design, the first time I’ve ever knitted one pattern twice!!

I cannot reveal the pattern just now, but it will be published online very soon. The pattern is done, but I am still struggling to master Adobe Illustrator in order to perfect the pattern. I love this photos, so until it get published, I am posting it here nonetheless:

soon to be my 3rd FO this year

As always, I am lucky enough to be able to get “Vogue Knitting” early (a.k.a. the not-so-vogue Designers Knitting for us UK knitters), directly from the USA.
The fake VK

With limited knitting time, it makes more sense to me to design and knit my own patterns, however, sometimes there is just something very beautiful that I’ll have to make it, so I cast on this one,

Lace stocking from VK though I never am a sock knitter! Plus, it would mean that I’d got a pair of stocking very soon, if I didn’t get the second sock syndrom this time. 🙂 Probably won’t–there are 4 charts needed for this design, one is available on the magazine, and three others from the website. As of this morning, VK hasn’t uploaded the rest of the charts! This means I’ll have to put on hold the first sock and cast on the second sock tomorrow and doing so reduce the possibility of getting second sock syndrom.

All I hope is VK uploading them before I depart for my (working-)holiday next Tuesday!
