Stitched up...

Look what arrived yesterday....


Lots and lots of yummy stitch charts. ... 332 yummy stitch charts to be more precise



At the moment I am so overwhelmed I cant make my mind focus long enough to even begin thinking of applying them. The ideas flick around in my head as much as the pages.



It's really great and really comprehensive with lovely big glossy pics. I love it!



Also, yarn from a swap on ravelry arrived. I promised Man I would make him socks with it, so I cast on last night. I am waiting on some needles for my own spring socks.


There is a pattern in there but you cant see it yet. I dont mind really in the end whether or not the pattern is very clear, the sock yarn is interesting enough (of course, that's why the stitch pattern isnt very clear though)



I am much better, thanks for the get well thoughts, still have a cough, but most of the rest of it is gone. Back to the old life on Monday.

I am in my final semester. That's a scary thought. I have been in the degree for 6 years, I am in the final semester of it. It was a relatively safe place to be, but soon I'll be thrown into the big world where I have to take real responsability for my actions, where my learning finally makes the difference between good and bad, where I have to figure out on my own what to do with people. I wonder what it's going to be like.

Don't worry - you'll be fine once you start working. There will be no pressure of having to study and prepare for exams. Once you get in the routine of everyday life it's ok.
Though - working with people can be very stressful sometimes...
