Some Knitting

So instead of making my book pile smaller by actually reading one....I made it bigger by buying another....this time is was David Mitchell's "The Thousand Autumn's of Jacob de Zoet". Now I really must start reading again.

I have managed some knitting however - a prototype - a carrot hat for my friend at work's soon to be baby. I am onto the second style to see which one works better....


I hope you all have a lovely weekend! I started mine with an afternoon off work, in Glasgow (following a meeting) where I met a friend and bought a dress to wear to a wedding next weekend - now I am in a dilemma - the dress is a very pale grey/stone colour - do you think it is ok for a wedding? Not too close to white? I plan to wear it with a bright coloured cardigan and tights.

Tomorrow is knitting group at Twist in Newburgh and following a leisurely lunch with friends, a trip to the Saturday evening lecture at the University - this week it is the Ig Nobel Lecture - focusing on the 2010 Ig Nobel Prizes - prizes that focus on science that makes people laugh and then makes them think. The Engineering Award for 2010 went to a project that perfected a way of collecting whale snot using a mini helicopter; whilst the Physics prize went to research that showed that people slip and fall less often on wintry footpaths if they wear their socks over their shoes.....

Sunday I am off to Yu Spa at the Apex Hotel for a massage, swim and lunch - all in all sounds like a good weekend to me!

Dear Di, I had spend my day today helping Anja with her Math and practice viola, plus tons of small house things need to do. You should realize how lucky you are to live a free life without children. I am not complaining... Only sigh at your life!

The dress is completely fine for me with a bright coloured cardigan and tights;)
Have a nice weekend!

That little carrot hat is adorable! I love how it's kind of "stringy" at the end -- just like real carrots. Not sure about where you are, but that wedding combo would be just beautiful for here!

It's been some time ago, but sounds like this weekend was so much fun.

You had me laughing out loud with the catching whale snot with helicopters... ufff.. too funny.
