Getting busy

Can't you tell I'm back at work, the posts have all but disappeared!
It's Friday and I've done the first week, only 5 more to go as it's only a 6 week half term (does happy dance!). I've been out a few nights as well this week, though it's been nice not doing Rainbows this week. Last night I went out to the house of a friend I met at my knitting group, which is being kicked out of our lovely cafe, the owner doesn't want to stay open late any more so we are going to be come slightly more nomadic... but it does mean we will probably stay later than 9pm, so I suppose more knitting and chatting time.
I've finished my first lace project of the year which will also be my first Christmas present. I blocked it yesterday so plan on taking photos tomorrow in real daylight, something that's in short supply right now. How I long for summer and days where it's light until 9pm...

Settling down

As nice as the holidays are it is nice to be back in to the routine of work in the daytime and relax in the evenings. Work so far is going ok, No major panics, and when I think back to the teacher I was back in September the difference amazes me!
It's also meant that I now only get time to knit in the evenings, not that this seems to be stopping me. I'm part way through a pair of socks for me, a lace scarf which will be for Christmas next year, and last night I knocked up these. Panic not Mum they're not for me, they're present for someone at school whose wife just had their first baby.

PS. Don't forget about pay it forward, sign up if you want something made by me, there really can't be only 1 taker!
