This ‘n’ that

This ‘n’ that

Watch as this female specimen of Homo sapiens emerges, blinking, into the post-Christmas and New Year light.  Shell-shocked from actually having people to entertain during this time, she managed without resorting to excess amounts of chocolate. I don’t have photos of the two young Swedes who visited (they were male and all together too young, so mind out of the gutter) but I do have photos of the cake

Hmm… one of those dots of marzipan looks like PacMan! 😀

the hat I started (and finished) for my brother

She’s the one on the left – isn’t she cute?!  Kind of looks like a Vulcan to me (that’s a good thing, by the way), but I’m a geek !

and an update on the socks from the 1st of January

Vortical socks from Knotions Winter 2008 issue in Sock it Too Me Puzzle

So, to conclude – I’ve been busy!  I know!  It’s not going to stop any time soon, either.  My birthday’s on Thursday (which I’m hoping will be quiet) and then I’m off to Wales on Tuesday to act as secretary for my Grandma (definitely not a holiday!). I’ll be looking forward to any chance to stop and breath, but I’m not sure if that will happen soon enough!

    1. I’m still reeling a bit (and not caught up on blog reading, yours
      included, Anne) but I think the knitting has helped keep me focused on
      something!

  1. She is TOTALLY cute and TOTALLY Vulcan =)

    Awesome socks too, I love how they go in opposite directions. The hat is nice too.

    Let’s go eat some PacMan marzipan!

    Happy birthday.
    Remember….you might have to grow old but you don’t have to grow up!
    Good luck with Grandma.

    1. Thanks for all the birthday wishes! I had a pretty chilled-out day, got
      some books and a pair of binoculars (I wanted them) and had some good grub!
