I am alive! Fourth year is hard. I spilled blood from a chick embryo on my skirt today. I missed the Knitting and Stitching fair last week to go to SVP intervarsities, came away buzzier than I would have otherwise. People were impressed by the fact that I was knitting away for the weekend. I am making gloves!
At this stage they could conceivably be called gloves already, but I'm making an extra pouch to be sewn to the side so that they can serve as mittens if needs be. They're for a friend of a friend, and a different friend of that friend wants to meet me to commission a hat. And I have to make another brainmonster for another friend's brother-in-law for Christmas. And socks for my mammy and maybe a scarf for my brother's girlfriend, and finish a secret thing I started yonks ago. And the lab got a new cryostat so I can start sectioning my samples from the Summer tomorrow! And I made chickpea curry as a late dinner, with a view to not eating much and using the rest for lunch tomorrow, but I'm not sure what's left will do for lunch. And I put in twice as much curry paste as usual in my sleepy state and my mouth kind of burns. And I may have volunteered to make a rabbit mask for the panto. And I have to find a pair of size 15 riding boots for Prince Charming. So!
Does anyone read this, even? Who knows.
