It's the weekend !

It's Saturday, witch means that today I had time to knit. YEAY ! For the result: cf. infra
Yesterday I went to the wool shop near me with my godmother to buy wool for a jumper for her. It's going to be this in red-brown-orange. So the knitting list at the moment is:
- cable hat
- black jumper (2 B finished)
- blue scarf (the same one as in the last post, because the first got sold straight away :) )
- red-brown-orange jumper

other things:
- sew blue hooddie
- crochet a few antimacassars

-) I've got enough to do for the moment! But luckily it'll soon be the holidays!
The scarf

more photos of other projects coming soon !

Bus trips to Antwerp? Great!

You'd think someone would get bored if they sat on a bus for one and a half hours to get to Antwerp and one and a half hours back with nobody next to them. Well today, I didn't, and you can guess why! I started on one of the sleeves for my black jumper and now after 3 hour of knitting I have half a sleeve. Great! my jumper is coming on really nicely, but I'll have to leave it aside for a while now, because some classmates have put in orders. One girl wants me to knit her a scarf, the other one wants a cabled hat. They're both going on a skiing trip with school the week after next, so the items have to be ready by then. I've already started the scarf, I'm about one third of the way through, because I knitted during a concert I went to on Wednesday!

It's true, Knit Happens

Hello world,
I thought you might want to know about the day to day knitting life of one of your people.
So, here I go.
Today was quite a nice day.
At the moment I'm knitting this in black. I'm about third of the way up the main part and thought I'd go and buy some double-pointed needles to knit the sleeves. So I went to the shop, bought them and then, guess what, I rummaged through my knitting bag and found a set of needles exactly like the ones I'd just bought...
You see, knit really does happen xD
I'll have to go back tomorrow to take them back....  I had to pop into the shop anyway because a girl in my class wants me to knit a scarf for her. That'll be one of my last scarves this winter I'm afraid, because the weather here is getting quite pleasant in the afternoons...
At the same time I'm also knitting an 'Ondas' scarf. Very pleasant once you get in to the rhythm of pulling the yarn open, I must say.
That's enough for today,
Hope to see you soon,
