Bone Idle

Today has not been a productive one at all.

Since my doctor gave me a week of work I'v done pretty much nothing. Isn't it always the same? You are so busy that your exahusted but you get on with things anyway but as soon as you have a rest you cant get going again. By the way, im not diseased, I'v just sprained a tendon in my wrist but working on the checkouts wasn't helping it at all so my GP very kindly signed me off of work for a week, wey hey! no Asda for 7 days.

So the plan for today was to get on with the the dissertation because thats the next big hand in, aside from the end of year assesments of course, but things didnt go quite to plan. I'v more or less just messed around on the internet and MSN all day. I came online first thing to check my e-mails and it all went downhill from there. Although the problem could be that I'm becoming nocturnal, I work better at night, less noise and distraction, or that's what I like to tell myself. Anyway, there are 4 weeks till the end of term so plenty of time to get everything done!

So while I was messing around not doing very much I thought I'd catch up on what the current issue of Knitty has to offer. For anyone who doesn't know about this website and enjoys knitting it's well worth a look. Issued quarterly it is full of free patterns sent in by readers and links to their blogs if they have one, the nice thing is that often the people who send things in are proffesional knitters and sometimes have books of their work published so the patterns are always high quality. There is also an archive of past patterns and every issue has articles relating in some way to knitting, be it on hand spinning, felt, or new techniques. Anyway, if anyone enjoys knitting and didnt know about this site I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and for anyone who is interested in learning to knit and doesnt know where to start have a look at this site, it helped me loads and the videos make so much more sense than reading a load of instructions where you dont understand the pictures never mind the instructions.

Have a good day whatever your doing. x
