Busy, busy bees.

Another weekend flies by.
I always loved that Douglas Adams quote about liking deadlines and the whooshing sound they make as they go by. Kind of like my weekends.

Still, it was a busy one, and I have photos to prove it!

I got a little shopping done this weekend. Am now the proud owner of a black and jade silk top by Ghost. It was on sale, and had 75% off, and I am weak like a little girl.
While walking through Dunnes, I spotted these beauties

They're bamboo trainer liners. I know that the sock versions of these have been blogged previously, but these are in black, and I'm mostly a black sock girl. The socks are 72% bamboo, and I got this pack for 5 euro...or about 8 dollars. They're so soft and squishy and wonderful.

Hat number 2 has been cast off and (and!!!) finished since my last update, and I have photographic evidence to prove it.

Yay! 2 down!

Ravelry is doing my WIPs the world of good. Nothing like needing to show photographic evidence to get a knitter motivated!

Which brings me to what I'm up to this morning. Working. Yup, working hard.
Here you can see my laptop:

Yup......working hard......

always nice when 'work' combines with knitting, lol

Ah you see, I'd love to whip my knitting out in the office but I'm not brave enough ... plus you know, I should be working and stuff lol. But I am needing a new job from October and I'm trying to peruse the whole work from home arena, so I'm going to have to pick your brains about what you do, how you got into it etc etc. Feel free to throw me the look and hit me on the head with a ball of wool if I'm being too nosy :)
