At the moment I’m down with a nasty cold and more or less had to spend all week in bed. After feeling absolutely miserable for the first few days I’m somewhat better now and also rather bored.
To make time pass faster I did a lot of knitting. I finished those 9 to 5 socks, I blogged about last week and here is the most recent pair of finished socks:
The socks turned out really really well and I love how the circles look… but for some reason I didn’t enjoy the pattern. Making those circles was a major pain and so incredibly slow that it made me feel like the sock wasn’t “growing” at all… probably I’m just to impatient because the pattern actually was supereasy.
Anyway here is my rav. page with all yarn/needle details and more pics: http://ravel.me/aravis83/pld53
After all those socks I’ve done lately it’s time for another big knitting project and so I’m working on a cardigan now. No pics yet, but here is the pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/making-waves-cardigan
Apart from knitting, I watched quite a lot of “Breaking Bad” and I’m halfway through the second season now. It’s really awesome, but I’m no longer sure I acutally “like” it… there is just so much violence and disgusting and scary stuff. Still it’s quite fascinating and it certainly keeps me glued to the screen.
Oh and I started to read “Confusion” by Elizabeth Jane Howard which is the third book of the Cazalet Chronicles. Basically it’s the story of quite a large family and tells of their everyday life, their troubles and joys. This volume is set during WWII and so far I love it, though it started out quite sad.
Of course I’ve also played about every video game I could get hold of. Yesterday I finished “Snark Busters” (YAY me! ), which was amazingly good. Normally I don’t enjoy hidden object games much, but this one had such pretty pics and the story was quite interesting too. Right now I’m totally addicted to “Cradle of Rome” and “Drawn – The Painted Tower“. Oh and I’m still fighting my way through “Zelda – Occarina of Time” which is absolutely amazing… but also very, very hard and will certainly keep me occupied for many more hours.
