At last, at last

I’m still alive, but knitting is barely so. Well, the thing is, I finally kicked my arse and did something about my thesis, i.e. I got into the mood and started writing. In september this went really well and I sort of put my knitting aside to reduce temptations and encourage me to write in the evenings instead. But now, this doesn’t work any more and I lost my mojo. I’ve been struggling and trying to get something done but the productivity is close to zero. Still, my goal was to finish a draft for all chapters in October. I still have 11-12 days. I’ve been thinking about taking a few days off work and use some of my vacation, which I still have left, to get myself together and try and finish. Writing between 9AM and 3PM might be easier. Or am I just fooling myself?

This summer we (all five of us) took a “little” vacation abroad. For three weeks we drove through Denmark, Sweden and Norway. For me, it wasn’t much of a time off, far too much driving and stress. The most relaxing time of the trip was the time in the Ferry, which we took from Seyðisfjörður to Jylland (Denmark) and back home from Bergen in Norway. On the boat, while Hjalti was sleeping, I managed to finish a pair of fingerless mittens (for me) and nearly finish a pair of Jaywalker socks, I think it’s the first pair I’ve ever knit for me:

At the moment I’m knitting a lopi-vest for me, it’s going very, very slowly because of aforementioned reasons. But I really need to finish this damn thesis so I can start knitting again without feeling guilty all the time. Plus I need the vest, it’s getting very cold here know.

    Grifflurnar eru geggjaðar, hvaða garn notaðir þú?

    SÆL.
    Mikið eru sokkarnir flottir. Hvaða garn notaðir þú? Ég er búin að gera eina Jaywalker en úr röndóttu sokkagarni. Þeir eru alveg yndislegir, gott að vera í þeim.
    Griflurnar eru líka mjög flottar.

    Sokkarnir mjög flottir og grifflurnar æði! má spyrja hvar þú fékkst uppskriftina?

  8. Sigurlaug Says:

    Þakka ykkur fyrir! Sokkana gerði ég úr Noro-Kureyon Sock, minna en einni hnotu, keypti í Storkinum síðasta sumar (mynstur: Jaywalker, hægt að finna á Ravelry). Grifflurnar eru prjónaðar úr Ístex einbandi, grábláu (lit nr. 0347 að mig minnir) og uppskriftina, Upp, má finna í einbandsblaðinu frá Ístex.
