FO Simple Purple Socks

I have just realised I have not shown you both of my precious purple socks in all their glory so there they are. I just love how they match perfectly, just like I'm standing on a mirror. I also wanted to point out how much I enjoy this year Knitting and Crochet Blog Week - meeting great crafters and reading about their life and work day after day (note the nifty tagging system) - this is all so great that I'm a bit ashamed I chose not to participate this year. So I used a smidgen of crafter lingo in the post title to position myself little closer to subculture I already believe to be part of :)

Some Late Night Baking

It never gets old or tiresome to watch freshly made sandwich buns bake. Tonight I made potato buns from some leftover mashed potato so tomorrow morning I can have some before leaving for Varazdin and take some with me for lunch. I'm watching Karakurizer lose his temper over Urahara's shenanigans and loving that I can understand almost half of things said in original Japanese dub.

Graduation Flowers

I got this beautiful flower bouquet (that my mum is holding) as a graduation present from a dear friend. Finally I have justified trust of everyone who believed in me against piling evidence that this graduation shall never happen.

Purple Sock

I almost have new pair of socks as this baby's twin sister is ready to be binded off. Since my last post I turned 33 and had lovely celebration with best cake ever. Things have been happening at lightening speed and I paused a bit with blog updates. Tomorrow I'm taking my offspringess to school as she will be first-grader this fall. Weather is also getting warmer and I immensly love being able to walk around with no coat.

Eskimimi's Dextrous Mitts

Sometime in early February I bought wonderfull Flutter mittens by Eskimimi and few days ago I found thank you e-mail from Eskimimi in my inbox along with coupon for free download of lovely Dextrous Mitts. I casted them on yesterday morning around 10 and at 4pm my mum had new fabulous pair of handwarmers. I adjusted them for knitting in the round and they were sheer pleasure to knit and on top of that just 4 easy ends to weave in.

Cherry Buds

I've just had a terrible fight with my mother, person in whose house I live in and in turn participate in life costs and investments. I wouldn't go as far as to say they couldn't go on without me but it is fuckin' sure as hell my buck makes life easier. I do not like her and her values and lifestyle is something I don't identify with but she is my mother and there's nothing to be done here and I expect same leniancy from her. Or at least I used to expect that. It seems that I'm also growing up in this regard. I see now that my expectations were based on unprobable assumptions of racional and objective. As I am saddened by the fact of acknowleding lack of common ground to build on I am also somewhat relieved with finding out I already posess the capabilities of understanding that even if we will never be able to see eye to eye there is nothing that SHOULD be done about it. I somehow feel Tao Te Ching finally sinking into understanding.
