Just a quick post from me today - work is still crazy! Last night was the Snowbird SAL, so here is my progress with Paradigm Lost - it's going rather well at the moment!
I've also finished Orlaith's stocking - the stitching bit anyway. And, to answer Marne's question, Orlaith is pronounced 'Orla', the extra 'ith' is the Irish spelling. In my experience, Irish seems to use a lot of extra letters that are phonetically ambivalent - somehow they exert their influence over the pronounciation of the word, but not in a way that is necessarily apparent to native English speakers! I'm now partway through attaching the charms (but I haven't taken a photo of that yet), and I intend to get underway with the finishing this weekend. I am quite scared about this, but have had few long conversations with my mum, and we've traded a few emails (hers mainly starting out with NO DON'T DO IT THAT WAY!). But I have lots of finishing material, and frankly I can wield a seam-ripper with the best of them!
Finally, just a quick update on broadband, which will be the key to my finally having time to post regularly and also to read all your wonderful blogs regularly, which I just don't have the time to do anymore at work :( The broadband is set up, the computer is ordered and set for delivery next week, the broadband hardware is waiting for me at the post office to pick up on Saturday. All being well, we should be up and running by this time next week. Phew!
Thanks for stopping by; wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
(Am I the only one planning the tree and getting excited about hauling out the ornaments and Christmas decorations??? It's nearly December!!!)
