My first week as a Masters student went very well, with a lot of work but quite a lot of fun along the way. It helps when you’re a complete science geek and the people around you are too.

I even managed to fit in a little bit of exercise. I went swimming last night with one of my housemates. It was good fun and good exercise but hard work, especially as I’m not that used to it. I’ll definitely go again. I hope I’ll be able to fit a run in this weekend.

In knitting news, the arch shaped socks are languishing on my desk, I haven’t done any knitting on those since I was waiting at London Euston two weeks ago. I will get cracking on those. I’ve also decided to knit Kristen Kapur’s mystery sock because it is fun and I have some sock yarn that doesn’t have a specific destination. I’m going to knit those two at a time so that I can stay abreast of the clues.

Now dinner and the pub.

I have been horribly lazy lately about taking pictures of my completed projects. I’ve got my Leyburns (finished over a month ago no less), my Ishbel (unblocked as well), and a newly completed Icing Swirl Hat all languishing waiting to be prepped and prettied for photo fun. I also hit Webs today (amazing amazing amazing) so I have a ton of yarn to photograph as well, not to mention some other new yarn which didn’t get very good pictures in the last round. It hasn’t helped that it’s been raining since Sunday so I haven’t been able to get outside for any pictures.

In other knitting news, apart from the load of yarn I got at Webs I’m ploughing ahead on the Arch Shaped socks for my boss. I opted for the ribbed foot and am slightly winging it based on pictures of other people’s socks as the pattern isn’t written for it. It’s sort of fun and I really like the pattern, I’ll definitely knit myself a pair in the future.

However in other news, since my last post about laziness I have been swimming twice and went running. Unfortunately the running came right before the rain so I haven’t been able to go since. So a little less laziness on that front for once.

I went for a nice short hike up Mt Battie on Sunday with my parents. It was a great hike, I would have happily done it again on Monday except that it rained and the rock faces would have been quick slippery. I logged on to dailymile today to put it in and it’s so depressing to see that I haven’t run for the last four weeks. I really need to get back out and do it, I’ve fallen so behind in C25K. My ankle isn’t bothering me anymore but I’m having a hard time motivating myself. I hope that I’m going swimming today so at least that will be some exercise and I’ll try for a run tomorrow evening.
