After being ill for a couple of days, sleeping none stop and drinking coke to avoid the sugar crash, I had the energy to knit way into the night. 2am and I'm ever so tired but just cant sleep.
So I followed a new pattern for a flower, using double sided needles. It took a lot longer than using regular needles but took less sewing up than the roses. I also made Faith a present that I am sporting in the second photo :)
Z z z can I fall asleep now and stop listening to Heaven 17?

Over the past week I've started writing posts but have been so busy they have been left unfinished! I'll be home in a few days so once I'm back I can do a full write up, making this a pre-blog in a moment of solitude.
I have had the most amazing last few days in Bournemouth and have reached a shade slightly darker than eggshell white! My amazing new tan is making me feel confident and fabulous! It's either that or the lovely people I've been surrounded by. I think it can be easy to take these people for granted especially when your up in the clouds and not quite ready to come down. But they're there for you always and I know I'll love them forever - maybe this is what true love is, that sex and the city idea our best friends are our soulmates.
It's been a week of wishing, mainly for tuna and cheese paninis and yumyums! But also for more adventure, I hope when I come back during the summer I can go on the swan boats, which I have been desperate to do for two years but never asked anyone to go with me.
Speak up Louise or you'll never do anything you really want to.
Finally, Faith and I also spotted potential graduation dresses, if I had £60 it'd be mine. If I had more I'd be in 'Holland' with Lucy Kendrick! How I miss her and our pizza nights. I can't wait to be in my house next year, it'll be a blast!

Tonight I picked up my (old) 8 needles and started knitting again. For my Nans 70th Birthday I decided to knit her a bunch of flowers! I'm working on roses at the moment and as I left my double sided needles at home I'm limited on the patterns I can follow.
A couple of weeks ago Nan and I visited the cheap shop to buy some wool, I asked her to pick the colours for a patchwork I wanted to make! Little did she know it was for the flowers! So hopefully she'll love them.
This is the pattern I used for the flower, it was easy to follow and gave a great result! I'll adapt it slightly so the flowers are on wires rather than on a pin.
