The heat is on!

And that's for sure. Yesterday (and on Friday) we had a temperature record here - 30 degrees Celsius (86 Fahrenheit). What did you say, that's not much? Well, I ain't talkin' about outdoors here but inside my apartment. Yep, living at the top floor does have some disadvantages... but the view of the couple in one of the apartments in the block out the back still has their Christmas tree (which has turned into a brownish-yellow by now) up in their living room is priceless. And now, I have no idea what they are doing with this tree... maybe they want to keep it till next Christmas? They sure are environmentally conscious. I think they even decorated it with Easter eggs at Easter.

Rita has asked me about the instructions for the baby booties. To answer your question, a friend of mine has handed it on to me, and she had it from somebody else. It is in German, but if you're interested, I could translate it for you and put it on here. You'd just have to be patient with me, because I have lots to do with the preparation of my thesis, and there's also another paper I have to write (on Richard Nixon's foreign politics).
I haven't been knitting much in this heat lately, plus due to the Uni stuff... although I managed to finish another pair of baby booties in off-white and a rich yellow. They are a different style, more like sandals, and I have to look for some buttons. I hope to get that done soon... although I'm not too optimistic, because other work is piling up, quite a things need to be done in here, and I don't like going to the city when it's so damn hot. But the heat will be on for another little while...

It's about time

...for another post, at least that's what I say. I've been busy lately because I need to prepare my Magister thesis (pretty much like a Master thesis), so I have tons to read and I tried not to use the computer for blogging during the day. And at night, K had it most of the time. Anyways, I didn't get much knitting done at all over the past week.
Yesterday, as it was so nice outside, K and I decided to take a blanket to the nearest park to do some reading there, and I brought my latest project along for a little photo shoot as well.

Quite a few people I know are going to have babies over the next couple of months, so I thought I'd make some booties. The pair above still needs a cord to tie them up and I need to weave in the ends. The yarn is nothing special, some baby merino stuff I picked up at the LYS. I'm already working on the next pair, they are going to be sandals in yellow and white, and I'm using the needles K gave me a while ago. Those needles are just so adorable; they are made from rosewood and are just so smooth! Maybe I should take a picture of them too... me loves me some nice needles!

Something fresh, something new

Hello my friends!
This is my very first post on the new blog. Most of you probably know my old one, and I'd love to say welcome to you all. You'll find my old blog here, and if you want, you can read all about my history there.

Well, 'nuff said about the past. d.knit is about the future, after all! Stay tuned for some knitting content soon, today it's too late to take pictures.
Good night, and good luck!
