I've been really lazy today. Perhaps it's the heat (Sydney is currently experiencing all the summer weather we didn't actually get all summer), but I couldn't really face doing much of anything today. Last week was really hectic, what with the return to uni, a promotion at my job(woo) which meant learning some new stuff, and lots of mad cycling. So today I just sort of pottered about, laid on the couch reading Tennessee Williams plays, did a bit of my uni readings and some knitting.

Speaking of knitting, the French Trellis Scarf is now blocked! It looks great, but I'm waiting until tomorrow when I visit a friend to get some hot action shots in. But now I'm officially in love with lace knitting. My next envisioned project is the Lily of the Valley shawl from Lace Style, but I'm also valiantly resisting the urge to order the Moroccan Days shawl kit so I can knit the shawl and then wear it to Morocco when I finally get there (hopefully early 2009).

I also cast on for the Lace Ribbon Scarf from the new Spring Knitty, which seems to be the new big ticket item on Ravelry. It's a beautiful scarf, and I'm knitting mine up in some black baby alpaca from the stash.

So tonight I'm going to take it easy, eat some chicken and salad, watch Charles Laughton in the Hunchback of Notre Dame, and read Night of the Iguana. Oh, and knit!
