Stick 'em up, pardna.

Hello, blog! It's nice to be back again. I had to take a bit of an enforced break from blogging because my WiFi got hacked somehow and someone used up my whole monthly data allowance in four hours while I was asleep in bed :( My service provider was very nice about it but there's not much they can do other than tell you how to change your password and remind you to turn off the WiFi modem when you aren't using it. That said, in the two weeks that I've been unable to use my Internet at home I have finished *four* knitted items and completely refocused and clarified my thesis topic, so maybe it's something I need to consider doing more of in the future? Sometimes I wonder if I would have finished my undergraduate degree if the Internet like it is now had been around then...

I will be sharing the finished stuff with you soon but the most exciting news I have is that *dum dum DUM* I have finally started seaming my Central Park Hoodie!

The bits that are looking like arms in a hold-up are actually the fronts of the cardy. I don't know if it's my inexperience or if seaming takes a long time but it took me a full movie (Dark Victory starring Bette Davis, an excellent drama in which Humphrey Bogart YOLOs) to do just the sleeve caps. Hopefully I'll get faster as I go, but anyway I'm pretty excited - six years work is finally drawing to a close. I don't care if it fits or that the colour is ridiculously unfashionable - I just want the damn thing done! And done it will be, very very soon.
