I'm finally back again at London, which means life is back to normal, where everything is self service.
Going home was good, I got to shop and eat A LOT, but the best part of all was probably getting to see my adorable nephews. And getting this
My new toy, Apple MacbookPro 15.4". Pretty cool, huh? My dad was trying to force me into buying the 17" version, but it was just too intimidating for me. Especially since my old notebook was a mere 11". I haven't got around learning all the cool things I can do with it yet, but I'll just take my time and have fun with it. Oh, check out the little box at the background, I got a new iPod Shuffle too! I own an iPod Video which is great, but it's just way too bulky for my less than occassional workout session.
Oh, and we have an FO too!

Yarn: Phildar Impact No. 3 1/2, 100% Acrylic
Needle: 4mm 40cm circular
Comments: I was worried I couldn't pull off the look, but I think it looks okay, not that I'm going to be wearing it anyway. Since I used thinner yarn and smaller needles and have bigger-than-average head I cast on 90 sts instead of the required 68 sts. I'm loving the seed stich, real neat.

It really was super easy to make. I used the pure alpaca yarn I got from Florence and size 5mm needle. I, as usual, was too lazy to swatch, but I think it will turn out fine even though I use thinner yarn and smaller needle. I'm hoping this would be a quick knit, as knitting in parts makes the progress seems much faster. And the colour is also Project Spectrum appropriate.
