It's official.....MY HOLIDAY IS HERE!!!!
After days of sleepless night doing my assignments (and having bits of fun), it's finally over! I honestly can't believe I've just finished my first year in university, what the hell have I done so far??
Well...I might have been working, but that doesn't mean I haven't been knitting!

There has been lots of progress going on my Monkey socks. The second sock was cast on straight away and I'm already working on the foot.

Another FO that I've finished about a month ago...

Shetland Triangle
Pattern source: Shetlang Triangle by Evelyn A. Clark from Wrap Style
Yarn: Regia Silk 2 x 50g skeins
Needle: 4.00mm Addi Circular
Comments: I LOVE knitting this shawl. That's for sure. I love watching it grows so quickly the first few repeats. I love how squishy it is before blocking. I love how it grows in the water. I love how the lace pattern comes out all beautiful and delicate after blocking. Well, I guess this love can be applied to most shawls I've knitted and will knit in the future, and I see many many of them. The pattern was very easy to follow and I memorised it after the first repeat. This shawl is truly inspired by this post. Stopping by her blog that night had turned me into a Regia Silk addict. Anyway, the intended recipient went back to the States without telling me, so it'll be sent over to her soon. I really hope she's a worthy recipient and would appreciate it, that's all I ask for when I gift away my handknit item.

I was tagged by Amanda for a meme! It's been a long time since I answered one, but here we go.

7 random things about me:
-I once tried a lavender drink and hated lavender ever since
-I had 6 mascaras when I was 14, and almost never wore them
-I couldn't pronounce "R" when I was a kid
-My dad was very disappointed when he knew I'm a girl, but I ended up being a daddy's girl
-My hair was smelly when I was little, apparently because my mom didn't shave me bald when I was a baby
-I had a serious case of ingrown toenails for years, then had a surgery on my big toe when I was 14
-I once fell asleep during my driving lesson, my hand slid off the steering wheel and shocked my instructor to death

I'm sorry I'm bad at tagging people, but if you want to play along just say I tagged you....

Happy holidays, Yuvee! That monkey sock is cute and I'm a fan of regia silk too, although they may be a bit too delicate for socks :)

I couldn't pronounce "R"s either! "I want to go to McDees to eat flies."

Sweet colours in your new Monkey socks. Oh the shawl is so gorgeous in white. So far I have only knitted one, I guess I am not very good at knitting shawls.
Happy holidays!

The shawl is gorgeous!! And your second pic is inspiring me to actually WEAR a shawl in public like that.
