Never too late for socks

I seem to always fall into a crack unconsciously, how could it be almost a month since I last posted?
Life has been hectic due to uni assignments, but I still manage to find time to knit, though not as much as usual. There's not much progress to be shown, really. The Cardigan for Arwen is going well, one sleeve is done and I'm working on the body in one piece with about 10" of progress. I've also managed to finally finish a pair of socks
Socktoberfest Mystery Sock
Pattern: TTL Mystery Sock by Kirsten Kapur
Yarn: Posh Yarn Lucia
Needle: 2.5mm
I only managed to finish it 10 days after Socktoberfest is over, but at least the socks are pretty :)

In other news, I went to the brand new, shiny and lovely Socktopus London shop yesterday and bought a high-whorl spindle. Remember that spinning class I took last year? Well it's all slowly coming back to me, I haven't been able to stop spinning since last night.
It's not much for about 3 hours worth of spinning, but I'm slowly getting the hang of it.
Too bad I'll have to leave it for about 2 weeks since I'll be going home again today.
Yep, I'm going home again! The home that's 7279 miles away that I just came back from not too long ago! I'll only be away for 10 days to attend my cousin's wedding. I'm having mixed feelings about this. On one hand, I'm always happy to go home to see my family and the glorious food back home. But the guilt of leaving uni work behind while all my other classmates would be working away is almost killing me, agh.

Well, I'm trying to be positive since I'm lucky enough to get this unexpected holiday!
