I'm almost on vacations now. Almost all seminars have ended by now, I only have one more class left. And one tutorial meeting, which I'm not looking forward at all. I tried to change my tutor, but it didn't work out. It seems that I'm stuck with that unpleasant person who really doesn't understand my research theme. It's quite frustrating, but "ni modo", as the Mexicans would say.

Even though I kind of have vacations already, I'm still studying and trying to finish one chapter of my thesis. But don't worry, I'm not working too hard either, I'm crafting too... And in couple of weeks, when I travel to Finland (happy happy, joy joy!) I'll have vacations for real. I just can't wait!

By the way, I did get the Lehmus-shawl ready by the wedding. The pictures were taken with boyfriend's camera, that's why I haven't been able to show you anything. But here it is, my very first lace shawl:

I forgot to ask boyfriend to take a pic in the wedding, so this was taken about 2 o'clock in the morning, when we got home. It's also my first hairdo made by a hairdresser.

Here are some more photos o the shawl. I'm pretty happy with it, even though I probably would have made a bigger one, if I had had the time and the yarn necessary. The pattern was quite easy and I noticed that lace knitting is quite addictive! This might be my first shawl, but it won't be the last!

I also made the jewelry for the wedding, but I'll put those photos other day.

Ei sitten muuta kuin Suomessa lankaa hamstraamaan ; )

Juu, lankaa lähtee mukaan varmasti! Ja ehdottomasti ruokaa ja karkkeja! Ehkäpä muyöskin hankin jotkut hauskat kumisaappaat sadekauden ratoksi... Milläpä sitä sitten muuten tarvitisikaan matkalaukkujaan täyttää.
