Come sailing with me...

Come sailing with me (AU$38) available @

Come sailing with me on a journey that is my PhD studies and my wedding planning. Some people said if you want to complicate your PhD, you should get married. And I'm going to do just that. ^^

I haven't been blogging much as I've been pretty much occupied with my studies... I'm happy to say I did make my debut as a research during a conference late last month. While it was nerve wrecking, I must admit, I actually did feel like a real researcher. I guess after at least a year of being an assistant, it feels different to be able to present as the lead author. I think I will continue to be nervous when faced with such situations, but I'll persist. ^^

Weddings...weddings... I must admit at the moment the whole wedding things have been fun. I guess it's because T is the type of guy who enjoys the process of planning a wedding, so he's very involved. Which is nice, because at times I can get him to do stuff, while he lets me do all the fun bits like trying on dresses, colours etc...

I just hope things continue to look up the next year. Can you believe it? It's already December.

I must admit I have not been blogging much. While the creative mind is still engaged with such pieces shown above (Hana Brooch), I've been occupied with weddings.

But I will aim to blog more. If anything else, maybe I should blog about my wedding planning adventures.

knitting night & a new project!

We return to our usual programming... knitting!

In January, Anuja had a brilliant idea of hosting a knitting night for a couple of her girlfriends. So we gathered, each brought a dish and we created a monthly tradition! Projects that was started/continued on the first night; a blanket and 5 scarves!

In February, I finished my long-awaited KIP!

Then March, I hosted it in my house. :)

Projects started: 3 scarves, 1 garment
Project continued: 2 scarves
Project completed: 1 scarf and 1 blanket

Anuja finished her blanket. ^^

Breanna completed one scarf and started another. ^^

Roopa continued on her multi-coloured, recycled silk scarf. ^^

And after much knitting hiatus, I've started on Stefanie Japel's Fitted Knit - Puffed Sleeved Feminine Cardigan. This whole piece is knitted in one, except for a little pick-up around the front edges for the button bands.

Even though the original is in red, I've done mine in a pink-ish red Zara. I'm quite excited by it, though there are some bits about the pattern that I worry about... :P

Anyway, wish me luck! At least with knitting nights continuing every month, I get some motivation to finish this. ^^

I guess when one chapter of one's life closes a reflection is in order. Today is my last day of work from the place where I've worked for the past 1 year and 3 months. There were highs and lows during the working period, but's just part of working. :)

There were little perks of course, that I enjoyed. For example, the whole "my office" idea. Although it was of little importance (I love sitting with people, but some people might have found me too chatty), it was nice when I really just want silence to do my work. Working in uni, I love the opportunity to learn and being able to do courses I want, it was good too. Then the people. I said today in my thank you speech (whoever leaves get morning tea), I was indeed sincere in saying that one of the things I'll miss the most is the people. However, that being said, it is nice to say that some people are my friends, and not just my colleagues.

Now....the things to look forward now that I'm not working in this job.... no wait. I better clarify what is going on next. I'm actually starting my phd and working 1 day a week at an old department where I used to work when I first graduated in.


OTHER than the actual studying and minimum (or maximum...;;^^) work....

I want to be able to:
1. Knit more!
2. Knit more!
3. Knit more!
4. Do more of my jewellery.
5. Learn more of things I want to learn eg. Japanese, more jewellery making stuff etc...
6. Clean my study...seriously. :P
7. Maybe revamp my room a bit to make it look nicer?
8. Get involved more with networking opportunities...
9. Just be nicer in general, ie. because I don't have work pressure, maybe I won't get annoyed so easily? Maybe I should just knit more to destress... :)

I'm sure there are a whole heaps of things I want to do... but I guess they'll come to me later. ^^
