Another New Jumper
Yes, I've finished another jumper. Nothing very special this time, just something for wearing about the house or when I pop to the shops. This time I didn't procrastinate over sewing it up either, which makes a change. I only finished knitting it this afternoon and I got going on the sewing up immediately.
Knitting keeps me going during the evenings while I'm watching television, and as this one wasn't too complicated to follow, it meant that it grew quite quickly. I should perhaps have been doing some studying rather than working on this jumper this afternoon. I did about an hour and a half on my Human Biology course this morning, but my eyes started to glaze over and I could feel myself drifting towards sleep, so I gave it up for a while. I shall look to see whether there is anything worth watching on television tonight and if there isn't I shall try to spend another hour or so with the books.
There was a message on my student home page on the OU website on Monday letting me know that my first TMA is due soon. As it is not required until 14th November, I don't call that soon. I'm not worried because an hour or so with the TMA will see it ready to send in, but I think it may have been a bit worrying for those new to the OU because this week's reading forms part of the material for the TMA.
On a different note, I see that I have now written more than 150 posts for this blog, and this evening will probably see the visits counter hit the 3000 mark. Not a lot of visitors by the standards of some blogs, but it is more than I ever expected when I started writing this blog in the summer, at a point when I was feeling pretty low. The fact that I regularly get comments to the things I write also helps to brighten my day. So I must say thank you to all of you who take the time to read my blog and write comments; I really do appreciate it.
