wow, life has been busy lately!! there are so much things going on, i never get around taking pictures of my wip's anymore... even commenting on your blogs is getting harder and harder these days. but anyway, those of you following me on instagram will have already noticed:  i've been a crafty busy bee lately! so here's a major update! with lots of pics too, to make up for the lack of updates. ;)
i finished my vanilla latte socks! did these turn out gorgeous or what?!
i love everything about them, the self striping yarn, the colours, the pattern, the fact that the stripes line up without even trying (!)...
(feet off the table!)
 i also learned some new techniques...
like the star toe...
... and the eye of partridge heelflap! (definitely a winner!)

i also knit some piggies for my mom, as goodbye-gifts for her co-workers.  
(she works as an accountant for a pig-breeding-company... sounds really weird but it explains the pigs ;)) she did most of the knitting and i put them together! we made ten of these and they turned out rather cute, she put a label around their neck with a little personal message, really nice. :)
 oink oink!  look at my little curly tail!
i also love how my mom got her knitting mojo back, right now she's knitting a new scarf for my dad with some of my stash yarn. comes in handy, when someone is stashbusting for you. ;)
what have you been up to? i'd love to know!!
