Winter is looming, which means that it is time for my annual check-in here, to report that I’ve been able to knit myself a lovely little new sweater in time to protect me against the upcoming November storms. Nothing much to report here: I went for the usual simple shape and stockinette stitch combination, knitted up with a pairing of the most luxurious and soft yarns imaginable. And – no surprise here – it is a winner!

In other news since I last wrote here in April 2017 (!): 2018 saw me on the move again, this time from Glasgow back to London, for a job offer at my favourite museum. I’m very happy with this decision, although I miss Scotland, its landscape and the friends I made there, and although the PhD project had, once again, to be put on the back burner (don’t ask …). But I will get there, in due course. For now, I am enjoying being back in the Big Smoke, and having this amazing view when writing at my little desk in North London:
