As I'm writing this, I'm sitting short-sleeved on my parents' balcony, tanning my legs and eating freshly harvested, sweet tomatoes. We're having a lovely fall over here: cool, crisp mornings and warm, sunny days. Windy, too. This is my idea of a perfect season... Things at the hospital are rather slow in the afternoons right now, too, so I've been let go early the last few days, to enjoy the afternoon sun. (In the mornings I seem to amuse our Consultant with my cheery "fine"s when he's asking how I'm doing. It seems a lot of students faint the first few times... ;)
Saturday I spent helping a friend move to the lovely city of Augsburg. I mostly got to see the inside of the local IKEA store and not much of the city, but I will be back to see the medieval architecture (and my friend, of course). The train trip took a good 2.5h there, and another 3.5h back, so I got busy with my knitting needles!
It's a free Ravelry pattern: Susie's Reading Mitts, modified with one line of cables. I can read English knitting patterns, yay! ;)
Self-stitched outfit: my polka dot Sorbetto and shortened red skirt.
I woke early on Sunday and did some prep work, before having coffee with my parents. Can you guess what it is? :D
Afterwards we went to visit grandparents at Lake Constance. We had some lovely Italian food (Scaloppine al limone, one of my favs!) by the lake and it totally felt like a mini holiday. :)
Being down here really is lovely, although I'm also looking forward to being back in Berlin on Friday...
