School starts again for me on Monday, and it is causing a range of emotions for me. Part of me is excited to get back into it, part of me is terrified that I am going to let everything fall apart this term. Grad school has so many responsibilities.. and this term involves a lot of work that is outside the classroom ie: working with a nursing home, giving public speeches etc... it is all pretty scary. The worst part is that I have an onsite class this term on Tuesday nights... so no more knit night for me.. I will miss you guys!
I have gotten some great knitting done over the holiday's, including the Yarn Harlot's unoriginal hat. Which took about 3 hours!
I used a chunky Knit Picks, but I can't remember the name right now. I like that hat, but I wished it hadn't pooled/spiraled like that.
I have almost completed a pair of Waving Lace socks in Knit Picks Essential Tweed. I really love this pattern, and I am super excited to finish them. The only downside is that I left the finished sock at a friend's house, and won't be able to get it back until next week :(
Finally, I have cast on for the Tangled Yoke sweater I have been dreaming. I have wanted to make this since I first saw it, but I wanted to make it in the Rowan Felted Tweed that the pattern called for, which I just could not afford. Luckily I received a gift certificate for Fiberphilia from Mike's family, which meant that I could have it! Thank you!!
