Just in time to start up classes again in the AM. I've just waded through over 50 e-mails, and I've got 120+ blog posts to browse. I promise that journal entries and photos are forthcoming, and until then here's a sample! I still can't believe we made it all happen!

Sorry, no real time for an update, here's my news:
#17 Slaughterhouse-Five, liked it quite a bit, audiobook, more later.
Heading down to New Orleans at 2:30am Saturday.
BUSY as all hell with studio work.
DIDN'T fail my Jazz midterm:)
DID file my taxes!
Also, my bedroom flooded this past weekend, so I'm sleeping in the living room. It SUCKS.
Also also, I signed a lease today for a room for next semester. I'm totally excited. My own room. Oh bliss, oh joy!

I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to post this update, but I took the pictures last week! This is a bit of what I've been up to in the knitting world. The above were knitted for my friend Amanda's aunt in exchange for a new set of dpn to knit them with! Great trade, in my opinion! I've knit this pattern several times now and each time I do it a bit differently. This time was my favorite for sure! I lengthened everything, the cuffs, the body, the top cuffs and the thump, and knit it all about 1/4th smaller than the pattern calls for. The result is really snug and warm! I think they won't lose their shape as quickly as my own pair did.
The pattern was Fetching by Cheryl Niamath
The yarn was Tosca from Lang Yarns.
My perpetual WIP is this lady here:
Forecast by Stephanie Japel
Knit with Bollicine Victor from Cascade
Again it's slightly modified, no bobbles, longer waist, and I'll need to knit in a wider button band than the pattern calls for. It's been a challenge, to say the least, but I feel like I'm finally getting somewhere with it!
