contrary to popular belief, i have not actually fallen off the earth. rather, life has been relaxing and basically unexciting. i got home fine, spent nearly a week totally cleaning and organizing my room (which looks basically amazing now; i impressed myself), and spent the next week getting up at one in the afternoon and playing dragon warrior on my PS2. my boyfriend went to london and came back (with thousands of pictures of the trip). i went to the doctor about my wrist and got referred to a specialist who i can’t see until next week (though the wrist is feeling much better). i got accepted into my graduate program, which only further complicates things when people ask where i’m at in my college career. i started my online summer class. i bought a whole bunch of new clothes, so i am no longer as bitter about the whole clothing situation. and i also decided that i certainly couldn’t handle not knitting during this two week stretch. i’ve been finishing up items for “afghans for Afghans,” since they are due at the end of next week.

mittens (pair #2)
pattern: warm woolies thick mitts
yarn: patons classic merino wool color deep olive (held doubled)
needles: size 10.5 dpns
size: small
comments: more mittens. sorry for the bad picture!

child’s hat
pattern: bev’s basic hat
yarn: bendigo woolen mills 8ply color dusky rose and patons classic merino wool color deep olive held doubled throughout
needles: size 10 16″ circulars
size: small
comments: a nice, classic hat for a child. blogger is being so stupid that i want to just attack something. grr.

since it was also mother’s day, i finally felted the bowl i knit for mom. it matches the little business card holder i knit her for Christmas. i love love love how this turned out. i put Peterbrooke (aka amazing) chocolate in it. she really liked the gift. ^^

i would do more about the specs for this, but i can’t handle blogger’s line break stupidity. it’s a felted bowl from one skein in double-stranded paton’s SWS color geranium. i used size 15 dpns and i think i made the smaller bowl.

p.s. i got tagged for a meme by g-girl and will probably do it in my next post (whenever that might be).
