so lazy! June 20, 2007

Filed under: knitting,school — Ren @ 10:49 pm
today has been one of those days where i haven’t managed to accomplish anything at all. i’ve been aimlessly wandering around the house, thinking about things i should be doing but having no motivation to actually do them. it’s nice to laze around, but i like to think i’m generally at least a little bit productive. can i tell you that i don’t even have the motivation to take pictures of some of the other knitting projects i’ve finished in the last few days… how sad is that?! *sigh*

thanks for all the good luck wishes on my exam from last week. everything turned out fine with that and i was rather pleased with the exam grade. plus, the first exam is usually the worst because i never know quite what to expect, so hopefully i’ll be less stressed for the next exam, too.

i love the little mini-sock that i knit to fit on the mini sock blocker keychain from sophia. i used leftovers from my last pair of socks (in regia 4-ply color) and a combination of patterns (because, apparently, some of the directions confused me). the sock is just so adorable! i want to make more. ^^ i have to say, though, that i don’t think i’ve ever dropped as many stitches as i did with this on the size 1 needles. luckily, it’s an easy problem to fix.

here are the goodies i got from kelli. baby ull yarn, amish popcorn, and orange & spice tea. i’ve been so spoiled with wonderful goodies recently!

speaking of spoiled… rachel has recently started hand-dyeing yarn over at tallgrass yarns and there is a colorway named after me! isn’t it gorgeous?! those are so exactly my colors. ^^

    wow, you’re famous–you’ve got a colorway named after you, what more could you want?? ;) glad to hear the exam went well. I agree–the first ones are always the more stressful ones because you’re not really sure what kind of test to expect. the tiny sock is absolutely adorable!! I’m feeling the same way–lazing about and not really getting much done! It’s summer, we’re allowed. :)

    I love the sock blocker sock! Someone gave me the blocker kit but I haven’t gotten up the nerve to do such a tiny sock yet…. Thanks for the inspiration! :)
