fall break! October 22, 2008

Filed under: crafting,knitting,recap,school — Ren @ 10:04 am

i can hardly believe that it has been two weeks since i last posted! i was super busy in the last few weeks, studying for and then taking my final exams, mostly. after the exams were finished on (last) wednesday, i got to come home for a week and a half break. and here i am. it’s sad to think that i have to go back to school in only a few days. *sigh* but anyway!



first things first, i got to see the yarn harlot last week here in jacksonville. she was hilarous and my mom (a non-knitter) thought she was great, too. we also both won door prizes, so i got yummy new yarn. in the picture, i even got to hold her sock and she is wearing her gorgeous ‘hey, teach’. if you look on her most recent blog post, in the fourth picture down, far left, in the back, and then if you kind of squint, you can see us. i have no idea why anyone except me would want to do that, though. ^^



i finished up my contributions to kristi’s tessalating fish blanket. i used up a bunch of scraps and it was really a lot of fun. i have this feeling that these fishies are going to be smaller than most, but i can’t really help it that i’m a tight knitter, now can i? i can’t wait to see them as part of the blanket!



i have also been busy on the sewing machine. i found the cute box bag pattern here. as you can see, it is just large enough for a sock project. but don’t mention the sock project — it is not getting anywhere quickly. as a sidenote, if you are in my pay-it-forward group (you know who you are), your gifties should be ready soon. the placement of this comment may give you a hint about what your gift will be. perhaps.
