Things are finally getting back to normal this week after the hell that is finals week. Ugh. After a semester where I only really enjoyed one out of four classes, I could not wait to be finished. Now that I am, I have FIVE WHOLE WEEKS before classes start up again. Nice.
Thanks to everyone for your kind words on my Baby Stix news! I hit the AC Moore and the JoAnn's yesterday looking for what I thought would be the easiest thing to find on short notice- burgundy and mustard colored Wool-Ease (yes, Harry Potter colors) to work on gender neutral baby stuff, and to my surprise, it wasn't anywhere to be found. What the hell?? So instead, I bought 3 balls of black and grey Wool-Ease to design myself a decent maternity sweater, since there are so few non-matronly patterns available. Depending on how it turns out, I will either show you pics, or try to submit it to Knitty or something. Leah was giving me some advice on designing, so I'm going to give it a shot and see what happens.
I worked all weekend on weaving in the billion ends on the Sesame cardi that have been hanging over my head all semester. I'm such a jerk for breaking the yarn after each stripe, but I can never remember to run the other color up the side anyway. Now I just have to sew up the seams and I'll finally be finished.
