Why hello. It’s been…. forever!
I’m currently in the middle of my delightfully long winter break, with 2 full weeks left before I go back to school. Last semester was incredibly intense and I barely got through in one piece with my sanity intact.. but I did it. With A’s in everything but one class, which I got a B in… so yay. Once break hit I was able to start catching up on my MUCH needed sleep, which has been awesome!
I don’t even know where to START with catching this blog up with everything that’s been going on. Suffice it to say, for me, as for everyone, life has undergone many changes, many trials have been met, many hurdles overcome… and all the rest of that cliché business. But I’m still in school, still a music major (though I’m not sure I’ll stay one… I might end up switching to English. I’ll never graduate!), still teaching piano and working in retail (though for how much longer I’ll have THAT job is somewhat worrisome), still a huge nerd and still the ‘mama’ to the most awesome dog in existence. And, still knitting!
This break, I’ve knit a hat:
It’s the Who hat! The cables are actually little owls. I still need to add eyes, but I love love LOVE this hat… it’s adorable and funky and sooooo me!
I finished my crocheted bathmat as well:
So. Cute. I’m thrilled with how it came out.
I’ve been slowly teaching all of my friends who don’t know how to knit… to knit. And hanging out with fellow knitters has been a huge part of winter break for me! On friday 5 of us got together and worked on our projects… I made a washcloth in the time:
Nothing too complicated, I alternated garter stitch, moss stitch, and yo k2tog lace. It’s really squishy and amazing.
And now I’m back to working on the Salina sweater from Rowan Vintage Knits. I’m really hoping to get it finished this winter – it’s been on the needles for a LONG time and I need to stop neglecting it and get it done! I’ve found a new tv show that I’m quite in love with – Dr. Who – and it has been providing good entertainment while I knit. And that’s what I think I’m going to go do now.
