I would just like to announce: I got a 3.4 in my class. Before the final, my average was a 2.333 (two wrong tests and a screw job of a TA will do that). This means that I SCHOOLED the final!!!


Ahem. Back to knitting. TYVM

There is a word for this...

I finished the hood on the Central Park Hoodie. It is so pretty I could cry. I went to pick up the stitches for the button band....I don't have a circ long enough. I could have sworn that I had at least one 60" length cord for my Knitpicks interchangeables...

*screams into hands* I really wanted to have this done before I started the next assignment for test knitting! *cries* Now I have to wait to see if I can get one quickly from KnitPicks....


....which begs the question....what do I knit on until then? (3+ days without knitting?!?! Unthinkable!)

FO: Vine Lace Toe Up Socks Test Knit

They are done! So let me explain, I was test knitting for the lovely Phoenix Bess. I can really only include pictures, so here you go. But let me say, I LOVED knitting these and helping make the pattern better (i hope)

These are a present for my Mother, since she helped me move out of our old place and get everything carted up to the new place. Socks are a good payment, right?

Obviously, since I was a test knit, I didn't do any mods to the pattern. The yarn is Regia Sockotta (which ends up looking like Fair Isle in pastels if you do it in stockinette)

Next up, back to working on the Central Park Hoodie. I am to the point of the hood where I need to start the decreases. You may recall (or not) that I decided to continue the center back cables up the hood and now they will continue over the top and meet up with the front band. So I had to search for an explanation of how to modify the pattern in order to be able to make this happen. I did find the most amazing explanation ever. It's at Random Threads, the second post on this page, titled "Hood Acompli". It's so spectacular, I can't even speak.

Back to knitting!

And now for something completely different....

Ah, Monty Python. I think I will be making a shawl next. A crazy ass intricately laced shawl. Something that would make lesser brains melt (hehe). I am gonna make a shawl. Yep. A big 'un.....

......Just as soon as I finish the CPH. ( needs to be done)

Someone, anyone, bring me back a skein of something. Don't care what. I just want a skein!

Drive by Blogging!

Hi guys, just wanted to update after my week of hell.

The moving is done! There are boxes Everywhere in the new apartment. We have done zero unpacking.

I got the cleaning done on the old apartment. It SPARKLES dangit.

The test I was stressing about? Turns out the guy gave us the WRONG test! Test for a completely different class! Wtf. So I get to retake it on Monday. Oh joy. *grimace*
And I worked until midnight last night doing inventory
