Knit purl knit knit

Now that I’ve gotten back into knitting, I’ve finally finished scarf #2 – will post pattern soon! It’s cream wool with coffee-colored fibers for interest; warm and snuggly — not itchy (which, for someone with major skin sensitivities is a serious accomplishment). There’s something really awesome about making something you can wear and be proud of =) Seed stitch border, single-stitch cable inset, central interlocking and continuous cables — easier than you might think.

School starts on Monday. Ugh.

Say that three times fast.

Physical therapy this morning; had four different problems in my neck (joy!), impacting various muscles in my chest and back – seem to be somewhat improved. Mom and I ventured off to Costco (a frightening prospect this time of year), came home, made dinner (potato leek soup), and had a nice quiet evening at home. Scarf #2 is coming along quite nicely (well over halfway done) so we’ll see when I’ll finally finish it!

Ahhh, the first day of winter break…! Boyfriend comes home tonight! In two hours and 18 minutes!! In the meantime, I finished his scarf/Christmas present today! Isn’t it pretty? The yarn doesn’t photograph very well (it’s a dark, mossy green and kinda fuzzy) but you get the idea. I’m so excited it’s not even funny! I’m going to head out to the airport in an hour or so and I honestly don’t know what I’m going to do with myself until then! AH!

Up at 7AM, showered, dressed and out the door by 7:25AM, at the dentist’s office shortly thereafter and curled up in the waiting room, listening to The Picture of Dorian Gray free through LibriVox on my iPhone. Seriously, LibriVox is a pretty spiffy organization – enlisting volunteers to read and record literature in the public domain as audiobooks. Totally awesome.

Finished the BF’s scarf over the weekend and spent a few days trying to find a new cable pattern to use up this creamy wool yarn I have – harder than you would think! It’s surprisingly difficult to find a scarf pattern, using cables, around 35 stitches wide. So, I invented my own. I took a few patterns I liked, all around 45-50 stitches, and modified them to fit my needs. I’ll let you know how it turns out (maybe pictures?) but so far so good!

Came home, slept for a little bit, made up my flashcards, wrote the take-home part of my American Art final. Two finals tomorrow: 17th century Rome at 8:30 (!?) and American art at 2:30PM. GO GO GO.
