Good grief! So much for posting regularly!
Needless to say, the past few weeks have been full to the brim with beginning-of-the-semester fun and craziness. Auditions are over, choir and Vanderbilt Off Broadway (VOB) rehearsals have started, classes are in full swing, and I'm finally settling into some semblance of a routine. :-)
Unfortunately, all this fun business means not a lot of knitting progress :(
The Vilai sock has seen about 2.5 rows of progress in the past 2 weeks:
But I have done pretty well on my simple k3p1 rib sock:
That's just past the heel turn, and I'm ready to pick up the gusset stitches.
I'm just about all settled in my dorm room, too! (And after over 3 weeks, I sure better be!!) I have my lovely crafting basket:
Including some great yarn that I don't think I ever took pictures of:
This is 100% cotton weaving yarn from Halcyon Yarns (Astra brand? O.o Can't remember) This photo doesn't do the color justice, though. It's a gorgeous deep purple. It's destined to be a DRESS YAAAY!!! I have been eying this one dress pattern for at least a year, and I'm finally ready to start working on it. :-)
I haven't taken a lot of pictures of my dorm yet, mostly because it's been a mess up until today when I finally did some serious cleaning, but also because my friends Erin and Joe are over right now to do homework (and blog! yay!) and didn't quite feel like modeling for my blog photos ^^
But I did take this:
I feel like this picture sums up my interests: Star Wars, X-Men, reading, knitting (see pattern books at the bottom of the stack!), my teapot, and a boatload of TEA!!!! :D
And now I'm going to take advantage of the fact that I'm done with homework before midnight and go to bed early! I'll try to blog more often now that I've got a life-rhythm going :-)
Until then, happy knitting!
