Half A SweaterLast night, due to the snow, my aerobics class was cancelled. :( But I did take advantage of the extra time to (1) watch survivor as well as csi, and (2) make significant progress on assembling Ocean. The left front and back are attached, the left sleeve is almost completely attached. This weekend I'll finish attaching the sleeve and sew it up, and also properly measure for the button-hole placement. I also made good progress on Ocean's second sleeve at the gym and on the bus. I don't think I'll finish Ocean by next week, but maybe the week after? I really want to wear it! :)
My friend is still learning to knit- her mom pulled out her old needles, and was showing her a bit. I don't know whether she'll really "get the bug" and learn or not- but since she's a teacher and has yet ANOTHER day off of work due to snow, she should have plenty of time to practice! I'm jealous, although actually I don't mind coming in usually- especially days like today where I have a project to keep me busy. And I'll also get to go to the gym, which is nice.
I'm wearing my Aran today- between the sweater and the hat, I'm a veritable blur of handknits! :) I am really enjoying the hat, though- which is great, especially since I have ALWAYS hated hats. My mom recalls many struggles to get me to wear those cute baby caps- she said I could throw them farther across the room than she could. Apparently I was born hating hats. But I like the one I made... especially when my ears are getting cold- and it's nice, no hat hair!
Tonight, weather permitting, my boyfriend and I are going to go out for Thai food and live jazz... yummy! I'm really excited, and hope the weather cooperates, since I've been looking forward to going all week. I know, big dork. ;)
The Latin phrase for today:
"by the grace of God (with God's favor)"
