More "Studying"

I'm finding it extraordinarily difficult to care about finals anymore, which may be a teeny little problem as I have 2 left this week - International Law and Family Law - both with the potential to kick my ass if I don't study at least a little bit. But (I know, you totally see it coming) - I decided my time would be better spent updating the blog and finishing a few projects.

Rebekah's Scarf

my own, with inspiration from the Fishtail Lace Scarf

Yarn: my own hand-dyed blue faced leicester sock yarn, 1 skein (other colors for sale here)

Notes: My lovely roommate fell in love with this colorway when she was helping me re-skein it after it dried. She asked me whether, if she bought the yarn, I would knit her a "really long, really skinny" scarf out of it. I told her that I would love to, and this is what I came up with! I decided not to block out the lace, so instead I just gave it a quick steam-iron so it would lie flat. She loves it, I love that she loves it, and it's a great use for yarn that just may be too lovely to 'waste' on one's feet.

Hot Water Bottle Cover

my own

Yarn: my own hand-dyed worsted weight wool, 1 skein

Notes: I'm very happy with how this turned out. I'm really happy with the colorway (blues, greens, and a splash of yellow), and I think the little hot water bottle sweater is just adorable.

Right - that pretty much covers the extent of my current knitting content. I'm making a basic 2x2 ribbed hat out of some leftovers, and I'm thinking about what my next big project will be... but nothing too exciting. So, in the grand tradition of the knit-blogger without interesting content, I present:

Distracting Pet Photos

Cricket, fed up with "that dog-thing" hanging around all the time while S is out of town, decides to disguise herself as a present with hopes that someone will take her to a dog-free home.

When not planning her escape, Cricket joins teammate Abby to continue training for the Synchronized Sunny Spot competition. Here, they demonstrate the extremely difficult Multi-Elevational Full Forward Layout.

This was followed by the equally challenging Double Tuck Couch Snuggle. This manouver is especially difficult due to the extreme closeness required.

And finally, they rounded out their morning session with a Stacked Perpendicular Stretch.
