Getting Back into the Swing of ThingsI think the hardest part of starting a new semester is nailing down the new routine. I have classes at new times, new professors with different ideas of "reasonable workload," and a whole new set of tasks for my journal. Plus, this stupid brief won't be finished up until tomorrow, so that's hanging over my head as well.
But overall, I'm happy with my schedule, especially as it seems to allow me plenty of time to head to the Happy Place for late night on Wednesdays!
Abby is also enjoying my new schedule - I'm home most afternoons, so she gets to come over and keep me company.
And I also have time to knit - I'm in the finishing stages of my Rogue Cardigan - I sent a sample of yarn to the nice folks at Zipperstop, and they're hopefully sending me a zipper that will match. Thanks to my, ummm, unintentional shading variations in the dyeing process, I knew there was no way I could pick out a zipper from the color cards on the internet, so I'm grateful that they were willing to help me match my yarn. And of course, I'm also working on the ubiquitous sock for S...
S, as far as I'm concerned, will be getting a LOT of hand-knit socks. He gets SO excited when I start a new pair of socks for him, and he wears his hand-knit socks every day until he runs out of pairs. He says they "massage his feet." Plus, he shows people that he's wearing hand-knit socks. So, despite the 10.5 EE feet, he gets more socks.
