A blog about knitting, and some other stuff....

Tuesday, November 07, 2006

I guess you haven’t heard from me for awhile, have you? Well, I’m happy to say that I did survive last week. Just barely though. You know it’s bad when you have to skip classes in order to study for other classes….
Oh, and here’s another tidbit I discovered today, my chem final and my math final fall on the same day…. at the same time. For those of you who are contemplating the complete incompetence of my university I’d like to let you know that they’re not really that bad (albeit they still aren’t the smartest group); I’m taking these classes at two different schools for reasons I will not delve into right now, but if you really want to know I’ll be happy to tell you.
On the knitting front: washcloths! No photos though, seeing as I already posted pictures of one and the other two look suspiciously similar. But never fear! I ordered some yarn from knitpicks and it should arrive soon and I’ll have some lovely pictures of that for you when it arrives.
I was so excited to find knitpicks. First off, I’m a poor college student. Knitpicks yarn is real yarn, it’s not some acrylic mess that you can’t make anything nice out of and at the same time I can afford enough to knit a whole sweater. Second off (umm, that doesn’t sound right…. Secondly?) there is no local yarn shop near me. Seriously. Okay, not quite seriously, there is one little one about 40 minutes away where everything is way too expensive. So I’m just going to say there is no local yarn shop. So for a long time all my yarn has come from craft stores, which are also rather expensive and have a limited selection of anything that is not acrylic. So I’m really excited about this knitpicks thing and I hope it turns out to be a good thing. I’ll keep you posted!
