And ten days later...

All sorts of interesting things have happened.

There's been knitting.  Unfortunately, a fairly large amount of which looked like ass and had to be frogged.  But at least one project was completed and turned out quite well:


My Blue Green Broadripples.  I love the way the colors striped one way on the leg, pooled up into interesting patterns on the heels, and then striped up differently on the feet.  They fit great and are very comfy.  Definitely a pattern I'd recommend.

There was a trip overtown to take an exam:


Which turned out equally well!  Literacy in Elementary Education is over and done with, 6 upper level credits added, two semester's worth in 6 months.  I think my Psych final is up next on the list, then another Stat exam.  That one really gives me the weeblies.

Oh, and did I also make it overtown to see Wendee at the Hazel Knits Trunk Show?


Yep!

Most of the rogue colorways were gone by the time I got there, but there was still plenty of soft, delicious yarn.


You could even taste it!


Look at all those yummy little cakes!  Set up with pre-labeled cards so each visitor could make their own personal take-home color card.  Great fun, marvelously useful, and absolutely zero calories!  Could you ask for more?

Well, actually...these two followed me home:


On the left is "Equinox" one of Wendee's new colors and the one on the right is a very bright, cheery yellow rogue.  I don't know what I'm going to do with them yet, but based on the length of my Ravelry queue there's plenty of possibilities.  I'm always open to more suggestions though!

"a fairly large amount of which looked like ass" Kath, that was too funny. I almost had soda coming out of my nose. Oooo, Equinox, very pretty. Can't wait to see some goodness coming out of that. How's the traveling knit thingy going, had any word? xxoo
