Heart, Sock & Brain in a Coil

Well, I finally finished the sock. Yes, just one. I searched campus for some juicy red & yellow leaves and set them up around this space for some photography of my sock. Unfortunately, I will be severely reprimanded (again) for showing you any more pictures of my this orange *blob* will have to do (for now). Now that the sock and the pattern is officially finished, I can get back to my academics.

I already went through "Doom's Day Tuesday:" 5 hours worth of classes, plus a paper, a speech and a quiz due in the same discussion class!... plus catch-up reading and knitting!

I probably will be taking a leave of absence from the blog for several days, to focus on my assigned readings & study like crazy all week for my Botany exam that is coming up soon (which will run me over and leave me plastered to the "leafy" ground until the public works can come and scrape me off with a shovel and stamp "road kill" will a scarlet "F" on my forehead.)

Anyways, it's been a little quiet here in blogland. Although I haven't been posting an incredible amount of actual knitting, I do hope that in time that we can get the lurkers out and see if we can make this into a "learning community," one with comments, suggestions, and feedback. That's really the purpose for my blog (not just me giving out patterns or providing pretty pictures to just look at.) To those who comment regularly, I give you much thanks and hugs! I appreciate your feedback greatly!! I value opinions (and constructive criticism, as long as it has "sensitive" consideration)
BUT... Fall is here, so the bulk of the knitting will commence! Get ready for it! It's going to be good!!!

I want to see the sock! I'm totally intrigued by socks. I haven't quite tackled them yet. They're kind of like the holy grail of knitting to me. Once I get socks down I think I can truly own the title of knitter.

And good luck with the Biology. If I could major in it anyone can.

I love campuses, love classes, love learning, (and yes, I love taking notes...I's weird). But I don't miss papers and the panic of tests. I didn't take knitting to school with me. Sharp pointy objects were just a bit much for me to handle with the stress of classes. Good luck and read on!

The sock looks intriguing...I love stopping in to see what's new, and I love listening to the nature sounds while I read. Good idea! I'm only newly addicted to sock-making, but I hope there's no 12 step there?
Keep up the fab work!

I hope your studying (and knitting) are going well!

Good luck with studying. Thanks for commenting on my blog and nudging me over the edge into sock knitting. I picked a pattern and have half a sock. I also started a Maggie Sefton book.
