Knit Out and Crochet too 2007

Again, with the no photos!!

I am working too many hours, grading too many papers, and knitting too little. :(
But I am glad to check out what everyone else is doing.

The TKGV's Knit Out will be held 10/6/07. Don't forget to come out. I just helped sort all the prizes. There will be many cool give-aways.

See you at the Farmer's Market in Virginia Beach, at 10:00 - 3:00 this Sat.

a bit of knitting

I know it isn't much, but here's some of the knitting I have completed lately. All other recently knitted items look... much the same.

I haven't started on the Audrey sweater from Melissa Leapman's Hot Knits. I can't make the Wed. night knit alongs. :( Teaching this kiddie lit class for VWC sounded good at the time, but I think the knitting time is better for my mental health. If I lose my mind this semester, everyone will know why.

Anyway, I haven't done more than knit the swatch, muddle through the math....because I wanted to use Blue Sky Alpaca's cotton yarn for the sweater... I must pay for this change by fiddling with math.

A colleague and I had to go to Va Tech today for a meeting. Because I need the knitting time, I almost asked him to drive... but it is my car... and I didn't do it. Ten+ hours of lost knitting time. :( So.... I now feel compelled to go knit.
