grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

knit me more time...

now back to some knitting

I handed my 4th draft of my thesis to my advisor this morning. And now my brain feels like mush. I watched some Little House on the Prairie, and surfed the internet without direction for a while. I start dog sitting tonight, and I plan on using the time to catch up on some other work, and also on some knitting. I got all my not-quite-done-yet WIPs together. I am going to finish the last 3 inches of the sleeve of Jo's shrug this week and then block it. I also want to finish the strap to my knitting bag, and then try felting it by hand. I can also start the sleeves of my orange cardigan. Yay! Time to knit!! Here are some future projects I am planning: 1) The Knitting Pure & Simple Cardigan Vest. I already have the yarn for this- a wonderful Bartlet's Worsted in an oatmeal color. 2) Socks! Enough already! It is time to not be afraid of socks. I have the yarn and I want to cast on soon for these. 3) And speaking of socks, I am thinking of making all socks or slippers for holiday presents this year. I could make everyone these great fuzzy feet slippers but without my own washer to felt in, that might be difficult. 4) A sweater for Jo. I think she wants this cool zippered sweater and it is made with Peace Fleece Yarn so she just has to pick out colors. That's a lot of knitting on my plate. Not to mention some other academic-type work. But, for now I will just try to bask in this pre-comment-draft-handed-in-happiness. Even though right now it just feels like sleepiness.
