So, like I posted, I survived the test. Now I have to survive waiting the 6-8 weeks while they figure out whether or not I passed. Meanwhile, I get to study for comps (which i need to pass to graduate). My program lets us take comps instead of writing a thesis. (Thank the powers that be).
One day last week, in the midst of being out of my mind, I come home to my mailbox which has a lovely RAOK from Angela!!!
I had started to rip it apart, but hastily put it back together in my attempt to be a good blogger.
Half the fun of the package was opening it! Angela interchanged between black and white crepe paper...
with bits of goodness stuck between each layer... so you unwrapped more and more goodies...
until you got to the end.... there were far more layers than pics, but I got (ahem) impatient and tired of waiting to see what was in the middle!
We have a bookmark, stitchmarker, candle, chocolate treats, a pumpkin jumper, and a charm. THANKS ANGELA!!! (she sent a card a couple days later too!)
ok! a girl can take a hint. really, the haul from Shuttles wasn't THAT exciting. I was tired and didn't have a specific project in mind... so i bought sock yarn. Not just any sock yarn. KOIGU.
I also got 2 back issues of Interweave Knits. The book in the back is Nicky Epstein's Knitting on the Edge that I bought at the meetup the week before. When i got home after shuttles, I got online, bought my SP a book at Amazon... and thought, hmm...we shouldn't waste free shipping!! So I bought myself another Erika Knight book (simple comforts) and Last Minute Knitted Gifts, aka Oh Shit! Knits, dubbed by Cathi. And a boring book for my future career (on couples therapy). In front, we have the three skeins of Koigu, and the new Vogue Knitting...
If anyone needs a good laugh, I present you with:
a prime example of why Asians kick ass at karaoke.
the tale of the leather pants. If you don't laugh or smile, i'll take you out for coffee.
I leave you with a cute and gratuitous pic of my 'helpers.'
