"I hate waiting."

As you might guess, I'm a bit impatient. I had hoped that picking up a pair of knitting needles would help me learn about the virtue of patience... but it seems I just want my projects to go along as quickly as possible.

Stained glass

I had a fair productive day today! (please ignore the fact that I had to stay up until... 2:13am to have one) Not only have I managed to blog (twice!), i've also done quite a bit of fair work on my finals (on two of them, anyway), managed the lot of my email (there's only 7 unread! not 40 quatrillion), made many return phone calls, AND went to a SnB meetup! Last but not least, I finished chart A of the endpaper mitts.



Isn't she purty? I chose color #4, and I love it so far! the color combos remind me of stained glass. If I had 3 skeins of color #3, I would be tempted to make another pair of these with that color combo.

The SnB meetup was a great getaway from the computer time. I met lovely knitters, had some laughs, and made progress on the mitts and my irish hiking scarf.

I hope I can rip myself away from these mitts for the next few days, b/c I really do need to buckle down and finish up these take home finals. I hate take homes. It means I have to pay attention to detail, and cite references. Which means my bullsh*tting abilities won't be enough.

They are looking incredible! I can't wait to see how they continue progressing. I really really want to start mine but I've dilly dallied way too long and am in danger of not finishing the afghan for DS so that is all I'll be working on until Christmas or it's finished. Bah.

Pretty! And a belated birthday. Hope all is better for you. The end of the semester rush always flattened me for a while, but knowing the end was in sight helped soften the blow. Good luck with the exams!

They are so pretty!!! I completely understand about take home finals. They are so much more difficult and require so much more work. It's like some profs think they are being nice but in reality they are just plain cruel!
