As you might've noticed, I'm in a bit of a slump these days. I came out of Socktoberfest with not a single new sock to my name (seriously, not even a single one! The sock you see above is from two years ago!). I don't have anything to show off on the knitting front, really,… Continue reading slump.
What better way to both close out Project Spectrum (I almost typed "Project Runway", because that's what I'm watching on TV right now!), and welcome Socktoberfest, than with this: A sock! Namely, the sock I started while I was in Ohio, with WATER-themed yarn, for Project Spectrum. I've been knitting on it at my office,… Continue reading a sock!
Socktoberfest is over…
And these still represent the entirety of my handknit sock collection. Yep, I finished exactly zero socks this Socktoberfest. Not even the Single Sock (the Tabi Sock, that is) that was supposed to be done in time to put in the mail tomorrow. I'll finish it pretty soon after that, but tomorrow? Not so much.… Continue reading Socktoberfest is over…
into the light
I braved daylight for a bit, just so that I could bring pictures to y'all, my dear readers. No, I haven't become a vampire (though that would be quite seasonally appropriate, no?), but rather am nursing a migraine. At this point I think the "worst" is over (if you're a fellow migraine sufferer, I'm sure… Continue reading into the light
Sunday Sock Update
Still flailing madly, trying to keep up with all my work alongside illness, but I thought I'd make a little post to show off my whopping sock progress (ahem, that would be sarcasm, as will become obvious once y'all see what I've actually accomplished). What you see above is my progress on the Tabi sock,… Continue reading Sunday Sock Update
I wish I had 8 arms…
Oy. Y'all, I am so ready to just collapse into a heap of exhaustion and hurtiness. I'm so busy with classes and research that I barely have time for anything else, and I'm being told that the pain that's gotten a lot worse since I started getting really sick this past spring is probably a… Continue reading I wish I had 8 arms…
Yeah, I know, we're already 5 days into Socktoberfest. But this is the first chance I've had to pull myself out of the pile o' work, and show off my pile 'o happy, bright socks. Before I start rambling about my plans for this month, how about a little retrospective? Here all all 7 pairs… Continue reading socktoberfest!
The feel of fall is in the air right now, and I am so looking forward to the coming of the real deal. I love fall, with its cool, sweater-friendly temperatures, and the not-so-glaring sunshine, and the leaves changing, and everything else. It is without a doubt my favorite time of year, and even if… Continue reading looking forward
I did it!
That's right, I finished my Candy Corn socks just in time for the end of Socktoberfest, and course, Halloween! After working on school-related things all evening, I spent a little over two hours just knitting, knitting, knitting (my left index finger, which does a lot of the work given the way I knit, was actually… Continue reading I did it!
(Just a quick post, as I've got to take off for my 9am class in a little bit!) I worked on my second Candy Corn sock quite a bit yesterday, alternating that with working on my NSF fellowship application essays (which are turning out pretty well, if I must say). By the end of the… Continue reading so close!
coming up for air
Well, I've survived my first set of midterms here at Rochester, and am finally getting a chance to catch up on everything else. The last couple weeks have been absolutely crazy, and yesterday evening was the first I've gotten to knit in quite awhile now. But before I get to that, I want to make… Continue reading coming up for air
