Laura also loves:
– finishing 3 papers (and on time)
– finishing one last embryology test
– being done undergraduate classes FOREVER
Still three exams to go. But at least they a) don’t start for more than a week and b) are spread out so I can study for each.
And Lara? LOVE.
Pattern: Lara from Debbie Bliss’ “Alpaca Silk”
Yarn: DB Alpaca Silk (aran) in Teal, 14 skeins (the exact number called for with less than half a skein left over)
Needles: Denise US 7
Love, love, love this sweater. It’s so cushy and soft, and warm, and was a fast and easy knit. Very satisfying. I’ll definitely knit this one again, maybe in something like handspun in stripes or something? Or a Noro?
I wore it with a two-pronged hair thingy with a butterfly on it the other night, but now I seem to have lost the hair thingy – very unfortunate. On the plus side, I did find that other wooden hair stick that I love so much for closing sweaters. I wore Lara today just open, and it’s really comfy that way – some of my other ones I prefer to wear closed.
Laid out (colour’s more accurate in the first photo):
I do believe I’m back on the blogging thing! It was a hard week (with lots of studying yet to come) but everything’s getting just that much closer to actually being DONE.
