School is eating my life.

Yeah, the title just about says it all.

I really don't have anything to say, I just felt like complaining and thought, "hey, that's what blogs are for!" so I posted.

Okay, back to work. *bangs head on desk repeatedly*

Om nom nom

Yay I'm actually posting again!

And I actually have PICTURES!! Go me!

Pictures of what, you may ask?

Gratuitous yarn porn!!! (um, before you start looking at me funny, that's just a knitting blog/forum term for unnecessary pictures of yarn). And, sorry for the awful picture quality, my camera sucks booty (to borrow a term from my favorite 6' 5" musical star).

These are all pictures of some yarn given to me by my mom's friend. She wants me to knit some stuff for her. The green fuzzy yarn and the red and green are for scarves for her.

These purple/blue-ish and the burgundy are for a felted messenger bag for her daughter Livian.

The rest are undecided, except for this blue and green fuzzy yarn that's ALL MINE! MUAHAHAHA!

Ahem. But it's so beeeyooootiful! And lovely and soft and it will make a purdy scarf!

And this is my latest project:

It just looks like a rectangle now, but it's actually the back to a cabled hoodie I'm making. It's pretty sweet!

Alright, that's it for now. Adios amigos!

Knitting = Crack.

I have come to the conclusion that knitting is completely addictive.

I don't mean like, "hmm this is fun, i'll make something else now!" casual kind of addiction. I mean like shaky hands "I NEED TO KNIT!!!" desperation kind of addiction.

Not only that, but I have to take on more drastic projects to get my knitting fix now. Those quick size 35 needle scarves are just not doing it for me anymore. No, I have to be knitting sweaters and blankets and hard stuff! Not to mention the fact that yarn itself is ridiculously addictive because its so soft and pretty (and expensive...) and has so much potential!

Since school began, I've had hardly any free time at all, let alone time to knit (or blog...sorry about that). So I'd gone several days without picking up the needles at all. I came really close multiple times to just abandoning homework to go knit. But thankfully, that little inner voice that is constantly telling me "you must get good grades so you can go to college and go to grad school so you can get a good job and do a lot of research so you can cure cancer!" won out over the knitting jones. Not that that was an easy choice, mind you.

So, I've been finding sneaky ways to get a few minutes of knitting in. I even took my latest project to school so I could knit on the bus ....and during class....:)

Speaking of my latest project, I am currently knitting a cabled hoodie made from Caron Simply Soft (doncha love the cheap stuff?). The pattern is from one of those leaflets you get in Michaels next to the yarn. I picked one up and just HAD to have the sweater (addictive, I'm telling you!!!).

Alright, that's all for now. Hasta luego!
