Merry Christmas Knitters!

December 25, 2007

As I sit here in a sugar coma I wanted to wish all the knitters in my life a very merry Christmas! So many pictures, so little time. I’ll update the blog when I get home!

This is how I block it!

December 18, 2007

Block out with your fender amplifier out.

tomorrow after my exams I’ll finally get to go home for Christmas, a full week after most of my friends finished, how does that work out? Anyways, today I realized that I still needed to block a rather lumpy Christmas gift. I improvised with a towel, my lap-desk, and my fender amp. I figured it might be funny enough to warrant sharing with the world.


Exams have stolen my knitting mojo, my Intelligentsia sweater has made barely any progress since thanksgiving. I’ve ripped out each sleeve a total of three times, and I think its time for professional help. I’ll forgo the romantic notion of designing my own sweater pattern this time around.


And finally, the beautiful cashmere/wool scarf I was making for my Dad’s present hasn’t made any progress since I casted on a few weeks ago. Sign, I was so motivated!


Hopefully he wont mind getting an unfinished present for Christmas. I still have a few ideas up my sleeve.

And now its time to go back to studying for my back-to-back 400 level history exams tomorrow. Woot! Have a great Christmas everyone, I hope to see you all soon!

Coolest thing I’ve seen this week (next to Michelangelo)

December 9, 2007

I saw this on the Yanko Industrial Design Blog – how cool is that? For now I’ll just stare longingly at my rusty radiator at 410 Crackden and wish that it could warm my winter beverages. I bet it would be easier to deal with my impending doom/homelessness after college if I had a radiator friendly coffee heater.

No news on the knitting front. I’ve been keeping busy with finals and work. Time to make some sweet potato fries (yummm) and study study study!

As always, Sweatergirl


So much beauty in the world

December 6, 2007

“Sometimes there’s so much beauty in the world I feel like I can’t take it, like my heart’s going to cave in.” – American Beauty

That’s how I felt today at the DIA as I stood two inches away from one of Michelangelo’s studies for the Creation of Adam in the Sistene Chapel. Seeing entire walls of Degas, Warhol, Lichtenstein, Picasso, (and many many others) was nothing short of inspiring.

And then I went across the street to CCS – absolutely astounded. But more on that later.
