We’re nearing the end of the semester, and we both feel this way. Luckily, we’ve had a little bit of this:
It is time to really dig into the papers I have to write in order to finish out the semester, and I’m having a hard time locating my motivation to get into these particular projects. I realized this weekend that this is okay, and that the progress I’ve made this semester has required a lot of energy and effort, and it is beginning to catch up to me. I’m looking forward to the change of scenery my parents’ house will provide later on this week. I’ll certainly be bringing a pile o’ books with me, but I haven’t been home for Thanksgiving in several years, and I’m anticipating a whole lot of laughter and some personal battery recharging. I’ll also be bringing some knitting…
But probably not these! They just need to be kitchenered. I deceived the boy, and asked him to try them on because it is a new pattern and I wanted to be sure that they’d fit my father — the boy and my dad have similarly sized feet. Sock #1 fit perfectly! I am seriously considering gifting these now, just because.
Eek: two full days’ worth of work between me and turkey preparation. Must get back to it!
prairie has taken up knitting. you can imagine the offensively bright color combinations that will come out of that. your socks make me want to wear shoes, or at least scoot around hardwood floors on a chilly morning.
