Sooo Tired!

It has been a long couple of weeks. I dream of going to Walmart now. I am a little frustrated, because I can't seem to get enough sleep. I am not sure if it is because I am not getting enough sleep or because I am still getting used to the heat in Florida and am extremely dehydrated all the time. I am drinking water like it is going out of style.

Even with the craziness of moving (I am still making lists of stuff I need) and starting graduate school (I am already expected to know my Master's thesis topic?!), I have been working on my itty bitty purse. This purse is probably the size of a hat, but it seems to be taking twice as long! I keep measuring it and it does not seem to grow in length. I just need 1 1/2 inches and I will be done. It is all St st, so I am just using the knit stitch since it is in the round, but it does not grow! The frustrating part is that after I finish the purse, I need to knit two 30inch i-cord drawstring straps. As much as this project is slow-going. I don't need to bring the pattern with me, so it is working out great as the carry-along project, when I am waiting for the ten million meetings that I suddenly need to attend. (Did I already mention that I need to have a Master's thesis topic?!)

Oh! In crafty news, two of the ladies with whom I will work crochet! I know, I know, it isn't knitting, but I am excited that I am working with crafty ladies! It's nice to know that I will be in a supportive and fiber-loving environment. :)
