Phew! This has been a ridiculously long week. I returned to Gainesville at 3AM on Monday and proceeded to have a clinic assessment on Monday, my tbi (traumatic brain injury) final exam on Tuesday, and my multivariate statistics final exam on Wednesday. Oh yeah, and I had a stack of therapy patients throughout the week too. Anyway, now that the weekend is here I can focus on what is important, namely knitting. :) A few months ago, I joined the Harry Potter Knitting/Crochet House Cup on Ravelry. Today was the first day of the (summer) semester. I joined the Muggle Studies class and am now working on Bella's Fingerless Mittens. The assignment is to knit/crochet a project based on a muggle television or movie. For the five of you who don't know, Bella is a character in the Twilight book (and now movie) series. As someone who spends an obscene amount of time in heavily air conditioned buildings, these fingerless mittens will be a godsend this summer. The hotter it is outside, the colder it is inside.
Also, I promised some pictures from my latest Wool Girl Sock Club kit. Here is a picture of all the goodies! Ain't it awesome! The yarn is Curious Creek Fibers and there is a whopping 493 yards in that skein. I am excited to knit the kit's sock pattern, but I also want to buy some more and make other projects, since the color is gorgeous and has amazing yardage.
