Stupid Progress

I decided that I'd write a quick post and check in with you all, and then I saw that Blogger finally did it.  They changed their layout and everything looks different.  I don't know where anything is and I'm having a hard time writing because of the distraction that is this new layout.  I mean, you all know how I feel about change.  I hate it.  I resist.  I whine and complain.  Then I finally get over it and decide that I love the change and I don't know how I ever lived without it (not saying it's gonna happen with this layout...)

School.  It's killing me.  Two projects due this week.  Lots and lots of reading.  Working extra hours.  Sleeping but not getting any rest.  Reading but not retaining the information.  Knitting a Christmas stocking in April.  Wishing I could just sit on the couch with Alex to my left, watching Spongebob and Phineas & Ferb (maybe even some Yo Gabba Gabba).  Eating my stash of perfectly aged Peeps (about 2 weeks of exposure to air) and surfing Ravelry.

Three months and two weeks remaining...

Just popping my head up from under my homework

I'm dog tired (as usual).  The trunk show went well and I had quite a bit of interest in my Still Unnamed Vest, lol.  I actually *did* take photos, but none of my own booth because that would have made sense.  I sold a few patterns, took emails, gave out cards, and bought a fantastic set of buttons and a whale-shaped needle gauge from Katrina.  I also got a bag of mini-skeins and a Shawl Maki from Play at Life Fiber Arts.  I'm collecting quite the stash from Chrystee, including spinning fiber.  I knit all my mini's into hexipuffs within three days!  And I must say...I'm having a hard time choosing a favorite.  I didn't think much of the Boho Beach Bum in the skein, but I'm starting to love it.  I keep thinking about making a new design and using the lovely buttons that I got from Katrina :)

School is gonna suck for two more weeks and I'm just dragging my butt around here trying to make it.  I've got two new patterns to release and a third to get out to the editor.  And I've got a lot of repairs and custom work to finish, and Dante's sweater.  And I'll get those photos up as soon as I get a minute to breath, and maybe after I get a nap.
