status not-so-quo

It's been a rough start to the semester around here... nothing that I really want to get into because really, it's been discussed to death. I'm trying to get back on track this weekend and hoping that next week will be better. Let's be honest though: Monday is "fall break" and first thing Thursday AM I'll be on a plane, flying back to the Great White North to attend Dr. OSCBF's graduation. So I'll have a 2 day school week, into which I'm probably going to pack more stuff than I've done in the last 2 weeks.

On the knitting front, things have been somewhat slow. Lots of starts but not so many full stops. Except the WECY. It's seamed, but I really need to give it a good firm blocking before I can show it off. My roommate and I spent some time re-organizing the stashes that were attempting to take over the apartment last night, and I cast on the cinnabar scarf last night. And about a week ago I cast on the Chinese Lace Pullover in Blue Heron Rayon Metallic colourway "Iris" (see the last one on the page). I like it, but part of me keeps thinking "Rainbow Brite threw up on my sweater". I'm going to try and give it a chance though.

Pictures later... I will try and get the WECY blocked today or tomorrow (no promises, I'm trying to jump-start my brain this weekend and that might not mix well with steaming... I don't want to burn or melt the sweater... just make it lie flat when I wear it!).

Cheer up! Hope things get better soon and that you got some thinking accomplished.

Hope your fall break is a head clearing experience. I like both new projects. The scarf could be a quickier knit but you knit very quickly!

I love the new look here, BTW. I hope things start to look up this semester and I'm so sorry that we didn't get to talk today. Your haircut probably looks fine; you could never be a CF anyway.

Have a safe trip home!
