is this thing on?

OK, so I've been a little under the radar... I'm in exam mode (i.e. finished with course work and now have a semester to study for and write 3 exams that prove I've actually learned something over the course of the last... nine years of my life! EEP!) and have been spending most of my time in the library.

BUT, I am still knitting too! The order of the day is SIMPLE knits... stuff I can bring with me to the library, and is simple enough to work on while reading. Currently that includes anything garter or stockinette (preferably in the round!). So I'm working on a sock that I'm calling "The Great Gonzo's Death Defying Exam Sock". Someone please tell me I'm not the only one to remember the Great Gonzo, his fleet of adoring chickens and death defying stunts? Maybe I'm spending a little too much time alone in the library...

So, if you really want to see them, here is the worst picture ever taken of knitting. Not just by me, either.

Yes, that's right, taken in the library, by the mac cam, with the worst possible lighting ever. If I ever see the light of day and have access to a decent camera again, I promise to take a better picture. In fact, it's so bad, I'm not even going to upload it to ravelry yet.

Yarn: Storm Moon Knits "Muppets from Space" (hence the reference to Gonzo... see, I'm not totally nuts!)
Needles: US 2
Pattern: None. But! check out the coolest thing ever: Heels by Number. I found this this morning while trying to remember how many stitches to knit before ssk'ing on the heel turn. It has 6 different types of heels (all of which I want to try out now!) with the math all figured out for any number of stitches (in multiples of four) from 40 - 80!!!

P.S. This post broadcast to you directly from the MSE library.
