Well, I have decided to broach the lace thing. A few months ago I won some lace weight yarn from Cara. I decided to make the Flower Basket Shawl from IK. I have just started, but I think it will be fun. Following the graph will be a challenge, but I am excited to do it. I have cast on, and knit about 12 rows.

Otherwise, I have been really busy with work. I am trying to write the manuscript for one of my research projects. I am helping to write a chapter for a book. I have a big lecture to give in a few weeks. And my ultrasound project is taking a lot of my time. Plus, I should be studying for my boards which I will take in January. And I need to be looking for a job. All of this is so overwhelming that I don't know where to start.

And the knitting is taking a back seat. But I need to finish my sock pair. And I want to get this shawl done. Not to mention things for Christmas presents. I wish there was more time.

At least I am slowly getting out of the bad mood that has been interfering with my ability to get anything done. So for now, I can at least get something done. I'll post some pics soon.

Wow it has been a long time

I need to update a lot of things. But I quickly wanted to update my SP6 questionnaire. I signed up late and wasn't sure that I would even get to be a part of it. But I am excited to be a part of this once again. I have to say I have lucked out with my SP's from both 4 and 5, and I think that I will like my SO from this time too. So here is my questionnaire.

I'll post some other fun stuff soon.

SP5 is done!

I haven't felt much like doing anything these days. My own mood, compounded with all the devastation of the hurricane has left me kind of down. haven't been knitting much. But I wanted to give an SP5 update. I first wanted to thank my wonderful SP from North of the Border. Heather was a wonderful SP and she sent me some great stuff. I guess I need to post a picture of the sweatshirt she sent me. But I love all the things she sent. The person that I sent to was Janet. Her last gift box is in the mail, and I hope that she likes it. I had fun picking out all the stuff.

I know there are lots of you all doing what you can for the victims of Katrina. I wish I could go down and volunteer, but I don't think I can. I am giving some money. That is the best I can do. Hope you all hang in there.
