I was just thinking I needed to post a blog and that I didn't have much to say besides that I was studying all week and still haven't gotten a chance to knit. However, a package from my Secret Pal was waiting for me at home after a particularly long and tedious day at school!

Secret Pal Package

The package contained a houndstooth/floral stationary/note set, a needle holder, some nice size 2 DPNs, an issue of knitscene, and some very lovely yarn: a skein of Noro Kureyon Sock and 2 skeins of Laines du Nord Baby Star. Thank you pal! It was definitely a nice surprise. Here's a closeup of the pretty yarn..

It's a Sunday post! I just watched Muse perform on the VMAs. They were awesome. I however have not watched that much MTV in years (waiting for them to come on) and I feel old and crotchety. I also wish they'd leave the Twilight references out of it because it shouldn't be considered their only claim to fame. How bout their talent? Don't shoot me. :)

I had a good weekend but after a little bit of studying my planner I realized I have several bad school weeks ahead of me. I don't have a test until next Monday but it's going to snowball after that so I need to keep up with it. So, no knitting this past week and I am still trying to arrange a time for me to teach a friend how to start on her scarf. Hopefully we can get to it this week and maybe I will continue my quest to finish my gift glittens. I am also rounding up a few odds and ends for the final package to my Secret Pal spoilee.

It's officially been a week since I stopped eating meat and I'm not looking back. Not only have I lost weight but it was also way cheaper when I went out for sushi. It's a new task for me and I'm not always good at keeping those kinds of things up when stuff gets stressful but I really want to.

Until next week.

Agh, I missed my Sunday post again! In defense, after last week I was trying to catch up on sleep all weekend. I am however still studying; I have an endocrine exam again tomorrow. After that I have a couple weeks with no exams so I am just doggy-paddling my way to the temporary finish line..

I worked on my friend's Urban Necessity glove over the weekend. I'm in a predicament that I think I might fix by changing yarn. I happen to be running out of this current skein after doing a couple trial gloves and I'm still having problems adjusting it to her hand size. Laziness is also becoming a factor.

I went to my parents for Labor Day weekend and hung out with their puppies. I should be able to post some pics in the next few days to make up for the lack of knitting.
