A Day Late!
Sunday, September 9, 2007
I know, I know I broke a promise. I am sorry all!

Other than working and school, I haven't been up to much lately. No new knitting, although I plan on starting the bag for my HSKS 3 swap soon. The problem is finding the perfect pattern. I believe I have already found the sock pattern that would go well with the yarn I got for her. Pounce, Moontear and I went to my favorite yarn store of all time today for Moontear's Birthday. So I picked up a couple of odds and ends I wanted to throw in the package for my pal!

I also made a purchase for myself. Take a look at this beautiful yarn! It's Hacho by Mirasol. 100% Hand Dyed Merino Wool.

These are eventually going to be made into this. Which works since Pounce is planning on making me a black and turqouise scarf and hat set. It should match wonderfully.

On the work front, I don't know if I mentioned that I had my yearly review and it went very well. I haven't heard anything about a raise yet but I am keeping my fingers crossed.

School, is going to be a pain this semester but I can handle it. Intermediate Algebra class will be the biggest challenge I have. I am not particularly fond of math and often feel like the dunce of the class. It was helpful that he went over the basics again. He reminded me of the things I had forgotten about. Biology - Environmental Sciences only sucks because it's on a Saturday. I think that working in a company of Environmental Engineers will be extremely helpful if I get stuck on anything.

A lot of people were curious about the sock yarn I was asking about. As much as I would KILL for that yarn. I didn't purchase it. I was just asking so that I would know what I was looking for when buying sock yarn for my pal. I love that particular colorway, I think it's beautiful. Thank you for all your help everyone, I appreciate it!

Oh, I can't lie. I think alot of my knitting time when to watching Deadwood. We got the second season on Friday. Any spare time I have had went to watching that. -=giggle=- What an awesome show!

Alright.. -=giggle=- I can't think of anymore to type at 3:30 in the morning so I am going to leave you for tonight. I'll probably blog more tomorrow when I am not as tired as I am right now.

Night night all!

    Hacho has great colorway. I looked at the fingerless gloves and they are awesome. I just may add them to my knit list. I need something quick. Wishing you the best in school.

    Such pretty yarn! I'm sure that I am going to feel terribly spoiled by the package you are sending me... I'll have to work extra hard to make sure my own swap partner is just as spoiled!

    Cool yarn!!!! It makes me tired just reading about your schedule!!! I have 3/4 of a degree in mathmatics. I loved Algebra and some of the Calculas classes. But I do good to add 2 + 2 nowadays. :) If you don't use it, you loose it. :)

    ...I'd like my classes, if it weren't for the fact that my teacher talks too much :P.
