For me personally though, this has been hanging over my head for a month now. I feel like I'm going to need ptsd therapy by the time I'm through. I'm just stressed 24/7 about making it through this course - I've been crying and losing sleep about it for almost three weeks now. I still don't know how I'm going to do it. Today I'm working my way slowly through problems that will be on tomorrow's test and hoping that I manage to remember half of the material. For a student who has only received one B grade among the rest of her A's, the prospect of failing an exam is excruciating. It's worth a full quarter of my over-all grade for the class.
So where I do I retreat for temporary sanity? Yarn. I got my order from Gaias Colours today! I've taken pictures to share with all of you. :)
Pales Fluffy DK in Redwood
Pales Fluffy DK in Cup of Clay
These are both 100% Superwash and I think are going to be slated as small shawls.
Heithrun Sock in an oopsie colourway that I am ADORING.
80% Superwash/ 10% CASHMERE/ 10% Nylon. Yum.
and lastly, the re-order of the Umaj Bamboo/Merino Sock Yarn to finish a pair of socks that have been languishing:
but, as you can tell, my colourway isn't quite right, so the socks have been pulled off those dpn's that were holding my live stitches. I haven't decided if I want to knit new socks holding the two yarns double (making them super fluffy and soft) or if I want to knit one row from one cake, then the the next row from the other... I'm just not sure. I even think the the newer yarn is a little bit more loosely spun, so I'll have to decide what I'm going to do with this predicament. but I LOVE the yarn and the colourway both. Whatever I decide to do, it won't be a waste of this gorgeous yarn.
Alrighty, back to the math for me. Next break maybe I'll search pattern, or maybe do a little knitting. We'll see. :)
