the daily lament

Everyday i keep saying (mentally or course) - Gotta blog, Gotta blog and then it never happens. I had great plans for the Christmas break when the students were not in school and there are hours streatching out in front of me- well that was before today- the kids are back- the parking lots, hallways and ladies rooms are full.

My classes begin next week- lucky break with the MLK holiday again- i like these Monday courses, you get more days off. I think the lucky course this time is Federal and State Government in Higher Ed. Another policy class- but I enjoyed policy last semester.

Knitting has been going- I have cleaned out so much of the stash in the past year, I am down to a bunch of sock yarn and various other skeins. I was totally out of a sweater quantity of yarn so, I did a knitpicks order of Merino Style for this sweater, the Diagional Ribbed Pullover I got the cornflower blue. And I'm making it slightly smaller then my size, not because the pattern says to do so, but I also have joined Weight watchers at work and I'm making it my goal to lose 30 lbs by the Budapest trip- I have 7 months, so I think it is a good and achievable goal.
Other knitting- I made Tim a double layer hat that came out really nice. Using Karabella Aurora 8, it is really soft and comfy- so I liked it so much I made one for myself, with the same aurora 8 for the inside and some pink Cascade 220 I bought to make Wavy a few years ago.

and I'm working on a pair of socks- this yarn was part of the gift bag I recieved in the Hogwarts Knit Sock Kit swap round 2- I was in Hufflepuff so thats why the blue and gold- one is striping well the other is more random, but the yarn is soft and yummy.
