she's back!

whoops. that was certainly a long absence from the blog. in my defense, i've been a wee bit consumed with grad school applications and have had no time to either knit or blog. i mean, i probably did have some time ... but the problem with something like grad school applications is that they are constantly hanging over your head. so whenever you're doing something that's not grad school applications, you feel guilty. for someone like myself, with a slightly overdeveloped guilt complex, that can spell disaster.

but here i am! one application down, three to go. i gave myself a week off from submitting the first one to starting the other three. and now, one week almost to the hour later, i am sitting down at my computer ... only to begin procrastinating immediately. whoops again.

anyway, enough about grad school. in knitting news ... well, like i said, i've been busy and feeling guilty. but i did pick up the blanket yesterday! does everyone remember the blanket? this would be the one that i started to may to give to my friend as a wedding present. whoops for the third time (do we sense a trend?). the blanket was taking FOREVER, and to be perfectly honest, was becoming a bit boring. one yarnover a row is just not enough to make all knit, all the time interesting. yesterday afternoon, however, after a tough four hours at work, i found myself in need of some mindless knitting. i spent a couple hours on it and am almost through the fourth skein. which means, my friends, that i am almost at the point where each row starts getting shorter. this is very, very exciting. for me, anyway.

in other news, the second annual wonder girl knits holiday spectacular was a smashing success. we sold a number of things, mostly thanks to our friend sandra who was having a GMAT-induced shopping breakdown. we did take pictures but they're all on maggie's camera. final whoops of the day.

alright, i'm off to be productive. or to curl up on my couch. details.
