But, I will tell you what I am grateful for.
Here is a list of my Gratitude:
Today I am grateful for: my family, my friends, knitting, yoga, Obama, democracy that works, tribal bellydance, education, reading for pleasure, music that grips me, freedom, love, honesty, beauty in art, the warmth of the sun, bright stars at night, peaceful moments and good memories.
Thank you. I am grateful.
I've been knitting a bit. Last year at this time, I wasn't really knitting so much because I was engrossed in school. This year is a little different. Oh, I'm still in school, but I'm knitting a lot just to prove that I can to spite my work schedule and homework load. Because I'm a friggin' rebel like that. So there.
This is the Shalom Cardigan. Sorry for the lazy Ravelry link. It took about sixteen hours to knit and I used Lopi yarn. It's a keeper. I even wore it to work and got some compliments.
I also knit this:
It is the Wavy Feathers Wimple. The picture is so awful, but my house is quite dark and it was nighttime. Sorry. Hopefully I'll be able to get a real picture in the daylight and post it properly. I must tell you that the pattern was addictive. I used Frog Tree Alpaca sport weight.
This next pic is for my friend Shannon (the sadly-blogless Shannon, who thinks she's not cool enough to have a blog. Whatever). Anyway, she's not cool enough to have a blog, but she is cool enough to be in Jamaica right now. Historically, On certain Friday's, after work, Shannon and I get together and drinknit. We used to just knit, then we started to have a drink and that didn't mix well with the knitting, so now we just drink, but call it drinknitting, as a cover, you know? Wink, wink.
Here's to you, Shannon:
(this is my sad-knitting-homework-surlyfuriousbeer-endtable). It is dusty. If you are in MN, you can probably get this beer and I highly recommend it.
Yes, I am knitting (and blogging) whilst slightly under the influence.
This is Francis Revisited. The yarn is Cascade 220 heather, in some sort of brown with red and black speckles. I call it goth-chocolate. Only because I'm currently reading the Stephenie Meyer's teen vampire saga that is listed in my sidebar. I never thought I would, but I am. And I love it, so far.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
