The yarn is coming! The yarn is coming!

Oh what a day I have had... picking out yarn for my Christmas projects! And, of course, could not resist something extra because it was pretty and something else because it was on sale! I have already forgotten the colorways and only remember that some was an alpaca/silk blend for my sister.

Once all the pretties arrive - I will post pics so you can drool along with me!

I also purchased some lovelies from my friend at Liberty's Yarn. If you have not checked out her fabulous online shop yet - you definitely should. Just click on the name above and you will be taken there!

She has some of the loveliest colorways. You can also find her on Ravelry, if you are there too!

While browsing through colors and sales I also found this set of needles below on knitpicks.com. I like the idea that they are convertible and so multi-functional. I am in a very small space now. I am definitely contemplating this lovely little set..


So, now the Christmas presents just need to be made and I need…

It's been awhile...

Hey, isn't that the beginning of a song??? I think Uncle Cracker maybe??

Anyhow, it really has been a bit since I took the time to check in. School is just starting and already I feel as though I am drowning in homework and stupidity. I have several fellow students in my classes who feel that they must be THAT one. You know who I'm talking about, hopefully you are not one of THOSE.

Those people who must ALWAYS be right.

THOSE people who feel THEIR opinion must be respected, but refuse to give respect in return.

THOSE people for whom the entire class should resolve around. You know, the type who can ASK all the time-sucking questions that are completely unrelated to the lesson, but do the loud sighs and gripe should someone else have an ON TOPIC comment or question.

THOSE people who think every study session is all about THEM and that only THEIR time is valuable.

It's going to be a long semester.
