So much for procrastination knitting gossip!
I don't know what it is about this year, but I have been working my tail off for classes since last Wednesday! I am mostly in first year courses again this term (pesky prerequisites), so it shouldn't be the level of work. I have no idea, but it is wearing me out already! This is just too weird for me...
Up until Wednesday I was dilligently bringing my knitting to campus with me and sneaking a few rows in (it even caused me to meet some new people this year for once), but on Wednesday, there was a bit of an accident. Don't worry, the yarn is ok, I happened to be the casualty this time. I was greasing up my bike chain before heading off to class in the morning and I guess I got distracted and let my hand slip a little too close to my front sprocket... Yeah, ow. My left index finger got caught between the front deraileur and the teeth on the biggest ring, so I now have two nice puncture marks on opposite sides of my finger (one is right in the middle of the pad, and the other is riiiiight below my nail). I have learnt that I cannot knit with any degree of comfort or speed with that finger bandaged, and it is also too tender still to knit with regardless. It's not like I was tearing through my scarf any way, but it was certainly coming along.
I promise to update with *something* interesting soon, but I have to go pull my Math Bars out of the oven now. (back in grade 12, we had these late night [8-10] math review sessions for our provincial exams, and I, for the life of me, couldn't hardly make it through the session without passing out. Then I came across some homemade granola bar recipes, and that saved me. Well, it kept me awake, I still did poorly. So now I have decided that the key to surviving math this year is going to be math snacks, and this week it's the good old Math Bars! I plan to experiment with various home-baked healthy goodies to keep my attention levels up)
