I just thought I'd post quickly that I'll be AWOL from blogging for the next couple of days. When you're a grad student, it works like this: procrastinate, procrastinate, procrastinate, deadline approaching, work, work, work, deadline, collapse from exhaustion. Repeat until you graduate (if you ever do). I have a big deadline coming up this Thursday for the main conference for my field and I'm editing, compiling, writing, and occasionally giving up and taking a break to knit. Pictures, knitting talk, etc, to resume on Friday.
I am (of course) taking a break tonight to go to knitting group and also on Wednesday for a bit in the middle of the day to learn Fair Isle knitting from David.
Side note to Betty - I would totally get a 3rd skein of the Malabrigo lace weight, gives you more options.
