What I've been up to

  1. Appellate brief

  2. Oral argument preparation

  3. This:

That would be Eunny Jang's Autumn Rose cardigan in a rather bastardized colorblind color scheme...

Done, and in their natural habitat.

One down...

I got some yarn from Luxe in a swap a while back, and I wasn't really sure what to do with it until I saw Spirogyra in the new knitty.

One down:

...and one to go. It shouldn't be long. This thing went surprisingly fast.

FO: Fetching!

I decided that since I grossly overestimated the amount of yarn I needed for my new hat, some new glovies were in order.

Yarn: Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed (Less than 1 ball)
Needles: Size 5 DPNs
Pattern: The ubiquitous Fetching
Mods: None, but I probably should have killed the picot bind off.

At least they can be used to beat up kittens.

So, I discovered a great pattern on Ravelry and decided I needed socks. These suckers are the "monarch" socks, because I thought it was clever with a mix of the colors and the butterfly stitch motif.

Pattern: Flutter-By Socks
Yarn: Yarn Hollow superwash sock, purchased at a yarn festival in Ann Arbor
Needles: Size 1 1/2 US or 2.5MM
Mods: I made the toe much less pointy, stopping with 26 stitches to go. I used the eye of partridge heel, but that's not really a mod since it's given in the pattern...

It's strange how knitting melds in with whatever is going on in life. Last week should have been awesome, as it was spring break and I was off classes. However, on Wednesday my father passed away. (I know I sound crass, but at least he had the sense to go when I was off classes and didn't have to miss any. Trust me, if you knew him, you'd know he wouldn't mind comments like this.) The rest of break has just sort of been a blur of visiting mom, DVDs, knitting, and trying to forget. I didn't get any fucking schoolwork done. At least I have some freaking socks to show for it.
