Recycled Sweater and Start of Afghan

Here are some pics of my new Eco-fil Sweater and of the beginnings of my afghan for Jenny our house cleaner.
It is Easter weekend! Had church twice today and both times the choir messed up the anthem.... yay us! Matt is home for the weekend but brought me beautiful flowers! He is so sweet. Love him sooo much. Mom is going to his Grandparent's house in Grand Falls for Easter supper. Wish I was there with both of them.
David and I are going to Nan's for supper which I am sure is going to be fantastic! Thanks to all for supplying me with Easter/studying chocolate.
Whew.... what a lazy person I am... I am gone back for a nap I do believe... aka probably should be studying but Real Analysis is too boring for words let alone studying before napping...

Hmmm before Real Analysis

It is a half an hour before class and I am clearly procrastinating. It is the first day of wearing my newly finished Eco-fil Sweater! It is much comfier than I had expected recycled wool to be... especially since I had bought it for sale at only $2/ball, which is pretty sweet!

Blackall House Formal was last weekend and I managed to finish sewing my Vogue Patter DKNY Dress the night before!!! YAY!!! Much to my relief as I clearly had to study Vector Calc all Saturday!

Here are a few pictures!

One is of Me and Matt, Happy St. Patrick's Day! The big group is everyone from Grand Falls-Windsor that was there. Me dancing? Oh silly Matt avec my camera!

The Vector Calculus test was incredably horrible, while both the Sexual Behaviour and Combinatorics tests were just dandy! :D It is nice to understand what is on a test and not be totally lost!

Have started knitting an afghan for Jenny, our house cleaner. She is just sooooo sweet. She always brightens your day and she is always up for a good chat.

Here at Residence

Big drama going on here at Paton College at MUN. Changes are being made! I will quite possibly be homeless! Check it out!
Christmas break was wonderful; so good to be home after all semester! Got to knit lots and lots! And unfortunately eat lots and lots too! Hahaha
Everyone had knitting on their minds when gift shopping because I got a new knitting basket, needles, tip covers, scissors, wool, and a knitting page a day calender.
During finals Matt and I ventured to Michael's for a study break... such a sweet guy! And I bought a bunch of Patons Merino Wool. I have seen sooo many projects that are felted and decided now was the time to try! All through exams I knit and knit and knit and over Christmas finished a felted messenger bag that has the Fibbonacci sequence on the front flap. (Yay math nerds of the world unite!) It worked out really nicely and is the perfect size for a clip board and my trusty TI-83+.
Will post a picture when I take one!

Yay! A new blog to post my knitting/other news!

In the last little while I haven't had too much time to knit... but on the way to the Alice Cooper concert in St. John's for his Dirty Diamonds tour I knit all the way!
Armed with my i-pod and wool and needles I knit the long bus ride! My boyfriend never seeing me knit before was amazed and watched me and asked questions and tried to figure out all the symbols and terminology... much to the amusement of the little girl who was sitting across the asile from us.

During the 2 day trip I started and almost finished a little dress for my baby cousin.
This was a really easy pattern from Debbie Bliss' book Cotton Knits For All Seasons.
The only problem is that I had to keep stoping to answer Matt's questions during the trip :P
The varigated wool in some places ended up to make a bigger patch of of purple in the back but that is all you can do!

Happy Knitting,
