The current state of affairs:

And why yes, I am in fact taking lecture notes and working on a new knitting project at the same time.  And also doing laundry... But seriously that is only so much of an AIA contract document lecture I can stand before it all starts to blur together.  And it isn't like garter stitch actually requires mental concentration at this point.

2.5 hours down, 1.5 hours to go (and I'm totally ignoring how much I've got to do tomorrow, I figure that is for the best).  The pizza person needs to get here soon.

P.S. The pattern is Hitchhiker done in my lovely new handspun,  Will be part of Kristen's Christmas present this year.  I love it when a yarn tells you who its for and what it wants to be :P

*blink blink* Why do I suddenly want to knit a sweater?  I'm going to blame it on the slowly growing pile of yarn for my Dad's sweater, which sadly I'm not anywhere near done spinning for and don't feel like I can really justify casting on yet.  So I will have to make do with working on making socks, which I LOVE, on yarn that I love, and not quite feeling it -_-  Bah

But in other news, I have completed some pretty spinning!

Something less than 4 oz (still damp, can't weigh yet) of Two if By Hand Exhausted on Polwarth.  439 yards of fingering to light fingering.  I was trying for a more solid fingering but I'm really very pleased with what I got.  And again, I can't make a sweater out of it...

MUST remember to finish weaving in all the ends and blocking my fair projects.  Will be dropping them off to be judged this weekend (I don't feel very confident about this year) so hopefully I will get a "Completed Fair Projects" photoshoot in here.

A drive-by post here (maybe tomorrow I will actually post something with pictures):

I love the Olympics! :)
