I wish I wasn’t so busy. The last five weeks of the semester are going to be crammed full of writing assignments; everything is due at the same time, and I’m freaking out. I wish school was over and I was graduating; I can’t believe in five weeks I will be a college graduate.
Lately all I’ve been knitting is socks because they are quick and easy to take with me everywhere. I need something that I can finish quickly so I don’t get depressed with not being able to finish anything. When I’m stressing about essays to write, I get so tickled when I finish a sock. I’m like a little kid. I show everyone my sock and squeal with delight. Socks are keeping me going right now; so far I’ve finished three and a half pairs. Pics to come soon (probably in five weeks).
I also wish it wasn’t as hot as it is outside. Parts of the country are still battling winter storms with snow and cold, and here I am in Arizona with eighty degree temps, wearing capris and short-sleeved shirts. I really wish I could wear these:
I received these hand-knit traditional fair-isle mittens from my secret pal in Norway on the first day of eighty degree weather here. I wanted to wear them so bad that day, but all I could do was just admire them. Don’t laugh, I’ll eventually get a chance to wear them!. Just not for a couple of months.
