And The Winner Is...

Ok, so it's been over a week since my birthday, I think it's time to reveal who is the lucky recipient of the beautiful skein of malabrigo sock in the previous post.

I'd also show you pictures of my knitting, but I don't have any pictures of my knitting and I don't have time to take pictures of my knitting.  I honestly don't know how I'm even functioning at this point.  I just turned in my last final, which should mean that I'm done!!!!  ...but I'm not.  There's a project that I just ran out of time to do that my teacher was very explicit in stating that she would not accept late assignments, and then she emailed me later on wondering when she should expect to receive it?  My short answer was "Never", but she didn't seem to like that one very much.

Anyway, I'm only allowed to be on campus for 18 more hours and there's a lot to do before I can leave, so we'll see if this project actually makes it to the finish line.

I don't even want to talk about grad school at this point.

Oh!  The contest!!  I forgot.  Sorry!

The winner is...

Jacey!!!!!  Woohoo for you!  I'll send you your yarn as soon as: a) I contact you about an address and b) I have time.  The waiting will simply cause suspense and make its arrival all the more exciting, I promise.

Did I mention I finished my Expedition?  I even blocked it and everything.  He needs buttons and ends to be woven in, but I'm not going to do that until I get home.  I'm also ready to knit the heel on my second sock.  It's all sorts of exciting.

Some of you have been asking to hear me play clarinet - well now you can!  At the end of my latest podcast episode you can hear me serenading all you listeners with a movement from a Brahms sonata.  It's a good time to be had, for sure.

Back to work.


  1. Yay, podcast listening for later!

    Just be sure to take care of yourself - eat proper meals, sleep, etc. I don't want to have to go all mother hen on you, and I expect I wouldn't be the only one. ;-)

  2. Mel's comment has me imagining a smackdown of epic proportions between the various commenters to see who gets to mother-hen you most. Heh.

  3. I hope you get everything done before you have to leave campus. I also hope you have a great Thanksgiving, and a restful break.

  4. You can do it! Just remember that you have 6 weeks to sleep as much as you want after you get through the next 18 hours.

    Oh, and Johanna is SOEXCITED that you're going to be home. I think she's planning some big things. Be prepared! See you at Skypesgiving! ;-)

  5. I hope everything gets done in these last few hours, sleep is overrated! "sleep when you're dead," as my friend used to say. I am so, so, so excited to hear that the Expedition is done, I can't wait to see pictures! Have a great Thanksgiving!

  6. Huzzah! Yay for the just shy of being done! Don't be a slacker, you can do it! This coming from me, who never took more than a couple of night classes, I should talk.

    Don't forget to get some rest and sneak in a little time for yourself, ok?

  7. Dude, I don't think I've ever won anything. Thanks!

    I still haven't checked out the podcast, but I am hoping to have some time for that on this long holiday weekend.

    Have a wonderful thanksgiving!

  8. Knitting for just a couple of year? My goodness are you good. I've tried knitting for many more years then that and barely can get a pair of slippers done. You are fantastic. Good luck on your studies and keep up the great work.
    Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless!
