Spiderman to the rescue! To rescue me from the knitting rut I've been in! I will admit that it's not great yarn--just Vanna's Choice acrylic but this pattern is soooo addictive. I've been having a blast knitting it and am having fun watching it grow and grow. I will need to buy a bigger circular needle soon; right now I am knitting it on a 29 inch US 8 circular needle but I put it on two needles to photograph it. I think this blanket will go to my amazing boyfriend once it is finished, but why he deserves hours and hours to work is another post.
I feel rather lame because I've just been doing a whole lot of nothing. I'm pretty much all moved into my new apartment and now I am just enjoying the time with my boyfriend. Last night we tried this weird purple haze beer. It wasn't bad actually, just a little different.
As far as crafting goes, I am so behind on Christmas gifts. I don't even want to think about it...
I have 8 more days of this semester left, provided I don't die from all the stress first. I know I haven't been posting here since Halloween, and really my only excuse is that I'm busting my butt in school. I'm planning to celebrate the end of the semester next weekend with a movie night with beer & pizza. Until then, don't expect much from me.
But in other news, I am writing this post from my brand new smart phone. How cool is that?!
