And that's all the news that's fit to print! I'm still obsessed with knitting, just not making a whole lot of time for it.
I'm not sure why I'm so drawn to socks right now- very simply patterns, like the toe up or the simple 2x2 rib I just finished are really easy to pick up and put down without having to figure out where things are.... maybe that's it.
YAY! Finished socks!
I love the way these turned out.
I am also LOVING law school. I've started a pre-program, kind of like law school boot camp. It's so exhilarating to be LOVING what I'm doing. Alas, there is a lot of work, a lot of reading, and not a whole lot of time for knitting right now. Oh well. All in good time.
In other news, I had a DATE last night. Very cute. Very nice. Very smart. Very lovely evening. And he wants to get together again. VERY GOOD. Will keep you posted.
The last few weeks in Austin were rough. I totally lost sight of WHY I was moving 700 miles away from dear friends and a great freakin town, and began to panic! By the time we got to New Mexico, though, I was back to feeling good about the move.
I am deeply in love with the high desert. I had forgotten how wonderful the sky is- amazing color, glorious cloud formations. I love watching storms blow in. I love dry heat. I love that it cools down so much at night. Sigh.
So... law school. I've started a sort of "boot camp" for law school- 2 mock classes structured in much the same way our regular classes will be structured, complete with case briefs, memos, and a final. Fortunately, none of the grades count- it's just practice. I've met some great people and I even have a date on Saturday night. I'll keep you posted.
In ALL the time I was gone from the blog, I didn't get a whole lot of knitting done. I gave up on the Alhambra socks. The pattern was perfect- REALLY GOOD- but my brain was severely crippled. I screwed up the first sock so badly in my leaving-Austin-panic that I couldn't even hope to replicate my errors on the second sock. So I threw the first sock away. Tragic, but theraputic.
I DID knit AND finish a very basic pair of ribbed socks. They're cute. Picture tomorrow.
Anyway, it's good to be back. Sorry I've been gone for so long!!!
