Get your geese in a row...

August 15th, 2008 (09:54 pm)

I am trying my darndest to get the E.Z. take-off sweater finished for the Ravelympics. I think, I might just make it!


I am officially onto the sleeves, which of course are only 3/4 length. So really it's like 1.5 sleeves worth of knitting. (I feel like that was really terrible grammar, but I don't have the brain to fix it right now. Sorry grammar police!)


You are probably noticing that the waist band isn't finished. That is purposely on hold to see if I have leftover yarn from the sleeves to make knit the band 1.5" long, right now I am running out of yarn for the band and am about .75" into the band. I still have one ball reserved for the sleeves.

I am also feeling a bit overwhelmed that summer is coming to a close very soon. I am heading back to school on September 2nd, and I just don't feel ready. There is so much to get done, and all I feel like doing is procrastinating. I am looking at my schedule, and all of the commitments I have made & starting to freak out just a tad. Work one day a week, 4 lab science classes, volunteering one day a week, teaching a sock knitting class! I really need to get it together, but am finding it hard to get out of the summer groove.
Speaking of summer grooves, check out Jon & Roy. They are a local Victoria band that I have recently fallen in love with! (Their music of course, not them personally :-P). The song, Right Groove, has been running through my head at work a lot lately. They are just the perfect West Coast summer sound.


Here's a pic of the bike out on the Galloping Goose. I can't believe how much fun riding a bike is!

And speaking of geese...


happy summer knitting,

I love your bike! It is just so cute! And I know exactly what you mean about the impending madness that is September. I'll be taking six classes, hopefully playing on a soccer team, and I just found out that I got a job teaching a chemistry lab at UVic (which I'm really excited about). Not exactly sure how I will make it all happen, but rest assured, somehow it still all happens!

Thanks Mary!

It is hard to get myself to want to knit, we are having a heat wave right now & I can't think of having a wool sweater on my lap!

Just keep thinking about how happy you'll be once fall comes and you have that sweater to wear! :)

you are totally right of course, Victoria weather can change in an instant. I'm sure this heat wave will be gone very soon to be replaced by the rainy season, & I will be thankful that I stuck with this baby.

Thanks Miki!
I know what you mean! It is so nice to turn off the brain at 5:30.

Thanks Wendy,
I have a good feeling about this sweater too! I think it'll get done in time :-)
My bike says thank you for the compliment.
