No knitting, but some finishing


So I finally got around to blocking all my endpapers. (not sure why the photo is blurry. .. . must be from compressing it down from 4 MB) Blocking really did settle down and even out the floats, so the pattern looks much more even. I'm very pleased with my first (well, first 3!) attempts at color work. The turquoise pair went out to Anna today. My pair are now living in my coat pocket and the final pair will go to their giftee as soon as her scarf is dry from it's blocking.

Deb's socks & mom's bag are coming along, as well.

On an unrelated note, I'm going back to school!! No, really! I've toyed around with the idea for a while now. At first I was just going to audit some classes, but I decided to actually apply to the Associates degree program. I'm not going back full time, just one class for now in the evening. What am I studying, you ask? Interior Design! Fun, right?! I'm pretty excited. Since I've gotten back into knitting and doing house projects and sewing, I'm discovering this is something I really think I'd like, and also that I'd be good at. So I'm off to the community college tomorrow to officially enroll. Yay!

Nice! The turquois pair is my favorite, but I think I'm just partial to that color.

Very exciting about the design classes! Sounds like loads of fun!

The thought of Seth McFarlane as God is kind of frightening. Now in church all I will hear in my head is Brian's voice!!

They are all beautiful - but I've got dibs on the turquois pair! How exciting to get started on a career path you find exciting -good luck and enjoy the experience.

Hey Carly, how does the essential feel for those handwarmers? Is it soft, or kinda itchy? I'm thinking about buying some but the last two times I bought yarn from them I didn't really like the feel...
