How time flies. . ..

when you're half asleep most of the day and realise you just went through 5 hours of classes. . . .weird eh?
So I'm 22, thanks for the birthday wishes everyone! Below is a pic of my cake. Yay! Yes, it's Hawkeye themed, wow, shocker. . .
Anna also got me some yarn, Cascade Pastaza, which is 50% llama & 50% wool. It's soo soft! I bought some more so I can make a hat, mittens, & a scarf if I finish my grandpa's.

Below is a pic of the scarf. I'm just about to finish the second skein, only needs about 1/2 of another and it should be done. It's kind of slightly growing on me. . . I still hate knitting scarves!

What else have I been up to? Below should be an answer, but I've also been working out, walking Mac, doing homework, trying to sleep, etc. The usuals when you're in college, except ordering in pizza for breakfast, lunch & dinner constantly. =P Yay for Smart Ones.

SOCK CLUB!!!!!!!

The sign-ups for he sock club will only be up until the 25th. They will be taken down by the evening of the 24th! Thanks!

Oh and Yay to the Packers for winning & Brett Favre is still HOT!!!!!!! hehehehe I'm heading up to Madison, Wisc this Friday with my sis for the Hawkeye vs Badger game. It should be awesome!!! Go HAWKS!

Holy Shit I'm 22. . . .

Yep, today is my 22nd birthday. Scary eh? 10 years ago I was 12. . . .damn that is frightening! In 8 years I'll be 30, holy shit!!!! That is a really scary! Anyways, I'm having some friends over tonight and chilling, drinking, eating pizza, cake, etc. Fun fun. Yesterday the Hawkeyes destroyed Syracuse, yay! My sister & I went to the game and had a great time. Michigan embarressed the conference once more yesterday and now Chad Henne is injured, wonderful. Enough of football. . . .
I have been working slowly, but surely on my grandpa's scarf. I took yesterday off from doing anything constructive. Below are 2 pics of the scarf. I'm about to start the second skein.

Detail shot:

Here is a pic of my grandma's scarf (yes, it's folded, it was blocked & then curled again damnit!) But it's still pretty. It is 52 1/2 inches long. I may never finish her footsies, but at least this is done.

Detail shot:

Below is a pic of my brother, Mike & I. Just thought I'd add it. I never see him much anymore because he lives in Austin, Texas. This is from last weekend. I miss him. =/

I'm done for the day. Kind of in a daze for some reason. . .

Hate/Hate Relationship. . .

I HATE KNITTING SCARVES!!!!! It's just boring!!! I finally finished my grandma's Cedar Scarf, which is blocking right now. Unfortunately the light in my bedroom is dark, so the pics didn't come out.
I am looking for rather simple holiday gifts for my family. . . .My sister bought me 6 skeins of wool yarn while she was in Turkey. It's not a colour I personally would wear. Sooooo, thinking about holiday gifts, my mind set on my grandpa. I thought, hey, he's a former colonol, why not? Sadly, this is exactly what I thought. Soo today I started an Irish Hiking Scarf for him. It's not too boring, but still. Ye know? Anyways, the pic of it soo far is below. Very neutral. heh. . .

This past weekend I also met my brother's girlfriend, Alisha. She's sweet and nice and everything I'm not. =P j/k I asked her what she wanted & she said footsies, so begins another pair of socks. My second pair of Wnky Cable Cabin Socks have gone on the back burner. I'm using my August Spunky Club olourway Celebration. She loves pink, and it has pink in it, but can also go with a bunch of other things.
