Spring Break 2 Days away. . .

I am sooo thankful Spring Break is coming up because the past few weeks have been hell. I'm actually writing this post thirty beautiful minutes before I take a midterm. Yep, midterm season! Ew. . .anyways, so this past weekend my 2007 Ford Focus died on me and I ended up half way sticking out on Burlington, which is a major road is Iowa City. Yeah, I had to get it towed to Firestone, the Ford dealership isn't open on the weekend ooo. The alternator died and so the battery was bad. $740 and 3 1/2 hours of my life later it ran. But today I have to go and get a differ battery because the one in it doesn't fit perfectly. Yay life.
Yesterday this cute little package arrived at my door, literally. I won Janice's contest on the cutest memory of your pet. I won Shi Bui yarn! and an awesome cake carrier. I've never used Shi Bui yarn before, but it feels like Koigu. It's beautiful, my only concern would be that my Koigu socks didn't stand up as well as my other scks. We'll see how this does. =) It's the perfect colour for my brother's girlfriend Alicia, she LOVES pink.

Here is the yarn up close.

The hat below is being knit out of some of my handspun from Spunky Eclectic's fiber club. It's called party dress and I spun it to stripe. It obviously is striping beautifully. The hat is actually almost done, this pic was taken yesterday morning I believe and I only have a little ways to go till I cast off. I love the feel of the wool and it knit up soooo fast. I love it!

I actually finished another hat already. Friday I had to go and see a university production of August Wilson's "The Piano Lesson." I had to see it for 2 classes actually. I'm a theatre major and love theatre, but this play was 3 hours long and started at 8pm. Sooo, me being me, I dragged along circular needles and yarn, it was only the neon green yarn. Great stash busting project. I can sit and knit stockinette for hours without looking down at it. My friend Barry was in it and he mentioned he saw me in the front row fiddling with yarn. I asked when I'm not fidling with yarn. hehehe. It was very good and the knitting kept me frm falling asleep.
