Crunch Time

Thanks so much to all who left comments on my last post. I'm especially grateful to those who validated my self-pity - now that was awesome ;) In all seriousness, your kind words and thoughts really cheered me. It certainly is nice to be part of this little community, isn't it?

Frisky also thanks you - see the sincerity in his eyes? (Or is he just begging for that piece of cheese on the counter?)

I am in week 2 of Feeling Much Better. So, now it's the end of another semester and I'm up to my ears in papers and exams that still need to be graded. This is an improvement over yesterday, when I was up to my forehead in papers and exams. Just two more exams to administer and then I can hang up my hat for a week or two before summer session begins. Woo!

Now, on to the really important issue: knitting. I am ready to divide for the front and back of the Sleeveless Drops Top and thought I would share some pics of its turquoise yumminess:

This colorway (Dream in Color Blue Lagoon) is really fabulous. I'm so glad to have found a project for this yarn, especially a sleeveless one as I tend to wear a lot of this kind of top layered over blouses and tees. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a good fit - so far, it's right on.

After this I am looking forward to dipping into some DK cotton and cotton/bamboo stash I've had lying around. There are some terrific summery top patterns - now, how to choose? Any ideas? What are you knitting this summer?

I generally knit with wool, so my knitting is pretty much seasonless. Choosing a pattern is always tough, and fun! I think planning a project is almost as much fun as wearing it.

Hope Frisky got that piece of cheese.

Very pretty blue!
I hope everything goes smoothly and you have a very relaxing vacation.

Glad to hear you are feeling better. I am loving the top too. Summer is coming and I think we need to plan a Sunday knit in at the park soon. Hope to see you on Saturday.

Glad you're feeling better! Love that pattern, and the color is yummy! Can't wait to see it finished.

Blue Lagoon is such an awesome color, I love to see it knit up!
