As it is the end of the semester, things are both winding u and winding down. The time for classes is running out, but more and more work is being piled on.
On the knitting front, things have of course slowed down due to my course work. I’m doing my best to knit and spin every day, but some days I just can’t get around to it.
To start, I’ve finished the Raha scarf that I had started only a couple of weeks ago. It was a surprisingly quick knit despite the face that it was a lace scarf. I very much enjoyed it. The pattern comes from Knitted Lace of Estonia, which is a wonderful book, with stories and techniques and gorgeous patterns.
My “Helm’s Deep” project is moving along slowly bur surely, but I haven’t taken any pictures of it recently so I don’t have anything to share on that. I feel odd not having a post with pictures of my knitting since it’s such a visual medium.
Hopefully I’ll have more updates more regularly, bt things might still be sporadic until mid-May when the semester is over.
And, if you’re curious, the classes I’m planning to take in the fall (because I still have 4 semester until I get my bachelors) are: Italian I and Culture, Intro to Sociology, Shakespeare II, Asian-American Literature, and Creative Writing: Poetry.
