It's been a trying week

There's a new dent, nay crater, in my car. I had nothing to do with it. I've been exhausted for a good week and a half. Then there are family and financial issues. *sigh* Add one part PMS and shake vigorously. :-P

On a brighter note, I've started crocheting something larger than a potholder! Behold, my first afghan!

Also, I'm learning to knit SOCKS! :)

Well, sock, so far. Actually it doesn't really resemble a sock much yet. But whatever...

I love how impressive DPNs look. ;)
This is just the practice sock. I'm eagerly awaiting another package from Canada. A lovely lovely fellow craftster-er has graciously sent me a whole bunch of sock yarn!! Woohoo!!! Bernat Sox and some KnitPicks. I'm beyond excited!

I came agross a big sack of worsted cotton last weekend for $5 so I'm swatching for this:
Pretty In Pink Tank

I'm also working on a Hello Kitty hat. That will be accompanying me to the IMAX theater Friday night. We're going to see Superman.

School is still going really well. 6 tests between the two classes and nothing less than a 92. Actually, one 92, two 93's, one 96, and one 100. Woohoo. (Yes, I realize that's only 5. Haven't gotten the 6th back yet.) I'm all signed up for three classes this fall. Just have to make another visit to FinAid and I should be good to go. I hope it'll cover more of my book costs this time. :-P

Well, now I'm going to see what I can scrounge up for dinner. Hopefully I can get ready for bed at a decent hour so I can work on my sock. :)

I'll leave you with a this picture of the boy and me participating in another of my favorite hobbies. ;)

mmm... beer
