Ahhh, the fresh scent of summer!

June 23, 2008

Finally, it’s the first week of summer and of summer vacation.

I’m knitting a lot more and hopefully I will be able to complete my summer goal of finishing all of my in progress projects. I know, chuckle chuckle.

Well, I’m off to go knit and enjoy the 70 degree weather. :) Happy Knitting.

Okay, ahhh… finals are basically Monday and Tuesday and then I’M FREE…at least for the summer. :)

AHHH finals

Just a few of my 1000 notecards I bought (on sale) at Staples. Most of them are for my bio final on tuesday. :)

So Friday I was able to bring home my cermamic projects.

The coil pot is my new knitting needle holder.

In addition to this last week, I GOT MY YEARBOOK!!! :)

And within one day:

hehe, most of the free space is filled. :)

Okay now to knitting. In spite of all of the stress and business of upcoming finals and biology, I have actually squeezed in time to knit. And even blog!

So since I’m a knitting nerd science lover, I’m starting to make a DNA model (which includes all four nitrogen bases- adedine, thyomine, ctyonine, and guanine- AND the double helix). I know. It screams nerd.

Also, today I went on a trip with my parents to a local art festival. I brought this:

AHH my bagtoday's progress

I didn’t make a whole lot of progress but I did pick up needles and knit some stitches so it counts. :) (by the way, if they look huge, they really are. They are for my dad and he wears size 13 shoe)

I also found and bought this:

hedgehog kithedgehog kit

Basically you are given this container of authentic alpaca wool and you twist it together with a needle and you are able to make a needle-felted creature (depending on the kit that you choose). I chose the hedgehog since it was so CUTE. :) I’m going to save it for the summer, so expect to see it in the next three months.

So today was AMAZING. I spent 3 (2 too many) hours at an art festival. I saw everything. Clay mugs, $5000 paintings a third grader could do, color pencil drawings of Seattle landmarks, clothing, peroshkis, akward interpretive dance, yarn, and KNITTERS!! Sure there were only like three, but still! And then when I was reading the Yarn Harlot’s blog (happy birthday by the way) it’s WWKIP day! I missed it. Even though I brought knitting, I didn’t actually knit in public. :( Oh well, maybe next year.

By the end of the day, I couldn’t feel my legs anymore and I was starving. We had to stop by petco and buy our little wild kitties of joy some more wet cat food. We ended up thinking logically this time and we bought (by my suggestion) a case of 24 large cans of salmon and something kitten cat food. And then 3 cans of this other turkey and giblets flavor (so we bought a total of 27 large cans of cat food. It will probably last for the next 27 days. We’ve uped their diet slightly since they are older and play a lot. We are giving them half a can per meal (two wet food meals a day). And we also bought a food bowl that has two bowls (like meshed together) and each of those two bowls get half of the half (so they each get a quarter of a can per meal).

Aren’t they cute??

In other news, I lettered in tennis. :) I was also a scholar athlete. :)

AHHH I lettered!!

Lettermen’s jacket here I come.

And at the end of the day, I’m home.

However I came home to this:

Yeah. Looks like I’m going to clean it tonight. :) This just happens to be what my room looks like after a long and stressfull week.

Happy Knitting everyone on this lovely day!
