Wow.

Hello, blog!

It’s been a while!

I went to Milan.

I went to Afghanistan.

(wasn’t really allowed to take any pictures…) but I stopped in Dubai! (This is the new tallest building in the world, btw.)

I wore myself out.

MY APARTMENT IS CLEAN.

I’ve been practicing doing math. I’ve been researching things that I want to do. I’ve been planning time with family, and time with friends. I’ve been taking ballet classes (more to come). I’ve been obsessively searching for accent jewelry pieces that do not make me feel generic. I’ve been adjusting to the cold weather! And generally enjoying myself.

I’ve started a new sweater. While the last one (for sister) was a lace pattern and very lovely, the lace pattern was large, the stitches were large, and the entire project was actually, if you can believe it, easier than it will be for me to complete this sweater in a very basic stockinette stitch with a raglan shape. Oy vey. I swear, it will be more difficult to finish, if only because I haven’t been giving it the time. Hopefully with some time riding in the car to family functions like Thanksgiving and Christmas, I might come close to finishing the body before New Year’s? It’s only pathetic because when Spud and Chloe did it as a knit along on their blog, it only took a couple of weeks, and that was ages ago, and I think I started around when they did! Nevermind that I had to stop and start over again.  I’ll post soon about this sweater alone and more about the knitalong — which is still available online even if those who were actually knitting along have long since finished.

Anyway, I am excited to be blogging again!

Friday Bind-off, wk 6

This has been a wild week!

I have been really excited about all of the buzz about my friend Justin and the album he released as part of his project called Sarasota. Joseph Gordon-Levitt found it and has been tweeting about how great it is, and it’s getting a lot of attention on his website, hitrecord.org. Amazing! I am so happy for Justin, and if you haven’t listened yet, I seriously advise you to do so!

Ok… things I liked this week?

I’ve started knitting Liesl, a cardigan pattern from Ysolda, and so I’ve got homework for the class I started on Wednesday. I’ve got two weeks to finish the yoke, so here’s hoping I get two weekends off from work, and maybe an evening or two. This weekend, we’re having a New College reunion potluck picnic (Sunday!) and I can’t wait!

Homemade cherry blossom special - modified slightly with grenadine rather than cherry liqueur

Sliced cucumbers with salt and pepper

Strawberries, blackberries, toasted baguette, OJ, and coffee, in my new mug from Barcelona!
