Well that was much less painful than I expected...

Back from Macroeconomics. I have not been withdrawn, thankfully. And come to find out, this was the last actual class we have to attend. Show up Thursday to pick up the *take home* final, then pop back in Tuesday to drop it off. And just like that, it's all over.

Now I'm just dreading my Management class this evening. I just realized that I totally forgot to submit my last project by Saturday since I had no internet for a few days. So I'll hafta take a hit on that one. And my instructor wants a doctor's note for my absences the past couple weeks. but my doc was out of town so he just called everything in. So now I hafta figure out how best to convince them to write me a note... maybe just saying that I was treated and when since I didn't have an actual appointment date, but I do have a giant prescription for hardcore antibiotics that I'm still not done with (10 days is forEVER) so maybe that'll work by itself. It's not like I could get that any other way than from my doc.

Anyway... now I have a little time between classes. I should use this time to work on my Psych project or perhaps clean my room (or at least start to find the floor in there again) but instead, I'm going to post some pictures, have some lunch, knit a little, ponder a nap, and maybe squeeze in a little work. Hey, I'm still worn out from being so sick. I feel better but man am I tired. Anything less than 12hrs of sleep at a time is not enough for me right now. Literally. I've been sleeping 12hrs a day. I had to sleep all day yesterday just to prepare for actually leaving the house today. It's ridiculous.

So here's something else that has turned out to be less painful than expected... A sweater!

I started this top-down raglan on Thanksgiving. By that evening, I had this (again, clicky for the big pics):

By yesterday afternoon, I had this:

This thing is just flying off the needles. It's going to be short sleeved and solid so it'll be done in no time, it seems (*knock on wood*).

It's Simply Soft Eco in Pine. WalMart doesn't carry regular SS anymore so I'm going to have to drive half an hour to get more yarn for my afghan but I did pick up a couple skeins of this (it's 20% recycled water bottles) and I'm liking it so far. I'm a smidge into the second skein now (a few rounds past this picture).

Speaking of the afghan, I might as well show that too. I finally got a charger for my camera battery the other day so of course I immediately went crazy taking pictures of all of my knitting. Lol.

This is the crazy 80's inspired entrelac afghan (again, details for all of these projects can be found on my Ravelry which is here: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/theknitphomaniac)
I guess this ties in to the topic as well since entrelac is something else that turned out to be way less painful than expected. I love entrelac, actually. It's great fun and looks so impressive!

The blankie:


And closer still:

This was inspired by my Lady Eleanor Shawl, which I lurve. I'll show that one off shortly. Right now, it's lunchtime.
