Saturday night in blog-land.

Today I finished a calorimetry with the leftovers from my socks. I used a number 4 needle and followed the pattern exactly. I am quite fond of it...

In addition, I made a square for my mohair granny square scarf.

I am using "Flore" by Plassard. I have never seen it before in stores, I got it from my grandmother. I don't think she intended for these colors to go together, but I adore them. It looks somewhat like pop-art to me. I haven't decided what color to connect them, as I am dealing with a very limited supply. Maybe I will check ebay? Have any of you ever tried that?

Another yarn from my grandma:

Cascade 220 Superwash.

I knit this basic hat for my friend Zack. The only fancy thing I did was make a mock cable on the knit parts of the ribbing. So: K2 P2 ribbing on row 1. Row 2: mock cable, k2

The other day, I wore this:

Orange jacket from the Village Discount Outlet, purple dress from goodwill, purple tights from Claire's, and orange flats from Goodwill as well.

Oh yea, and my black belt that is part of my uniform.

In Dexter news:

I knit it back and forth after much trouble with dpns, magic loop, etc.

Hopefully tomorrow I can finish the sleeve. It will be the first Sunday I've had off in months. I am so pumped. Campus is super empty because of the holiday so I am spending the night cozy and alone in my tiny box of a dorm room. I feel very content to do nothing. Not that I've been the picture of productivity lately, but still.

Knit on, yo!
