Final grades are in and I received a 4.0 for the semester. I had 9 credit hours plus a 32 hour work week. Both A's have made me very happy.

I finished my semester last night, so I will have a lot more time to knit and post pictures. This post is for the Hogwarts Sock Swap. I will have photos of other projects up soon. I have a very nice cabled sock from Favorite Socks in some Yarn Pirate that I am very proud of.
I am currently working on the Jaywalker Pattern from Magknits, but I am worried about the socks being to tight. I am knitting them on size 1 Lantern Moon Sox Stix which are my new favorite double points. I haven't taken knitting socks on circular needles yet. I'm way to attached to my dpns.
The socks fit me really well, but I am not the largest person ever. I would love to hear others opinions. So far my new computer battery is working well. I'm calibrating it or what have you. Now off to Disneyland with Sean. Have a great day everyone.

I finished the first of my flatiron socks. I'm going to name them Bessy Higgins. I feel bad that I've already used Molly Gibson as a sock name although the color was totally Molly.
The link is for Jen. She always says she wants to visit The Loopy Ewe but wants my blog to get the credit. If you are a sock knitter, this is a great site to get yarn, needles, accessories. Sean is visiting soon so I'll have him take photos of some finished objects.

Happy Mother's Day to any mothers who read this. I called my own mother first thing this morning. We had a nice conversation.
I just received a call from my mother asking me if I liked her. My life is weird.

A real life update. I caved earlier this month and bought new lamps. This is because my bedside lamp (only 60 watts) has a short in the switch. Yes, I know I can rewire the switch in my sleep, but I don't own the tools yet. I found a set on Target that is a table and floor lamp combo. I was wanting to pick up another floor lamp for the living room so I was there. Today I received the lamps from The UPS guy didn't come until after 7 PM. They are all assembled and in place, but the bulb bought for the floor lamp was to large. I luckily had a spare 100 watt bulb. I replaced all the dead bulbs that were around.
Today the car cost me $230 to change the oil, fuel filter, and transmission fluid. My car is just shy of 30,000 miles. Last month the car also cost a lot due to needing new brakes. I made new keys so Sean can come and go as he please while he's here. He doesn't love me enough to buy me the Sarah yarn. Alok does, but I wouldn't let him buy it.
I have been knitting socks lately, even though I only remember studying for Anthropology of Religion. I finished the first of my Flatiron Socks. I'm worried about yardage. I am using the needle case that I bought from Socks-for-MumNeedle Case Both of her daughters just graduated from Auburn so congratulations again.
Congratulations to Alok as well from graduating from the University of Illinois Chapagne-Urbana (I have no idea if that's spelled right).

Does anyone love me enough to buy this yarn for me? Labyrinth Yarns
The colors in Sarah are all of my favorites. I also love Sir Ditymus(?) as both a character and yarn
