Greetings and Dear Cynthia,
Thank you everybody for your kind wishes and words... I took my test today, and though I thought there might be a chance I'd have my score in hand by now, that is not the case, and I wait. I have to say I am feeling a huge sense of "Yay I don't have to study Chemistry any more for a while" type of relief, and am happy to be back in the posting business.
I started a sleeve on my nephew's sweater. I picked up stitches at the arm hole, worked back and forth for about an inch to accommodate the inset part of the sleeve cap, then joined to work in the round. Always nice when every few rows the number of stitches decreases (rather than the increasing I had grown so accustomed to on the last several sweaters I've made.....). I'm just about ready to put it on double pointed needles as I continue to work toward the cuff.
There's also the Branching Out Scarf, which is not quite halfway yet, but which is very quick, so I'm not **too** worried about missing my deadline.
And finally, after spending a lot of time studying about freezing point depressions, and vapor pressure, and electron orbitals, and ideal gases (which I should be an expert on, given that the three males I live with share theirs so freely), I have a few other things to contend with...such as this:and this (that pile of mail that I am not able to deal with immediately upon its arrival -- How do people manage that? Seriously....I'm all ears for tips on this one!):In any case, first things first, and in just a few minutes we are going to walk over to a local restaurant and grab ourselves a nice meal out to **celebrate** the exam is over. Perhaps it is best not to know my score just yet.....
