This one, from the summer issue of Knit.1 (it's the one with the lady wearing sunglasses), is coming along swiftly. Big gauge is so fun! The yarn is Blue Sky Alpaca cotton (funny, no alpaca), which is soft and snuggly and wonderfully teal. Even without blocking, I'm loving the cool bold lace yoke, and, although it was a total PITA beyond all PITAs, the i-cord edging around the neck and arms is just right.
I've realized my posting is getting sparser, which made realize that I'm exhausted. Not as exhausted as during residency when I was deprived of all basic needs (sleep, food, water, smiles), but still. I've started working out in earnest, thanks to the gym being in the same building as my work, and now my days look like this:
1 hour - wake, walk to work
10 hours - work
2 hours - work out
1 hour- shower, walk home, scarf down dinner
2 hours - study for board exams, which I cannot fail because they cost $3000, plus the shame
8 hours - sleep
Ok, ok, some of that study time goes to knitting and knitblog/ravelry-perusing. Still, it would be great to have 1 more hour in the day to chat with all you lovely people, but duties call. So please forgive the lack of posts, until I get into shape and take my boards.
