The Yarn Crawl

For those of you interested, there's a detailed rundown of the yarn crawl here. I still can't upload pictures, so I hope that it will be a good substitute for now!

The rundown...

Long time, no see! I don't know if I could properly begin to describe all the crazy things that have been going on with me in the last week and a half. I think the best way at this point is to just give you a list...

1. I graduated on Friday, last Friday that is.
2. Moved all of my stuff down to my new apartment on Saturday
3. Spent the day unpacking and going to dinner with my family on Sunday
4. Repacked and left for Toronto on Monday
5. Started my internship at the zoo on Tuesday
6. Spent the week learning the ropes (of which I'm still learning)
7. After the zoo I went to the launch of the Yarn Harlot's new book on Friday.
8. Went on a yarn crawl around downtown Toronto on Saturday with the Harlot and a bunch of very fun knitters.

..... This is the part where, if I were telling you all these things in person, I'd take a minute to breathe...

It's been an overwhelming couple of weeks, but I have to say, despite the stress I may have felt at times, it's all been an exciting adventure that I'm so glad I've been a part of.

I really wish I could share some pictures with you and go into a little more detail about these things, but I'm using a computer that I can't upload my pictures on. Hopefully we'll get the wireless internet working here in a few days (though it may be longer than that) and I'll be able to share some great picture with you, including what I purchased on the yarn crawl!

So it ends.... or it's only just beginning....

Yesterday was the last day of classes. If I decided to never go to school again, then it was my last class ever. I can't say that thought makes me all that upset. Maybe someday I'd like to take some classes again, but right now, I'm just ready for life. School tends to make me feel like I'm in limbo!

Anyway, I have three finals to take, a graduation to attend, and I have to focus on this as well...That's right... moving. I have to pack up the apartment and move to a new one before I head over to Toronto for my two month stay as a student intern. Now that I have time to think about it (rather than the hundred and one projects and tests) I'm really starting to get excited. Not only am I excited about the zoo, but I just found out that the Harlot is having a little shindig at on of the bookstores in Toronto just three days after I arrive. If I'm feeling adventurous and not too tired, I may just go!

As for knitting, there's been a little. I had to rip out the sock and start again because the pattern didn't fit over my foot. I added one more repeat to the pattern and now it seems to fit just fine.
