Life got cra-zy…

So, I was very sick over Spring Break, and in the ensuing weeks, school became absolutely crazy, leaving me with very little quality knitting time. I did start on some stuff. I think I’m going to have my hands full this summer, with the WIP I have going. No more yarn til grad school!

I found out about a month ago a good friend of mine from long ago is having her first baby. I’m working on the Big Bad Baby Blanket from SNB as a gift for her. I’m using Caron Simply Soft for it.

My progress on Clover has stalled for a while. While I was sick over break, I had some issues that basically boiled down to me needing to loose a lot of weight. My mom pretty much discouraged me from continuing to put so much effort into a sweater that hopefully won’t fit me in a year, so I’m sort of at an impasse – do I keep knitting on it (I’m only a few inches into a sleeve), or do I have the self-discipline to say, “I will lose the weight and knit this for myself as a final reward.” I’m still debating it, and I figure until I decide what I want to do, forward progress on it isn’t really a good idea.

Pictures tomorrow, camera batteries charge tonight!


About Kristy Lamb

I recently finished my PhD in genetics at Yale and am currently a postdoc at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University in NYC. I love science, people, and the fiber arts. We'll call it my muse. I taught myself to knit over Christmas break in 2002, when I was home from my sophomore year in college and was terribly bored. Despite starting with three big mistakes (very long aluminum needles, a very bad Coats & Clark how to knit book, and Lion Brand Homespun), I kept at knitting, even after that first 1/2 hour trying to tie a slipknot. Science...seems to be much the same process as the above.
