Cinco De Mayo??

Hello again, you lovely people.

It’s been nearly 5 months since my last post. First of all, how did that happen?? Second, it’s finals week and… Yeah, that’s how.

I did vend another booth, and this time I shared the space with Dewberry Creek Farms. I’ve also been keeping up with my knitting; very slowly, but I’m still making progress.

One of my professors banned my knitting in her class after approving it on the previous class day, which was unfortunate, yet somehow I’ve managed to knit an entire cardigan! Well… Almost. I’ve still got to add pockets and sew the underarms and block it and-

Like I said, it’s basically done!

I love the curious looks that I get whenever I take out my knitting or crocheting in a public place. It’s so fun, because it gives me an excuse to get something done while I’m also being marked ‘present’ and possibly introducing the idea that maybe knitting isn’t just for old ladies. The conversations that have begun in my classes just because I’ve gotten out my needles have been wonderful to observe, and my psychology professor even used my craft as an example in his lecture.

Maybe this weekend, as I pretend to study, I’ll be able to finish the cardigan and start on something new.

I’ve been thinking of picking up sewing again; I even bought a few (read: way too many) patterns to practice on.
