No time for pictures this morning (maybe I’ll post some tonight), but I did sew up the coat; I still need to weave in some ends and sew on buttons. I’m not sure if I have any that will work, or if I need to go buy some. I think the coat is too small for me, unfortunately. But I’m still reserving final judgement until the buttons are on.

I also finished the first sleeve of the Lett-Lopi sweater, and am just now starting the second. And then, as soon as the sewing is finished on the coat, I’m starting Rogue! I’m going to start with a sleeve, I think; it seems less intimidating, somehow.

I didn’t make it to the gym yesterday; I went into the department for coffee hour instead. And then I socialised and worked and waited for students in my office hour, but no one came to see me, so I finished my reading for the day. My class had a quiz; I had intended it to be fairly straight-forward and short, but I think I miscalculated somewhat. I allowed 45 minutes for the quiz, with the lecture starting at 10 minutes past the second hour of the class. Within 6 minutes of the beginning of the quiz people had started handing them in, and by the end of 30 minutes everyone was done. So we all sat around for a while, and it was all faintly ludicrous, but the class didn’t seem to mind too much. And they didn’t all ace the test, either, judging from a cursory glance over the papers. I guess they were just the sort of questions that one either knows or doesn’t know, and can make that determination very quickly.

Anyway, the lecture afterward by my TA went well, and I’m not really worried about the 10% quiz, but it was amusing, nonetheless.

Today I really will get to the gym, and then I’m going to the library. So not much knitting for me today; but I’ll try to put up a picture of the coat by tomorrow.

Happy Wednesday!
