One piece to go

Be still my beating heart — only one sleeve to go, and then I can put the brown sweater together and start thinking of other things. Here’s the front:


It’s beginning-of-term time around here. I’m not actually teaching or attending any classes this fall, but the return to routine still affects me. And Mark’s teaching two courses, so he’s in frantic last-minute-preparation mode. All I have to worry about is a meeting with my supervisor next week, in which I’ll have to admit to getting a disappointing (though unsurprising) amount of work done over the summer. Sigh.

Oh, and the fact that the returning undergraduates will be swarming the campus like locusts, creating lineups everywhere and undergoing strange Orientation Week rituals. But I think I can survive that…

I finally remembered to Blogroll you! How cute are you with your blueberry cake? Happy Belated.

That’s a nice looking sweater.

Any particularly interesting rituals? In Providence, they just tend to wander around looking lost and staring at their maps.

Hi. Love the work you do. Your pictures are excellent! I’m interested in trying an Aran or gansey so I enjoyed your notes…especially the beginning and ending dates. Thx for sharing. And I hope your family appreciates your talent.
