Its been a really long time

Wow it really has been a long time. Alot has happened. I started back at school this semester and I am still trying to get in 30+ hours at the pharmacy.

I have not finished those Jaywalkers but I am this close. I just have to stitch up the rest of the toe and all the ends. I think there is 5 ends to tuck in.

I started a sweater from Romantic Style, the short short bed jacket also in cream. I think I should have started the collar first since it has taken me almost as long as the sweater itself to knit. I will post that pic when I actually get the collar done and the sweater sewn together. I still have to do the trimming. I was hoping to have it done by this weekend so maybe fully completed by next weekend. I also have made a couple of the crocheted belts in the same book. Those need finishing as well.

I also got a package from my International Scarf Pal, she was unable to finish a scarf so she sent me all kinds of goodies including bamboo circulars, a brown skein of Handmaiden Sea Silk and 3 balls of a cashmere blend blue yarn. Love it all! I really can't wait to start knitting with it.
Oh and look at what I found at Red Needle. The 1st Rowan. Vintage. I l-o-v-e it!!

Tomorrow night is the big basketball game and I am going to watch the game downtown with this guy I met last month. I don't think he realizes how big of a fan I am. I guess he will find out.

Other than that I am trying to get back my sock knitting mojo. I just haven't felt like starting another pair. I feel like I am betraying my knitting.
Heres a pic of some earrings that I made out of leftovers I think that they are a tad too big but love them anyways.
