March 2008

Today is our 7th wedding anniversary.

Before we went to dinner Saturday night.

We spent the weekend at my grandmother’s apartment in West LA (she was out of town, so it was like a big, fancy hotel room.)

We had a really nice time, a lot of eating, some shopping, and running down at the beach. We both agree that we could live in her neighborhood, and be very happy. We loved running at the beach in Santa Monica, walking to the Farmer’s Market, and otherwise just hanging around.

Of course, there was a stop at a yarn store (because T loves me, and I spend hours and hours searching for a pair of shoes for him). We went to Wildfiber in Santa Monica, which was just as nice as the last time, except they no longer seem to be carrying Socks that Rock/Blue Moon Fiber Arts, which was a bummer.

I did get some yarn though:

Kollage Cornucopia, made from corn fibers somehow. My parents bought me two of those skeins, I bought a third.

Sublime Yarns Organic Cotton dk for Brighton. I did find some bag handles I liked, but the price was a bit much. I will probably make the bag (someday…) and then get handles.

I am knitting the hood of the Central Park Hoodie (the entire body and sleeves are done, and after the hood I have to do the button band and will be done.) Speaking of buttons, I bought some of those at Wildfiber too.

The ones of the left will be for the Malabrigo sweater I finished a while ago (and wear without buttons.) The ones on the right will be for the Central Park Hoodie.


It is done, and over, and I passed. They don’t tell you your score, just a pass or fail. Sigh. I am so relieved. I slept about 3 hours total last night, and almost didn’t go to the test. So happy that I did, and that I am done. And passed!

Thank you for your emails, texts, and comments of support. They are very appreciated.

Next up with 1 last exam. Once that one is passed, I am officially licensed.

Until my exam begins. I get my results immediately after completing the test.

I am one part confident, one part convinced of failure, and tons of parts anxious.

No knitting has been happening, and surprising little studying. I have been studying for a year, and I just can’t seem to do any more. I will probably review this afternoon, hopefully in the sunshine in my backyard. Tomorrow is a massage. And then the exam.
