I am so close to being finished my exams… one more tomorrow! It’s in the evening until 10pm, which isn’t great, but after that I’m off for the summer (and to find a job)! I’m also moving on Saturday (back to my parents’ house for the summer), so the next few days are going to be busy ones.
Appropriately, I also finished my exam socks today! I made these up as I went along, but they’re pretty basic- toe-up, short row heel with gusset, and 1″ of ribbing at the top. I also made these quite tall, I worked even for about 5″ after the heel. The yarn is Lion Brand Sock-Ease in 133 Circus Peanut. This was my first time using this yarn and it’s a pretty average sock yarn. What I really loved about this skein was the colour! It’s so bright and cheery for spring, which was much needed today as we got the annual ‘I thought we were done with this’ April snowstorm.
These are also my (very late) March socks for my 12 socks in 2014 challenge, since I never finished the socks I cast on in March. I’m hoping to finish another pair this month so I’ll be back on track!
I haven’t been doing a lot of reading this week outside of my coursework, but I have been sneaking in a few pages of House Girl by Tara Conklin when I have a spare moment. It’s a great novel, and I’m really liking how the historical and modern timelines play off each other.
Let me know in the comments what you’re currently knitting and reading! If any of you are also writing finals, good luck! Have an amazing day.
