8 hours + of sleep

Amazing. This whole week I've been staying up til midnight and getting up around 6:15am. Not very conducive to my happiness.

But last night I went to bed around 10 for a bit, and then woke up for about 15 minutes at 11. Then I slept until 7:30 when my phone friend apologized and I went back to sleep until almost 9 oclock.

I feel so much better now that I've had a good night's sleep.

Last night I cast on for Jacob's scarf because the Razor Cami is wearing away at my fingers. Cotton twist isn't the softest thing. This Bernat Softee Chunky is pretty smooth and soft. I've got one stripe down. I don't know how many I'm going to do, I guess just until I'm about to run out of white yarn. I'm going to try and weave in ends as I go so I don't cry at the end.

Oh, and 1930? Yeah, finished it last night in time for the Ravelry UFO deadline. It's horrible, I hate it, but it's finished and I never have to look at it again. =]

All I really want to do is knit.

But instead I am writing a paper on the industrialization of biology. I hope I spelled that right, I seem to spell it differently everytime I type it.

Bought Stitch n' Bitch yesterday, just because. I only have one "technique" book and it's always good to have another. I want to teach myself how to use charts by making the little heart swatch with raised purl bumps because that would be quick but I can't let myself. I think I'm going to cast on for Jacob's scarf and just do it in garter stitch. I don't know how wide he wants the stripes, but..oh well. I'll see what I can do. I guess I'll have to get Steven to give it to him since I don't see Jacob anymore. But I SAID I would knit him a scarf so I will. And he bought the yarn and I guess it would be mean of me just to keep it.

I'm having doubts on the scarf pattern I picked out. All of the examples I could find on ravelry aren't in the color I'm thinking about using, so I think that's part of it. I think with the right color and in wool or something like it it'll turn out the way I want. (Having a car would make getting this yarn a whole lot easier. But I guess Wes will take me by there sometime this week...or he said he would, anyway.)

Back to penicillin and all that jazz. I had to remove Stitch n' bitch from my bed where I'm working so that I don't look at it...SIGH.
