Chemistry v. Knitting

It seems that chemistry wins today, unfortunately. I'm treating today like a Sunday so that maybe I'll get more work done and then I'll be less stressed tomorrow. Big chemistry exam on Monday...

In other news, I have a toe up sock on the needles! However, I kind of haphazardly substituted a sport weight yarn for fingering weight and changed needles it might end up a little big!

I'm kind of thinking not though--I do have rather large feet! Guess I'll try to figure it out and keep knitting ;)

Oh, I can't wait for the seems like a beacon of knitting. After finals week, I am using my WEBS gift certificate and indulge myself with some new yarn. Although...I guess I have plenty ;)

Speaking of gift certificates, my birthday is next weekend, so I'm trying to decide what places I should ask for gift certificates from! Any suggestions?

End of hiatus

Okay, so I'm a bad blogger and knitter.

But, since I've last posted, I can now do these things:
*Knit a sock cuff down
*Cable without a needle
*Double knitting
*Chain crochet stitch!

Okay, not very impressive, but life has been rough lately. Next on the list is to learn toe up socks..I just need to learn a provisional cast on. I'm thinking about the figure 8 cast on.

I'm trying to stay focused on knitting more, but unfortunately I'm just not feeling it. There is hope though, I've been working a bit more on an ever-work-in-progress scarf.
