DONE

I am done exams! Woohoo! Let the celebrations begin! I think I even did well on my Igneous Petrology exam. I went through it, before I handed it in, and I (frugally) gave myself marks and I'm pretty much guaranteed at least a 70%. Normally that is the kind of mark I don't like, I like higher marks, but this is a very difficult class with an even more difficult professor, and the class average right now is like a 50-something. Plus, I may get BETTER than 70%.

In other news, I'm trying to make a sleeveless turtleneck out of the beautiful soft Sally Ann yarn, although I'm not sure if it'll work or not:

A) I might end up short of wool, although I think it'll be OK. It may be mockneck though.

B) The pattern that I'm using is for a ribbon wool. I can knit to the proper gauge using size 7 needles, but that makes a really tight fabric, and I don't think that I'll have enough to do it that way, so I went up to size 13 needles. Now the fabric has beautiful drape, but my gauge is off by 1 stitch and 1.5 rows. This means I now have no idea what to do for the armhole shaping, and I'm just about there. Any suggestions?

I'm also going to the Dr. today to get my sore throat checked out. I've had a sore throat for almost 3 weeks now, and it's not getting better. I also have a package to mail, and a cheque to drop off. Busy busy busy!
