I finished my first project since I started knitting over the break (Sorry for the early morning photobooth picture). I made a cowl scarf with some of this chunky purple-ish yarn I got yesterday (see previous post) and I think I made it a little too big for my neck, but I don't think it's too bad for my first one. Now on to hats!

First Snow Day of the Semester

The morning started out great with finding out that NAU's campus was closed today due to inclement weather. Because of this, Greg wanted to make a trip to Hasting's to get Assassin's Creed Dos and I wanted to get something, not sure what, but something to keep me from getting bored throughout the day. Driving was out of the question because Greg's truck was buried. It's the one with the most visible windshield wipers.

Pre-Hastings trek pictures:

Almost there and unscathed!

Good eats at Burrito Fiesta (very Asian pose stolen from Forgetting Sarah Marshall)

And then a trip to Michael's for some yarn. Greg loves crafts!

On the way back home ran into some horses in the parking lot

Oh, hi horsey!

Just chillin' in snow chairs recovering from our epic journey

Now it's time to knit!

1st day of my last semester!

I have finally come to, what I hope is, my last semester of my academic career. I'm so happy to be almost pau with school after seven years straight of higher education, I can't even express it in a way that is socially acceptable. On another positive note, I have also found out that one of the professors I am working for this semester doesn't need me to TA any of his classes! If you have had to grade crap papers before, you know exactly why I feel this way. Today was a good day.
