Five Things Friday

Haven't done this one in a while...

1. IT'S SNOWING!!! I wanted to post photos but we didn't get out in it until right before we had to leave the house.
1a. Because it is snowing, this means I get to wear the Clapotis! I'm wrapped up in it right now and it's so cozy and soft. This is going to be a daily wear for me until I knit something I love more. That will be tough.

2. I cast on for my 'finish by February' Lady sweater last night. This morning when I looked for a cardigan to wear I remembered that I haven't bought any cardigans because I thought I would knit them all. Yeah. So that means I will be wearing one of two cardigans that I already own for the next several months or possibly until next fall.

3. Test is done! Test went ok!

4. My new coworker is a camera addict too and said that he knows a guy that might be able to get me a super cheap deal on a Holga. Woot!
4a. I took my first roll on the Lomo! Must drop off this weekend.

5. Kidlet is done being sick (I think)!
5a. Maybe we will go to the pumpkin patch?

That's it for me. This weekend, I'm hoping to get some schoolwork in amongst the knitting, knitting, knitting. And cooking. And eating. And laughter and fun. Hope you do the same (well, hopefully you won't have to do the schoolwork).

I will have to double-check, but I remember seeing Holgas in the bookstore at Sierra Nevada College for extremely cheap as well. Like maybe $20?

So are we officially knitting on the February Lady Sweaters? Can I start?? Yippee!!

Oh, and is that same pumpkin patch/farm still in operation?

snow!?!?! i cannot believe it. wow. it's still in the mid-seventies here, though mornings are cool. we finally turned off the AC and opened the windows... pretty late for us, but i love the fresh air.

hooray for your clap. i still have to make one of those. a secret pal sent me gorgeous yarn for it, but the pattern stymied me and i've been reluctant to try again...

Glad you did well on your exam. I can't believe you have snow...even we have not had snow yet...however it was -7C last night. That is darn cold. All my flowers in the garden are pretty much toast now.

You got a lomo? When did this happen?
