I'm alive! I started out with 3 grad school classes and dropped to 1. It's so much easier with one, especially when it's interesting and I like the professor. It's painful to learn about the "foundations of information" when I've worked in libraries long enough to know I won't use it in my day to day life. I have a test to take this weekend, but so far I have an A in the class. I also know I can't continue taking them one at a time--so here's to more classes (and probably less knitting) next semester. ;)
I've been knitting too! I made a hat for my friend Melissa's daughter (OK, total disclosure--I used to babysit MELISSA! It's a little scary she has a baby herself. I am old.)
I also am working on a sock in this pretty yarn. The pattern is Roundabout, and I am nearly finished with the gusset decrease now (this was taken yesterday).
jesseknits on Ravelry. You can sign up in her Rav group here. I'm really looking forward to it--Jesse designs the most beautiful patterns!
Halloween was fun and the yard is full of leaves now. We have a huge maple tree in our backyard that waits until the last possible minute and drops EVERYTHING! So my grass is covered in pretty yellow leaves. I know the ground will soon be white, so I will take the leaves every time.
Here's some Halloween pics:
And the last rose of the season:
