Five more days 'til Vacation

So I finished those socks:

They're really soft and comfortable. Even though they have those icky holes in the heels, they'll make nice slipper-socks for the holidays =)

I also finished Christina's hat a few days ago and have since received a number of rave reviews about it--all from Christina. I'm glad you like it and I'm doubly glad it keeps your head warm. But because Christina loves it so much, I was unable to photograph it, so you'll just have to guess what it looks like based on pictures from previous posts. Sorry guys.

And since both final papers are now behind me, I treated myself to starting the Torque sweater. I made some alterations to the pattern and hopefully it will fit me well. The one on the webpage fit that woman rather dumpily and I don't like sweaters that do that. So we'll see how it turns out. I'm pulling for 'well.'

If I don't update before I leave, have a wonderful vacation everyone!!

This is clearly a sign that you don't hang out with us enough, because I rave about that hat every time I see it, which is every time I see Christina (which is all the time). :)

Happy break, and merry Christmas, if I don't see you before you leave for home!! :)

How about taking a picture of me modeling the amazing hat? Then you can get its full effect. And Sunmi's right-- every single time I see her, she says "I LOVE THAT HAT!"

I could do that, but then I'd have to carry the camera around with me. Unless you want to come here and model for me. I'm so glad you all like it--that makes me feel all warm inside (no joke)
