Spinning again

Yarn Hollow , originally uploaded by Wileycomma.

I got home from college last Wednesday night, and I've spun up this yarn since I've been back. It's about 150 yards, 4.5 ounces of Yarn Hollow superwash merino wool in Chai. Very beautiful and squishy.

I'll be knitting a Thorpe with it and using the other Yarn Hollow yarn a few posts back for the contrast color.

Catch up

Here's what I've been up to.

Mini Mitten Ornaments for gifts. And a crocheted sock yarn blanket.

I think I've gone crazy. Crochet is helping with my dexterity now. I can knit Continental now, too.

In other words, I have one more week of classes and two more days of finals and then I get to go home again. My first semester of college went by really fast. Is it always like this? Probably not, right? I've had a great time. I haven't made too many new friends, but I get along really well with my roommate and her boyfriend, and I've got several people from high school here. I am happy to say that I've gotten a bit better at talking to new people though. I've always been a shy person and I'm still shy. I sometimes struggle with being around new people and old friends at the same time. For example, when my best friend's friends visit, and I don't know them very well or at all, then I'd just rather leave. I'm really working on becoming more adult about it, but as with most things, it's going to take some time. End of semester wrap up? It's been nice.
