It has been a busy time for me over the last couple of months. I am now half way through my final semester, I graduate in May-Yay Woo!-and I have been avidly searching for a new job since my current one will end when I graduate. As of Tuesday afternoon, I have a job. It begins April 1st. I’m very excited. It’s more money than I’ve ever made before and it is here at the University so I don’t even have to change my morning commute. A definite plus. With all of these changes, and the fact that today is the first day of Spring, though I know some of you will have quite a ways to go before it seems anything close to “Spring-like”, I found myself reflecting. This, to me, is the New Year. Not that day in January, the first day of Spring, when, at least here in Texas, it is beginning to warm, and the green is making an appearance. New life, new year. And today was the perfect day for it. The breeze still on the chilly side, the air scented with the rain that the heavy clouds overhead carry and occasionally allow to fall. A beautiful way to begin. And a wonderful day to have a nice warm bowl of lentil soup.
So things have been a bit crazy around here. Going back to work after the holidays, car went into the shop last week, and school started. It’s my final semester-WooHoo!-plus I joined the Frisco Chorale. I started rehearsals last Monday and we’ve added two medleys. This semester is Broadway, which works for me, I like Broadway. We’ve started working on Les Miserables and Porgy and Bess. I think this is going to be a fun semester. I am also continuing my search for a new job for when I graduate. I really hope I find something soon. I have loans I’m going to have to pay back.
It’s the Graham by Jennifer Adams. The only changes I made were I used a fine yarn (CloudSoft black) instead of Eco Alpaca by Cascade, and since the yarn was smaller, I cast on 120 stitches instead of 96. I also repeated rows 23 and 24 to end up with the same amount of stitches at the top to close together. It’s very soft and big, just as he wanted.
I think he likes it…
This has been a relaxing, yet hectic holiday. I was out of town for part of it, but soon I hope to have pictures of Christmas to post.
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.
Happy Yule! Or Solstice,or whatever you prefer. I’m working to finish the last of my presents. I hopeeveryone is ready forChristmas.
So I added yet another project to the queue on Tuesday, but that’s ok, I finished it last night. Now I just have 3 projects left to finish. Two by this weekend and one by next weekend.
I can totally do this.

At noon, I’m headed to the Ewe to pick out some yarn…wish this crazy person good luck…
