Knit it, Violet!
Finished objects, works in progress, and lots of rambling about two sticks and some string...

If it wasn't for that darn college education and working for a living, I would be getting a ton of Christmas knitting done, I swear! As it is, I'm doing okay. Here's a little update on what's been keeping my needles hot:

The Brother Sock. Okay, to be fair, this was a birthday knit, but I accidentally only ordered one ball of yarn, so only one was done on time. Okay, not entirely done. But why bother grafting when you can't start your second sock? I really need to order that second ball. I am a bad sister. oops.

The Other Monkeys. These are a Christmas gift, but I won't say for whom. It only one sock, but I wanted to give you a front and back view so you can see how the yarn is working up. I'm digging it.

Christmas Sweater #2. I'm quite a few inches into the body of this baby and so far so good. I hope the recipient likes it! I'm finished with the body of Christmas sweater #1, but after getting cocky with my sleeve modifications, I had to frog the entire sleeve, so it's on a shelf for awhile. I really need to get going on both, so I can start more gifts! I'm definitely feeling the pressure, but compared to the midterm pressures I've had going on this past month (I've gotten A's on all my midterms, and an 89% on another exam, by the way!) knitting pressures are pleasurable.

In other news, I went to the Midnight Madness S&B at Handmade Memories on Friday night with Karla and Kellen. It was a ton of fun, and it was great to meet other Humboldt knitters that I had previously only known through blogs and Ravelry. I also picked up a yummy skein of yarn for my Secret Pal's October package.

Speaking of Secret Pals, I got a sweet e-card from the person sending to me, who gave me some migraine tips, so I thought I'd update on the Migraine Situation. I went to the doctor a few weeks ago and got samples of Maxalt and Frova to try out. Then, luckily, I was headache free for a few weeks! This morning, I woke up with a monster one, though, so I took a Maxalt and it really helped! My only gripe is that it took quite awhile to kick in and it made me a little drowsy. I was able to go to work and school, though, and that's all I ask!

Okay, I just wanted to catch my little blog up on what's been going on in my neck of the woods. There's a lot more, but it's so hard to blog secret knits!

Oh I'm so glad the medication helped a bit - I know there are a lot available, so if one has side effects you don't like, I'd definitely keep going back to your doctor. With the kind of schedule you have, you can't afford to settle for less than what's best for you!

And in amazing development... Your first package is on the way!!
I love the socks! Looks like you are on the right track for your christmas knitting!

So sorry about your migranes. I hope they are better soon.

I so understand the difficulty in blogging with secret knits. I'be run up against that so many times this year!
