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.
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!
