I'm a bad blogger

So I told myself that now that I was in the swing of things at school, I'd try to blog more.

Apparently 6 courses and 10 hours a week in the coffee shop keeps me pretty busy.

I have been knitting, though not as much as when I'm home. I'm currently working on several projects, which is kind of a first for me. No pictures now, because I should be working on the lab report, and it's dark outside, so pictures later.

Project 1. Trellis Scarf from Vogue Knitting, progress as of late, none. This guy is sitting on my dresser looking at me funny.

Project 2. Textured Baby Blanket in Pool from Vogue Knitting On the Go, Baby Blankets 2. I'm just about through my second ball on this. I only have to frog once, and it's going much better now.

Project 3. My "Class" Sock. Fifth sock ever knit, done from the toe up (cause I'm an idiot and didn't buy enough of the yarn, so, they will be short socks). These are done with Lorna's Laces Shepard Sock in Desert Flower and I pretty well only work on them in class. They are my backpack knitting project, small and very portable. I'm about 5 inches in on them and only worked the same toe about 3 times. Finally got it the way I like it though!

Project 4. Yoga Bag from Inspired Cables in All Hemp 6 (I think) in Dusty Rose. Try as I might I just couldn't get stitch gauge on this guy. I was not about to go down a 4th needle size only to see the same results. It's about a third of a pattern repeat in and looking pretty good!

That's all, I promise pictures later!!
