So today, we had the final meeting of our campus charity knitting group. While I’m happy to be moving on, it was very bittersweet, since I know I won’t see most of these girls again (or at least for a while) after graduation. Bree, our president, made us CDs of the group playlist we hear every week at the meetings, and she gave me a little something special.
This isn’t the best picture (I took it with my phone), but it’s Bree’s hand-dyed sock yarn. It was so sweet of her to give to me, and it totally fits with my favorite colors! I’m going to knit some special socks with the yarn, and it will always remind me of the cool kids from the Vassar knitting group.
There’s good chance that the next time I post on here, I will be a college graduate. So yay for me and the rest of the class of ’11! We did it!
So…I’m almost done with college I literally have a week and a half left. It’s pretty exciting. In order to get through finals week, I have been doing a lot of knitting and crocheting. First, I finished my Giant Granny Square Blanket, which I don’t have a picture of because I haven’t blocked it yet, and it’s at home. After that, I finished this charity blanket which I’ve been working on for years. It’s four mitered squares, and I knit it in one piece. It was pretty exciting to finally finish it and give it to a local charity last week!
Then I finished my Crocheted Ripple Blanket, which I’ve been working on for about a year to use up my sock yarn scraps (I doubled them and used a large crochet hook…I’m not sure which size because it doesn’t say it, but I’m thinking M or N). I was going to donate it along with the other blanket, but then my friend Leslie saw it and loved it, so I’m giving it to her as a graduation gift.
I of course have many other blankets I’m working on, but it’s good to get these particular ones out of my hands and into other people’s to keep them warm! It’s kind of silly that I finished them so close to summer, but at least they will be ready for use in the winter.
And on a final note, happy graduation to MEEEE! Here’s to the end of my education!
