Madness

It's 9:26 pm on the last night I am supposed to study for the LSAT (they say - and this was highly reenforced by my Kaplan expert - that you shouldn't study the night before because you could freak yourself out and have a full meltdown - probably very similar to the one that I had last night, complete with tears, tantrums, and swearing) and I just now got home from the Knit Salon. I told myself that I was only going to go for an hour...or an hour and a half...well, two tops. Oops. But, again I had a great time and truly cherish the company of knitters.

This week has been a little tough, but it's almost over, and I have a packed weekend coming up with mostly fun things to do minus that pesky standardized test Saturday morning. One thing that was a bright spot in the week was that I got this on Tuesday:

What makes this Noro special, besides coming during the middle of a yarn diet - it doesn't count because I paid for it back in December, before the diet began - is that it came straight from Japan :-) I was able to get them for about $6 a piece (which included the shipping) because a friend from work was in Japan over Christmas. This is colorway 40 and this picture doesn't do the colors of this yarn justice. I was planning on taking better pictures before posting, but I just couldn't wait! I have 6 balls so I want to find a good project for this yarn. I know they make great bags, but I think I have enough to do something wearable. We shall see...

And since there hasn't been a Jenny picture in a while, this is what I come home to every day:

B always wraps her up "like a taco" with the pink kitties facing her before he leaves for the day and she is usually still wrapped up when I get home. She waits for me to put my stuff down and then come over and give her a belly rub :-) I think it may be one of her favorite times of the day as well as mine.

Good luck on the LSAT!

That's some lovely Noro. Maybe a wrap?? Six balls of Noro is still only about 600 yds, alas...

Cute Jenny taco pic!

I'll be thinking of you tomorrow - just don't over think things....(like I EVEN remember taking the LSAT). You'll do fine! Go to bed early tonight, and let Jenny sleep in the big bed. Eat some Wheaties for breakfast, have a Starbucks and go........

The LSAT? I had no idea you were headed down the path to law. (It's not too late to turn back!) I'm sure that you'll score very well, and I honestly think it's a good thing to give yourself a study break. Go gettem'!
