Scarf still isn't done
It isn't that I don't want to do the scarf. I just have time management problems. I miss being able to knit for as long as I want. I miss having days with nothing to do besides knit. *sigh*
There's a big project due at school on Tuesday. I've not done nearly as much as I should have on it, which means I'll probably be missing my knitting group on Sunday.
I'm hoping to have the scarf done by the end of the month.
I'm sorry I've been ignoring this blog. I'm sorry I've not been reading as many other knitting blogs as I'd like to have been.

I think Nellie's scarf is almost finished!
I want to do a project on bigger needles, with a few strands of chunky chunky yarn held together.

I had to work the pastry case at school today.
So, I had to work the pastry case at school today. And one woman came up with a snazzy looking scarf on and I asked her if she knitted it. She said no, but a friend did. I got all touchy-feely with her scarf, then remembered "Whoops! I'm supposed to be doing case-business-type-stuff." 'Twas nice, though.

Yesterday, at my knitting group, Trina gave me some yarn!
And here are the boys checking the yarn out:
Some of the girls at school want to learn to knit, so I might have them go buy some needles and let them use some of this.

I've been horribly busy with school
If you want to see what I'm up to, my school blog is Sweet Misa.
I'm still working on my sister's birthday scarf... I showed what I had of it to her, and she seemed to like it a lot. I'm getting some done at school, on the days that I have a break between two of my classes. There are a couple of girls who'd like me to teach them to knit. I'd like to, but I'm not sure if I'm good enough to start showing others how to do it yet.

I got to go to my knitting group yesterday, which makes me happy. I'm still working on my sister's birthday scarf - even though her birthday was on the 23rd of September. If I set aside time every day to work on it, I will have it done within a few days.
And therein lies my problem.
School is way more work than I thought it would be. No, let me rephrase that - school is more work out of class than I thought it would be. I kind of thought that almost everything would be in-class because I assumed most of it would just be hands-on. While I do have the hands on stuff, I've also got a math class, a sanitation class, a baking/desserts theory class, and a cooking theory class.
This has seriously put a damper on everything else I'm doing. I don't have time to knit, make my ATCs, or anything, really. I'm always tired. I can't imagine what it is like for people who work full-time and go to school.
But then again, I think that part of my problem is that I went from having 99% of my time being "free time" to having very little free time. Thusly, my time management skills aren't so great right now. But, I'm starting to get a bit better about it. So, I think that I'll be able to get "back into the swing of things" within a few weeks.

Started school this week
I started pastry school this week, so I've not had much chance to be knitting. I'm sure that I'll be able to do more after I get used to having this schedule.

So, I'm surfing my livejournal communities and I'm looking at the foodporn community (no, not actual porn involving food, be not frightened). I see a bikini bottom - using a pattern that I distinctly recognize from knitty.com.
And I said to myself, "Ho! Self! "Isn't that the pattern from knitty? Isn't this the wrong community? Hmm. You know, that looks like licorice, I wonder what was used. Oh! Wait! That IS licorice!"
You really should go see it.

No Sunday KR Knitters Today
The group went on a field trip yesterday - unfortunately, I couldn't go - so they didn't meetup today. In some ways, it worked out well for me. I start school on Tuesday and this gave me a mostly-rest-day. I've got lots of things to do tomorrow, so having this day to just chill out was really helpful.
I'm still working on the scarf. It is past the intended recipient's birthday, but that's ok - I'll not see her for a couple of weeks (probably) and will most likely end up sending it home with Megan, who is the sister inbetween Nellie (the one who'll be given this scarf) and myself. I'm going to be very busy this week, but I've scheduled in some knitting time. I'm hoping to get the scarf done either this week or the next.

If I don't post much in the next two or three weeks...
... worry not. I've not forgotten my blog.
School is about to start (next Tuesday, the 27th) and it'll take some time for me to adjust to the new schedule. Plus, I've got a bunch of stuff to do before school starts. I'm sure things will be back to normal by the second or third week of school, though.
I'm planning on keeping up with my knitting and posting but... it might get sidetracked a bit. If so, y'all know why.
