Here we go!

So, I've pulled my first knitting all-nighter. Yay me. I had to finish the dishcloths for my profs before class today. All weekend I was trading between knitting/designing the dishcloths and preparing for my final presentations/examinations. But, in the end, all went off practically hitchlessly. Everyone loved the cloths, and my one prof even said it was too pretty to use and he pinned it up on his wall in his office. My dance solo that I choreographed went fabulously and I felt great after I was done, which doesn't happen very often, being the prefectionist/OCDer that I am. My poem went alright, even though I didn't put as much work into it as I should've. Too much time knitting and dancing I suppose. So now the Christmas knitting begins in TRUE force. Not that I haven't been knitting like crazy already for two months, but now is when the marathon starts. I'll post some pics later of my two FOs from today (the cloths) and also the pattern for the Om cloth. Feel free to use the pattern as you please. I hope everyone is having a good Monday and happy knitting, as usual.

P.S. My knitting callous is killing me. I literally have knit for at least 10 hours in the last 24. Yikes!

Oy, I'm very sorry about how it says "feel free to use the pattern to come as you please". I really don't think I wrote that and I think blogger has a dirty mind because it won't let me edit it out. I've tried twice and republished like ten times. Ooohh, I'm blushing....

ahahahahahahahahahahahahahah!!!!! you are too funny. you sound like you've got tons of fun classes.
i wish i could knit for ten hours in a day! i'm lucky if i get an hour, and even still, i squander it doing non-knitting things. oh well...
i don't think i can be cured of my love for snow. i'd rather be freezing than sweating. but i guess living on an island isn't so bad...

Apparently my post finally fixed itself so it's not longer pornish. Whoopee.

Haha! I didn't know Blogger's mind was in the gutter that bad. ;-) Oh my goodness, you are hardcore, pulling a knitting all-nighter! But it must've been awesome to have your work so appreciated. Looking forward to seeing the pics and the patterns, especially the Om. Glad to hear all your finals went well...yikes! only 19 days till Christmas!! Take care of that knitting callous, though...you don't want it to turn into another appendage or something! ;-)

A knitting all-nighter and a knitter's callous? Wow, you are hooked now (oh no, wait, hooks are for crochet!!). I'm glad everyone loved their gifts and that the finals all went well. Woo hoo!!!
