Here's my office, and my office mate, for today.
Not much news here, as I'm using the holiday break to catch up on a lot of writing projects and prep for class next term. We are on quarters, and I have a new prep next term and then ANOTHER new prep Spring term so I have to get on top of stuff fairly quickly. Plus, the book revisions (I'm trying to do a little every day) and manuscript deadlines (March!) that I"m trying to work on a bit at a time.
PLUS I have my 'post tenure review' (the first one I've ever had, and I've been tenured for (yikes) 17 years) and that just means putting a bunch of stuff together and writing a document that makes sense of it all. Not fun.
But on the fun news, I have one Milet done:
The pattern as written was way to big for my hand, so I skipped some of the 'rice' in the middle. It does need blocking (and that apparently is the story of my life) but I'll wait until I finish the second one. I like this a lot.
Yesterday I finished this mitten, finished one of Tim's gifts, and started on a fair isle hat using Koigu. I am not sure the colors I picked are going to work that well but I'll keep at it and we'll see. Pictures when there is something to see.
The plan today, once I finish working, is to make toffee and maybe those chocolate cookies that crack. I think it is going to be quite the Powdered Sugar Christmas.
