While it seems I have had no time at all to knit or do any type of craft, I discovered last night I was on the last section!
My last class was yesterday and I got their last project graded after class yesterday (well, after a comps defense, and a student meeting where I agreed to chair yet another PhD student). It wasn't a 'big' project--these are the masters students in the program I run and they take a 'full year' class that I teach in fall and spring and my colleague Deb teaches in Winter. So this last project was a 'rough draft' of a podcast that they'll work on in Winter term. I still have some final grades to calculate and put into the magic grade program. Then I have to turn my attention to finalizing the syllabus and readings for my class winter term. I'd like to get it all done so I can take some time off over Christmas break.
I finished The Starless Sea and now no other book is worth reading.
The toe is getting better quickly--I'm wearing my house clogs today which I couldn't do on Sunday, so it is quickly on the mend. Maybe it isn't broken, maybe just a sprain? I'm just very relieved that it seems to be resolving itself so quickly.
I need to clean up the yarn room and figure out what I want to knit next. I saw a pattern I liked and went to look for the yarn but couldn't find it, and now i seem to remember it is in the "wip pile" as part of a wip I didn't finish. If I do find it, maybe I'll frog the wip and use it for Almina? I also want to knit another hood. Anyway, I'm kind of looking forward to calming some of that chaos.
