Ah, the spring... well break anyway.

I'm officially on Spring break, and it's actually going to be a break too! I'm not going anywhere, don't really have any homework, and I don't have any major projects due when I get back. It's going to be so nice. My friend Jill is coming to visit during the first half of break and then Jason is going to visit the second half! I'm spending this weekend cleaning like mad trying to make up for the lack of cleaning that has been going on around here since last semester! I just sorted the laundry and I have something like 10 loads worth. I've only been doing necessary loads this semester, so it will be nice to have everything clean and put away.

I've been knitting like a fiend again and finished another pair of socks this past week.
I also finished and turned in my tapestry for my weaving class on Thursday. It's inspired by the Anatolian weaving tradition. It's a "tree of life" motif.
It hasn't been blocked so its a little wonky. I'll fix it when I get it back.

Oh yeah, so the socks pictured above, they are this week's craft leftover pattern, you should go check it out. They knit up pretty quick and just about any fingering weight yarn can be used.

So goals for this break:
1. Clean clean clean
2. Learn how to silk screen
3. Dye more yarn (as soon as I get it, I honestly thought it would have been here by today)
4. Sleep sleep sleep
5. Finish some commissions I haven't had time for.
6. Read read read
7. Get rid of everything that I'm not crazy about that is taking up space in my apartment

I'll check back with you at the end of break and let you know how it's gone. In fact, I think I'm going to take a week off blogging, I'll post lots of pictures next weekend. If I do get that yarn, and it does get dyed before then, I will post an update to let you know that it's going in the shop.

Have a great week!
