Little tip: If you want to show off new socks, resist the urge to wear them immediately and wash them before photographing. They look weird when you do that and not amount of faux-artistic photo-styling will make them look less lumpy. :-)
My new rule for non-reading, non-eating time is that I have to keep my hands busy so I can get away with keeping up on a small handful of tv shows and movies without feeling like I'm wasting time. I started these way back in August. At the time, I had just finished my chunky sweaters and moving from 10mm needles to 2.5mm needles almost induced second sock syndrome before the first was even finished. It was painfully slow to me. I quickly began the second and proceeded to try that "two socks on one long circular" process. Fiddly and seems to take a long time but I have two finished socks that are exactly the same size. Phew!
I haven't been following my iFriends as closely as usual - I only seem to get blog time about once a week. I am starting to manage my time better and have even polished off a few books. Thanks for all the encouragement! Some of my classes are fantastic; some... uhmmmm... I will spare you the ranting. I have found myself on the general council for the student society, joined a number of committees, and with a school friend had a fantastic lightsaber fight with our phones. I owe a few emails, and they are coming up. Right after my midterm. :-)
