Yeah, Monday morning while I was tending to my sick man, I felt great. I went to work that afternoon and I felt like I was carrying a ton of bricks. I requested to be able to go home early that night and my boyfriend nursed me back to health (isn't he sweet, even though I know feel like a bitch for writing the last post). Anyway, I'm feeling alot better, so much so that I don't even mind that the weather looks like this:

I told you I had some knitting I wanted to share with you:
I finished the front of my "Spring Vest" creation. The idea has come from my head so I believe this is an original pattern. I've written down good notes and I believe once I'm done, I just need to figure out how to write this pattern for more than one size (this vest is 34 inches around the bust) so that I can share this with you guys. The only thing I did not create from scratch is the stitch pattern, which I got from this book. I hope to finish this by April 13, 2007. That's when I shall be presenting my research at Purdue University. And if I don't get it done by then, it won't bother me. I've enjoyed designing and knitting this vest.
I felt that one picture wasn't enough. The second Monkey sock right after the heel has been turned and all the stitches have been picked up for the gusset. I have to admit that I'm enjoying knitting these socks more than these socks:
I think it's because Monkey is for me and Pomatamus is for a friend. I'm selfish like that.
It's pretty early in the morning here in Michigan, so I have to continue my homework crusade (I call it that because I have to fight my impulses to procrastinate).
