So I frogged the sweater. I finished binding off Tuesday at SnB and tried it on when I got home – too big and shorter than I’d like. So I’m casting on again, this time for the smallest size (I’d switched to the larger b/c of a yarn replacement and gauge difference) and starting over. I managed to salvage one of the sleeves, so it shouldn’t take too long…famous last words 🙂
In other drama, lab work is slowly wrapping up and I’m beginning to realize I need to (gasp) start looking for a job and (gasp!) start writing my thesis….insert panic here 🙂
Luckily, there’s lots of music to take my mind off it. I’ve started playing again, inspired by my friends who are venturing out into the world of open mic. Concerts are coming up too – my favorite band, the Mother Hips, has resumed their touring schedule. They’re making a stop in LA and 2 in San Diego. Trouble is, my ex is going to be there, with his girlfriend. The one who hit on him in front of me when I’d drive to SD to visit him. The one who “isn’t comfortable” with the idea of him driving up to meet me for lunch. The one he complains about on his blog. We were together for 5 years, and it’s been exactly a year since he broke up with me. Obviously, it’s going to take some time. Before I consider him a friend again.
