Thesis and knitting update

I will not be allowed to defend my thesis this Tuesday.
Though according to my professor it was an absolute pleasure to read, it did not live up to its potential and needed more depth. Gah.

Did I despair or "spend all my yarn money" as honey suggested? (What yarn money?)
Hell no! With the right feedback -that I should've gotten in August to begin with, but enough about that- I'll turn this thing into a kickass piece of work.
Definitive graduation date: February 15, 2006.
(Flowers, chocolate, tequila and lots of yarn are still welcome at my studio apartment here in Utrecht.)

In knitting news: My latest obsession is Knitty's Clapotis. (pron. Cla-po-teeeeeeeeeh.) Pattern here.

I just dropped my first stitch and it's looking bitchin'! (Love that word.)
The yarn is a gorgeous variegated warm red by Adriafil that I got at Lambert de Groot's booth at KreaDoe.

Unfortunately, my camera will no longer be recognized by my computer; Kodak Imaging is "eating poop", as Dave would so eloquently state it, so no pics yet.
I may be getting a digicam as a late birthday present from my folks... Keep y'r fingers crossed! ;)

sorry about your thesis... but I know you'll make it! Just keep up the good work.

Funny enough, earlier today I decided to restart on Clapotis using Noro Silk Garden. I have got three skeins now, enough for a mini version of Clapotis.

Have a nice weekend

Argh, jammer van de vertraging! Denk je er bijna te zijn...
Clapotis is big fun. Ik heb er drie gebreid en als het nog es moet doe ik dat zingend.

I'm so sorry to hear that they're not letting you defend your thesis after all you hard work! That stinks!

And you'll love Clapotis. I'm working on my second one for my mom in Lion and Lamb Tuscany. So pretty and soft.

Goh wat stom met dat uitstel van je afstuderen wegens non-communicatie van je communicatie-prof...

Nou, voordeel is: des te meer tijd voor het verdiepen van je stuk (wordt dus baanbrekend, toch?;-) ), meer breien enzo, en ja, natuurlijk een leuke baan vinden. Nog wat gehoord van de cnv?

Wat jammer dat je nu toch nog niet klaar bent. Ga je maar lekker verdiepen, in klapotiiieee en andere dingen. En inderdaad, vergeet niet intussen genoeg chocolade te eten!
