I started a Photography class on Tuesdays. I have always loved taking pictures and with blogging have really made an effort to take more pictures to share. The amazing thing is that with a lot of luck I have taken some really visually astounding and interesting pictures. But I want to take them all of the time, so I decided to take the class to learn about photography and learn my new camera.

In my Grad class on Wednesday, I found out that my presentation is due on 4/18/2012 and not 4/25/2012 like I thought. (Cue the sad trombone music) At least I didn't freak out, I will get it done this weekend and then work on my paper that is due on 4/25/2012.
On Wednesday, the Pens lost to the Flyers 3-4 in overtime. I don't think the loss would sting as bad but they Pens were up 3-0 in the first period and just didn't show up for the remaining 2 and overtime. There is another game tonight, so hopefully they bounced back. I do want to mention that I think our goal tender, #29 Marc-Andre Fluery played a really good game and that score could have been a lot worse if he wasn't on top of his game.

There is another game tonight, which means it's a great day for hockey!
Thursday, I got my Knit Picks order! I ordered a Yarn Swift and Ball Winder, plus a scarf pattern called Richmond Lace Infinity Scarf and Knit Picks Chroma Fingering in Azalea . I was so excited that I tested out the swift and winder last night and it is really addicting.
I also made a large purchase from Deramores. I bought 8 balls of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran for a blanket I want to make. I chose some muted blues, pinks and purples for white centered granny squares. I am basing my blanket off of the one made by Jacquie at Bunny Mummy.
|Here is one of the colors for the blanket that I already bought|
I also got 23 skeins of Stylecraft Special DK for some unknown project. I admit to lusting after the yarn in all of Lucy at Attic24 so I figured why not get some and I can figure out the details later. I am thinking of a ripple but it might just end up with more white centered squares like above.
Lastly, today I got the rest of the Lion Brand Cotton Ease from Joann Fabrics online store for the Lego Blanket. They had a sale and free shipping so that is one less thing on my to do list. I started the green blocks last night and they turned out great. The colors are really looking good together and I should have taken a picture but I didn't. Sorry. But, you will see them on Wednesday!
Well, that is all for now. I plan on working on my paper this weekend but I also plan to get some reading done for pleasure. I have neglected my TBR pile and it's ready to topple over on top of me. I will let you know what I think of those books.
