What a week! Pitt is technically in Finals but I just have a paper to submit before Friday at 6 pm. The paper is complete just with my group for a final review. That out of the way, I am back to my regular schedule and it's a little weird. I really have lost track of what day it is because I'm not leaving for class on Monday and Wednesday.
I do want to apologize for not responding to comments this past week. Something is wrong with the embedded comments and I cannot reply. When I started my blog I promised myself that I would respond to every comment. I really appreciate your insights and reminds me that there are people out there reading this. :)
In another bit of news, this one's a big one. I am having Gastric Bypass Surgery on December 24th. I have kept things quiet while I was prepping and telling friends and family. Now that it's so close I am excited but anxious about how rapidly it's approaching. Please keep me in your thoughts. With that said, I can't wait to post pictures of my weight loss. I have lost 25 lbs in 2 months in preparation for the surgery. My doctor wants me to lose 30 total and it's been a bit of a challenge.
Rigging Up the Color Affection
This is coming along nicely. I have 8 of 12 stripes complete with only 4 more to go. This section has flown. I am also at the point where the stripes are mixing colors. I like it but it took a while to get used too. Its a little more muddled than the solid color stripes. Anyway, can't wait to get it done.
Pittsburgh Panther Hat
This is a hat for my bestie's guy. Like me he went to the University of Pittsburgh so I decided to make a Blue and Gold hat. I looked for color work that was Pitt inspired but couldn't find anything so I settled on this pattern. It was originally Steeler Black and Gold but the blue looks so nice. Since it lacks any logo, it can be worn anywhere. I made a boo boo and misread the instructions. You're supposed to knit plain for 4 inches before the pattern and i knit 2 inches. Sadly this is a but of a blessing because I was low on the navy blue so the hat will be predominately gold.
So that's all for this week.
