The yarn

for the most wonderful sweater from Poetry in Stitches has arrived from Denmark. I hope I will be able to finish it while I am in grad school for the next 4 - 6 years...

Oh, and about TA-ing... didn't happen. Enrollment, too low!

The new semester

is about to start and in my new capacity as a TA I will now teach German 101 instead of being an adjunct for English 101. We shall see how that goes

about not knitting...

I just can't do without. So I had to start a new project while I wait for the yarn shipment from Denmark. I seem to have figured that my shoulder got injured not from the knitting motion, but from the jerk I make, when I pull more thread from the center of the ball. So I have been trying to avoid this and if nothing else, the pain has not become worse.

This mystery project is from a gathering of lace with a relatively thick Junghans yarn. While it is a stole pattern, it will become more like a lap throw, I think. But nothing is decided and we will see how it turns out.

and just because

I can't knit right now, I had to wet my appetite and salivate over this:

I just tried to order the yarn for one of the sweaters from Denmark, (actually 40 dollars cheaper than the American supplier) but something went wrong and I have to wait for an answer to my email.

Konfuzius says

woman with tendinitis in shoulder shall avoid knitting needles like the plague...
