A crafty week

So in addition to craftnite, I generally had a really crafty week!

Sunday: I used some of the plastic made from last week's craftnite to make a much-needed checkbook.Monday: I got to play around with different art media in Art Therapy class.

Tuesday: I got my first knitting callus!!! It's on my left pointer finger, where I push the right needle through the stitch. It's tiny now, but I have high hopes.Friday and Saturday: I picked up some new Spring knitting and crochet magazines and a Vogue book. The cover design on the one in the bottom left corner is by Amy! Yay! Looks like a good sweater vest for work, now that I'm all into work clothes.Friday: I rearranged my apartment last night, and with inspiration from Heidi, separated my books my color--for ARTISTIC effect, NOT because I have OCD (when my mom and brother saw it, they assumed the latter and giggled)Saturday (today): Mom provided transportation and nutritional replenishment on my crafting errands. We went to AC Moore for oil and chalk pastels for an Art Therapy class project, and I also picked up some quilting fabric squares for crochet hook holders that I can make now that I fixed my sewing machine. Then later we went to A Tangled Skein for some more Brown Sheep for my Mancala board. I also picked up the new Interweave Knits (love it! see above pic), Ann Budd's Knitter's Yarn Requirement Guide, a set of US 1.5 sock DPNS, and...CONFUSION. My mom and I were both drawn to this yarn, so I came with a win-win solution. Since she is more let's say...financially established...than I (hey, I'm a student), I suggested that I make her something with it. So that way I'll still get to work with it. Then in a few months maybe I'll get some of my own.

Speaking of that...I want to share a non-knitting-adventure item: I did something scary/exciting this week. I began the process of getting my social work license. I very well could be a licensed generalist social worker adult before the end of the semester. Eeeeek! Yet, awesome. :-)

Happy Knitting!

p.s. I apologize for my blurry camera. It's old. I need a new one. It's on my birthday list! ;-) ;-)

p.p.s . I just got my other cat from my mom's house, so now both are living with me. Isn't Shadow cute? Sometimes he sits like this, with his legs stretched out to the back. :-)

I LOVE how the cubes turned out! Great "Confusion" as well. I'd love to see it Tuesday.
