I was wearing my pretty-purple-cable sweater on Thursday. And it got approved by my SnB friends. Happy!
Once I sat down, heard the mailman story, got my food, ate it, then I took out my Hemlock Ring Blanket and tried to work on it. And then I was like "oh crap! I forgot to bring my pattern." Of course, there were like 10 people around me yelled "AGAIN?" in harmony. YES, again, it's the third time I have done it. Since the next couple rows of the blanket are knit rows(there are 10000 stitches in one row), I had something to do for the most of the time I was there. Then I was trying to work on something else, but of course, I forgot to print out the pattern. Oh well. I had fun though on Thursday night.
Speaking of Thursday night, I supposed to have a Dynamics class(a 300 level class). The story started on the first day I went to UNH. I took Dynamics at Gateway already, but somehow, the people in UNH used that credits to waive a stupid Introduction to Engineering class(a 100 level class). So, I had to take Dynamics again at the first semester in UNH. I went to the class, heard the syllabus, and told Professor S. that I have known all the material he was going to teach since I learned that from Gateway. He asked me to take the homework and exams from the Gateway class to show him. I did, and he said I did pretty well, asked me to drop the dynamics class and take Vibration instead. Also said, next time when he teaches the dynamics class again, I would only have to sign up, I didn't need to sit in the class nor take any exams, but I would still get an A. Sounds like a good deal to me. Until the end of last semester, I found out that Prof. S. was going to teach that class again, so I signed up right away. Since I am very close to graduating, I don't have many classes let to take, so this semester I only have 13 credits. But a week before the semester started, I found that Prof. S has changed his mind, and not teaching that class anymore. I totally freaked out because I need that class to stay full time. Since I do need Dynamics to fill my academic worksheet, so I had no choice but to go to the Thursday night Dynamics class. I went, and the class got canceled, because I was the only one who signed up that class. I am screwed!! I have called the financial aid, they said if I switched from full time student to part time, I would lose 2 scholarships and and lower my federal student loan! I can't afford to do that. Now I have figure something else to stay as a full time. Good luck to me!!
Since I want to knit as much as I can before I got really busy in school(which could be next week), I have been knitting as much as I can. I finished my sweater last Friday(the 25th), I casted on the Hemlock Ring Blanket on Saturday(the 26th), and it has been blocking since last night(Feb 2nd). I like the pattern a lot, it's pretty easy, but the blind off took FOREVER!!!! Let me give you a preview of the blanket. I will show more pictures once I finish blocking it.
