Graduation was fantastic! I ended up graduating with high honors and a few other awards, which was the perfect way to end my undergraduate experience. Jane Lynch was a great speaker and very funny, although she was nothing like the characters she typically plays.
Right after I snagged my diploma, I jumped into the truck with my dad and all of my moving boxes, and headed off to North Carolina!
Eleven hours later we arrived and shortly after that I found the perfect apartment that even has a little garden (which I'm planning to fill with lavender)! It is such a wonderful feeling to have everything falling into place and I'm excited to move there in the Fall.
I'm now in upstate New York for my sister's graduation (12 hour drive back up) and have been knitting away any chance I get on my super womanly strength something-or-another sweater.
As I initially suspected, it is almost impossible to be sad while knitting with Madelinetosh. Everywhere I go I have people comment on how beautiful this yarn is.
For the pattern, I chose Ambrosia, a very pretty, fitted cardigan, with some nice cabling along the front. The best part about this pattern is that there is no seaming! I'm thinking that because I am using Merino wool instead of cotton, that I might make the sleeves a little longer.
The most disappointing thing about this trip is that no matter how hard I try, I have been unable to visit a single yarn store! Hopefully I'll have better news along that front in a few days.
