Finals Week


Sailboat Sweater
Originally uploaded by savtadotty.
At many colleges and universities, it's finals week. This brings back long-ago memories of the stress I used to experience, thinking I would never be able to pass my exams. Then I would say to myself, "Don't be so melodramatic: when you're old and a grandmother, sitting in your rocking chair, knitting sweaters for your grandchildren, you won't even remember this exam."

Well, the rocking chair is at elswhere's house, and this sweater is for my friend's new grandson, but I was right in principle: I don't remember the exams. And anyhow, I did pass enough of them to graduate.

Good luck, all you students, don't get too stressed.

Could you come here for a week or two and knit sweaters while rocking and tell everyone that it's going to be okay? Because they don't believe me.

And that sweater? precious.

Now you're a knitting blog too?! Wow. Cool.

Good advice, and a cute sweater.

You can tell I'm really into this grandma thing: knitting, baking pies, doling out unrequested advice. What could be better?

I love the sweater--I just joined a stitch and bitch group. I know how to crochet but need to learn to knit so I can make nice sweaters too. Come on over to visit--I have a rocking chair, I make good cookies and you can teach me how to knit!

Thanks for the invite, Daphna. If you lived in Tel Aviv I'd be over right away. Cookies...yum. If you are making an expedition to City That Never Sleeps, let me know, and I'll give a Knitting Consultation (e.g., how to make argyle socks, how do cables, how to rip and start over with good cheer).
