Oh, the joys of college!

I am clearly not a very on-top-of-things blogger, but I do have a pretty good excuse: COLLEGE! Sophomore year has been crazy busy, but in a good way, and with a lot of fun in between the mounds of work.
Unfortunately, I have very little time to knit; I spend my time at our knitting club making squares for Warm Up America, and I catch maybe 20 minutes a day during an episode of Arrested Development on DVD - when I have time.

Somehow, though, progess has been made:
These are my finished Cafe Curtains socks, in knitpicks sock memories. I really like the colors, and they are very comfy!
I've also made progress on Orangina: the front and the back are both done, I just have to do about 6 more inches of ribbing then seam it. Maybe it'll be done by the spring? I exaggerate, but not by much!And I started a scarf for a friend in our school's colors (roughly); it's 1 by 1 ribbing. I think I deserve a good friend award for this one! It's in Lion Wool and Paton's Classic Merino.And, because I'm proud of myself, here's how much stash I brought to college:


Yep, that's it! Just a little sock yarn, a little for a start on Sunrise Circle (once that scarf is done!) and the MS3, which I optimistically hope to finish by the time I graduate.
Irony of ironies, my fall break is ONE WEEKEND before Rhinebeck. (P.S.: I live in Rhinebeck.) I can't justify going home two weekends in a row, what with work and stage managing and editing a newsletter for Amnesty International, etc. Oy vey. It would be fun, but it's probably good that I'm not going: I absolutely don't need any more yarn, and I definitely don't have money to spend (especially if I want to go abroad!).
Maybe I should just resort to knitting in class instead of taking notes. Any thoughts?

Thanks again for supporting the walk!

Hi Frenchy!
I must say, ripping is much better than tossing. I have never had that happen before. I agree with you on the quality of yarn. I used affordable yarn when the boys were babes because they grew into and out of clothes so quickly.
How do you like 'Knit Picks' yarn? I like the prices but worried about the quality. What is MS3? Will you be in town for the 'Sheep and Wool Festival'? I am buying a weekend pass! The socks in Cafe Curtain look WONDERFUL! For a college student, you do just fine!!
