Brain exhaustion

I made it through my dissertation proposal! I can begin my somewhat altered study. Phew. Thank goodness. My brain is tired and I’d like to send it on vacation for a little while. Stockinette usually helps with this, so I think a few rows of that might do the trick.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, my mom’s socks were patiently waiting for a photo moment.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS! Can you have a little holiday for now until you start your research and the writing? The socks are simply beautiful, really, really nice. πŸ˜€

    • I think my brain is on a slight holiday, whether I like it or not. I will have to wait on the Institutional Review Board for approval before I can begin my study, so that’s a bit of a break at least.

  2. I have got a serious case of yarn envy πŸ˜› those socks are pretty sweet, this is the year that graduating to socks is on my knit bucket list, moving up from baby blankets and washclothes, whoohooo πŸ™‚

  3. Wonderful to see this yarn knitted up – I visited Brisbane last week and bought 4 balls of this yarn from Tangled Yarns – couldn’t resist their gorgeous colourways. I didn’t see this one, otherwise it would have been 5!
