School’s out FOREVER!

At the end of this week I GRADUATE!  I finished my Ph.D. in Counselor Education and school is out for me FOREVER.  I can say that with confidence.  To celebrate, I’m going to have a little out of school sale from now until Sunday, just for the heck of it.  I realized that I don’t have a lot of summer patterns (and might have to remedy that this summer), but if there’s something you’ve been eyeing on my pattern page, you can get it for 30% off with the code SCHOOLSOUT from now until Sunday at midnight.  Enjoy!

IMG_20140506_075530I was excited to learn the Firefly Seeker top I made for Z will still fit her this year.  Hooray for positive ease in kiddo patterns!

Cocktail(Dress) is soooooo close to being done.  I have the i-cord bind off on one sleeve and the second sleeve cap to finish.  I’m laughing at myself for thinking that I was going to finish it in time to wear for the wedding I attended last Saturday.  Oh, optimism.  I do believe I can at least be finished with the knitting and blocking in time to cast on for Shannon’s Tops, Tees, and Tanks KAL that starts tomorrow.  First up is Saco Stripes.  This KAL will coincide with me taking a month off before starting a new job, so I will get in lots of knitting time!

  1. Congratulations! What an amazing achievement! That firefly seeker is so cute, I know a toddler that would look fantastic in it and it looks like you have sizes that are a little older too, since I’m not sure I’ll be able to start it until the summer. It’s cute to see Z wearing it now after your initial pattern photos — just like you said, it transitions well!

  2. congratulations on your exam!
    And such a lovely knitting 😀 I always get so impressed of your crafts! It’s lovely!

  3. So exciting! A month-long break is an excellent reward for such a fantastic accomplishment. I regret not taking time off after my masters – giving yourself a break is so important. I can’t wait to see all the knitting you treat yourself to 🙂

  4. Congratulations!! I also have a degree in counseling (just an MA though!) and am also mad about knitting:) Treat yourself to some special projects this summer!!
