Residual school anxiety

It seems funny to be experiencing this now since it's been nearly a month since school ended, but I've noticed lately that I have moments of panic when I see the date and think 'is something due today?' and I just came home from work and thought 'I'm so tired, I don't want to do schoolwork' and then I had the little gigglingly feeling of realization that I have no schoolwork and could play sims2 all night long if I wanted.

In other news, I finished the kick ass skull and crossbones wristband I knit up on those ridiciously tiny 1.75mm needles. I lined it in jersy and sewed on snaps and then pounded on some metal studes and voila! When I get my hands on a digital camera (I won't be purchasing one until I have a better idea of my hours at work this summer) I will get Leboe to pose with it. I was really worried it was going to irritate his skin (hence the jersy) but he wore it all day at work today and so far so good!

Jenn made bran muffins while I was at work, and they were ready right when I came home, and let me ask you... is there anything better than coming home to a house full of yummy smells and eating a piping hot bran muffin with raspberries in it? Is there? I think not! Sisters rule.

I wish Jenn would come bake for me! And you could come too, and we could all knit!

Sisters rule.

They do indeed.

Where is the wristband pattern from? I took the Powerful Wrist Protection pattern from SnB and used the skull pattern from the tattoo baby cardigan in SnBn to make a pair for my friend's 12 year old daughter.

I drew up the pattern on paint and just knitted a swatch before hand, I'll blog more about it when I get a picture of it and get my pattern on this computer (it's on the school computer right now). For a wristband, it took me a frickin long time to finish! My next one I'm knitting on larger needles, and I'm thinking of using my bamboo yarn!

Aw, that is really nice! And your wrist band is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. I kinda want one for at work.
