happy may day!

at my college, may day is a big day—the day marking the end of the quarter, with exams beginning the day after may day, and also celebrating the end of the academic year. although i wasn’t a big participent in the traditional may day events at bryn mawr, i loved that it was such a huge deal—and yes, it was, unlike any other school i knew of.

the credit card is the devil’s helpmate

yes, finally i’ve succumbed to the obligatory ‘i’m spending too much money on yarn’ post—i can’t help it. someone posted on a knitting listserv that this one online store (www.bopeepswoolshop.com) was having a crazy 50% sale on wool. i saw wool, didn’t want wool, but what i did see instead was rowan’s summer tweed in two gorgeous colors. for only $4.50 a skein! gasp.

this is not a knitting blog

not that there’s anything wrong with a knitting blog, just that this isn’t one of them. i started this whole thing about two years and a half years ago in an attempt to learn html, calm my parents about what i was doing with my life (which is now funny cause they never ever look at this site, ay), and have a place to store links and such. in the past nine months, i’ve been moving more and more towards primarily knitting content, which is great since i really enoy knitting a lot, more than i thought i ever would, but sometimes i feel like if i don’t post about knitting, i’m letting people down, or something like that. there’s this pressure that builds up around having a blog, or even a web site at all, that is weird and also totally unexpected.
