Wonderful! He looks smashing!

I'm perfectly aware of what is required at the university level, I did graduate from one quite a few years ago, lol.  I just think it would be nice to speak to a student rather then just making them leave a class. As you say, they are paying a lot of money for that class.

Right, but education is not a consumer situation, i.e., the customer is not always right. I think Alli-Lucy's totally within her rights, and referring someone to student services is exactly what she should do if challenged.

A lot of people have commented in this thread and other public-knitting threads (knitting in school, knitting in church, etc.) about how other people might find the knitting distracting, or see it as disrespectful (and then wonder why they can't get away with inappropriate behavior). I'm sympathetic to your plight because I'm the same way, but I as restless as I am, I've always viewed it as my problem.

Thanks! Cinnamon teal and Madei, the yarn is from Scout's Swag. She is an awesome chick. We used to go to the same SNB and her eye for color is amazing. The colorway is called Orchids.

Thanks, guys!
Riki--it's definitely cold enough! I don't know how I managed to get a picture in front of the only green leaves left...
Well, that one big leaf to the left almost look like a rubber tree so I thought maybe you were in the tropical parts somewhere, hah!

Nope, I think it's an elm. But you have a good eye! I'm glad to be back up north where all my knits go to good use.

That is really cute! I like the color combo. It's amazing how quickly you get stuff done when you actually pick it up and work on it, isn't it?

So far this fall I have made Anemoi mittens and Endpaper mitts. I am now offically obsessed with mittens. I started to make Elliphantom's Herringbone mittens (ravelink) but I read the chart, screwed up, and frogged. So while I'm regrouping from that, I made these, based on the herringbone pattern but with a smaller stitch count to account for fair isle/non-fair isle gauge differences.

I started these about 24 hours ago. They're blocking now.

Hey, this mitten smells funny...

I made a few errors, but that just adds characteristic. I was more confident on the second mitten so it's a lot tighter than the first, but I love how they turned out.

Gotta love a mitten with personality.
My first fair isle mittens, I knit a lot looser on the second one! How funny.
