the spoils of break

Cherie Sleeves

Having the time to finish the front and back of Cherie and start on the sleeves.

Waking up at 8:30am instead of 6:30am.

Enjoying a few more hours to hang out at your LYS and to talk about exciting new happenings on the horizon!

Staying up late and drinking wine (well I do that normally but sans guilt)

Getting a facial and a neck massage from a local spa. (Ahhh!)

Being able to blog more often and with energy which leads to meeting new people and getting a few surprises. Thanks again Mai!!!

Cherie Button         Central Park Hoodie w Buttons

A trip to NYC with blogless Dana to find buttons for the CPH and Cherie at MJ Trimming (Tender Buttons – I will see you next time!)

Getting time to truly assess the stash and feeling good about going to School Products and walking out without any new yarn.

A round trip to the Jersey shore to find a house to rent for the summer.

Meeting my dad for lunch in the city and walking around 5th Ave. with the handsomest man I know.

Stalking Bloglines 24/7 to see some great looking Le’Slouch’s that make me want to cast on for one like now.

Having the time to make pancakes for me and my BF not once but twice this week.  I’m an excellent flipper.

Getting a call from my mom at 8:30am to help her figure out how to purl and knowing that she’s knitting with the women at her office!

My day job isn’t the most glamorous nor does it pay the big bucks but these are the things that make it the best job in the world. 

Who knows, the way the weather is shaping up tonight maybe I’ll squeeze just One More Day…  I’ll be sleeping with my pajamas on inside out tonight.  ETA: That pajama thing works every time! Woo hoo! i heart snow!

    Can I just say that your post has got me on the edge of my seat in anticipation for spring break? Screw the beach (or a life!), you will find me curled up on my couch in knitting, sleeping, knitting some more heaven! (How obvious is it that I am a crazed, overstressed grad student?)
