It's Done!

Dear Nikki,

I finished it! My brother's Christmas sweater, of course. It was done by Christmas (actually, it was done by the 23rd, which I think is pretty good) except for a final block to get it the perfect size. It turns out I was right to wait because it was a bit short at the back originally, but I think that it is now pretty awesome. Check it out!

My brother also gave me a pretty awesome gift: an excellent teapot for loose leaf tea, and Addi Turbos! Yay! I will knit so fast now!

The other exciting (or extremely stressful) news is that I'm looking for an apartment out here. I have found the most gorgeous apartment, with views of the water, and more or less within my price range. It isn't huge, but it sure is great! I'm just waiting to hear (hopefully soon!) whether I will get it or not... keep your fingers crossed!

Anyhow, I'd better go eat now. It's 8 pm and I'm hungry! More soon about the new term at school!


p.s. Currently reading: Marley & Me by John Grogan - the story of a goofy, misbehaving, and loving yellow lab - Highly recommended. Just finished: A Letter of Mary by Laurie R. King - I actually liked this one better than the previous two. I will send it back with my mom in February and she will send it back to you. What are you currently reading?

p.p.s. Sorry the picture is so huge (file size). I promise I will soon get a program to shrink it!

Hey Laura,
this sweater is perfect! So comfy and smooth... I am currently curled up with tea and a book in my sweater and am nice and comfy. My co-workers all asked: how you got it to look so good?
Cheers, Malcolm
