Not Knitting Related, but...

Dear Laura,
I hope you'll forgive me for the non-knitting-related content, but I had to share.

I did it, Laura, I did it!!

Fibre Festival!

Dear Nikki,

So, guess who's registered for the Gibsons Landing Fibre Arts Festival? That's right! Me! My aunt knew about it, and so she'll be going too. I am registered for the Moebius Knitting class. I am very excited about it. Now I can make even more mathematically pleasing knits! Woot! I think I will order my yarn and needles for it on KnitPicks though... you need two (2!) Addi Turbo 47" circular needles (or possibly one... I find the instructions ever so slightly unclear). Anyhow, I'd way rather get the KnitPicks Options that everyone is raving about as they are a much better budget option!

School is starting to wind down now. Luckily, I have made it through most of the material I was planning to cover, and we have a week to do review. It's weird, but it seems like I've covered so much more in my classes this term than I did last term. Anyhow, I'm really excited for summer! I'm not 100% sure what I'm doing yet, but it will include a trip to Japan, so that's pretty thrilling!

I hope everything is great with you now that your exam is over! Are you stressed about the wedding now?

Shoes and falls

Dear Laura,

Fabulous shoes! They look moderately comfortable, too, which is a major bonus in my life.

I don't think I've shown you my shoes yet. They are the perfect blend of cute and comfy, and since my skirt has a radius of something like one metre, no one will see them anyways.

White eyelet Skechers. They're perfect. And did I mention comfy?!

Your sunset was so pretty that I had to take a pretty picture to send to you. We went hiking on Sunday for an hour, when I just couldn't study another minute. This shot is of Tews Falls, which is in the Dundas Valley Conservation Area, about a 20 minute drive from our house. It's such a gorgeous area - a section of the Bruce Trail, actually. I love going out there.

Sadly, things just aren't that green and lush yet, and the falls are so high (41 m) that it's impossible to get them in one shot. But you get the idea!

The nephew blanket is all knitted up, and now I just need to have a little seam-a-thon to finish it. I have a few hours to spend in the car next week, so my plan is to make Brad drive so that I can seam. I decided that a second blanket was a completely crazy idea, so instead I have started a Honeymoon Cami for myself, which I estimate will be 75% complete at the end of tomorrow's final review lecture, that's right, my last class of medical school. I find the thought that I am actually done med school utterly terrifying. The licensing exam (which I write on Monday, for 8 hours) is equally terrifying, but I am so looking forward to getting it over with that I'm actually excited about it.

You can say it. All this studying has gone to my head and made me a little loopy. I am actually looking forward to the biggest, scariest exam of my life. Because then the godforsaken studying will be OVER!!!! Hooray! Almost there!
