You Would Think...

I've spent two days in an in person conference at work.  There should have been tons of knitting time. There wasn't and instead what down time I had was spent working with a research partner on an impending deadline and editing slides/lecture for class this week.

Summer is going to be so slothful -- no full for-credit courses to be taught. It might actually feel like a holiday.

The lace is neglected. The brioche still yarn.  And it's mid-March. I know Loopy Academy will be a haul to the finish but I do wish Past-Me had chosen slightly easier/shorter projects. An 800 yard shawl and a fingering weight adult size sweater? Riiiiiigt. Uh huh.
