The End is in Sight

Yes, it is almost the end of the semester. Yesterday was the last day of classes. Now the final push begins. The problem with the end of the semester is that it brings out the absolute worst in students and faculty. People who look normal the rest of the semester turn into lunatics in the final weeks. You have to take the storm shelter mentality--keep you head down and wait until it passes. Ahem.

Speaking of December-ness, my birthday is almost here! On the 12th I will officially hit that age where I will be classified as an "increased risk" pregnancy if we have another baby. Just got to love that... My Mom gave me the yarn for the gorgeous Sursa shaw that I finished this weekend. And, yesterday, I received a fun giftie from my MIL,Janet. She sent this gorgeous necklace (it looks lovely with Klara):

In the same package was this wonderful silver Baa Baa Black sheep pin:

A nice birthday gift that made my crummy day yesterday much better!

I feel much better about my knitting as well. I frogged and frogged two projects--the stupid hat that was incorrectly gauged and the stupid knitter mistake colinette jacket. Both are restarted, but the Colinette goes faster, so here's a picture:
