Back to School

Yes, we are back to school. Texas Universities start early--and we are no exception. In honor of the whole back to school hoo ha, I bought some supplies. ok. They are knitting supplies, which aren't technically for school, but they are helpful!

The Rowan books--Vintage Knitting and the new magazine--came in the mail. There are a few things of interest, but not as much as I had hoped. The Wrap Style book looks great--I'm going through my stash to see if any of the yarn will work. Notice that I also bought Cable Needle Freedom. My goal for the fall is to learn to work with cables. I have a cute purse pattern, but I think I will use the Peace Fleece that I bought (center) to try the little hat in the Cable Needle Freedom book.

And, I picked up the Guernsey yarn that I ordered from my LYS. This is for a pair of socks from Knitting on the Road. More on the stashing later.

The graduate students in the English Department have been busy this past week welcoming new students. Look at the cute party they had for new students! Aren't they great!
