YOP Update May 13th

So I sort of feel off the radar last week.  I have started post-graduate studies in Applied Behavioural Analysis and I sort of freaked out with stress and boycotted the computer for most of the week.  The only time I was on the computer was to check my class info and hop onto Rav from time to time.  But, now that I’m into my classes (one in Applied behavioural Analysis and one in professional Ethics) I have a better handle on  life and feel like can write and knit and do some fun stuff again.

Now to the knitting.

I did manage to get some knitting finished this week.  First the left front of Roam is finished and I have started the right front.  I think it will be finished just in time for the summer when it’s too darn hot to wear it.  But, I will have a lovely sweater waiting for in the autumn.  I have made more progress on the secret baby present for Little O and the EBI has been a great saviour for my sanity as I can pick it up and put it down easily and it’s so darn pretty.

I do actually have a couple of posts scheduled to drop this week as it’s my goal to still maintain things here to the best of my abilities while giving up a ton of free time to reading and assignment writing.

Hope everyone had a great fibre week.

    All I have to say about ABA is ICK! I struggled so much with Behavioral Analysis…most people do, apparently. I suppose that’s why that’s not my focus in education…

  • Kepanie

    I’m amazed at how many cross-thrus you have! Kudos to you for going for your post-grad degree.

  • anjig

    Wow – you’re managing to have all that going, despite post-graduate studies! You’re superwoman. And you managed to work on Roam? You know I’m going to cheer for Roam after your creative day post 🙂

  • Liz

    I’m glad to hear you’ve made progress with Roam, it’s going to be gorgeous!

  • Emma

    Good luck in your new course! Don’t forget to do some knitting as well, you need to relax!

  • sandy

  • Underground Crafter

    Congratulations on starting your program and good luck on balancing knitting, blogging, and whatever other fun things you do with school! As always, I’m super impressed with your finishes.

  • kimmery4

    How do you do it all? School and all that amazing knitting too? I can barely work, maintain my house, read and knit–blogging often suffers for me. Hope you week has been stellar–
