Hey everyone! Sorry I’ve been MIA lately. Classes have been kind of crazy and I’m getting ready to take the MCAT on May 17. With all of this going on, I’ve barely had any time to knit. I did however cast on the first sleeve of the octopus sweater a few weeks ago and I finished it today! This sleeve is mostly solid black with just the very top of the octopus’ head showing. It was quick and easy…

Knitting Inspiration - I really love all these vivid blues. You may have heard me mention the “blue bird of happiness,” which is exactly the color of blue that I associate with all sorts of positive things; maybe it’s because I keep that bird on the windowsill next to my bed or maybe it’s because I just watched Watchmen last night and my thoughts are all blue-glowing and voiced in a soothingly rational tone at the moment, but I can’t stop thinking in tones of blue.

“Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.” Ernest Hemingway (via eclait)
