Wedding Dress

I'm am sooo excited people, I got my wedding dress last week and it is absolutely lovely. I am looking for veils and because my dress is simple, I think I want a mantilla veil. If you haven't seen one of these, just do a quick google search. They are beautiful lace edged veils that are exquisite. It will add just enough decoration and sparkle to my dress.

On the knitting front, I am still working on the second alpaca sox, I thought it would be to hot to finish it soon...but I forgot that I live in Michigan where it snows in April at least once every year. The first sock came out beautiful and I keep getting complements on it, I'm on the foot of the second sock so it should be done soon. I'm contemplating starting a February Lady Sweater..I've never done a sweater before but this seems to be an easy one (check out the designers blog flintknits )

Also, I'm finally getting my degree, Grad School is officially over. I finished my requirements last November but due to some shuffling of paper, I wasn't able to register to graduate until this semester. I am soooo glad to be done, but apparently I'm a perpetual student because I've already started looking at Ph.D programs. The University of Michigan Ann Arbor has a joint program in Political Science and Public Policy that is looking pretty good....we will see. For now I'm taking a break and focusing on getting married and chillin' out for the summer.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

I wish I was finished, I can't wait for this semester to be over with and I am NOT taking any summer classes. I need a break.

YEAH!!! You got your wedding dress, how awesome. The veil sounds gorgeous.

Political Science, public policy! A woman after my own heart.

I bought yarn for the February Sweater, but I think I might use it for another cardi.
