This is all I see!, originally uploaded by Soasa Designs.

I’m absolutely hooked on weaving. My class yesterday was wonderful, and I understood a great deal of it, though the new vocabulary is a bit tricky. We learned to warp the loom and all that is involved with that, as well as a good bit of history (although I can’t say I have any idea what she said regarding that…)

Weaving is a great way to utilize some of the yarn I have that I can’t knit with! Cottons, silks, even acrylics… I’m so excited to finally get into some of the pretty yarns I have! The picture above is of my second project…Yes I was so enthused when I got home yesterday that I finished the class project and warped a second because I couldn’t wait to use the cute peachy cotton yarn I had in my drawer!

Check out my Project Spectrum Set on Flickr for more of what I’m working on!

Self-Eval, originally uploaded by Soasa Designs.

I have something I need to declare, and I need to state it publicly because it’s harder to back out of something once you’ve told other people you’ll do it (I hope.) Starting tomorrow (only because I already can’t remember today’s list) I’m writing every single thing I eat or drink in that little book in the image above (which also happens to be my impromptu knitting idea book, so the incentive to carry it around is good.)I haven’t decided what to do with that information yet.

I think I just need to take stock.

I know I eat a ton of those cute high-fiber crackers with suns and wheat stalks imprinted on them.
I know I eat a ton of lite Finlandia cheese (cream cheese but a lot lighter.)
I know I eat a lot of Activia yogurts, because they have the best flavors…(unfortunately the low-fat one’s suck.)
I eat a lot of tomatoes…

My energy is really low, and I’m always hungry.
I can’t summon the energy to go out with Ceci and friends because I can’t handle having to speak The Language all night.
My mood is swinging violently.
I can’t seem to kick the cough lodged in my chest.
I think I’m sleeping way too much.

I think I’ll add also that I’m keeping track of how much I sleep, how much I get out of the house and how my energy levels feel throughout the day.

Basically I want to be able to write a post like this. Or this. Or this.

I feel like with all the hustle before I left for this trip I didn’t get to do my yearly self-evaluation and re-adjustment and I think now is the time. Something’s gotta give or I’m going to waste this adventure away…

Last Minute!

I’m on my way out the door because I’ve just decided to join some friends in a quick bus trip to Mendoza!
I’ll be back on Friday morning in order to make it to a class.
