One of the things besides my awesome friends that has been keeping me sane is knitting, as always. Right now I'm in the middle of making a pair of socks! Socks are something I've never tried, but I've wanted to for a long time. I actually started a pair about a year but then decided to use the yarn for something else. My inspiration to start socks again was really pushed by me drooling on a sock yarn on KnitPicks. Knitpicks is an awesome site with tons of great yarn and supplies at really cheap prices. I always go on there to check for a sale. I had been thinking about socks anyway, when I went on and saw a really cool colorway (this particular colorway is called "Juicebox") and bought it with the intention of making socks.
This was after my friend Liz told me she was making some scrap socks and decided to give me a pair. She showed me progress and this is what they looked like when they were done:
Not related to knitting, recently I danced the night away by attending my FOURTH and unfortunately last Snow Ball dance. A bit of context for most of you reading my blog--The Snow Ball is a dance similar to a high school prom that my college puts on at the beginning of every spring semester. I've attended every year I've been attending college.
Here are some pictures of Snow Ball over the years!
Unfortunately, I couldn't find a photo from 2012 that didn't feature exclusively myself and my ex-boyfriend, so I'm forced to leave that year out. All in all, I've had a lot of fun these past four years dressing up with my friends; some of which I've been lucky to know for all four years, some less than a year but I value all of their friendship equally. They've all been very good to me, and Snow Ball has always been a time for me to enjoy dancing and friendship with some of the best people I've known over the years.
Until next week, everyone!
