Ain't No Mold for Me

In late June during my school's renovation, workers found high levels of toxic mold in an estimated sixty classrooms. Of course, Tokay High School was expecting renovation construction to continue into the the first few weeks of school, but this ugly bag of snakes reared its head. Now, classes are delayed until September (they usually start in July 30/31), students lose parts of their fall and spring break and nine days of summer vacation; the mold removal will end at around the 2008 summer.

It's not that bad because I have more time to finish my homework for my advanced placement class for the next school year and I have more time to hang out with my friends who are also in limbo with me. Not to mention having the house to myself while my little brother and sister are at school which starts at July 30 or 31. I can also finish some knitting projects in time for school, the universal fashion show.

Books, Help, and Declension of Singular Nouns

On Friday, the books I ordered arrived. They're absolutely

awesome and gorgeous that I can't wait to

knit the patterns.

I also encountered problems knitting the Gothlet. I just don't like how my post looks like; it's terrible. But, my whole problem is outlined there.

And, I have been learning more Russian since I last posted and there are so many things to learn, it's crazy. There pronouns, noun and verb cases, and adjectives and so on. I don't mind but, it's a lot of stuff to go through.

My Gothlet post looks better now, I finally figured out how to edit posts.

Coming Attractions

Well, It's been a while since I posted, but it's not all that bad. Over the weekend, I ordered Classic Knits and Glamour Knits By Erika Knight. I've looked through the books and the patterns look awesome. The Glamour Knits book also started my obsession with the Rowan Kidsilk Haze yarn mostly because of a pattern for long gloves in the book. They're spectacular and knit with size two needles. I got the needles at Wal-Mart (they're all metal) and I consider these needles as a high risk object. The stabbing and killing potential is enormous.
