Pretty Pattypans

The first week of school is going really well-- I only have one more class, tomorrow morning.  They all seem interesting so far, and I hadn't realized how much I missed actually creating garments last semester.  I'm especially excited about my knitwear design class and my knitwear pattern-making class. Having three days with only one class is great, too, because I don't have to save all my errands for either after a class that ends at 9:20 p.m. or the weekend.  Although we keep being told that fifth semester is really rigorous, it doesn't actually seem like an unmanageable amount of work thus far.  Of course, having one liberal arts class instead of three is helping that situation, too.


Over the summer, my dad grew pattypan squash in our garden.  They're the cutest vegetables ever!  They look like big spinning tops, or maybe baskets with flower-shaped lids. These aren't the ones my dad grew, I didn't get around to taking a picture of them before leaving for school, but they're still soooo cute!


thank you so much for visiting, and for your thoughts! x
