Summer at Last!



Long time, no see!

Since I last wrote, I have finished finals, celebrated the graduation of several good friends (including the lovely Bethany, who I am going to miss like crazypants), and started my summer internship at NTI, a benchtop nanotech development company.


Labcoat + goggles = skillz of a super hero! It's great to have something to do, even if a lot of it is prep work and cleaning up after reactions. Next week, as a short break from work, Ondrea, my friend Val and I are going to a Dave Matthews Band concert in Cincinnati... I am super excited!

Lately, I have been pretty obsessed with the color green. Last summer, I had a sudden and inexplicable hankering for bright green yarn. I've been trying to find it ever since, but have always come up empty - or, more often than not, with a green that's nice but not quite what I was looking for. Well... this last weekend, Angela and I went on a trip to Trader Joe's and French Creek Fiber Arts, where I found my green - twice!


In edamame, one of the most delicious beans on the planet, and....


....the most beautiful, electric, slightly variegated green yarn ever. Om frickin' nom.


I can't stop photographing this yarn... holy crap.





Geez, what an attention whore.

It is some awesome green yarn...

Have you started the silk t-shirt yet?

I am on a massive finishitis swing. I haven't started my croc yet because I am so busy... finishing....

I swatched a couple of nights ago and I think I have to go up to a size 2! Which, amazingly, I don't actually have.

Yay finishing! I heard you're going through your stash, too...

I fully support this green obsession.

I LOVE those beans, but I never knew how to refer to them in anglicized terms. I'm Chinese, so I always knew them by their Chinese name.
