lookee here!

awww, DBF surprised me last night by picking me up from the train instead of my daddy! and he had a slice of my favoritest pie! and on my desk was this:

two dozen red roses and six pink carnations!
suh-weet!!! he's the greatest. made my birthday SUCH a special day!!

as for olympic knitting, made some more swatches. determined whole sweater to be made on size 8 needles. and it is looking to be a challenge because i have TONS of homework, and on friday i work til 2, need to call one friend, pick bro up from school at 8pm, then hang with a friend home from maybe 4 hours knitting time? can i make an entire sweater in 16 days WITH work and school? i dunno!!
