Well! Yesterday morning I was knitting on an Oregon beach, the Pacific Ocean keeping me company. Today I'm back in desert country, baking in near 100F heat, wondering why I just finished a pair of thick woolen socks.
But one of the most important developments to come out of the road trip--even more important than a new pair of socks--I am no longer a graduate student!! People ask me what I'm going to do with all that time now. I glance down at my knitting and shrug.
