So I’m on day 4 or maybe 5 of Spring Break which means day 5 of being stuck at school in the knitting lab.. think I’m starting to lose my marbles. Anyways I have gotten sooo much done this week though. It is so incredibly relaxing to only have to worry about knitting this week. No class or work pressure and just knitting feels so rewarding.
This week I finished a bunch of my graphs that I need to knit down the rest of my garments. I also knit my jacquard for my dress and knit my sweater on Stoll and I am currently putting together all the pieces. Today felt useless though. I have been waking up so early every day and running to school to grab a machine that I think it is finally wearing into me. I reattached my neck trim 4 times before I got it to be what I wanted. My mind is slowly melting away and my appearance and eating habits are definitely affected as well -___-.
Can’t wait until I can just enjoy the nice weather and take care of myself again haha.
Anyways here’s where I’m at with my intarsia sweater currently!
Keep you updated for more soon!
I am a sportswear senior, and currently working on my senior collection as well as all my fellow seniors are on track of. The spring break has finally come, however I cannot say that I am taking this time for having a vacation. Still, it fells like we have a space between classes to focus on our work and think clearly. I recommend you who are staying at campus and in the city to take good rest, and progress in their work, which is what I am doing. Don’t let internships, cold weather and cold or flue to take you down!
The previous weeks we had our critic’s visit, and the model fitting, and I assume everyone is almost (or more) half way through. I started seeing too many interesting works. We have too many talented people at FIT, so it is quite interesting to be involved in this event, and witness the process of these beautiful garments from start to the show time. Here are some images I took while we were having our model fitting. Our professors are helping a lot, and also, Prof. Paula Varsalona are visiting the classes from time to time to help us on our draping and pattern work. And here’s a tip, she is on campus for a little time during the spring break, so if you are at school and need some help, you may take advantage of this!
Hope everyone have a peaceful and healthy break and come back as eager to work as they can!
I went home to Texas for my last Spring Break…ever! I loved it, I got to hang out with my niece and nephews, family and friends. Here is a little look at where I am from…Oh, and I really do live like 10 minutes away from China Grove!!!
Here we are… Spring Break 2010. Visions of Puerto Rico, all-inclusive resorts, teeny-weeny bikinis, Mojitos on the beach, potential “friends” surfing the waves, hot sun, sand between your toes and –
What I mean is visions of 7:30 am alarms, sopping wet commutes to school, underground dungeon retreats, rainbows of potential yarns, knitting machines galore, stray yarn stuck to your jeans, teeny-weeny transfer needles, and CRAP there’s a run in my knitting what the frick do I do?! CAN I FIX IT?! ERRRG that only took me an HOUR TO DO. WHERE IS MY COCKTAIL — I MEAN CROCHET HOOK?!
*SIGH* Goodbye natural light, bon voyage early spring, farewell polluted New York air. Bonjour spring break, greetings basement dungeon, and HELLO to a week of knitting.
