Honours Symposium, Crafting, and Light Box, Oh My!

On the Needles: "Untalkative Bunny" scarf
To knit this week: Above scarf and a pair of baby booties!

So, we're gearing up for our Honours symposium for March 16 and 17th! The title is (Re)Scriptae, and the blog is here: We'll be adding more information as we get it, like posters, and there might be individual paper information going up. We're just trying to get everything sorted out.

It's going to be awesome, though, no matter what!

It's now reading week, which means that I need to get a 40 page draft of my paper done by next Thursday/Friday. My boyfriend and I were supposed to go to Victoria this week, but excitingly, he got an interview with Husky! So, we're staying in town. Which will work out better, considering the fact that I have a a group presentation the week after the break, and I have more work to do than normal. Still somewhat disappointing. Coincidentally, my horoscope two days later said that I would be invited to something wonderful, but something marvelous might have to be cancelled. Which is what happened!

But, staying home, also lets me do a lot of work on the Etsy shop, which is fun, too. And we'll go out to Banff/Lake Louise on Tuesday for (as my boyfriend's termed it) "Valentine's and a Half." hehe Which also means, we're going to go "Knit 'n Caboodle" in Canmore, which I'm excited for. I haven't been there before, but it looks awesome!

Yesterdah, I made a light box. So, my photos are going to be coming out a lot better, and it means that I can also take pictures at night, which is a big advantage for me! Not that I won't take natural light photos, especially of my knitting projects, but there's a big (good) difference between the two:
The one on the left is the edited version of natural light; the one on the right is the "point and click" version from my light box.

It's going to be lots of work, but fun, to replace all the listings that I have already.

Other than that, just trying to keep afloat with school work!

And now, I run away~! (I'll post after Banff. I'm sure I'll have more yarn to add to my stash and to show you guys!)

Take care!

Katie =^..^=
