Where has the time gone??

It's almost midterm, and I haven't posted since before the school year started. Needless to say, my knitting time is drastically decreased during the school year.

I have been knitting Brooklyn Tweed's Girasole Shawl (in Noro Kureyon Sock in the S40 colorway), a big circular shawl pattern test knit (in Great Adirondack Silky Sock in the Cantaloupe colorway), a smaller shawl of my own design (also in Great Adirondack Silky Sock, but in the Grenada colorway), and a pair of socks for the Boy Child (a.k.a. Mr. Bigfoot) (in Zitron Trekking Pro Natura in a steely-blue color).

I have accomplished the following since school started:
* the buttonholes are in the Coat of Many Colors,
* the sleeves in my grand-niece's sweater-tunic are half knit,
* an additional half of a pattern repetition in the wedding stole.

Not much to show for six weeks, is it? :::sigh::: But the junior mechanical engineering students are learning the finer points of mechanical design and analysis, the freshmen (two sections) are learning that college is *not* like high school, and my honors seminar students are enjoying reading Jane Austen and learning about what life in England was like during her lifetime.

What are you knitting? Hopefully, you're making more rapid progress than I am!
