It's a Jarrett winter

I'm zeroing in on a defense date - this is why I've been largely missing from the whole cyberworld. I miss you! So I'm excited that things should calm down quite a bit after early April. Finishing this long dissertation process will be such a weight off my shoulders. I can't wait.

I'm in Fargo this week on business ('Fargo in February? Really? We're *really* going to do this??') and I think this is the coldest real temperature I've seen in my life. I know you Minnesota and Canadian gals are used to this so that's all I'm going to say about that.

Chicago was painfully beautiful at the end of last week, at the start of our cold snap.

The Mart
The Merchandise Mart right before Superbowl weekend. I've gotta admit, I'm happy for the Colts. Deep inside, I'm still an Indiana gal.

In knitting news, I'm working on Jarrett from Vintage Style. It's for Rock Star. It's out of Plymouth Tweed. I had to sub out Rowan because it's discontinued. I really like how this tweed in knitting up - it's making a beautiful brown fabric on US6 needles.

And it's perfect for a chilly professor.

Defense!? That's fantastic!

Love the Jarrett. In fact I love most of the stuff in Vintage Style.

Fargo? That is a serious level of cold. Mr Moe applied for a research engineer position there pre-phd for the heck of it. They called him for an interview. We decided to decline.

Defense date? Aren't those just a big myth? ;o) (I want one of those, but apparently, I have to have a completed PhD first... darn those details!)

And I'm all thumbs up for Jarrett - there really isn't enough of those out in the knitting world.
