Still Breathing

Just to let you all know I'm still breathing—it's finals week. I had Econ Monday (I felt prepared); a weaving crit; finished up C&I today; Law final at 8 effing 30 tomorrow morning; then surface design crit on Thursday afternoon and I'm done. Mostly. In between tornado sirens/warnings and demands by school officials that we hide in the bathrooms until the storms passed, I managed to get 1 and 2/3rd yard of my 9-yard final weaving project woven. Midway through, I ran into a snag—literally. When winding forward, my warp pulls the harnesses forward too. One of the hooky-jobbers on the first harness managed to hook itself into my already-woven cloth. I didn't notice it until suddenly I couldn't raise the harnesses.

Oy.

My saving grace is that since I'll be whacking up the yardage to make a coat anyway, I can probably use creative pattern layout and just avoid the big honkin' hole in my cloth. It didn't mess up the rest of the tension or run all the way down, so it's salveagable. But still. OY!

Then there's surface design... that project will get finished at home during the summer and turned in later (yes, I'm taking an incomplete, I just got too busy and being sick one week didn't help).

Well, that's all for now. I supposed I'd best get to sleep. Tomorrow is the LAST day I have to get up in the morning for awhile (yay), and the LAST exam of the semester. Of course I won't fully breathe until it's all completely done, but I think I'm safely in the home stretch staring at the plate. See you this weekend!
