Day 90: Backlog of FOs

I realized this morning that I haven't posted much knitting progress on here during the past few months. Needless to say again, I've been a bit preoccupied.

While I haven't been knitting consistently, I have finished and started quite a few projects:

And then immediately cast on for my Brand New Day Shawlette. I've got another set of rows to complete before I can start the lace edging.

I also knit some fingerless mitts...

a hat...

and a cute hood for my upcoming road trip with my best friend, Sarah.

Day 75: Rebound Cooking, Knitting, and Dating

It's getting easier to get through the day without thinking about Nick so much.  I'm often distracted with 

Dinners with family:

Cooking dates with new friends:

Reading/preparing for book clubs: 

And lots and lots of knitting. 
Progress on Snow White's Breakup Shawl:

Knitting dates with new friends:
This was his progress after about an hour. Look at that even garter stitch!  

I've also gone on a whole slew of conventional dates with interesting men I have little interest in. Dating is hard, but I know I need to be single right now to focus on myself and the goals I want to accomplish in the coming months. One of those goals is definitely to meet a lot more people here in LA and develop a nice social circle. Can't do that if I don't put myself out there and at least try.

I get my bar results on Friday afternoon at 6pm. Those results will determine the next 6 months of my life... whether I can start looking for jobs or whether I have to sit down, study and take the exam again. At this point, I just want to know the results, either way. The waiting game is just awful.
