When I checked my e-mail tonight I was so utterly shocked at how many people had commented and e-mailed about my paper. Thanks to everyone who sent it to me and thanks to everyone who posted it on their blogs (unfortunately because of this portfolio/graduation/bad grades stress I haven't had much time to read blogs—I just had to go by word of mouth so to speak). We've had a lot of snow days (as compared to last year where we only had 2 and a "threat of snow" day) so my graduation has been pushed to June 1st. :( But at least I don't have to sit in freezing classrooms. But anyway, thanks everyone I have to have the paper written by Friday which I will start on ASAP. (My teacher is evil btw, so writing about knitting would go completely over her head...hehe).

I've been trying to come up with something to write to put into my senior writing portfolio and have come up with a fabulous idea! (Maybe not to the people reading I might confuse the hell out of them). But it will be an article on...knitting meeting aromatherapy. What kind of music do you listen to? Do you have a candle lit or something scented to help you relax as you knit and purl (or struggle with that stupid pattern that looks so pretty in the picture!)? Has knitting gotten you through a stressful time (i.e. final exams, diagnosis of a disease of a loved one or yourself, death of your goldfish, etc.)? Is there a relaxing yarn of choice? If anyone reads this and knows of anyone with a knitting blog please link them here if I can get it written up soon that will be great (and of course it will be here!). And if I can get my hands on some of that lavender-scented yarn (can't think of what it is called but I'll find out) I will totally write about it. Thanks ahead of time!
