Spring Break (early)

So the University is winding down for spring break (begins at 5pm Friday) but since my classess and office hours were done by noon today - my break begins early :)  Actually I only plan to take a few days of down time and then I need to focus on getting some writing done and some articles submitted.  Monday morning I will head back to the office and focus on research without the distraction of teaching and students for two whole weeks!

I am still slowly working on the border of the baby tree afghan.  I hope to get a few hours in on that this afternoon.  And I have a bunch of tails to tuck in...  A bunch as you can see...

In other crafty stuff I need to get back to my socks once this afghan is done.  I joined along with a challenge on Ravelry (Year Long A-Z KAL) to make 26 pair of socks in 2011!  I must be mad!  We are allowed to begin one new pair corresponding to a new letter of the alphabet each two week period.  So far I have completed my A and C socks, am ready to start the gusset on both B socks, and have cast on D.  I need to be ready to cast on E beginning this weekend!  I somehow doubt I will be able to keep up the pace for the entire year, but worst case scenario is that I have several new pair of socks :)  It's all good!

Here is my progress on my B socks:

B is for "Be Mine"
