I've brought my knitting to almost all of these talks (with the exception of several weeks last Fall when I brought my job applications because I needed more time to work on them). Last Thursday was my last CMS. It turned out that the week before was my last colloquium, since the speaker scheduled for last week fell ill and was unable to come. I'm graduating! I might have to come up with a new excuse for some kind of weekly update post.
My knitting last week wasn't particularly interesting. I knitted most of the gusset on the first sock in the pair I'm knitting for my husband's birthday next month. The black/navy yarn is pretty hard to see. Knitting men's socks is much more time consuming than women's socks - I'm really noticing that this sock is going much more slowly than the purple knot theory socks I'm knitting for my advisor!
