Attention Deficit Myopia

Posted on Feb 06, 2008. 2 comments

I've been working on my Nordic EPS Sweater lately. But only because it feels like I should before moving onto the more exciting projects I have planned.

I am overflowing with ideas like a fountain only without the spare change. I wish I had extra hours in each day so I see the ideas to fruition. Which is sort of like my thesis writing, only without all the writing. And the ideas. And the motivation.
I'm certain I'd feel about as proud if someone referenced my research (I use the Atomic Force Microscope to study amyloids found in ALS-Lou Gehrig's Disease) as I do about Lori taking up knitting. As if that wasn't gratifying enough, she's the first to knit one of my designs as well. (It turns out she has a heart too!)
If I could relearn knitting I'd like to do it like Lori has. She sent a lovely Christmas gift in December. I had a laugh when I saw the box.

And then I had pangs of jealousy when I realized this was her third project ever.

It's a mug cozy she designed herself. You can see the rest of the box Here, Here, and Here.)
Now if I could only get her into Physics....

    I don’t know if mine is nearly as cool as the Diet Coke hoar one…
    Physics, schmisics. I hear those amyl-oids are a lot like hemorrh-oids.
    You should knit something and think about it more.

    I’ve been sick for a few days and haven’t done jack. Soon I’ll be back in it, though…maybe I’ll have a diet coke to kill whatever germs are in me.
