New Group Formation

I am the secretary for the knitting club on my campus called Knit-Wits. And I recently created a Ravelry group for us XD. Hopefully I can get the members to sign up and start using Ravelry!! I took some pictures of them
On a different note i finished a few projects i had on the needles. But i only got around to taking pictures of one of them o_0 i know, i know but college life is hectic, between sleep, knitting and eating i haven't any time to do anything (maybe i should include classes hmmmmm......nope overrated lolz jk jk). The pattern is called One Day Beret by Kristen Kapur on Ravelry.

Loving What Fall Brings

I love the fall. The changing of the leaves and the beautiful color they form. My school is situated on a huge hill over lookign a valley and all around it are even more hills. Walking through campus you can see all the shades of yellow, orange, red, brown and green on the hills. Its absolutely amazing.

On thursday i made apple cider! It was awesome! The entire Hays Hall Staff went to the Outing Club's Director. His home was amazing, complete with a barn, lake and 8 acres of land o_0. I was in awe it felt like heaven! The cider making machine was in his barn so we all headed on up there and gathered around this contraption.

The machine looked like something out of the 18th century lolz but it got the job done. We had about 100 apples and 4 different kinds to make the cider. Ive never made cider before so this was an entirely new experience for me. First we set up the machine and feed the apples through the razor thing lolz. Then you turn the wheel and Voila out comes crushed apples and cider!!

Yesterday i went rollerblading at the local skating rink. It was so much fun. My school hosted the event and we they provided free food for us XD (College kids love free food!!). The only time i fell the entire time was in the last 5 minutes of the program!. I was heading for the edge of the rink were my friends were taking off their skates and as i braced for impact my arms grabed the wall but my feet kept going rite past me lmaoo. It was straight out of a comedy i fell in slow motion!! i couldn't stop laughing.
