waiting kind of guy, is nevertheless getting a full measure of the season. MIT has announced that early action decisions will be up at 12:14 on 12/14. That's next Saturday in case you don't have a calendar handy.
What once had seemed so far off, a distant, fuzzy sort of thought, has suddenly become a very real pit in his stomach. Waiting, he has discovered, is not a linear (nor a rational) thing.
He's managing his anxiety in various ways, including crocheting (and house chores - woot!). We poked around Ravelry on Friday night and found a pattern for a crocheted bow tie (since The Boy can now tie a bow tie, as well as a regular tie three different ways), along with a ball of neon lime green wool from his stash. I kept him company and learned a new knitting stitch.
NEWS FLASH: The tie is done, The Boy just bounced into my office to show it off, now he's off to block it. If you want a crocheted bow tie in a neon color, now might be a good time to ask The Boy.
