Chapter 1, almost done!

Loquita asked about the writing, so I thought I'd share publicly.

I'm *ALMOST* done with Chapter 1. Well, with the draft of Chapter 1. I have to go back to the archives on friday and then will spend saturday and sunday writing and re-writing, but by goodness the draft of the first chapter will be emailed to my advisors next Sunday night.

Then, there will be yarn purchasing. A while ago, I told myself I woudn't buy any yarn until I finished the first chapter. It's worked, I haven't bought any new yarn (not that I really need any right now)- I've done a ton of knitting from stash, and I've gotten the writing done.

More importantly, once I finish (i.e. completely done) the entire thesis, I am going to learn to spin. I'm aiming for that being right around SAFF time.

So- that's my timeline and my rewards. And now, to go to work to pay the bills.

Yay! I'm glad to hear all is going well. I've watched two good friends, plus my bro-in-law (I could also put him under the friend category :)) go through the thesis process for PhD's, so I just wanted to let you know I was putting some good writing karma out there for you. :)
