Is it a hoodie yet?

I bought yarn!

When I found out that 3 Kittens was having a big sale on everything (25% off every single thing in the store, and a lot of stuff was 50% off) I decided to get the yarn for the Heather Hoodie from the new issue of Knitscene:

For my size, I needed 6 balls of Berroco Comfort Chunky and I ended up saving about $10 with the sale, whee, this is going to be one cheap sweater! I chose the Dusk colorway, I nice heathery gray color that will be awesome for fall. Oh, but you know how I wanted to wear it to school? Not going to happen, there's a dress code for my program, noooooo! Dress codes are my enemy and make me sad, but it's only for a year so I can deal with it. You can only wear all white (ew) or all black with white no-scuff shoes and a white lab coat every day to class. I think it's kind of funny that I'll be wearing a lab coat though :) And by the way, does anyone have any good local recommendations for where to buy one, I can't say I've cruised around any uniform stores lately :) It's a good thing that I hadn't bought much for school clothes yet, just one pair of pants that I was able to return. It really would have been nice to know about a dress code sooner though. And of course I don't have any clothes like that, I really don't wear black pants and don't have any plain black tops either, so I'll be off to Target and probably the mall very soon. I have to buy shoes too, how annoying! Ok, I'm done whining now!

P.S. I finished C25K for this week, I did my third run yesterday at the park with Shane.

hooray for C25K training! j and i did a run yesterday and i ache like nothing else today - that'll teach me to not train for 3 weeks!

and dress codes S.U.C.K... who ever thought that they were in any way related/conducive to learning, at least when you're old enough to not want to look inside everyone else's?
