knitting a lot is a very healthy response to stress! you'll rock the world, though, so no worries. might as well go out for a walk!

one day soon someone will ask you a question about some sort of bug minutae, and when you're able to answer them all quick-like you'll realize all at once that you know quite a lot of things.

in any way: a beautiful outpouring of stress.

That yellow purse is awesome. I live in Canada, it's -20C today (brrr!), and that sunny yellow purse looks like the sun, warmth. Exams are hard...I have a big exam next week (groan)

Gwen, don't stress. are such an inspiration and seem to be so passionate and knowledgeable...I'm sure you'll do just fine.

Deep breaths, as others have said.

The purse is lovely, btw.

I went out tonight and brought my bugheart purse with me. I didn't expect to get as many compliments as I did on it...everyone (well, all the girls, anyway) loved the buttons and the bold color. It made me smile. :)

Don't forget how far you've come in your journey. You will do just fine on the exam.

your stress-knitting is divine. the combination of colors, the buttons.

best of luck to you on the last big exam!

Crafting is good for me too. But when I'm too stressed I can't find rest to craft. Pity! I envy you.

Exams wig me out too. But you strike me as someone who knows a whole lot of damned (and undamned)things. Just remember - you love bugs!

it's all in there, it will come out when you need to recall it.

fresh rosemary tea (from the plant) with sage and thyme, really helps the concentration and eases butterflies in the tummy. good luck x

Good luck. Think of how silly it will seem when you look back on it in 5 years!
And I think knitting is a pretty healthy way to deal with stress. Think of all the other choices!

It's great that you are using knitting to de-stress, constructive and beautiful. Good luck on your exam, I'm sure you'll do well.

Knitting is a great antidote to stress! I love the bag and the buttons are great! Someone knitted me a bag that looks a lot like that one and I've been trying to figure out the pattern. Is that your own pattern or an existing one?

I'm sure you know everything, it's just pre exam nerves. Best of luck. xo lj
