It’s final exam time here in law school land, so I’ve been spending most of my time with my three close friends Evidence, Land Use, and Federal Income Tax. What fun!
I have been doing some knitting though, mostly to counteract the caffeine and adrenaline that fuel me during this time of year. I’ve been working on Exchequered, because it requires enough concentration to truly take my mind off of thing and give me a break from law.
Also, because I am a total nerd, I will point out that its name makes Exchequered particularly appropriate for law school knitting. The Court of Exchequer Chamber was a court of appeals in England “back in the day” (as the kids say) which law students encounter reading oldies-but-goodies such as Hadley v. Baxendale, one of the classic Contracts cases.
Double-knitting is fun once you get the hang of it, and I’m loving the results, but I’m having tension issues. The edge stitches are particularly bad.
Does anyone have any hints?
