only six papers? That's not a lot of writing. 14 papers in 14 weeks is a lot of writing. I write a 3 page paper in two hours with a glass of wine, edit for spelling and grammar, and turn it in. Even now, when I'm writing fifteen-to-twenty page research papers, it only takes me one night. I never spend more than one day on a paper. And I think I've written more than one draft....twice. Maybe. And only because I was forced. And during class there's a lot of talking and not a lot of writing--a perfect time to work on a pair of deadly socks.

I don't mind waiting until September at the moment, I have a lot of other projects I want to work on. Like the socks, scarf, glove, and hat set I want to make for my sister. :D

I am sorry, I'm horrible with grammer/spelling. I e-mailed the sock monkey today to join in the fun of the sock war. I have never knitted socks before, but i'm sure I could figure it out before the sock war started.

Hmmm...I don't know if there is a list up yet, I didn't see one on YarnMonkey's blog, I just saw the KWC list there.

LOL, looks like ya'll have some time to prepare for the Wars!!!

I think that's for the Knitting World Cup, as Becka said, and Anree did participate in that. The deadline for the Sock Wars isn't until Sept. 8th or thereabouts, so I'll bet we won't see a list until then, at least.

Are you joining, Andrea?! Oh do!

No no no, I'm not joining. I can't even find the time to knit a pair for myself!!

Re: Freshman Comp...IMHO most freshmen are young and naive and I believe most of those have problems writing. And between all the crap freshmen deal with (esp. with the pressures of drinking and being on their own for the first time!), I would imagine six papers in a semester would be hard for those pups. Aylaanne you must be one of the smarter ones I loved English myself! And I know Angelia is the best Prof in the world!
