Proctoring comprehensive examinations always reminds me of the day I passed my doctoral exams. Once I realized that I’d finished taking the Very Last Test I’d ever have to take, I drove straight over to the yarn shop and purchased a gorgeous and expensive hank of undyed silk lace-weight yarn.

Today’s test-takers are undergraduates, some of whom I’ve had the pleasure to teach, and it occurs to me that I might want to make something with that yarn before one of THEM gets a doctorate.
