Got your back…

Filed under: General,Knitting,Teaching — by bethc @ 10:27 am

Yesterday was one of those days! Because of family commitments and illness I was the only 6th grade teacher at school. Oh there were subs, but as one of the kids said I was the only "real" teacher. When they finally left for the day I realized I had only had 30 minutes all day when I wasn't with kids or their parents… no wonder I never got this post up!

LC back close upSo the Log Cabin Warshrag continues and I don't like the back at all. I don't know if I am just bad a picking up stitches or what but I have all these lumps and bumps. I guess I have to figure out how to do this if I'm going to make a blanket! I posted my difficulties on the MDKAL and both Kara and Arlene had some suggestions… Any others would be greatly appreciated. The main problem seems to be at the spots where I am picking up from the side and then switch to picking up from a bind off.

LC backAnyway, here it is as of about 4:00 yesterday. How dorky of me that the object I have for scale is a red pen for grading papers… After this picture I put on one more bar of white and called it done. Then I started on a back in the brown so that I can cover up by inability to pick up stitches!

Not much planned for this week-end. We may go to an art show where a friend of my parents' is showing his photos. We have to excavate in the guest room because my parents arrive on Tuesday since B leaves for a week on the the west coast early Monday morning.

I hope everyone has a great week-end!


  1. Yeah, sorry about that whole my-head-is-a-hand-grenade thing that happened yesterday, but I promise it was no fun not eating and lying on the couch sweating all day. You KNOW I’m sick if I am
    a) too weak to knit -and-
    b) too tired to tend the blog
    At any rate, keep guinea-pigging that log cabin warshrag, because I’ll need your tips when I start my denim l/c blankie. Hugs to Bunny–Biscuits and I picked him up a little somthing today for being such a good friend on Friday.
