Back on track

Filed under: General,Knitting,Teaching — by bethc @ 2:22 pm

I am beginning to feel that I have my life slightly back on track after the stealing of the wallet episode. Interestingly it seems I was robbed by the same folks who robbed the daughter of an important law enforcement official who teaches at another school. Thus my new motto is, "If you're going to be a victim, be one with someone famous!"

On the knitting front there's not much to report. I have started the front of Avery and am now slogging through the corrugated ribbing. Two rows down, four to go. I find it really tedious with all the moving the yarn back and forth.

LPBThis afternoon and again tomorrow Julie and I are teaching at Button Hole Bag Parties… no, it's not a new kind of Tupperware. You see, knitting is really popular with our students and so for our school auction we offered one of these parties. The idea was to gather some kids and some Lamb's Pride Bulky and get them to make a bag (or get a really good start on one) in a party setting. The item was so popular that we ended up agreeing to do three parties… and making a lot of money for financial aid at our school. The photo shows some of the yarn that was floating around school today. You can tell which colors are popular with "the youth of today!" I'll try for a photo essay of the event on Monday.
