This week I finished two cowls for myself. My own Katniss inspired cowl, but in black, and a green cowl to wear for Twin Day at school. I love cowls.
I am also test knitting a cowl pattern. I realized last night I missed a couple of yarn overs, but I'm not going to rip it back. with the cowl sitting scrunched around my neck, it will not be noticeable. I am not a perfectionist, if it won't be noticeable, I'll usually leave the mistakes...This cowl is also green, but in the Land of Oz green from MadColor. It's the same green as my Green Spring sweater.
I also worked on my Light in Shadows shawl....It's in Zen Yarn Garden Silk Singles and the yarn is so beautiful to work with..I just ordered a shawl kit from them...
I'm debating whether I want to head to NETA SPA at the end of February. I went several years ago...it's a good weekend trip, but it's a long ride (4-5 hours)..and mostly centered around spinning..which I have no interest beyond the fact that it produces yarn...so still not sure...
Nerd Wars starts in 5 days, very excited...it seems as if this break was so much longer than normal, but it wasn't.....just waiting to start some projects....
This past Thursday and Friday, I finally had a full set of students, after 2 weeks of kids being out sick...but the room next door, 3 kids were sick Friday afternoon....so hoping it doesn't go through my room again. We do not really have a February break this year (a 4 day weekend) and it is not for several weeks, so really want the flu to go away.....when there is a break, everyone keeps their own germs and the building can get cleaned...
Today I have to correct papers....grades are due by Thursday.....I hate correcting....
So I have now updated my list with all the WIPs started....look at me the WIP Woman! I am Woman, hear me WIP!!!!!!!
