YOP #39

This week has been busy, but not busy with seems as if my crafting has been relegated to the weekends lately...Tuesday night was Open House..about 1/3 of my parents showed up..Friday night I went to the HS football game...see, some previous students are Cane-ettes..the majorettes for the team/band...and they do a whole half-time show.  The band is the biggest HS band in CT....and "my girls" have been asking me to come see them since last year....when I went over to say hi..there was a lot of screaming involved..and hugs...I love these kids..

That's another one of my girls, front and center..she's graduating a year early!  What a hard worker...I sat and talked to her mom for a proud of this group of kids....I looped with them, so I had them in second and third grade..and I've kept in contact with many of them, even some of the boys..although they don't scream and come running to hug me when I see them..;) It's a dignified nod and smile usually...

Saturday I spent the day yarn shop crawling! I managed 4 of the 7...I don't plan on doing the other three today...and I was pretty good about purchases...Stitches East is in two weeks, Rhinebeck the week after and then NEFF 2 weeks after that...I'll do some separate posts on the shops...

So what have I worked on?  I put a few stitches on some things here and there, but not much else has changed..I need to add a few things...2 baby things, a garter for a wedding, and some possible Christmas orders....

I did start and finish a project last night when I got home from the crawl..a big squooshy flower power hat, but I'll save that for Friday..and I need to get pics of it...I made it while watching the mid-season finale of Outlander..
