So I really didn't do much this past week....was sick two days and then working on the aforementioned correcting and grading....
Yesterday I did take a class at Stitches United about Selbu Mittens...it was the first class I've ever taken and it was pretty good. I left a few minuted early to head to the March for Our Lives at the capital in Hartford. It was awesome...I'll have a post about it later this week....I'll also post about Stitches and the haul...but here is a picture of my mitt(s) before I left class...
Oh I did also put a couple of rows on the cowl of my Throwback Poncho, but not enough to take a picture of it...
and I pulled out my Kai-mei socks the day I stayed home sick...yeah there is a dropped stitch quite a few rows down, I'm going to have to rip it out...it's back in time out...
So I guess that is about it...not too exciting this week...come back and visit me later in the week....
