The Really Last Day of Work - for ME! :-)
So today marked the very last day of work for me. Papers filed, folders reviewed, room packed up. Just as I was working on the slide presentation for our faculty lunch, one of my former students, Ismael, came back to see me as he often does. This time he came bearing a gift (or something like that). What did he give me?....a ticket to his high school graduation! I taught him in the fifth grade. I am so proud of him. He will be the first one in his family to attend college, and he is going to be a teacher, and he got a full scholarship! I'm so proud of him, so yes, I will attend his graduation ceremony tonight.
Now since this blog is supposed to really be about crafting, I have a confession to make. I was supposed to be resting my hands from crocheting, but yesterday I couldn't resist picking up a knit project that I had started before I was crocheting non-stop. It is the only WIP I have, and really it's more like a practice piece.
I want to finish it because I don't want to forget the little I was learning about knitting, and because the yarn I chose was from my scrap pile, and it is too hot of a yarn to work with much longer. I have three more inches to knit then I can sew this baby up! I see that my tension was too loose on the ribbing at the beginning, but there's nothing I can do about that now. I'll just learn from my mistakes.
Have a great weekend!
