Not to be cranky, but I thought the idea of having a magazine subscription was so you got it earlier than the general public. Mere told me she saw the Summer issue of Interweave Knits at least two weeks ago and I just got mine today! Anyone else have that problem? Or care either way?
Going back to work today after the three day weekend was smoother than I expected. After I got home, I straightened up some of the yarn piles and rearranged my needle jars. I have four categories of needles now: the rooster holds the tall straights, metal and wood alike, the seahorse container holds the shorter straights, again, a mix of metal and wood, a clear green vase holds the longer dpns, and a striped metal pencil box holds the short dpns. It's amazing how much fun I had doing that. I did work on the petal bib from One Skein. Thanks to the miracle of online tutorials, I can now purl 2tog through the back loops, although it was a big pain for me to do so.
I really like this idea, both as a way to use some of the piles of fabric (sheets) I've been buying and also as a really cool way to take food to potlucks.
I like these but I doubt I'll make any, although I guess you never know.
Now I'm off to bed so I can get up early for the last SOL test this year. History this time, so no stress for me. I plan to knit another baby hat while proctoring. Our faculty is playing a game of kickball after school as a stress reliever. Fingers crossed that I don't injure myself
