Mellow Monday

Despite going to bed way too late last night, I had a wonderful Monday. I thought I'd crash and burn around 2 p.m., but I'm still going strong. One of my students even remarked at how relaxed I seemed, and I told her it was Mellow Monday. She gave me a funny look.

I'm making a version of this for dinner tonight, using what I have and leaving out what I don't. For one thing, I'm adding some potatoes to the onions, along with the other ingredients, hoping that tastes good. Can't imagine it wouldn't, can you?

I stopped for yarn and needles after work today, since I'm going to be teaching an after school knitting class again this year. It was kind of a last minute decision but I figured, what the heck. I'm trying to up the "cool" vibe by calling it Knit Cafe.

I bought about equal amounts of Debbie Stoller's Full O' Sheep yarn for some felted project options, like coasters and i-Pod cases, and Sugar 'n Cream cotton for a washcloth option. (Sorry about the 90 degree off normal photo, but either blogger or my computer is being cranky.) I think middle schoolers will like those colors, don't you?

I did get some of the finished projects washed this weekend, ready for gifting, including this little pink hat. I just love this pattern. And just for fun: Thank you, Ann & Kay, for the super-fantastic link!


  1. I've thought about doing a knitting club, but it won't happen this year! Do you do it alone? Or do you have another adult to help?

    Love the video. I'm sending the link to all my friends!

  2. What great colours for the kids. I haven't taught a kids knitting group in a while. Have fun!
