I used my new project sleeve, a Christmas gift from a friend, and highlighter tape and I still managed to mess up. I decided the yarn was a bit too bulky for the pattern so ripped it all the way out. While I decide whether to use it to make a Gaptastic cowl or a striped scarf, aka Noro striped scarf, I have gone back to knitting the Guernsey Wrap. Which is probably the project I should work on anyway.
As I was scrolling through my phone photos, I saw this one of hats drying after blocking and couldn't remember if I'd shared it yet. It's a number of hats knit from the Tea Collection, knit in December. Some were gifted and some are in the gift drawer. They were quick and fun to knit and I will definitely revisit the pattern collection.
I also can't remember if I posted about the succulents I gave as gifts, using some demitasse cups I had squirreled away. I think they look adorable, and I hope to do this easy craft again.
Gracie looks so different in each of these pictures, even though they were all taken within one month's time.
Despite her unwillingness to cuddle, she is very attached to me, following me from room to room if I'm gone for very long. Such a sweet, strange cat she is.
Tomorrow and Friday are exam days and the end of the first semester, which means I'll have all new students beginning next Wednesday. It's a busy time, closing out grades and planning for the new semester, but the up side is believing I'll somehow be more successful in the new semester than I was in this one. It's another fresh start is what I'm trying to say, which is one of the benefits of teaching that I really enjoy.
Hope the rest of your week is a good one.
