Current Knitting

Well, it has been awhile since I have given an update.  Work has been SUPER busy.  It's the end of the term and I have had students lined up outside my door until four in the afternoon.  If anyone tells you that teachers don't earn their pay, please tell the to get F*^*^*ed for me.
It's a good thing that I have a friend who runs knitting club.  I haven't had time to sit and teach kids knitting since before Thanksgiving.  She jokingly calls me the loser faculty advisor.

I'm super active in my teacher's union and I have was at meetings Fri-Mon.  It was total torture.  I'm not a meeting person and most of the news was grim.  On the bright side, Oregon passed two ballot initiatives to increase taxes on corporations and the wealthy.  About damn time!  My students can continue to be educated.

On the knitting front, I have finished another Baby Surprise Jacket.  My former teaching partner has just had a baby girl.  I found this really cute yarn.  Of course, cute doesn't mean that it's a good yarn to work with.  This yarn was a total bitch to work with.  I ripped that jacket out at least 6 times.  Anyway, all it needs now are buttons.  I'll get those this weekend.

Next on my list is the Carlito Cardigan.  I've started the pattern which begins with knitting a cable pattern.  I'm about 30+ rows into it.  Can't tell if there will be issues or not.

That's about it.  Time to knit....

    I hate when cute yarn bites me in the butt.
    Happy knitting on your cardi.
