Knitting (and spinning! The Good, the Bad, and the UGLY)

Happy Sunday!
I've been remiss at posting. Sorry. Life has been (when is it not??) hectic. We began our semester on the 6th of January. I'm teaching a sheltered (for ESOL students) World History class for the first time. It's grea having a new challenge and relearning my history. However, it's also been time-consuming. I spent three hours at school onSaturday trying to catch up. Got some good work done, but it will be a busy semester.

As for knitting, I haven't had the oncentration to pick up cul-de-sac. I have been working on cheesylove from knitty. It'a a great V-Day sweater, and I had bought the yarn a few months back. I'm working it in grey Wool Ease and the pink I have in Lana G. mohair. Yum!

Tuesday Daye and I are beginning our Fiber Arts Club at school. Any locals want to come out and help teach knitting? Email me. So far, we're expecting about 6 teachers and a few students. Yippee! I was also offered a paying! job teaching knitting in the Adult Community Ed program in the fall. But with starting my Specialist, I doubt I'll have time. It was certainly a compliment for it to be offered to me though. Something I'll keep in the back of my mind (he was offereing $20 per hour and I could make my own schedule. Not bad, huh?)

I went out and saw "Chasing Liberty" yesterday with a friend. Cute movie! The male lead, Goode, was hot! I don't say that often, but yum!! It's a fun movie that gets my recommendation. :)

This morning I switched over to Mozilla Firebird. It was time for a change, I really like it. The pages load much more quickly and I like the Stumble! feature which generates random pages according to your specific interests. Try it out! :)

Anyone out there watch "Six Feet Under"? I've gotten hooked! I've been renting the episodes from Blockbuster. I'm halfway through the first season. I told Maria about the series, and she's already gone out and rented the complete first season. Can't wait to see more.

Well, that's about it for now. Take care and drop me a note anytime. :)
