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

Summer is over.

Elementary and middle schools in Hall County began their pre-planning this morning. High schools begin tomorrow. I've slowly been getting my room ready over the last couple of weeks, so I think I'm ahead of the game. This is good, because I lose four hours on Tuesday afternoon to help register kids at our county's International Center. Then on Wednesday, we have Open House. Tonight, however, Maria and I head up to Tennessee to register for our Education Specialist (last degree before PhD) courses at Lincoln Memorial University. Tonight. Six until eight or nine PM. Two-and-a-half hour drive. Which puts us back home around 11:30 PM. Yuck! So much for getting to bed early the night before work begins.

As for knitting, I've done some more work on my lace scarf. That's about it. I did, however, pick up something new. Needlepoint. At PINS, I started asking questions about the techniques from the other members. I went over to Michael's and bought a little learn how to kit with three cats on it. I also bought a kit for stitching the front of a glasses case/cell phone holder with hearts on it. I've already finished the first cat picture (it really was little--2 days) and started on the case. I love learning new things!

I'm off to get the day started. Lots to do!!!
