I have done a small bit of knitting. I just made this scarf with some handspun. It was a fun accomplishment to take some of the yarn I spun from roving and knit it into a scarf. The yarn was actually a lot nicer then I thought. I really didn’t do a bad job and I am happy to have a warm scarf to show for it.
Yarn: Handspun from corriedale roving
Needles: size 9 (brittany wood)
Pattern: CO 22, knit 1×1 for about 6 plus feet. 😉
Here is a little something I was knitting on before Christmas but didn’t finish. I probably will hibernate it until November and then finish it. No sense finishing it now. I am just in the process of sewing on ornaments, then need to stuff it and crochet a bottom for it.
My new class started last week. I already have made some waves in it. The class was not allowed a break and after 5 hours, I got the worst headache last Monday. The teacher told us that class didn’t get a break. After a phone call to the department division, the counseling off, and then to the dean of teacher’s, I was able to get a break for the class. It will be announced tomorrow. 🙂
I am unhappy about another thing. Apparantly Monday labs are due Wednesday, but people who have Wednesday lab time have theirs due the following Monday. So I get 1 day to work on a lab and they get 4. I don’t find that fair at all and am going to work on how to get equality for that.
My work scheduled has finally lightened, the money was nice, but I am happy to have a break from cashiering. I really needed the break to get down to studying. I already have my first test on Wednesday.
Finally, girl scouts is getting interesting. I am starting up my own troop in March after cookie sales (going on now.) It is a good thing.
