About Me

My photo
Illinois, United States
I am a band director at five private schools in Kankakee. Music is a big part of my life, but knitting and crafting are right up there too. I own a ridiculous stash of yarn, which I am slowly using... and replacing with better yarn... I tend to knit and crochet a lot, in class, out of class, while watching tv, while driving, pretty much constantly. I have been involved with crochet romantically for 15 years, and involved with knitting for 11 years. They sometimes get jealous of each other. I think its funny. Along with knitting and crocheting, I quilt, spin (drop spindle) and design patterns!!

Ohhhhhh school.

School starts in a little over a week. This will be a tough semester. Senior recital, practicum, music history 3, and handing over my recording studio job. (that will take hours of training)

But for now, I am trying to finish off all the projects that I can before school starts.

Heres one I started and finished today. In my moms sewing room, which was 102 degrees. inside. But I made it through. and drank a huge glass of water after....
