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!!

Getting back into the knit of things

Its been a tough semester so far. Practicum has been nuts, getting ready for this recital even more so. In the past two months I have had strep twice, and salmonella poisoning. So I missed school for a week straight. But now I'm healthy, caught up in school work, and attempting to get where I need to get with practicing.

But for now, heres some knitting.
This is the Heart to Heart Beaded Scarf by Sivia. I started it today, and so far I love it. I cant get a good picture of it, and it looks messy cause it isnt blocked yet, but its getting there!
Sideways heart!
You can kinda see the side pattern here.
And I finished this up today, Demiluna Shawl by Lhevinne Amor. I used Jojoland Melody, and I really love how the stripes worked with the pattern.
This is a shawl that I actually think I'm going to be wearing in the near future.
Welp. Off to bed. Got a long day of classes, and then off to Carlyle high school so I can continue instructing the drum line... wooooo

Knit on.
