Yes. You read that correctly! I have been student teaching for two weeks, and yet I have only taught 3 days. The other days were filled in with snow days, half days, and seminars. I can only wish teaching would be this easy in the real world!
Well. Because of the snow day, I am able to get work done! So here are my current projects.
This is the current progress of my sunshine scarf, I am working slow on it because a bunch of my students are asking for scarves and hats. Whatever money I make off of those sales will be going towards the fundraiser for the Florida trip. Truthfully... I just have a feeling that unless I get a comp. ticket, there is no way I will be able to raise enough money... sigh....
Well, next up is this chunky green cowl. I want to find a couple of those long wood buttons. I think that would go perfectly with this cowl! Easy, moss stitch. Just taking a while because I don't put effort into it!
Next up is one of the scarves I am making for one of my students. Double knit, music themed. I am almost halfway done. If you have ever done a double knit scarf, then you know it takes twice as long to do than most scarves. Just because you are knitting up two fabrics instead of just one. But I like it, and I believe the kid likes it. So I am happy!
Lastly, a purse I sewed up over the weekend. The fabric is from an idea of a quilt that I was going to make my father. But I couldnt find enough of the fabric, and I felt it was too busy. So I made it into a purse!
It is also the interior of the purse.
I also have to find a cute wooden button to use on it. I just have not found the right one yet...
I absolutely love the pattern of this purse. I plan on making a whole bunch of these purses in different fabrics.
Now for knitting the rest of the night!

- 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!!
