I am at the point where I am resentful of my job because it interferes with my knitting. Mostly what I want to do is knit interspersed with spinning when I need a break from knitting.
I had been bringing my knitting to work with me. It was going well; the kids would be working on their math and I would walk around the class knitting and helping them at the same time. Next, was knitting in meetings. What could be more perfect? I can knit and pay attention to the topics (actually, it really helps me pay attention better). Well, my down fall happened when I started knitting during my plan time. Lots of planning happened; however, it was not the teaching planning that go done. I have had to leave my knitting at home, mostly because it is the end of the semester and I really need to focus on getting kids to pass and grading.
I need a wealthy relative to leave me a ton of money so that I can work part-time and knit the rest. Anyway, I'm off to a union meeting today and tomorrow and I will be knitting a ton. (I'm also really done with my dealings in state union politics and knitting during meetings helps me cope).
On the knitting front, I have been studying round work ad nauseum. I'm really understanding the construction and how to transition between stocking stitch and lace. Here is my latest bit. This, again, is only the center but I'm very happy with the change to the lace from stocking. I'm about to embark on the next part of the motif and hopefully, in a few weeks I can show this pattern as a completed shawl.
