Yet an other busy weekend.
I taught a finishing class on Saturday at Olde Peddler Wools. I had 7 students and we covered a lot of material in 2 hours. It was a lot of fun and I never got a question that I couldn't answer. I know that I'm a cocky knitter (gauge? we don't need no stinking gauge) and sometimes it comes back to bite me, but I didn't realize how comfortable I am with my knitting until then. When asked a specific question, I can answer it confidently from my own experience (usual disclaimer involved... there are no knitting police and everyone has their own preference. I always say this is what I do and I try to explain why). I learned some things about the teaching process and I'll try to apply those to the Fixing Mistakes class I'm teaching next month.
I think that's why I like knitting... I don't know everything (still need to work on that crochet steek...) and it constantly keeps me challenged. While I might get bored with a specific project, I am constantly learning things about knitting.
Which is why I spent all weekend crocheting (heehee).
The Granny Rectangle Afghan is done (no picture as Matt borrowed my camera and I have no idea where it is. Probably with his glasses, wallet, keys, heart rate monitor watch... or what ever else he lost this week). I worked until I ran out of yarn. I probably had enough yarn to do one more round, but wasn't sure about how much my border was going to use. It's fine, yes would I have liked it bigger... absolutely, but that one extra round still wouldn't make it as big as I would've liked. Either way, it's a pretty afghan and is more "lapghan" than afghan. A nice "use up stash" project.
I have the second sleeve underway for the cropped crochet cardigan. I hope to have it finished up today. I want to get some things done, as I feel like I'm juggling a lot of projects right now and I feel very scattered. Oh and I really really need to get Matt's Because I Love You sweater done.
There's just never enough time!!! So I'm off to see how much stuff I can get done. (hmmm, why can't he lose the vaccuum???)
