68 Days Until
School is back in session.
How sad is that...counting the first day of summer vacation as the 68th day until the first day of the next school year. Obviously I'm a mommy, not a kid.
It's been a busy week or so and thanks to some random wonkiness with my camera, I have NO pictures to document any of it. I'm hoping to beg some photos from other school parents so that I at least have Clare's class play immortalized.
I did finish my teacher knitting...the Binary scarf (presented to Mr. M on a Heat Advisory day...) and a big pile of Mason Dixon Dishcloths, Doily Dishcloths and Linen Dishtowels. Unphotographed of course. My hands are killing me from so much cotton knitting on metal needles.
Last night, as part of a summer vacation celebration, I dug out the leaf drop stitch sweater that I was working on before the teacher-knitting crunch. Sure, it's mostly mercerized cotton, but the looser stitch, double stranding and teeny bit of vicose in the yarn seems to make it much easier on the hands than the kitchen cotton.
Scooting now, I have to finish up some reports related to our school fundraiser and if I hurry I can walk the kids over to the school and let them play in the playground while I "borrow" the school photocopier.
