Out of My Mind, Back in 5 Minutes . . . Or 2 Months

I've definitely got some catching up to do. The start of the school year has been crazy. Too many students, new building, too many students, merging three faculties, too many students. I love the age group I am working with, just think the schedule is a killer. Today my assistant took a day off and I had to deal with 180 students on my own. Enough to make me want to skip blogging again, but fortunately my sister made me promise to update it . . .

At least the books are on the shelves.

I was off to see the Radical Lace and Subversive Knitting exhibit at the Indiana State Museum when last we spoke. I really did go:
















It was pretty cool. I think my 3 muggle friends even enjoyed it. As always, click for bigger images.





Muggle friend Lacy just had her baby Saturday. A healthy girl -- already showered in handknits.

I've been working on my handspun sweater.


I think it's going to be one of those hovering in the background projects for a while.



A big storm went through a few weeks ago.



Neighbor's tree, my yard.










I scored some books at the local library's discard sale for 10 cents each.

A Barbara Walker stitch dictionary, a Kaffe Fassett, Vogue knits, and a traditional Fair Isle book, among others.

Tis the season for stealth knitting. The holidays are fast approaching and I'm busy. I have finished my grandmother's Christmas socks (perfectly safe shown here, as my 88 year old grandparents hate computers and to my knowledge have never even been on the Internet).


The ball band from the yarn fits perfectly, a great way of keeping the washing info together with the socks.

Love that ball band idea, and your sweater is looking good!

Hi Sarah!
What animal is your handspun yarn made from for the sweater? It looks great!
