knitting and the life I almost have around it

Thursday, May 11, 2006


Hi y'all!

ok so prac is pretty good! I'm at Kaleen high and i'm in the special ed unit, which is unexpected but wonderful! these kids are just so gorgeous and i'm completely in love with each and every one of them.
tomorrow is dress differently day for autism awareness and i'm going as a bad-ass pirate! Yarrrr!! the boys are so excited, trying to guess what i will be. The loudest guess was 'Sumfink weeeck-ed!' and spot on boys!

i have lent my camera so cant show you the scarf i knit (in 1 1/2 hours) or the cable rib sock that is halfway through the foot. i do however have a picture of the famed pumpkin socks that were knit in Vanuatu (yes, everyone thought i was mad.)

i may never get over self striping sock yarn. I may also (only MAY, am GOOD with money!!) have bought some lorna's laces from in valentine, and perhaps a few books from amazon including elizabeth zimmerman's knitting without tears, knitting rules by yarn harlot (marry me steph!) and knitting vintage socks by dog only knows. they should all arrive after my assessment has finished.. and its developmentally sound!!! promise!!! and i will bring all to SnB for show and tell, promise ^_^

i am well, i am busy, i am out of my mind but joyous! go forth and knit with love in your heart.

Peace out, knit on!

    Avast, Spidey - they be grand socks! Pirate speak now exhausted.

    I want all those books except the Yarn Harlot (mine is due any day now) - sock one by Nancy Bush?

    Glad the placement is going well. :)
