... it is knitting club! Today saw 7 young ladies, one new and the rest returning from last week. For a full hour they sat and knit (one purled) and chatted. That is my favorite part of the group. The kids talk among themselves and tend to not realize that an "authority" figure is listening. I learn so much about my students just by quietly eavesdropping on their casual conversation. It probably isn't eaves dropping since they are aware that I am in the room. They talk about boys, other kids and, of course, their teachers. Totally fascinating.
As a group they would prefer if I stop announcing how many blanket squares we have (zero) so I told them to get busy knitting to get this blanket off the ground. It was suggested that I set a deadline so I did. We want the first blanket done by the winter break and will ask the church across the street if they have someone who could use it.
On the home front, one Violin Teacher Gauntlet is done and the second started. I would like to have it finished by the end of the long weekend but we will see if life gets in the way. The first Teacher Scarf is also almost done and should see bind off tomorrow.
Here's hoping that your "day before Thanksgiving" is a good one. Any bets on how long it will take me to get home on Wednesday? Hint: a fast commute is about 35 minutes, a "normal" commute runs closer to 45 minutes. Last Friday it took me almost an hour. The day of the Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting it can take well over an hour and I do not go anywhere near the tree. Any takers? (No prizes ... just fun.)
