I got a call the other day from M asking if I could come help in her 3rd grade class. They had been to a pumpkin farm and she now had 23 3rd graders that needed help cutting the tops off their pumpkins and counting the seeds etc.. I didn't know there were so many math lessons you could teach with a pumpkin!! It was so fun to meet M's students and to see her in her classroom! She is a natural teacher and you can tell that the students and staff all love her!!
R was also recruited to help since he doesn't have classes on Friday. He has always been great with kids and seemed quite natural in the classroom as well. This particular little boy told me I looked as young as his teacher!! I think he was my favorite student......
I got a box from The Loopy Ewe with a few skeins of yarn; a go knit pouch and a fun sock pattern. I purchased two new yarns this time... a skein of Perfect Day yarn in Night Tide. This is dyed by Sarah who I met at the Spring Fling. I love the combination of blue/gray and white in this skein. The other skein is Numma Numma saucy in the Saturday Shoe Shopping colorway. This is dyed by another gal, Allen, who was also at the Fling. Yes, I am often drawn to blues.. why do you ask?
Sophie thought the best part was the box that she killed and destroyed! She is just very lucky that I had already emptied it of my treasures!
I have cast on a new project... A pair of Fetching fingerless mitts for K in Berroco Touche. It is 100% cotton, which I am hoping her hands will be able to handle. We figured out a little late last year that her skin was quite sensitive to wool. I was hoping to have these done this weekend, but it took me several attempts to get the right needle size. I think I'm on track now, though!! K is coming home in a few hours and I'm looking forward to some knitting time while she's here. Who knows.. I may get them done yet!
Sumo has started playing for short periods of time with Sophie!! I think it may be a major break through!! (Ok, it may look like they are fighting, but trust me, this is playing!!)
In the end, Sophie goes overboard trying to lick Sumo's face, which is a sign of submission in dogs. She gets a bit carried away, however, and then can't seem to help herself and takes a little nibble of his ear. Too funny. She was over 30 pounds at the vet the other day, so has doubled her weight since we got her! No wonder she is looking so big!!
Well, only a few hours and K will be home! Better get a few things done so I can enjoy the few short hours that she'll be here!!
Until Next Time.....
