sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things

Why did I think that?

There is no way I can fit 11 more balls of yarn in that basket! Even after I get the small stuff out of the way. So, that Foliage sits in a bag on my left, the basket on my right, and I am the queen of my little yarn-y kingdom.

The next deadline is for the swatches. I suppose I will make one today. Class response seems to be better with samples. I will make a class handout to go with those as I make them. I also need to transcribe one of my student’s notes for the unpatterned sweater class. This was quite a surprise to me. I never expected folks would need so many notes! I made my second or third sweater with no pattern, and it’s a natural to me now as breathing. See yarn, select needles, cast-on. I *should* have made really good notes for them as I made the sweaters, but it was a rush job trying to get the demos done.

Which reminds me, I need to make notes on what I did yesterday on Dh’s sweater, and continue to do so as I work on it. Then I can hand those out at the first class meeting.

Here is another thing that surprised me, but really shouldn’t have. We did not say that the students needed to have some experience. I had students who had no idea how to make a gauge swatch. Or use DPNs.

It sounds like I am put off by this class. In truth, I have enjoyed it immensely, and am looking forward to the next one. In fact, we told the students last night, they were free to audit the next class if they did not “get it”. Well, I should say *I* told them, and Martha agreed with me, LOL! Anyway, we have one more meeting left, then I am through teaching until January, when I have the top-down raglan and a short-row workshop.
