Yarn Along and Busy Days

Standard

I’m getting back into the school routine – work all day, then come home and collapse. So far this school year I’m in Biology and Algebra II classes and mainly help students with these subjects. We’ve had some sweltering hot days but have had much cooler temperatures this week, which makes it more conducive to paying attention and learning!

I’ve become involved with a couple knitting projects – a shawl knit-along and a test knit for a cowl.

My shawl is the Quaker Ridge Shawl pattern and the yarn is Madelintosh Pashmina, a very soft yarn.

Along with knitting, I’ve been doing a lot of reading. I finished Summerland by Elin Hilderbrand recently and just started Sweet Talk by Julie Garwood last night. I like to read fiction for pleasure so I can relax and enjoy it – and I don’t have to concentrate to be sure I don’t miss anything important!

Aren’t grand kids great?!?

I’m trying!!! to link my blog to Ginny’s Yarn Along but I have to learn how! Maybe I should get on my computer instead of my iPad because I know how to copy and paste there…
