What a fantastic week it was!
If it had not been for my dear husband driving me up to NH, caring for the kids -- and me! -- I think I would be one very sad lady for missing such a great event. But fortunately for me, I married a fantastic guy!
I briefly noted yesterday that I went to the doctor's for my visit. He was pleased that I did not over do it and regress in my healing. He still hasn't lifted my driving restrictions of 20 minutes, so I still cannot resume teaching classes. So, while I wait and heal I'll work on the baby blanket pattern I'm designing for the Adult Ed class planned for September in Stamford, and practice some more of my knitting.
Yes, I have been working on that knitting ... doing a scarf. Something simple, you know. (And for the record, no, I'm not defecting from crochet!) With this scarf I noticed that my loops on the hook, er, needle was increasing. So I got my "increases" under control -- you know, by using a crochet technique called "fudging," ... but I'm not sure about that half-missing row! What happened there? Eish!! ... Good thing this is just practice! Yesterday, I ordered myself two books on knitting as I do want to learn a bit more, if anything, to aid those knitters that come to me to learn crocheting. I figure, if I know where they're coming from, it will make it easier to teach them. :)
