I survived!

I survived!

The car was repaired (the dealership took full responsibility), and I had a great day getting to see the kids at school.  We even took time to do a little shopping, and that meant checking out some new yarn that Walmart had (I didn't purchase any and I think that may have confused the kids a bit. lol)

To the right is my daughter wearing her St. Mary costume.  She was nervous about speaking in front of such a large group of people but she did quite well.  I was really proud of her.

See the rope around her head and waist?  I made that.  See the trim on the head piece, and along the bottom of her robe?  That's crocheted!

During lunch duty one of the girls in my daughter's class came up to me and wanted to know how to "anchor" her stitches (meaning how to build rows), so I showed her.  Then the little girl went and grabbed a piece of paper and wrote down what I told her:

"yern over put hook in
 yern over put hook out
 yern over agen and pull threw all"

Can you guess the stitch she's trying to learn how to make?  Yep, it's the half-double. 

I loved getting to spend some quite moments reading through Pauline's book yesterday, and nearly finished another scarf.  I think tomorrow I'll update the totals for our 30 Scarves in 30 Days Challenge

For now, I need to prepare for my classes , and get out to Vote.  I hope to do it this morning, and to do so with my children.  I want to help pass onto them the responsibility of exercising our freedom to do so
