Crisis over

After this post, you will find that my career as a high school English teacher is secure (despite my tendencies for typos on this blog!)

I am feeling much better (emotionally, I do have a slight cold) since my last post. I have reviewed my bingo sheet, and I am happy to say I have 7 classes to take before I student teach. It would seem that objects in the mirror really are closer than they appear.

I wish I had some FO pictures to share, but alas, I haven't finished any knitting lately. I did finish a very successful (and difficult) short story for class. I wrote it from the point of view of someone with autism. I had it workshoped by the class last night (a humiliating process where the class tells writer what they think a story is about), and it seems I have very little revision to do. Most people not only *got* the story, but they were full of praise for it as well, which is great! Often, workshop means that people pick apart the stories and find lots of fault. I just need to cut a few things and clear up one or two small points.

I should (finally) have my Irish Hiking Scarf finished in the next day or two, and I am working on the Christmas rush of Sweet Mary Janes.

Happy Knitting!

Hey, that's great news about your story! Way to go.

Have you any desire to make "Fetching" from Their a really fast knit. Even for me. I've almost finished them in two days. Thought i'd mention it...ya know, just in case you need some knitting satisfaction!
