a few good things February 8, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — katy @ 8:45 am


Today I will mail off my contribution to the Red Scarf Project.  I knit another drop stitch scarf.  This time I used Filatura di Crosa College.  It seems sadly neglected at Granny’s shop, so I figured I would give it a whirl.  It doesn’t have as much yardage as the Stacy Charles Rittrato that I used for a teacher gift so the fringe wasn’t as plush. 


In other exciting or scary news, the district is coming to observe Owen at his school today.  I cast off the last sleeve on his pullover last night but didn’t run the ends.  I showed it to him this morning and he smiled and put his arms up–to put it on.  He knew it was his sweater.  And wanted to wear it.  I ran a few ends and wrote a note to his teachers not to cut any strings!  Today, as the district observes my little boy, he will be wrapped in love and prayers and peaceful thoughts by me!

    I love it that he wanted to wear it – like now! Jbird and I are doing fine. We’re still trying to get into the swing of a routine – not yet there but getting there. The fact that I’m taking a class myself hasn’t helped. And the fact that I’ve discovered I’ve got to go back to college for recertification is going to be a major adjustment.

    Okay… I’m not a mushy person, but that is the sweetest thing I’ve ever heard. Hope all went well, Katy.
