Out of the blue got into Legend of Korra and have been knitting on this Epic Blue Scarf From Hell (Using the Palindrome pattern from Ravelry) while mainlining episode after episode at night. While cables are easy, they are time consuming, and it’s easy to flub when there’s some incredible fight scene or new political drama happening on screen. The scarf has been an ongoing project for several months now, though sometimes it feels like years, and I am still not halfway through. The aim is to get it done by Christmas, but since it was LAST Christmas I was aiming for, I feel like my due date’s pretty much in the clear.
Also been reading, cooking, and panicking over the oncoming preparations for Back to School Night this Thursday, much of which involved fixing other people’s work and completely demolishing my own to rewrite. Furthermore, no one’s feeding the teachers, so at least this teacher has decided to bring an apple pie for the ranks (not parents; those guys are on their own). Just today I finished my own work, at long last, and now I can have at least one day off before beginning work for October. This nonsense of newsletters and calendars and so on took us less than a week to finish over the summer, yet I get the feeling that if I want to get March’s work done, I’d better start now.
I also made another shortbread. Came out pretty good, too.
