starting

Since I finished my Deceit Curl yesterday, I decided to start something new. The Curl still blocking, by the way, I will get you a picture tomorrow, I hope! The thing I started is a poncho named Claire. So far it doesn’t look like much.

The yarn is a Rowan cotton that was on sale this summer, so this is not a winter garment, I don’t think. I wasn’t sure at first about knitting this poncho but I asked on Facebook and everyone there said I should knit it. People on Facebook don’t lie, right?

You may have noticed that I haven’t mentioned my Textiles class or doing any prepping. That is because last year was my younger son’s fifth grade year at our elementary school where I lead, co-lead, or just helped in that class. My older son started there in 2007, so I was in that class for 10 years. I think that is the longest I have ever done anything. It’s a bit weird to not be cutting out hats and pin cushion fabric this year. From afar, it seems like things are going well without me, so that’s good! I hope it continues on in my absence. Life goes on!
