I have so

been knitting. It's not like I can do much else! (Well, I can grade papers...)

The Collar's sweater is about 2 inches from the armhole shaping. So it's more of the same right now, but it is growing.

I have two sock cuffs knit up. It's time for the leg, but I've been focusing on this instead:I want to finish it before Game Boy leaves for Atlanta. It should be enough to keep off the chill for him. I'm working on the hood, as you might be able to see. I'm about 6" away from putting it together and then picking up the stitches for the trim around the hood.

I've also decided what I'm going to do with all of my leftover sock yarns. I had thought baby booties, but (shh, don't tell) I don't really care much about babies. Toddlers, okay, kids, sure, but babies aren't my favorites. If you have a baby, I'm sure that yours is very nice, but I'm done with babies. Anyway this is what I think I'm going to do:
Yes, I'm making miter squares for a blanket. I might wind up with enough sock yarn that I can do a cotton blend one and a wool blend one. I guess it'll be a project for the years. But it'll be fun to remember all of the different socks I have known.

IN other news:
Game Boy had a mild stomach bug. He's going back to school tomorrow morning, and he's glad about it. We make being home boring, although The Wiz would stay home any way.

The Wiz had SCIG today. He also has a rash--luckily, we see his allergist on Thursday. He says it's so itchy and his benedryl isn't working as well as we'd like.

The Collar is busy exploring his options.

I'm just waiting to see what happens, and trying to remember what it was like to not care about what other people think. I think living in the fishbowl is getting to me.

I must have missed something: is The Collar planning to find a new charge or a new job?
I like the sock-blanket idea; sounds cozy!

Best of luck with the job[s] and I hope the kids are all well!

Well, I didn't really make a big announcement or anything here, but, yes, The Collar is looking for a new position. He did a lot at the church of which he is currently in charge and it's time to start looking for new challenges.

I'm rooting for warmer weather, housing provided (I'm not ready to look for the third house to buy--2 times in 6 years is enough!), and a desperate need for biology teachers.

I wonder if I'm asking too much! :)
