Last night was Jamie's birthday party, so I am now able to reveal her top secret present. About 9 of us made here the Fiesta tea set from Interweave Knits. I made the creamer and a cup and saucer. If I hadn't been working on a collaborative project with eight other knitters, I would have modified the pattern quite a bit, but it's all good. There were even a few tears.
I've made it to the midterm, practically. I have even graded and graded this week. I'm also about to quit my non-teaching job in the next 10 minutes. With 2-weeks notice, of course.
Sooooo, while I do plan on knitting a bit, here's what in the inbox:
- 2 3-page letters to the editor
- 19 4-page reflection papers on "my environmental footprint"
- 11 3-page profile papers
- 6 paragraphs on "how my day would be different if I were illiterate"*
- 12 paragraphs on "my favorite tv show"
*notice the use of the conditional tense there. You can be damn sure there won't be any such usage in said paragraphs. If only that were the case.
