...I had a blog.
The end of April through June is always a busy time for subbing and tends to require a break from the blog. What I wasn't expecting was how much my summer nanny position was going to take out of me. It's been a while since I've worked a 9-5 (well technically I never have since the daycare I was 8-4:30 but close enough). Even though I had Friday's off, there was always so much to do those days to catch up from during the week (including going to the beach, which I certainly did not do enough this summer because of the bad weather at the end of August).
Nannying ended mid-August and in the weeks following I spent most of my days inventorying my yarn stash. I'm not done yet but I have tallied over 22 MILES of yarn hidden in my bedroom! I also found and finished some forgotten projects that I haven't photo-ed yet.
Of course I've been knitting this summer. I never stop! I've also been working on some designs but haven't touched them in a week or so. School has started up again but I haven't had any subbing. I have been keeping myself busy though on Wednesdays... I've started working at my favorite LYS Village Knitter. I'm having so much fun teaching new knitters, crocheters and just hanging out with the customers. My first lesson was teaching 2 young girls to crochet. They happened to be the daughter and niece of one of my favorite high school teachers. Awesome and awkward at the same time. One of them was lefty though so that was quite interesting.
Here's a sneak peak at what you'll see next time...
