Norcross Elementary has the most wonderful new Principal-Dr. Dora Hill!!! After four years of pure H.E.double Hockey Sticks (when was the last time you heard that one? LOL) we now have a lovely woman who encourages her staff, goes out of her way to make things pleasant and peaceful and is a pure gem to work for! But let me tell you what else she has done. I went to her yesterday and asked if a group of us teachers and staff could perhaps use the Media Center one day a week for a knitting class I wanted to offer. She not only said yes, she said put a notice in the mailboxes at school, invite all the staff to join and then she commissioned me to knit something for her!!! She said she'd be happy to have us there for an hour or so once a week and she'd be sure the AC/Heat would be on in the MC for us!!!! So now, I introduce THE NORCROSS KNITTERS CLUB. So far I have about 10 people interested in joining the beginners knitting class, some experienced knitters who want to hone skills and work on long forgotten projects, a couple of crocheters (always good to learn another skill too if you don't know how....I do so there will be lots of help for them too) and hopefully we will all become better friends and co-workers! I'll be working on the handout with supply list, etc. today. It should prove to be a lot of fun!!

Gone Forever Or What????

I know, I know, I've been away for awhile but without computer and access to my photo file I am just not the same person! Hope I will have it back soon...still being repaired. I am thinking I might as well get a new one at this rate!
Anyway, went to the AKG meeting on Thursday and actually got to work on the the largest sock in the world-now being knit. It's awesome. I did my bit and signed the book...what fun!
Also bought some new sock yarn but am making a baby sweater and cap from it. Is it ever going to be darling! Sooooo not the traditional baby colors, but that is what makes it great. It's called Regia(Design Line-Kaffe Fassett) Partie colorway. Really nice Autumn colors. It was a bit pricey for my pocketbook right now, but I had to have it you know. Only takes 2 balls though to make the sweater and cap, so that's not too bad.
I'm here in SC as my Mom is in the hospital. It's difficult being away from Tommy-I miss him but I guess the break won't hurt either of us...not like I'm 1000 miles away or anything. I'm just here for a few days and only 2 hours away. Should be back home on Monday night though.
I loved knitting up the new sock yarn I got from KP...very nice yarn indeed. I made socks for Shannen.
I have a swap I'm doing with another lady from Wearables on Wet Canvas, but can't say right now as to what I will be sending her...she might read the blog!! Anyway, it's cute and I hope she will like it!!!
That's about it from here. I'm packing up my knitting bag and then off to the hospital to sit for the day...Thank God for the knitting that will keep me occupied for the long hours!
