Side Trip

I've spun a little, knit a little...but mostly we took a little sewing jaunt. Last year, my 8th grade students dyed fabric squares in art class to use this year in their Work & Family class. Every year they make patchwork pillows in W & F. A lot of the students chose other fabrics, so there were plenty of leftover squares. I volunteered to make a quilt for our annual AR auction (students use points gained from independent reading to bid on items). Erin wanted to learn how to quilt, so this weekend we very carefully laid out the squares, making sure each one was right where we wanted it. Then we proceeded to thoroughly mix them up as we sewed. Much fun indeed. I think it turned out pretty well, all things considered.

The King

I'm almost done with sock #2. My second sock syndrome was out of the norm. Mine was: "Oh boy...I know what I'm doing this time." :-) Since I have no new pictures, I thought you would enjoy King Mittens.
