Sorry for no post yesterday. I got home last night and just went straight to bed!
Yesterday’s run was slightly better, not in speed, but in feeling. About halfway through I got into a rhythm. The new music suggestions from thedancingrunner really helped to get me going and keep me moving:)
My plan had been to come home from work and get a workout in, but my mom arrived home so we visited instead. It made the run my only exercise of the day though:(
It was not a stellar morning ( and I hope I don’t hear from parents), but the afternoon improved. I’ve decided that I will only worry about this until Tuesday.
It was Meet the Creature, oops Teacher night tonight so I had to be back at work for 6pm and dressed up. In fact, I had to be back by 5pm to try and get a parking spot:(. It is not my favourite night as I’m not great at small talk, but it’s always interesting to see how the parents act with their parents. I had the brainstorm just before it started to put out puzzle pieces and have the parents write a note to their child for a class “quilt”. I’m hoping it will help with the separation anxiety some of my students are having. Overall, the night was pretty successful, if only because I got the laminating all cut out, sorted and stored:).
I finished the teacozy! It was super easy ( with being a basketweave pattern) and seemed so quick after the afghan. The pattern is from KnitOneBrewOne and is called “David the basketweave tea cosy”. The only change I made to the pattern was to do six repeats of the basketweave pattern before decreasing, instead of just four repeats. I also did not do the pompon on top as my mom didn’t want one. I am very happy with it because the colour is gorgeous! Sorry, my teapot isn’t the same size so it’s not a great photo.
The yarn just a random ball I had in my stash with no label on it. I’m given yarn sometimes for the knitting group I run with the kids at school, so I do have some yarn I know nothing about. This yarn though has such a pretty pearlescent sheen to it! It really helped to make a pretty boring teacozy a little bit cuter:). Now I just have to hope it fits my mom’s new teapot as I didn’t have it to try on as I went and my teapot is a weird shape.
Well, I’m off for another day of work, so I’ll be back tonight hopefully to tell you about my day.
