I can’t believe I’ve already been to trivia 29 times!

Reading:

I have to start by mentioning the book I finished last night. I read One Christmas Eve by Shannon Stacey. She is one of my favourite authors and she definitely didn’t disappoint with this book either- I read it in one sitting! I was laughing out loud by page five at the banter these two main characters had. I loved the supporting cast and especially liked how the author didn’t rely on miscommunication for the conflict!! For once I wasn’t left yelling at the characters to grow up! It had a satisfying ending and I really liked how the two characters would read together. My dream is to have a guy who will happily read on the other end of the couch🤣

Teaching:

It was another pretty good day as we had no physical violence. We got through a journal today and one of my little guys wrote a page and a half!!! So cool to see them start doing more:)

We played around the world and then went and did relays in the gym. I really need to think up some more movements for the relays. Today I could only think of horse galloping and frog jumping!

This afternoon we started making our poppies for the Remembrance Day wreaths. We had a discussion about all the things we love doing and the fact that we say thank you to those who have served our country and made it possible for us to do these things. I actually got to show them a veteran on the city website who just happened to be my dad!

Knitting:

This past weekend I bought myself a beechwood swift and a Knitter’s Pride Mega Yarn Winder. I finally set it up tonight to wind my shawl yarn and one of the belts broke immediately:( I have contacted the shop and hopefully they will send me a new one! I want to play with my new toy!!!

I have spent some time knitting on my current market bag, but kind of feel like I had better leave it and start on the shawl. Does anyone have a suggestion of a good shawl pattern that uses about 600 yards of light fingering?

  1. Check out Martina Behm’s patterns. She has lovely ones that use about that much yarn. If you’re looking for something fancier look at Romi Hill’s. They tend to be very lacy and just gorgeous.

    1. It was very cool to see my dad up there. We just wondered about the fact that no one asked him for his permission!
      They didn’t want me last night either- I didn’t know much!
