I am working on a couple of new projects. I am trying to learn how to knit a sock using the magic loop method. This is my second attempt. I'm kind of winging it, using an online video class and a book. Between the two, I'm trying to figure it out. Love knitting! And socks are one of the things I have most wanted to learn.
I've been stitching a little too. I started Lizzie Kate's Dog Lessons for People. This will be for Jake. He loves it and thinks the sayings are hilarious. I've stitched very little for him so I'm excited that he wants this particular design to hang in his room. I bought the design at Dixie Darlin' during a recent Pigeon Forge getaway weekend. They had a model of it stitched on PTP Relic, and it was gorgeous! I bought enough fabric to stitch both this and the Cat Lessons version. (sorry for the crooked photo. I'm posting from my iPhone and can't figure out how to edit it.
In other news, I transferred jobs about two weeks ago. Some of my regular visitors might remember that I was a school counselor working in two elementary schools. A counseling position opened at our middle school this summer and I decided it would be a good move for me. I am thrilled to be at one school every day but it was very sad for me to leave my elementary schools. I miss my little kiddos and the wonderful staff and friends from there. But I am settling into the middle school nicely. I have worked there before and still know quite a few of the teachers. Today was our first day of school and it went really well.
Time to fix supper although I would love to just take a nap!
