Sports trumps knitting; Secret Pal rules!
Because I live in New England and am a sports fan, not much knitting has happened in a few days. I gave my officemate a lesson on Friday and got her started on a ribbon scarf. Might be tricky as a first project - the ribbon is wide and it's easy to poke through it. But, she caught on pretty fast and made some progress on it over the weekend. I also loaned my daughter's teacher my copy of Stitch and Bitch. Guess I'm a knitting evangelist now.
Why not much knitting of my own? On Saturday and Sunday I was nursing a case of Red Sox fever. We had friends over for Saturday's game (knitting around barbecue unadvised), and yesterday my husband and son went to the Patriots game, leaving me in sole charge of baby daughter. Thus knitting group was out, and I was too nervous watching the Sox victory to pick up the needles. I'm keeping the faith.
