Beginning of Semester Blues

Well, the academic semester is one week old and already I am longing for the freedom of summer. I just can't motivate myself to get serious about studying. I am student teaching, at my late age, in the library of a very large high school (2200 students), taking Spanish 204 with lots of young undergrads and taking multicultural children's literature via a web course. This all cuts into my knitting and coffee time, of course. I'd much rather knitting, as my license plate holder on my car says!

I tried to load a photo of the cute baby hat a WTBCLB member made for the blanket-baby. Unfortunately, the loading didn't work here in the SLIS computer lab. Will have to try from at home. This also depressed me since I wanted to share how cute the hat is.

As for the blanket, all the squares were sewn together by the lovely elderly Danish woman and I will pick it up tonight. I am wavering between knitting on a lace edging and knitting on a simple stockinette edging that folds on itself. Hmmmm, which is faster??? I saw the mother to be at church on Sunday and while happy, she looks ready for the hospital!!

For those of you who live on the academic calendar, I hope your semester beginning is more motivated than mine!!
