“On the needles” for my first project for Dewey’s Knit-A-Long is a very colorful scarf and hat. The scarf is made with giant needles (size 19!), so it’s not taking too long to finish, even for a busy second grade teacher. The hat may take me a little longer. It’s knit on smaller needles, and I’ll have to use double pointed needles to shape the crown. Never used DPNs before, but have been wanting to learn! It’s all an adventure, Chris!
While knitting, I’ve also been listening to the audiobook, A Wizard of Earthsea, by Ursula K. Le Guin, which I picked up at the library last week. It’s read by one of my favorite narrators, Rob Ingles, who also narrated the audiobook versions of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and it is wonderful to listen to while knitting! What a wonderful reader! So, with no school today in celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I am certainly enjoying my knitting/listening time!
