I can't seem to help myself

I keep telling myself that I have too many unfinished projects waiting for me and that there is no way I should start something new. I guess I am just so very weak.

I have started the February Lady Sweater and it is all I can think about right now. I am using Super 10 cotton and so far so good. Even though this is all I have so far.

I have one week left to finish the tulip sweater for my mom's friend. Not the same friend as the last one. I think this is sweater number 4. This one I have been doing only with left overs so the colours are very different. It is a good thing this sweater is for a little girl cuz the colours suggest little girl.

I start my ESL course one Wednesday. It has been a while since I have been in school (not teaching it that is). It is sure going to keep me busy cuz we are fitting a whole course into 2.5 weeks. All day everyday! I wonder if they will notice me knitting in the back?

Time Flies when you are too busy to blink

I knew it had been a while since I posted but I really didn't think it had been THIS long. Wow. There was a while when I didn't have time to knit and then there was a while when I couldn't find my camera. Lucky I found it just in time for the WWKIP day.

I was sad that I couldn't stay for more of the party at Pick up Sticks but my aid conditioner was being installed and my family was over at my house. We had planned it for the week before but plans fell through and no one else in my family seems to understand the importance of Knit in Public day. (I think they believe I am making the whole thing up.

This is a group of the gang knitting on the porch outside the store.

Things have been busy with the wrap up of the school year ( I can't believe that there is only a few school days left).

Besides that I'm still trying to get used to having to take care of a house of my own and stop in wonder at how much work it is. Even more work when you are living with your husband who is also getting used to all this living together business and his 19 year old brother. If I had to have a 19 year old boy living in my house it would be him because I know he is trustworthy but he is 19 and leaves his stuff all over the place. Neither of then can wash a dish to save their life.

I also have dug my garden in the weeks that I wasn't posting.

Another first for me. Anyway now that I'm going to have some more time to myself I will have more time for knitting and posting.
Oh and Oscar turned one at the end of may. Here he is in the back seat of my car.
