So this will have to do.
I've been AWOL again, but that's only because I've suddenly gotten busy. School's in full swing; I'm teaching again; I've had a client with a monster-sized project going back and forth; and then there's Girl Scouts.
A funny thing happened on the way to my email a couple of weeks ago. The leader of HSH's troop sent out an inocuous-looking note with the date and time of the first meeting. Added to this was: "if you'd like to help out, let me know."
Next thing you know, I'm the Junior co-leader. Odd, for someone who personally never made it past Brownies.*
This is kind of freaking me out. 'Cause you know how good I am with other people's kids.
Hey, I finished a sock.
Pattern: Scent of Lavender by Stephanie van der Linden.
Yarn: Oceanwind Knits Merino Sock in Sienna.
Needle: US1 Addi Turbo.
Mods: None, really. I wish I'd added another pattern repeat for the leg, but I'm not ripping it out now.
Okay, I've got to get back to finishing stuff up so I can gorge on Sing Off tonight. I'm not going to review this season yet. Maybe after they narrow it down from 16 groups. I will say a heartfelt "thank you" to the NBC PTB for 86ing Nicole and her orgiastic commentary, and bringing on a real musician in her place (I think; I may eat those words later).
K out. Show's on.
*Of course, this is hinging on a clean criminal background check. One never knows what one's been up to, does one?
