Knitting Support for Middle School Knitting Club

As most of you know, I'm a teacher. I have a knitting club at the middle school I teach at. I wrote a grant for our club to receive needles and yarn. I would like to start it up again this year. Last year, our club had over 20 members (a couple of them boys!). To all you knitters out there, please take a look at the grant at the website and if it appeals to you please help us out by donating. We would be greatly appreciative! If you would like to donate any other knitting supplies (yarn, needles, notions, etc.) please email me. We would LOVE to have those. Thanks everyone!

Knitting update-finally!

School is back in session and summer is officially over for me. I hardly got ANY knitting done despite my best efforts. Oh well. There's always the weekends!

If you're on Ravelry, do you ever feel like spending time on there and ignoring your blog? That's the way I've been since I was invited to join Ravelry. I have ignored my blog for too long so I suppose it's time to get back on here.

My husband just had his wisdom teeth cut out yesterday. Oh what a day we had! He's much better today but wow do men whine a lot!

Today I decided to give the Center Square hat from another try. After my first fiasco with this hat, I've had it put aside and ignored it for almost a year. Thanks to Ravelry and looking at so many using that pattern, I've decided to give it another go. The first time I made it it was too short. I made quite a few changes to the pattern. This time I decided to try and follow the pattern. I still think it's going to be too small. I'm a little less than half done. It sure does look small.

I've also started a Clapotis. I'm not using any fancy yarn. I guess I'm kind of testing it out to see how it all works. If all goes well, I'll be ordering some yarn from KnitPicks. It's their Gloss and is in the colorway, Woodland Sage.

Well, back to my Ravelry obsession! Where my stitches at?
