I really do like it, but this is Homecoming week. Which means spirit garb. I am just faking jersey day, and twin day I have all worked out. Then there’s Thursday…cammo day.
Yes, I teach in the sticks. Actual cows roam in the field across the street from our high school.
Under normal circumstances I would also skip cammo day, but what with the kids I have this year, and being newly returned at all, I think I need to make a good show.
So my three options are:
1) Do the easy thing and buy a cammo bandana and wear it like a festive scarf
2) Borrow some of my dad’s old airborne ranger gear
3) Make a pink/green camo skirt (and yes, I can get the fabric for like $2 a yard)
I was leaning towards three until I remembered my doctor’s appt that afternoon. Thoughts? Opinions?
Anyhoo, knitting at school has been a kick. We have a pretty active knitting club. My computer guys are fascinated by the socks/vests/sweaters I leave on my desk. Frankly I’ve had almost no time to knit this week, what with the husband out of town and all, but it is amazing. The kids that are the most reluctant to talk or do anything all have some story about their Mumma (translation: mom) or Memaw (grandma) and the blanket/sweater/scarf they knit for them.
It may be the sticks, but handcrafting is a big part of life out here, which I love.
Girls and I are about to head out to the yarn store. I need some red sock yarn for spirit Fridays.
