After just three days of school, I really need this three-day weekend. Nothing terrible happened, but spending 7 hours a day with middle-schoolers in 90-degree weather and no air conditioning is exhausting! It was an unusually busy first week. I got three new students on the first day alone -- and more will trickle in. We are getting lots of students from Chicago; I suspect that families are fleeing the increasing violence there.
So, I started this morning with a short bike ride to a cafe to have coffee and knitting with my friend Marsha. The rest of the day is devoted to cleaning and making these:
Thank goodness we have a window AC unit in the kitchen as it's another hot day!
I have feet issues so I have to take regular sitting breaks, which almost always involve knitting. At some point today, I'm going to cast on for the cowl on the cover of the latest Knit-Purl magazine. I'm using Rios, but in a different colorway. It looks like a pretty fast knit.
