Very Long Overdue Update

First, I apologize to those of you who have been checking for posts. I have been quite busy but not knitting much! I finished three and a half weeks of school for my teaching license. That was a lot of work, but we all made it through. I'll know on Tuesday if I've gotten my teaching job. Y'all pray hard because there aren't many options if I don't get the job but as of right now all indications look favorable.

Since I've been away we had a loss in the family. Our sweet kitty Bob passed away. We don't know for sure what happened, but it seems that he got into some poison somehow. We're all very sad he's gone and we really miss him.

The children had their belt testings in Tae Kwon Do. They both did fantastic. It was Savannah's first testing and she handled it pretty well. Chandler is doing such a great job too. You can see video of them here and pictures of their testing here.

I have done some knitting during all of this. I finished a pair of socks! These are just basic sock pattern done in Regia yarn. The colorway is "Clown". I love these. I think they'll be so nice to wear when it's cold and snowy and dreary like it can be here in the winter time.



I also finished the pink sock that I've been knitting on forever. I don't remember the color name though. I decided that I do in fact like the socks that rock. I don't know what the hang up was with finishing the sock. Now I have to make another one and I hope that it doesn't take me months to finish it.



I've now started the Pretty Petals socks and joined the KAL. I've done the ribbing and two pattern repeats in the first sock, and have just now finished the ribbing in the second sock. I hope to catch the second sock up to the first tomorrow.

If all goes well, tomorrow will be my last day of summer break! I start inservice on Wednesday. Wish me luck!

    Oh, I hope you get the job Amy. Good luck girl!
    Sorry about Bob. Losing a pet is so hard.
    I can't wait to see your Pretty Petals socks. My friend Jeanie wrote that pattern. It is a good one!
    See ya in chat!

    Hi Amy,
    I'm wondering how you're doing on the losing weight thing. I've got a bunch to lose, too. Trying to tear myself away from knitting to go and exercise!

    I'm doing pretty well on the weight loss. 30 pounds so far! I've been taking Tae Kwon Do with the kids and it's really helping!
