A few nights ago, I finished Bear #96, Sally Sparrow! She’s 🌈-y, just in time for Pride.
Not much knitting has been going on here, due to all-day classes and studies. Today I happened to be working on coursework next to Imagiknit, so I stopped in for a few minutes before my family picked me up. I got to see the amazing Pride Blanket knit by male knitters in San Francisco (I’m pretty sure I met some of them a few weeks ago!).
It’s been a busy week, but I’ve had some bear news! Orlando has been spotted in Africa!
Liz Ten got a heart sewn on! (She’s far right in the top right photo)
And I finished knitting Rose (as in Rose Tyler).
In spite of being home alone for the week, I’m super tired because of classes, coursework, new early schedule, a bus commute, and starting today, fieldwork! I was charged with teaching a short reading lesson tomorrow morning– I decided to try Fantastic Mr. Fox out on the kids, wish me luck!
The other evening I was able to get the Girl to take a walk to the corner mailbox with me, with the ulterior motive of having her take some photos of my Flax sweater in some nice outdoor lighting. I think she took some great pictures!
I sewed four lavender eye pillows and a pair of pajama pants. I’ve made these pajama pants before, but this time I added two inches of length at the top, which makes them much more comfortable. It’s an old McCalls pattern I bought at SCRAP a while back. Tried and true!
I made (all vegan recipes here) cranberry-orange muffins, apple -cinnamon donuts, lemon poppyseed muffins, and apple/pear crisp. (Recipes from Happy Herbivore, Southern-in-law, Big Vegan, and Oh She Glows. There was also orzo salad, and Lentil Joes.
Phew! I’m glad to be out of the kitchen! I cooked so much partly because I was hungry, but also because I’m starting a new schedule this week which will have me out of the house early and having muffins and other such easy-to-take-along foods will come in handy. I ran out of energy to make granola bars, but I have some focaccia dough rising overnight… 😜
