Rosedale United is underway! For keeps this time, I hope. I had a whole sleeve done while I was at Wildcat but had misgivings about size and ripped it out to begin again. If I followed the instructions, there would have been no problem. But for some unknown reason I'm not real crazy about ribbing, and I like a garter or reverse stockinette edge at bottom and sleeve edge.
Having changed the look of the sleeve, the problem became where to begin the increases as I knit up. This time I got it right--I think. It looks better to my eyes. I'm using Noro Kureyon in color 126. I got about 2/3 done with sleeve number one tonight while I sat empathetically with Mr. Kathie, watching Monday Night Football, featuring the train wreck that is the Green Bay Packers. Much moaning and groaning. I don't know why he tortures himself so. Just masochism, I guess.
This week is looking to be busy, in a stomach-churning sort of way. Wednesday night I'm teaching the first of a series of three Intro to the Internet classes. I have a full-house--twenty students: mostly senior citizens, some of whom have no mouse or even keyboard experience. Does this sound like a recipe for a pounding headache? Yes, it does, but someone has to be the sacrificial lamb served up to teach this kind of thing. Ah well, the people are all nice folks and I can come home afterward and have a nice stiff drink to help decompress.
Thursday is a county-wide library meeting where I have to play somewhat of a role, and right after the meeting I have to attend a luncheon where our library will be presented with an award. Our director will get to do any talking required and I can recede into the background.
Unfortunately, I don't think I dare take knitting along.
