I've learned that I/we can handle 4 little girls for 48 hours and not only not have any major issues, but actually have a really good time. I was reminded once again, as I have been so many times since becoming a parent, that sleep is overrated and I can function with remarkably little of it. I was also, blessedly, reminded of how sweet it is when you get it!
I've learned that if you do your prep work and have an open mind, teaching a knitting class is really fun. I think it went OK and I really enjoyed the time I spent with my 3 students on Saturday.
I've learned that my "Fall Into Autumn" swap partner, Rhonda, received her package and seems to really be pleased with it. I am so happy to hear it! What's even better is that we have had some great email conversations and, hopefully, will continue to do so. I feel so lucky to have been paired with her. Here's a picture of the dishcloths I knit for her. They are actually the Spa Cloth set from Gardiner Yarn Works. What fun and quick little knits they were!
Finally, I have learned once again that knitters can be some of the nicest folks around and I am so glad I found this hobby, or better yet "lifestyle", at this point in my life.
P.S. Still no resolution on the work stuff and while A. recovered from her other illness by Friday evening, she is sick with something else now. Oh well, 3 out of 5 isn't too bad...
