Today was another sub day. I have to enjoy my sub time while I can, because school will be out June 1. Where has this year gone?
When I got home from school, I checked on the chickens. It was so windy, the chicks decided to stay in their house. However, when Dave got home from work, they braved the wind and had fun pecking around their little yard.
I had a little time to tat while subbing, so I was able to make two Ice Drops. The art teacher really liked them, so I added ribbons when I got home, and I will give them to her when I sub at the high school again on Friday. She was interested in my tatting shuttles, and she said she would try to create a flat shuttle for me. I would be thrilled to have one made just for me by Amanda!
This is Dave's busy time of year, so I had a few hours of time to myself after school. I finally started my socks after taking a class on German short row heels with Denise on Saturday. These are worsted weight socks that I will wear around the house. I'm using k3 p1 ribbing, which I haven't tried before. I do like the look! I'm using I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby and size 6 needles. The color is Agean Stripe. It's been quite a few years since I've knit socks, and I figured it was better to start with worsted weight before tackling fingering weight. So far, so good!
