As if standing at a welding platform for five hours a day wasn't exhausting enough, now I get to be a math tutor after school for one of the sophomore students. Basic geometry is something he has trouble with, so I'm going to try to help him out.
During my half-hour lunch break each day, I scurry off to a quiet corner of the cafeteria and knit. I'm trying to finish the Acrylicky socks just so I can use the needles for more deserving projects. Working on these socks has confirmed what I already knew: I'm a really slow knitter. In a week of lunches (2.5 hours), I've knit about 5 inches of a 50-stitch-circumference tube. That's... pretty sad, I think. Still, they're ankle socks, so that five-inch section is almost the entire body of the sock. A few more rows, and I'll be turning the heel. Behold, the acrylickyness:
The bag I carry my knitting in these days is this one, which is just big enough for most of my little projects.
I also have a few more Rhinebeck pictures for y'all, here. This one is probably my favorite of the bunch.
