I had to work the pastry case at school today.
So, I had to work the pastry case at school today. And one woman came up with a snazzy looking scarf on and I asked her if she knitted it. She said no, but a friend did. I got all touchy-feely with her scarf, then remembered "Whoops! I'm supposed to be doing case-business-type-stuff." 'Twas nice, though.

Yesterday, at my knitting group, Trina gave me some yarn!
And here are the boys checking the yarn out:
Some of the girls at school want to learn to knit, so I might have them go buy some needles and let them use some of this.

I've been horribly busy with school
If you want to see what I'm up to, my school blog is Sweet Misa.
I'm still working on my sister's birthday scarf... I showed what I had of it to her, and she seemed to like it a lot. I'm getting some done at school, on the days that I have a break between two of my classes. There are a couple of girls who'd like me to teach them to knit. I'd like to, but I'm not sure if I'm good enough to start showing others how to do it yet.

I got to go to my knitting group yesterday, which makes me happy. I'm still working on my sister's birthday scarf - even though her birthday was on the 23rd of September. If I set aside time every day to work on it, I will have it done within a few days.
And therein lies my problem.
School is way more work than I thought it would be. No, let me rephrase that - school is more work out of class than I thought it would be. I kind of thought that almost everything would be in-class because I assumed most of it would just be hands-on. While I do have the hands on stuff, I've also got a math class, a sanitation class, a baking/desserts theory class, and a cooking theory class.
This has seriously put a damper on everything else I'm doing. I don't have time to knit, make my ATCs, or anything, really. I'm always tired. I can't imagine what it is like for people who work full-time and go to school.
But then again, I think that part of my problem is that I went from having 99% of my time being "free time" to having very little free time. Thusly, my time management skills aren't so great right now. But, I'm starting to get a bit better about it. So, I think that I'll be able to get "back into the swing of things" within a few weeks.
