I am happy to announce that at least one sleeve is almost finished
I’m not going to jinx myself by saying “I hope to have it finished by such and such a date”, instead my new motto is “it’s done when it’s done ok?” No pressure, just fun.
With all the excitement about having an almost finished sleeve, I nearly forgot that the spring session of after school knitting starts tomorrow, which would be all fine and dandy had the knitting needles I ordered two weeks ago had arrived. I ordered from said website last fall and the needles arrived quickly, however tonight when I checked on the order they were still processing. I sent them a quick email to ask about the order status and when they saw them being shipped out, gently letting them know that while I can allow the students to use my personal knitting needles in class tomorrow, they really do need the needles that the parents paid for.
Toph suggested I cancel my order and head on over to JoAnn’s and purchase some, now that may sound like a fine idea, however that is a $8 difference. If kids decide they are no longer interested in knitting after the class is finished, I’d rather they waste $4 on a pair of needles instead of $12.
Luckily I have at least three girls returning to knitting from last fall, so I sent an email to the parents explaining this situation, asking the older girls to bring their needles, and I would lend the new students mine.
Cross your fingers that the knitting needles arrive tomorrow folks and it’s just a status mistake.
Have a nice night folks!
