I finished my first knit project! While looking for my needle stash to begin this dishcloth, I found many, many starter knit projects that I never finished. I had them stuffed at the back of yarn. Shame, shame, shame. lol
My dishcloth –
I made it with Sugar ‘N Cream 100% cotton in Light Teal and size 9 needles. I used the Motorcycle Dishcloth pattern. I’m now working on a simple garter stitch washcloth in Bernat Cotton Tots for the girls for bathtime. They have tons (the joys of having a crocheting mama), but they like variety.
In a little exciting news – I’ve qualified for an interview for the alternative certification program I’ve applied to. My academics had to be approved first and now I get to go in for an interview. Woohoo! If I’m accepted, I start pre-internship training in January and start applying for jobs for the next school year in the spring. I can teach anywhere in the Houston area so this is my chance to decide where in the area we’d like to live. I might apply up on the north side because I miss the tall pine trees (and I won’t have to have mandatory hurricane evacuations up there like I do down here closer to the coast). See, Houston is ginormous and I currently live on the south east side of town which puts me within five miles of Galveston Bay and storm surges from large hurricanes. If I move up on the north side, I’m 50 miles from the shore and more than clear from the storm surges.
