At the beginning of class, I told my students that my goal for this class session was for them to have their mitten knitted up to the point where the thumb hole starts. Here's the photographic evidence of their progress.
"OK, everyone put your mitten on your hand and hold it up so I can take a picture for my blog."
A couple of the students didn't quite get to that point, but I think they had a good understanding of the process and hopefully will be back next week with their mitten finished almost to the top when I will teach them how to do the decreases and finish off their mitten.
This was also a good test of my pattern-writing skills and I will have to 'tweak' my pattern a little to make it more understandable for all knitting skill levels. (P.S. to Trixie & Ruth, I will send your patterns after I've made the revisions, OK?)
And getting back to my personality traits, I took a little personality test this morning over at Barefoot Gardener's blog and here are my results:
You Are 1: The Reformer
You're a responsible person - with a clear sense of right and wrong.
High standards are important to you, and you do everything to meet them.
You are your own worst critic, feeling ashamed if you're not perfect.
You have uncompromising integrity, and people expect you to be fair.
At Your Best: You are hopeful, honest, and inspiring. You bring out the best in humanity.
At Your Worst: You are intolerant, judgmental, and picky.
Comment: I think I'm usually at my worst more than my best (at least at work anyway) :-/
Your Fixation: Resentment
Your Primary Fear: Being corrupt.
Your Primary Desire: To be good.
Other Number 1's: Al Gore, Martha Stewart, Gandhi, Celene Dion, and Spock from Star Trek.
(holy crap--Martha Stewart, that's intimidating! no wonder some family members call me "the warden")
Hey, have a little fun this weekend and take the test yourself. Be sure to post a comment and let me know "What Number Are You"
