That's where I've been all this time..trying to produce something worthy of being shown off! ;) I had a major a-ha moment late last night. Here's the result as of today: This, my friends would be my new and improved chevron. Like my title says, third time's a charm. ;) Can I tell you I'm so much happier with this color combo than the first two I tried? And the solid green yarn I was using for the second attempt at a chevron can now go towards my hedera socks. :) Yay! I stop after every couple of rows to admire the pretty colors coming out. This scarf is definitely more me and has many colors that I love. :)
The other thing that has been in the works is this: I was further along but I have frogged this puppy three times already and I am now, finally, on the right track. I wasn't seeing the diamonds all the way through like in everyone else's. Oh by the way, I am working on the diamond fantasy shawl. I brought along my hedera pattern, my dpn's, and the yarn I want to use with me to work today but I have yet to cast on for them. Maybe tonight.
I went to get my health screening done today at a clinic in Santa Monica. I was hoping that I wouldn't have to spend hours waiting there--I guess I thought this because the clinic was in Santa Monica as opposed to downtown LA. HA! I think the wait was worse at this small clinic than the one downtown! I had to wait to have them process my payment. A few people had to wait @ least 45 minutes to an hour just to get their prescription filled. There isn't a separate pharmacy like @ the clinic downtown. It's pretty much done though. I forgot to bring in my TB test results so I have to schlep back to the clinic tomorrow but after that, I'm in the clear! :) Contract is all signed and I just have the other paperwork to fill out and send in.
I'm counting down till the end of the summer program. I realized last night that by ending a week early, I have to have everything ready a week early. Everything being I have to clean out my students' binders, fill out Hand-Off forms, make sure their percentages are up to date and I think I actually have to do a progress report for each of them. Luckily, there's only 5 students. Oh, I also have to have lesson plans ready for my five students for those five days. I found out that my training for my new job doesn't begin until August 21st so technically, I could finish off the summer program. But you know what? I just want to rest and knit that last week! Is that wrong??
