“Knit on it?” Kelly repeated with a smile. “What do you mean?” “Well, whenever I need to think things over, I sit down and knit quietly for a while. It calms my mind, so my thoughts become more ordered or something.”
School’s out! My classroom is closed up for the summer, my desperately needed summer break has finally arrived, and my summer reading has begun!
So as soon as I finished in my classroom, of course I headed for the bookstore right away. But a side-trip to my favorite yarn shop yielded not only a new summer knitting project (a baby blanket for a friend who is in the middle of the adoption process), but also a fun summer read: Knit One, Kill Two, by Maggie Sefton. What a fun store–gorgeous yarns AND fun knitting mysteries!
It was the perfect way for this tired teacher to spend the first weekend of summer break. Now…if only our Pacific Northwest weather (setting new records for a gray, cool, rainy June) would cooperate and let the sun shine so it can feel like summer!
