Knitting and School

So in my last post I told you I was going back to school, well this is week 3 and I am still hanging in there. I am taking College Writing Online, and it is a challenge. The class meets once a week in a chat room and talks and then I have assignments to complete as well. The class is accelerated which means 12 weeks squished into 6. I forgot how hard school is, the good part I go to school at Panera and then get to knit afterwards with my Weds Nite Knit Friends.

Today I got my syllabus for my co hort, it made it seem so much more real. It lays out all the classes and says I should be finished by July 2009. I will keep you posted.

Okay for knitting news, it is Preemie Hat Month I knit 11 and did not take any pictures. But I do have two finished objects. First a Christmas Present for my brother in law's wife, in primary colors. She teaches Kindergarten so appropriate colors for her. The pattern was from the Sock Journal and is called Cobblestone Socks.
The picture on the left is a close up of the stitch pattern

I also finished a pair of socks for me out of the new Berocco Sox and I don't remember the colorway I think it is Liverpool.

I will keep you all posted about school and what little knitting I might get done.

School Days

Just a quick update....I decided last fall to return to school and applied to and was accepted in Concordia University's Degree Completion Program in Organizational Management and Leadership. But I still needed to finish up some general ed requirements either because I missed them the first time around or because the credits I had did not meet Concordia's requirements.

So tonight was my first class "College Writing", I think the class went okay. All my classes will be online and the class meets in a chat room and discusses the weeks reading assignment. The amount of homework I imagine is no less than going to regular class but with my schedule that just did not work for me.

I will keep you posted...I think I am the oldest student in the class and kind of worried about it.

Knitting content coming soon I promise as soon as Megan gets my camera back to me.
