Two down, two to go

Marvelous Multicolored Mitts

I’ve finished two of my mitts and am working on a third. This one will have a stripe pattern that closely resembles the mitt on the left. I’ll try to replicate the purple/pink pattern for the last mitt. That way, I can wear them matchy-matchy or crazy-colors. Or, maybe I’ll keep one pair and gift the other.

My knitting has slowed down quite a bit lately. I’ve been busy with end-of-year stuff at school. Things are winding down though and next week is our last week before summer break.

The most exciting thing around here is probably the fact that A graduates from high school on Monday. It’s almost impossible to believe. The years have truly flown by. He’s sort of ambivalent about the whole thing, and it is a strange time to be graduating from high school for sure. I think he’s angry and disappointed that it isn’t going to be the experience he planned on. Everyone is doing what they can to make graduation special for the seniors though. All high schools in Denton County will be holding their graduation ceremonies at the Texas Motor Speedway. The students will have the chance to walk across the stage and get their diplomas. It will be projected on the huge screen and live-streamed on the Internet. They really are making the best of a bad situation, and honestly, I think the class of 2020 will have a memorable and special graduation.
