Today was a bland boring day. The only thing of note that was achieved was the recruiting of a teenage convert in my Biology class.
See I knit through the class - the teacher gives us handouts and then proceeds to read them verbatim for the next 3 hours. Thank god I have knitting because otherwise I would go postal sitting on a chemistry stool for 3 hours. I don't know how the other students do it.
On the break one of the girls came over with a set of Susan Bates needles and some Red Heart and told me that she knew how to knit but forgot how to cast on. I showed her the cable cast on and she was off to the races clicking away. The teacher looked a bit wary when he came back from break. Two knitters are better than one. I'm pretty sure he was afraid of the imminent revolution which, of course, will not be televised.
The most enjoyable part is watching her teen eyes go from dead/wary to warm and sincere - man, it is one of the nicest things to see.
I'm on IT conference all day tomorrow so I'm pretty sure I'll have a ton of nerdy delight to share
