Deck Chairs on the Titanic

I administered a writing placement test and a portfolio evaluation for several hundred students this past weekend, tomorrow is my last teaching day for winter quarter, and Friday morning I leave on a family trip to Washington, D.C., after which I will return to determine grades and write narrative evaluations. So, why am I still at the office at 7 p.m. when I should be home packing? Because I suddenly felt compelled to arrange all the items in my Ravelry queue by project type.

After much clicking and shifting back and forth among pages, the cardigans are all together, the shawls are all together, the socks are all together, the baby clothes are all together. I did manage to stop with an initial sorting rather than going on to fine-tuning (swing jackets with swing jackets, curve-hemmed cardigans with curve-hemmed cardigans, etc.), but you know that’s coming.

I’m hoping to manage one small post tomorrow morning with my latest FO, then I’m leaving Melissa in charge of things until my return. She’s got a few tricks up her sleeve—so stay tuned.


P.S. Please join me in fervently hoping that the whole Beatrice/Penny situation won’t go all Lord of the Flies in my absence. I would like to find three cats with four legs and two ears each upon my return.
