Had a wonderful day today. Hubby is home so all is well. =) Church was good as always, in fact, I was asked to attend the Teacher's Development course= 12 weeks of lessons. It's during Gospel Essentials class so I won't be able to teach in there for 3 months, but I am hoping this will be a great course to learn. I took it years ago, but have forgotten much of what I learned in there.
Not sure why they asked me to take that course, as I just recently got the call to be a ward missionary, where I already teach a lot. Normally they ask people to take that class to prepare them for a possible teaching calling.
Guess I will find out...
I have finished the white and then a pink on my BLOG SCARF and am now working on a varigated gray yarn and it should look pretty. It might be my last color as that scarf is getting pretty long now.
Some of you have asked if I prefer knitting to crocheting. Well, I likely do in many ways since I learned when I was 7-- 41 years ago! It's something that comes very naturally to me. BUT... I do love to crochet too and wanted to share a scarf pattern with all of you, that is a pretty shell stitch. It works up pretty quickly and is nice and warm! Would make a great Christmas gift.
