Life Gets in the Way

I knew that it had been a while since I had blogged, but I had no idea it had been a full month. In my surprise, I could wonder how it happened, except I already know: Life gets in the way. I have been so busy with other things, I have had limited time for knitting. And when I had to divide my few minutes between blogging about knitting and actually knitting, I have to choose knitting. Especially with Christmas looming.

My teacher deadline is December 17th.  Because of the way that the calendar works this year, the 18th is the last day of school before Christmas vacation. So I have to have both sets of mitts finished and wrapped for the kids to take to school that morning.   I have three out if four mitts off the needles, and the fourth in progress. That is doable, but still a bit concerning.

I have an ace in the hole. I have Continuing Legal Education today and tomorrow. (Yesterday too, for that matter, but I mostly did the work I brought with me then.)  I can listen and knit at the same time. People don't always believe me, but I am by this time immune to the looks. I stop knitting and take notes when I need to, so I hope that proves that I can listen and knit at the same time.  I don't know why I need to. I have seen other lawyers on tablets, checking emails, playing solitaire, perusing the internet and reading a book, and no one gives them looks.

This is fiber discrimination!  I would complain, but I am supposed to be paying attention to the speakers, so silence is probably the better option.

Today, it is all about the education.
