Books to Knit and Crochet By

Crocheting is something I’ve enjoyed for quite a while! I taught myself how to crochet while I was a grad school student, back in 2010.

July 18, 2018: Good Outcome

Last night’s Sips and Stitches event went really well. It was located in Flemington, not far from where I work. I was the only crocheter at the gathering (the group leader does also, but currently does cross-stitching), but I enjoyed meeting others who work with yarn like me.

Since my center is going for re-accredidation this year, I spent this moment gathering notes and materials for what I need. Since this is also a day forContinue reading “February 21, 2018: Compiling”

February 20, 2018: Challenges & Pathways

Today It’s back to managing work with the extra tasks that accompanies it. At our professional developmemt meeting yesterday, we were given the tools needed to create accredidation binders according to age group. At first glance it appears very daunting, and both my partner and myself hold reservations on being paired together. We both haveContinue reading “February 20, 2018: Challenges & Pathways”
