I had good intentions of going to the annual Good Friday Walk for Justice in downtown Chicago, but as the snowflakes kept falling this morning, I wimpped out. I also have some papers to grade. I had my second class last night and am so impressed with my students. I really am lucky to be teaching "non-traditional" students rather than typical undergrads. They are so much more motivated.
So instead I am having a quiet day at home: finally got these felted mittens (see them unfelted here) out in the mail to my sister-in-law, whose birthday was almost two months ago. I've got some sweaters felting in the washing machine. I hit the motherload of good colors of wool sweaters at the thrift store last weekend, so I'm hoping to have a bunch of pastels and brights in my shop soon. If anyone has a request for a special order of a particular color, let me know before I put all my packages together.
We are having dinner with our new neighbors this evening. And on Easter Sunday our friends Karen and Jeff are hosting a huge group of 11 adults and 5 kids, four of whom are adopted. We are lucky to have such amazing community here in Chicago.
