This is the next thing I'm knitting. Because, seriously - a sweater and a poem? A poem by Charles Bukowski, no less? It simply does not get any better than that.
I shall call it my Bluebird of Happiness Sweater and it shall be mine and I shall love it, my precious.
In other news, I went back to school today - kids are back later this week. Now I know that this makes me a complete geek (and some of my work friends read this blog and can now mock me mercilessly) but this is the best job ever and and I can hardly wait to start a new year. For one thing, the French department has doubled and I really like my counterpart. For another thing, a teacher from last year has returned, and I am thrilled. Also, I'm going to be so much better now - after all, I'm twice as experienced as I was this time last year.
And there's no marking yet, so really everything is ideal.
Forget what that sappy Christmas carol says: people, this is the most wonderful time of the year.
