My original "summer enrichment," was going to be reading and absorbing the wealth of useful info in Amy Herzog's book Knit to Flatter.
I purchased the book and thought "this will be the new thing I learn during the summer." (During the summer I don't have a full teaching schedule, so I try to enrich, somehow. One summer, it was reading the writings of Lincoln; another summer, it was learning Indian shisha embroidery, etc.)
So, I had my plan. Don't ask me how I like Amy's book. I'll tell you I love it, which would lead you to believe that I have pored over it, but I haven't. I love the idea of it and I have loved hearing about it on several podcasts. I haven't even opened it. What an epic fail!
I was so bummed when summer officially ended because I didn't glean the great advice on making garments to fit your body, in Knit to Flatter. I had a sparse student schedule and wallowed in the feeling of having been not unproductive, but rather nonproductive over the summer. I hate that. It makes me feel shamefully lazy.
Then, I was putting something on my Ravelry project page, and realized that I knitted Kate's Shawl and a matching hat and cowl. I also crocheted the Scallop Crochet Scarf. Well, at least I was a little productive.
Oh, yeah, I also taught VBS for a week and began mentoring a young man we know, whose weakness led to criminal activity. He's incarcerated for the time being. At the beginning of the summer, I took an ESL tutoring course, did the required work and extensive extra reading and study, and passed the final test.
Now, I feel better. I will get to Knit to Flatter - I just don't know when.
